Behavior and Social Issues
Affiliated with Behaviorists for Social Responsibility, Behavior and Social Issues is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary scientific journal which serves as a primary scholarly outlet for articles that advance the analysis of human social behavior, particularly with regard to understanding and influencing important social problems. The journal is particularly interested in publishing work related to issues with social justice, human rights, and sustainability implications, but all significant social issues are of interest. The journal serves as a nexus for the development of an intellectual community interested in these areas, which receive only modest attention in most behavioral outlets despite their potential importance for society. Articles considered for publication should be grounded in behavior analytic and behavioral systems science. (Please see About the Journal on the menu above to review the Focus and Scope of the journal.)

Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration
What is Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration? Journal of Biomedical Discovery and Collaboration is an Open Access, peer-reviewed online journal that will encompass all aspects of scientific information management and studies of scientific practice, with a particular emphasis on biomedical laboratory investigations. Currently, many scattered disciplines study aspects of scientific practice, including informatics, computer science, sociology, cognitive psychology, scientometrics, rhetoric, and history and philosophy of science. The journal will connect these disparate perspectives with each other, and with contemporary scientific practice.
Online Journal of Public Health Informatics
Interest in informatics as a specialty in the health sciences disciplines reflects the central role that information collection, analysis, and utilization now play in the healthcare sector. New public health threats such as bioterrorism and flu pandemics will demand an improved infrastructure for disseminating information about best practices. The Online Journal of Public Health Informatics (OJPHI) strives to satisfy the growing need for a public health informatics knowledge portal by practitioners, researchers, educators, and policy makers. It is a quarterly open access, open source, peer-reviewed journal.
