Aims ans Scope


Journal of Health Promotion and Behavior (JHPB) is an electronic, open-access, double blind, and peer-reviewed journal in the areas of health promotion, health behavior, and health education. The journal began its publication on May 21, 2015, and it is published four times yearly. It seeks to understand factors at various layers associated with health behavior, lifestyle, and health-impacting policy. It provides with a platform to find strategies to improve population health status.


The JHPB covers a broad range of topics including 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 on the 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 journals. All of the papers published are freely available as downloadable pdf files.
