Call for Papers

The Achieve Journal of Behavioral Health, Religion, and Community (AJBHRC) is dedicated to the publication of original, peer-reviewed articles at the intersection of behavioral health science, clinical practice, religion, and community.

We are currently accepting submissions for original papers with direct relevance to traditional and self-insulating Jewish or historically underserved and understudied religious and traditional populations. The journal has four primary sections:

Research: New research articles (quantitative and qualitative) on topics relevant to behavioral health, clinical practice, religion, and community. 
Clinical Practice and Treatment: Articles on clinical practice and treatment in the traditional Orthodox Jewish community and other insular communities.
Community: Studies and observations related to community, its experience, dynamics, engagement, and impacts.
Intersection: Topics at the intersection of contemporary behavioral science, traditional text, religious experience, culture, and law. 

The Journal maintains a strong interdisciplinary view. Submissions are accepted across many fields, including psychology, medicine, social work, counseling, sociology, epidemiology, public health, nursing, pastoral care, philosophy, religion, law, history, and public policy. We will also consider manuscripts that address contemporary behavioral science, psychological theory and their relationship to religious practice/belief, traditional religious text, and law.

The Journal is published by Achieve Behavioral Health and welcomes submissions from authors worldwide, publishing articles that support the professional and educational needs of its readers.
Manuscripts are submitted via the online submission system. Please visit the Author Guidelines, under the Submissions tab, to prepare your submission.
