About TORTURE Journal
Journal on Rehabilitation of Torture Victims and Prevention of Torture
Launched in 1991 and re-launched in 2004 with a new scope and format, the journal seeks to enhance the understanding and cooperation in this field through diverse approaches.
The publication is intended to provide a multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of original research and systematic reviews among professionals concerned with the biomedical, psychological and social interface of torture.
The focus is not only on biomedicine, psychology and rehabilitation, but also on epidemiology, social sciences and other disciplines related to torture. The editors wish to encourage dialogue among experts whose diverse cultures and experiences provide innovative and challenging knowledge to existing practice and theories.
TORTURE is indexed in MEDLINE, the world’s largest and most respected database of biomedical literature, which represents an international acknowledgement of the publication’s value as a leading periodic on torture and the examination and treatment of torture sequels.
As a number of the journal's recipients face democratic and economic restrictions or live in countries where torture and human rights violations are prevalent, the IRCT has decided to distribute the journal free of charge to health professionals and anonymously to anyone who is interested.
