Abstract

This research aimed to review, analyze, and synthesize information regarding the contents of the published work in the International Journal of Behavioral Science (IJBS), right from its inception in 2006 till 2014 (a period of 9 years). For the research synthesis of the published work, the authors adapted the technique of quantitative content analysis. There were 86 publications in the IJBS in the selected period, which included a mix of research papers (n=70), academic articles (n=11), research proposals (n=2), and book reviews (n=3).  For collecting the relevant data, a recording form was created. The synthesis of this research is shared in the form of research findings, which highlight the characteristics of this journal, the diversity in its authorship, the multi-disciplinary contributions from various academic fields, and the various perspectives of the methodologies used in the articles. Finally the findings are discussed in terms of their salience to the journal, to the development of the behavioral sciences and to the academicians and practitioners of behavioral sciences.
