About the Journal

Aims and Scope 

The Journal of Behavioral Science (TJBS) is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed and open access scholarly journal that has been published by the Behavioral Science Research Institute (BSRI), at Srinakharinwirot University, Bangkok, Thailand since 2006.

The aim of this journal is to endow a platform for authors to publish their original academic work that seeks explanations for understanding behavior through an interdisciplinary perspective of behavioral sciences, that shows an integration and application of knowledge from various disciplines such as psychology, sociology, education, economics, management, health sciences, social sciences, and others. Authors are recommended to use advanced research methodology (whether quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods) in their submissions.

Furthermore, authors should highlight the original contributions to behavioral science knowledge (such as in content, research, application). The authors should clearly mention the behavioral science implications of their results for policy, practice, or theory.

Article types

The journal offers an international forum for peer-reviewed original articles (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods), review articles (critical review and systematic review), commentaries (editorial notes, letters to the editor, and viewpoint), and book reviews.

Journal indexing

Our journal is indexed in well reputed national and international databases for journals. While it is indexed in the Tier 1 database of the Thai-journal Citation Index (TCI), on the international front the journal is indexed in the prestigious SCOPUS database, in the ASEAN Citation Index (ACI), and also included in the list of journals hosted by the EBSCO database. The journal is also indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) hosted by the Web of Science (previously known as ISI Web of Knowledge).

Submission process

Authors may send their original submissions through the online system. Accepted submissions go through a systematic double-blind peer review and feedback process.
