International Journal of Body, Mind and Culture

Aims & Scope

Modern medicine is supposed to be in a paradigmatic crisis in terms of the accelerative demographic, epidemiologic, social and discursive Aspects. The ontological, epistemological and methodological gaps in biomedicine lead to a chaotic condition in health believes and behaviors.

Body, Mind & Culture is focused on interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and conceptual research; Theoretical papers, review articles, case reports and clinical trials, which address biopsychosocial interchanges and interactions in the field of health and medicine will be welcomed. The researches should focus on paradigmatic shift and/or humanizing medical practice. All interdisciplinary researches, such as social sciences (e.g., sociology, anthropology, psychology), humanities (e.g., literature, religion, history) and philosophy and arts (e.g., music, cinema), which have an impact on medical education and practice are acceptable. 



The IJBMC (International Journal of Body, Mind & 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.com 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.

All the IJBMC’s research is published with open access and up to 5000 word count. There is an exception for theoretical paper that could be more than the word limitation of the journal. IJBMC’s mission is to influence 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. The IJBMC team is based mainly in Iran and Germany, although we also have editors elsewhere in Europe and in the US.
