The Journal of Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences(JSBHS), sponsored by Walden University, is a peer-reviewed, online, interdisciplinary journal focusing on theoretically-based research that addresses contemporary national and international issues. JSBHS articles include peer-reviewed research reports, brief reports, comprehensive literature reviews, book reviews, and student research. Publication in JSBHS is always free to authors.

The objectives of the JSBHS are to:

  • Encourage dialogue between scholars and practitioners in the social, behavioral, and health sciences that fosters integration of theoretically-based empirical research with practice.
  • Inform the relationship between practice and research in the social, behavioral, and health sciences.
