An updated version of this page is at http://www.interscience.wiley.com/jpages/1532-3005/aims.html Stress is a normal component of life and a number of mechanisms exist to cope with its effects. The stresses that challenge our existence in modern society may result in failure of these coping mechanisms with resultant stress-induced illness. The aim of the journal therefore is to provide a forum for discussion of all aspects of stress which affect the individual in both health and disease. The Journal explores the subject from as many aspects as possible so that when stress becomes a consideration health information can be presented as to the best ways by which to minimise its effects.
