Elsevier to Publish Psychosomatics: Official Journal of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine

Publishing partnership to help advance excellence in consultation-liaison psychiatry

New York, NY, 10 November, 2010 – Elsevier, the world’s leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information, announced today that it is partnering with the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine (APM) to publish Psychosomatics, the official journal of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine. The announcement, made at the annual APM meeting in Marco Island, Florida, marks an important move by the APM and Elsevier to increase the reach of the journal, particularly to a new generation of psychiatrists, and to promote consultation-liaison psychiatry as a field of growing importance. Elsevier will begin publication of the journal as of the first issue of 2011.

Elsevier Publishing Director Josh Spieler said, “This is the next step in the evolution of Psychosomatics as an international journal committed to helping its readers achieve excellence in the clinical care of patients with psychiatric and medical comorbidity.” Elsevier’s extensive network of global resources and publishing solutions, including Sciverse ScienceDirect, the world’s premier full-text scientific database with more than 10 million peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters and archives dating back as far as 1823, will help APM increase the reach and growth of Psychosomatics worldwide. At the same time, the new partnership adds important content to the Elsevier portfolio, enabling the publisher to continue its growth as the market leader in psychiatry journal publishing in North America and internationally.

Psychosomatics: The Journal of Consultation and Liaison Psychiatry is the official journal of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine. Peer-reviewed and included in leading abstracting/indexing services such as Index Medicus/MEDLINE, Psychosomatics is published six times a year and is edited by Theodore A. Stern, MD, Chief of the Psychiatric Consultation Service at Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
