The world's most-cited Multidisciplinary Psychology journal
This section strives to advance the science and practice of evidence-based health psychology and behavioral medicine. It particularly favors contributions concerned with psychological, biobehavioral, and environmental factors in mental health, physical health, well-being, illness, and other relevant issues in health psychology. It also addresses the interpersonal, organizational, social, and cultural contexts in which psychological and health processes are shaped and challenged.
The mission of this section is to provide an international platform to promote interdisciplinary research across the lifespan in health psychology, and studies of diverse populations. We encourage the submission of traditional and innovative basic, clinical, and applied research articles, and education and service activities that advance our understanding of health, well-being, and illness using quantitative, qualitative, and/or critically oriented approaches.
We welcome a variety of contributions, including:
Hereby, we encourage submissions concerning behavioral medicine, psycho-oncology, psychogeriatry, psychocardiology, cardiac psychology, pain management, healthy lifestyle programs (such as programs to promote physical activity), cyberpathology, substance abuse and addiction to (prescribed) drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, internet, and social media. Furthermore, this section is open to meta-analyses, critical reviews, systematic reviews, advanced methodological guidance, user-friendly tutorials, and advances in research methods in dealing with pressing health related issues.
