About the Journal


The IJBMC (International Journal of Body, Mind and Culture) is an international peer-reviewed interdisciplinary medical journal and a fully “online first” publication. Our publishing model—”continuous publication”— means that all articles appear on ijbmc.orj before being included in an issue of the print journal.

The website is updated weekly with the IJBMC’s latest theoretical and original research, case reports, education, news, and comment articles, as well as. All the IJBMC’s research is published with open access and up to 5000 word counts. There is an exception for theoretical paper that could be more than the word limitation of the journal.

The IJBMC’s mission is influence to lead the debate on health and to engage, inform, and stimulate doctors, researchers, and other health professionals in ways that will design more humanistic health promotion and clinical settings. We aim to help health system managers and therapists to make more integrative decisions.

Psychosomatic Medicine and Psycho-Oncology Alliance is the result of more than a decade of joint scientific activity between the Department of Psychosomatic and Psychotherapy of the University of Freiburg, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences and the Institute of Danesh-e-Tandorosti. Holding 5 international conferences, various training courses in Iran and Germany in the form of summer schools, post-doctoral psychosomatic courses with a joint degree between Iran and Germany and the approval of three training projects with the German Academic Exchange Institute (DAAD) are the most important achievements of this alliance.

The latest project approved by DAAD was to develop a Psycho-Oncologic educational curriculum in Iran that continues from 2019 to 2022 and was approved in collaboration with Ala Cancer Prevention and Control Center (Macsa), which is the largest NGO active in the field of supportive and palliative care in Iran.

The first step was “International Conference and Symposium on Psycho-Oncology” which held on 7-9th July 2019 in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. The second step is “International Short-term Psycho-oncology Course” which is steel ongoing. Due to pandemic conditions, it was not possible to hold classes in person.
