Health Education & Behavior

Health Education and Behavior

An official publication of the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE). The peer-reviewed journal publishes authoritative empirical research and commentary on critical health issues of interest to a broad range of professionals whose work involves understanding factors associated with health behavior and evidence-based social and behavioral strategies to improve health status.

The journal audience consists primarily of researchers and practitioners in health behavior and health education. Typical manuscripts published in the journal include empirical research using qualitative or quantitative methods; formative, process, and outcome evaluations; and literature reviews. Each manuscript submitted is expected to include implications for theory, policy, and/or practice in the discussion section. If a study assesses an intervention, a description of the intervention should be included in the methods section of the manuscript.
