"Psychology of Well-Being: Theory, Research and Practice promotes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of well-being with the view to providing rigorous, in-depth and cutting edge development from leading scholars and practitioners. An exciting feature will be the exploration of mechanisms which offer insight into the processes underlying well-being. The journal also serves to stimulate discussion and debate which will progress theory, research and practice. The ultimate aim of the journal is to translate this knowledge into practical and effective methods of enhancing well-being for individuals, groups and communities."

Aims and scope

Psychology of Well-Being: Theory, Research and Practice is devoted to understanding the biopsychosocial and behavioural factors leading to enhanced well-being, optimal emotional processing and the prevention of psychological dysfunction. Papers examining the mechanisms underlying the relationships between lifestyle factors, positive psychology interventions, emotion processes and well-being are sought. Other core themes of the journal include the integration of subjective and objective (neurobiological and behavioural) indicators of well-being and emotion, hedonic and eudaimonic perspectives of well-being, systematic emotion regulation strategies, knowledge transfer from laboratory settings to the field, and interdisciplinary approaches to the science of well-being.
