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.
The submitted manuscripts should cover the following-
1. The manuscript should highlight the original contributions to behavioral science
knowledge (such as in content and research). The authors should clearly mention the behavioral science implications of their results for policy, practice, or theory.
2. The content should display an interdisciplinary focus for understanding human
behavior. This implies that the content and the conceptual framework (if any) is
developed by integrating knowledge (concepts and theories) from various disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, education, health behavior, management, economics, political science, and others.
3. Authors are recommended to use advanced research methodology (whether
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.
