Science Impact Factor


The  Journal of Psychology & Behavioral Studies (ISSN: 2148-0664) is an open access journal that publishes high-quality solicited and unsolicited articles, in English, in all areas of Psychology and Behavioral sciences.

Journal of Psychology & Behavioral Studiesis a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes and short communications in the areas of psychology and behavioral sciences. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Submissions of original articles in English from scientists around the world on relevant subjects are welcome.

All submitted papers should report original and unpublished experimental or theoretical research results, and they will be peer-reviewed. Papers submitted to the journal should meet those criteria and must not be under consideration for publishing elsewhere.

The journal publishes several types of articles:

Theoretically driven and rigorously conducted empirical investigations that extend conceptual understanding (original investigations or meta-analyses);

heory development that synthesizes literature and creates new theory of psychological phenomena that will stimulate novel research (not extended literature reviews that do not advance theory);

Descriptive research on applied psychological phenomena lacking basic knowledge in the literature that will provide a foundation for building new knowledge and theory (such studies should be directed at providing novel data on important and unknown phenomena, e.g., time frames for team development or socialization; dynamics of affect, performance, or other behaviors; discovery and documentation of new, important, and meaningful phenomena); and

Rigorously conducted qualitative research on phenomena that are difficult to capture with quantitative methods.

The journal accepts work that is conducted in the field or in the laboratory, where the data (quantitative or qualitative) are analyzed with elegant or simple statistics, so long as the data or theoretical synthesis advances understanding of psychological phenomena and human behavior that have practical implications.
