About the Journal

Publishing original, refereed papers, Health Education Research deals with all the vital issues involved in health education and promotion worldwide - providing a valuable link between the health education research and practice communities.

Health Education Research gives highest priority to original research focused on health education and promotion research, particularly intervention studies with solid research designs. The journal welcomes rigorous qualitative studies or those that concentrate on hard-to-reach populations. Because of the high number of submissions, cross sectional studies, instrument development, psychometric studies, and pilot data are assigned lower priority. Medical or professional health education studies are not within the scope of the journal’s themes unless they are directly related to the broad area of changing health behaviors and the conditions that influence health.
