Psychosomatic Medicine is a Specialty Section of Frontiers in Psychiatry that aims to publish articles addressing the interplay between biological, psychological and social factors in the manifestation and course of disease.
We aim to publish significant research from key aspects of bio-psycho-social medicine. In particular experimental (animal and translational) as well as clinical studies, including psychotherapy, in the field of eating disorders and obesity, functional/somatoform syndromes (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome, disorders of the brain-gut-interaction), chronic pain, psychiatric comorbidity in somatic disease, psycho-cardiology and psycho-oncology, are welcome. Our goal is to provide a forum for communication and debate, and consequently, to stimulate new research in the field of psychosomatic medicine with the overarching goal to improve the lives of affected patients, their partners and families.

PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Psychosomatic Medicine welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Review and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Psychosomatic Medicine, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Psychosomatic Medicine will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Psychiatry.
