Aims and Scope


The aim of The Journal of Behavioral Science (TJBS) is to provide a platform for authors to publish their original academic work that seeks explanations for human behavior at various levels (individual, group, organizational and socio-cultural), through an interdisciplinary perspective of the behavioral sciences.

Scope: an interdisciplinary approach and advanced research methodology

The submitted work should focus on human behavior by integrating knowledge (concepts and theories) from various disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, education, health behavior, management, economics, political science, and others. Each submission should highlight the contributions to behavioral science knowledge and application (such as policy or practice). Authors are recommended to highlight the use of advanced research methodology (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods) in their submissions.

Submission type and process:

Authors may send their original submissions in the form of research articles, systematic academic review articles, or book reviews. Accepted submissions go through a systematic double blind peer review and feedback process. It is strongly recommended that a manuscript follows the TJBS preparation guidelines and checklist. The editorial team supports authors to publish highest quality of academic work in behavioral science.
