The Coronavirus (COVID‐19) global pandemic: Longitudinal Research in Psychology and Health
The COVID-19 pandemic, and the related public health restrictions imposed to curb the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, have had an unprecedented impact on people across the globe. The third wave of the pandemic rages on for many nations, and there are heightened concerns of multiple variants of the virus, while other countries have begun to engage in post-pandemic recovery actions. Despite this heterogeneity, understanding of and intervening on human behavior has an important role in nearly all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this special issue of Psychology and Health, we invite submissions that have focused on longitudinal research in the psychology of physical health and illness related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Specifically, we welcome original research and systematic reviews/meta-analyses related to psychological approaches and interventions in health-related fields.
Suggested topics for articles eligible for this Special Issue include longitudinal research on:
- Psychological aspects of changes in physical illness and COVID-19
- Intervention on health behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery
- Longitudinal tracking and/or prediction of health behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery
- Psychosocial factors in the aetiology of physical illnesses across the COVID-19 pandemic
- Communication and psychologically-based interventions within the individual-health care system interface during COVID-19 and recovery
- Behavioral and psychological mechanisms of physical health during COVID-19
