The Journal of Health Service Psychology is a peer-reviewed, clinical journal that publishes articles of direct clinical relevance to health service psychologists and other behavioral health practitioners. The unifying theme is that submissions must address a current clinical issue or practice challenge and to the maximum extent possible be of immediate applicability to clinicians. Clinical topics in both mental health and physical health are appropriate, and submissions on integrated care delivery are of particular interest. Please observe our specific format for articles, which includes an opening clinical vignette, several descriptive sections pertaining to the clinical issue, a closing clinical summary section, and a summation of major key clinical considerations at the end. JHSP does not publish basic research, qualitative studies, case studies, position/review papers, or theoretical analyses.
