Journal of Health Promotion and Behavior (JHPB) is an electronic, open-access, double blind and peer-reviewed international multidisciplinary and integrative journal in the areas of health promotion and health-related behaviors. It began its publication on May 21, 2015. The journal is published four times yearly. It seeks to understand factors at various layers associated with health behavior and health-impacting policy, and find evidence-based social and behavioral strategies to improve population health status.
JHPB primarily publishes original research articles, but also welcomes reviews covering applied, methodological and theoretical issues with emphasis on studies using multidisciplinary or integrative approaches. The scope of JHPB includes the broader definition of health promotion involving public policy that addresses broader health determinants such as income, housing, cigarette advertisement, food security, employment, and quality working conditions. It covers a broad range of topics in psychology, sociology, anthropology, communication, education, nursing, public health, and the allied health profession, as they are related to health promotion, health education, health-related behavior and illness.
JHPB welcomes papers that describe theories and concepts, methodologies, policy formulation, organizational change, as well as social and environmental development, using quantitative or qualitative methods. We give special consideration to papers submitted from developing countries, as health promotion and behavior issues impacting populations in the developing world are currently under-documented and underreported in the existing international peer-reviewed journals.
All of the papers published are freely available as downloadable pdf files. JHPB is currently abstracted and indexed in Crossref (with DOI for each article), CABI’s Global Health, BASE, Google Scholar, OAIster (OCLC/ WorldCat), and Indonesian Publication Index (IPI). We are making efforts to get it indexed in even broader international databases.
