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.

In addition to the items listed above, a Special Focus for 2016, is Online Research Methods in the fields of Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences.
