Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine
Increase the impact of your article by publishing open access
Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine (HPBM), an offical partner of European Health Psychology Society (EHPS), publishes open access papers on all aspects of research and practice into psychosocial, behavioral and biomedical influences on health, including:
- Assessment and diagnosis
- Treatment processes and recovery
- Health cognitions and behaviors
- Psychosocial and behavioral prevention interventions
- Psychosocial determinants and consequences of behavior
- Health, illness, and medicine
- Application of advanced information and communication technology
Unique to HPBM, it encourages:
- the publication of (failed) replications and null findings.
- considers all scientific contributions, including protocols of funded studies.
How will publishing in HPBM benefit you?
- As HPBM is an open access journal, once published, papers are immediately free to access online, enabling anyone to read, download, cite and share your research.
- It is endorsed by the EHPS.
- It is listed in the DOAJ and Scopus.
- Fast decisions: 96% of submissions have a decision with 60 days, with 66% within 30 days or less.
- Your data, with permission, will be deposited on Figshare, laying the foundations for more research.
- You will comply with your funder's mandate - many funding agencies and governments are increasingly mandating that the work they fund is made openly available as soon as possible after publication.
- You retain the choice of how people can reuse your article - we recommend the CC-BY publishing licence. However if you prefer – and your funder agrees – you can choose an alternative creative commons licence.
The standard article publishing fee (APC) is US $750, £575, €665.
