Abstract

Psychosomatics is the official journal of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine, the national organization of consultation-liaison psychiatrists. The articles published in Psychosomatics, therefore, represent an important element of the scholarship of consultation-liaison psychiatry, and the evolution of this literature should reflect the development of its knowledge base in the past 40 years. This paper analyzes the content of Psychosomatics over this period and discusses the scientific, academic, and social (including economic and political) factors that have influenced the changes in the content of the journal and, thus, the subspecialty.
