Journal of Happiness and Health (JOHAH) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, the aim of which is to become the main platform for sharing advancements in relation to the nexus between various aspects of wellbeing and health. The JOHAH, which is published two times a year, is an open-access that publishes research outcomes with significant contributions to the understanding and improvement of happiness and also includes the study of constructs and processes related to optimal psychological functioning, such as meaning in life, character strengths, resilience, optimism, and hope. The journal is devoted to basic research and professional application on states of optimal human functioning and fulfillment, and the facilitation and promotion of well-being and health. The JOHAH publishes research regarding the happiness and health of populations across the lifespan. It is a journal for academics and researchers, as well as practitioners, such as clinicians, health coaches, consultants, or psychologists.
We invite original, empirical research, theoretical articles, and selected reviews that combine various aspects of wellbeing such as social, emotional, and psychological wellbeing, life satisfaction, positive affect, character strengths, flow, relationships, optimism, hope, quality of life, and similar positive assets in the context of physical and physiological health, its promotion, and maintenance. The JOHAH brings together leading work in wellbeing and health undertook by researchers across different sub-disciplines within psychology (e.g., social, education, and developmental), as well as across other social and behavioral disciplines (e.g., sociology, family studies, and medicine). Topics appropriate for the JOHAH include original research on both the hedonic and eudaimonic perspectives characterizing well-being and human strengths and virtues, as well as applications to psychotherapy and counseling. Furthermore, we encourage the multidisciplinary approach of combining psychology (e.g. coaching, health, positive) with medicine (e.g. lifestyle, preventative), sociology, or economics, in the context of wellbeing. We welcome papers across several domains, encompassing a full range of methodologies and orientations that include educational, cognitive, social, behavioral, preventive, cross-cultural, and developmental perspectives.
