Culture, Medicine and Psychiatry is a cross-cultural peer-reviewed medical journal published quarterly by Springer Science+Business Media.

History[edit]

The journal was established in 1977 by Arthur Kleinman (Harvard University), who was editor-in-chief until 1986.[1] Kleinman was succeeded by Byron Good (Harvard University), with Mary-Jo DelVecchio Good (Harvard University) serving as co-editor from 1992 through 2004. In 2004, Anne Becker (Harvard Medical School) and Peter J. Guarnaccia (Rutgers University), became co-editors-in-chief and served until 2007.[2][3] They were succeeded in 2007 by Atwood D. Gaines (Case Western Reserve University). At this time, a range of new categories of scholarly contributions were introduced (Circumstantial Deliveries, Illness Narratives, Communiqués, Opinions, and Cultural Case Studies), in addition to the regular research articles.[4] The scope of the journal was also expanded to include not only the social sciences of medicine but also the histories and philosophies of medicine and science and bioethics.

Scope[edit]

The journal nowadays describes itself as an "international and interdisciplinary forum for the publication of work in the fields of medical and psychiatric anthropology, cross-cultural psychiatry, and associated cross-societal and clinical epidemiological studies".[5]
