Psychomed is an online scientific journal (ISSN: 1828 – 1516)  covering the area between medicine and behavioural sciences, as the title suggests, with a cognitive and behavioural approach. Thus it gathers research and clinical contributions in psychosocial and behavioural medicine, psychotherapy, health promotion and psychosocial interventions. 

The Journal’s aims are to provide an easy-to-use tool for scientific updating; besides, it is intended as a forum for discussion for those who work or study this area and is meant to become a training ground for all colleagues engaged in clinical work and experimental research. 

Ii is our intention to maintain a high level of methodological quality of the published contributions and to this aim a selection process is set up, and an editorial review as well. Thus, papers will be evaluated in terms of scientific merit, readability, and interest to a general readership by the Editorial Board and referees.

The kind of papers you will find and the submissions we welcome include:
• most recent experimental research in the mentioned areas,
• summary of studies already published in other scientific international journals,
• critical review and meta-analyses of literature,
• innovative forms of psychosocial and therapeutic interventions,
• clinical and clinic-experimental studies,
• clinical case studies or presentation of illustrative case studies accompanied by relevant theoretical references,
• reports of quantitative and qualitative empirical studies,
• protocols of research project as yet not implemented.

You can also find library news, brief communications, congresses, links and international activities. Since 2008 Psychomed has published selections of posters presented in some International Conferences in Cognitive Psychotherapy (ICCP) and Cognitive-Behavior Therapy ( EABCT). 

Psychomed is an initiative and part of the Specialization School of Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapy and Psychosocial Intervention of the Centre of Research in Psychotherapy (CRP) and is supported by the Italian Society of Psychosocial Medicine (SIMPS), Italian Association of Preventive Psychology (AIPRE) and the Association of Studies and Psycho-Social-Educational Training (ASIPSE). 

The cognitive and behavioural approach of the journal reflects the cultural and scientific orientation of these organisms, but we would also like to be a reference point for those researchers and clinicians who want to contribute with original works to the development of the scientific knowledge and to the progress of the correct clinical practises. 

To pursue our major aim, that of being an easily accessible tool for scientific updating, we ask everyone who would like to submit a contribution to respect the editorial regulations of APA (V edition, point 1.07).

Although based in Italy, we would be happy to receive contributions in English as well as Italian.
Three issues are published annually.
