Aims and scope

BioPsychoSocial Medicine is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that encompasses all aspects of the interrelationships between the biological, psychological, social, and behavioral factors of health and illness.

BioPsychoSocial Medicine is the official journal of the Japanese Society of Psychosomatic Medicine, and publishes research on psychosomatic disorders and diseases that are characterized by objective organic changes and/or functional changes that could be induced, progressed, aggravated, or exacerbated by psychological, social, and/or behavioral factors and their associated psychosomatic treatments.

The journal emphasizes a bio-psycho-social approach to illness and health, covering the behavioral sciences, social sciences, neuroscience, stress physiology and epidemiology, psycho-neuro-endocrinology/ immunology, and psycho-oncology, all of which are associated with mind-body interactions.

To stimulate research in psychosomatic medicine and to enhance the submission of high quality manuscripts, BioPsychoSocial Medicine annually sponsors "The Ikemi Award", which is presented to the recipient at the general assembly of the Japanese Society of Psychosomatic Medicine each year. For more information, please visit the award page.
