Dear AAHB Members,

Today, the American Academy of Health Behavior is proud to announce the launch of our new journal, Health Behavior Research.  This journal is the product of the hard work of many of our members over the past several years.  We hope that the papers in this journal will help us to advance the field with strong empirical articles and insightful theoretical pieces.  The journal is now officially accepting papers with a schedule to publish the first issue in the spring.  

We have developed an outstanding editorial board with Past President and AAHB Fellow, Rita DeBate serving as Editor-in-Chief and Lawrence Green and Steven Sussman, both AAHB Research Laureates serving as Honorary Laureate editors.  Nine additional AAHB Fellows have agreed to serve as members of the editorial board creating an outstanding group of researchers to lead this journal.

For guidelines on article submissions and more information, please visit

This is our journal.  Let’s make it great!
