From the Announcement Brochure: About the Journal

“The International Journal of Wellbeing (IJW) publishes timely original high-quality scholarly articles on the topic of wellbeing, broadly construed. Although focused on original ideas, the IJW also publishes review articles and critical notices. We encourage submissions that are genuinely interdisciplinary (i.e. that draw on research from more than one discipline and will be of value to wellbeing researchers from more than one discipline), but we will also consider wellbeing research that is uni-disciplinary if it is of exceptional quality.”

The three editors, supported by a large editorial board and an advisory board, are:

Dan Weijers
