The International Journal of Behavioral Medicine has issued a call for papers for a special issue on the science of dissemination and implementation in behavioural medicine.
They are particularly interested in papers that address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- What theoretical models and approaches are relevant to understanding and improving dissemination, implementation and translation in Behavioural Medicine? What evidence demonstrates the effectiveness of these models and approaches?
- What methods and strategies are being used in dissemination and implementation studies in behavioral medicine?
- How can we maximize the impact of behavioral medicine evidence on public health policy and practice?
They will consider papers that report original research, conceptual or theoretical papers, meta-analyses, systematic reviews, and papers that highlight innovative methodologies. Papers from studies conducted in both developed and developing countries are welcome.
Instructions: Please submit your manuscript by July 1, 2013 following the standard requirements for IJBM articles and are subject to standard editorial and peer review processes.
