The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society

The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society offers an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of issues at the intersection of human physiology and social life conditions. It is a focal point for scholarly and practice-based discussion in a time of growing public and research awareness of the relations between health and social wellbeing. The concept of “health and wellness” impacts all members of society, whether at a personal level in the positive senses of life-satisfaction and exhilaration, or problematically, through the cost and availability of remedial healthcare. Contributions to the journal range from broad scientific, sociological, philosophical, and policy explorations to detailed studies of particular physiological and social dynamics. As well as papers of a traditional scholarly type, this journal invites case studies that take the form of presentations of practice—including documentation of socially-engaged practices and exegeses analyzing the effects of those practices.
