The Journal of Traumatic Stress, the official publication for the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, is an interdisciplinary forum for the publication of peer-reviewed original papers on biopsychosocial aspects of trauma. Papers focus on theoretical formulations, research, treatment, prevention education/training, cultural aspects of traumatization, and legal and policy concerns.

The Journal of Traumatic Stress serves as a primary reference for professionals who study and treat a broad diversity of people exposed to highly stressful and traumatic events (directly or through their occupational roles), such as war, disaster, accident, violence or abuse (criminal or familial), hostage-taking, or life-threatening illness across all nations and populations.

The journal publishes original articles, brief reports, review papers, commentaries, and, from time to time,
special issues devoted to a single topic.

The Journal of Traumatic Stress is published bimonthly in February, April, June, August, October and December.
