Mission Statement and Content
| The Journal of Behavioral
Health and Medicine contains general interest and discipline specific articles
related to the scientific study of behavioral health. Articles appropriate
for the journal include a) full-length research articles, b) research reports,
c) clinical demonstrations, d) technical articles, and e) book reviews.
Each category is detailed below along with submission guidelines:
Research Articles – a manuscript of full length (20-30
double-spaced pagesapproximately) which may contain multiple
experiments, and are original contributions to
Research Reports – a manuscript of reduced length (no more than 10 double-spaced pages and a single figure or table page), which may be less experimentally rigorous than a Research Article, a replication of or failure to replicate a prior published article, or pilot data that demonstrate a clear relationship between independent and dependent variable(s). The Results and Discussion sections of Reports should be combined.
Clinical Demonstrations - a manuscript of reduced length (no more than 8 double-spaced pages and a single figure or table page) which lack the rigor of a true experimental design, yet do demonstrate behavior change in context of health and medicine. This manuscript should contain an Introduction, Methods/Treatments, Results, and Discussion sections. The Results and Discussion sections of Clinical Demonstrations should be combined.
Technical Article – a manuscript of either full or reduced length, depending on necessity, that describes either a new technology available that would be of interest to researchers or a task-analysis style description of how to utilize existing technology for the conducting of research.
Book Review – a review of a contemporary book related to behavioral health and or medicine not more than three years after the publication data of the book to be reviewed. The review should be no more than 15 double-spaced pages in length.
