Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine
Official Journal of the European Health Psychology Society
Health and healthcare continue to be key areas of interest for the public, the medical community, behavioral and social scientists. After many decades of generally improved health indicators and increasing life expectancy, our current times are now seeing more diverse trends; including improvement in medical care, but also unexpected drops in life expectancies in some geographic areas, due mostly to behavioral, psychological and social reasons.
New sources of anxiety are emerging, including climate change, displacement and widening social inequalities. Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine: An Open Access Journal (HPBM), an official journal of the European Health Psychology Society, is an excellent forum for highlighting and analyzing these dynamics. We publish research which explains the psychosocial dimensions of health and explores the experiences related to health and the body in different cultural contexts.
Our authors also study the appropriateness of different practical approaches to improving the health of global citizens, and are not restricted by paywalls, word restrictions or other limitations of traditional journal formats. Publishing in HPBM means being in conversation with international authors from several disciplines, with a common purpose of considering the psychosocial and experiential dimensions of people around the world to understand and support their health. It also means that your work will be freely accessible to an international multidisciplinary readership. We look forward to receiving your submissions.
