Translational Behavioral Medicine: Practice, Policy, Research

A New Society of Behavioral Medicion Journal Issues a Call for Papers
Translational Behavioral Medicine (TBM) issues a call for manuscripts that engage, inform, and catalyze dialogue between the research, practice, and policy communities about behavioral medicine. We seek research that brings actionable science to practitioners and that prompts debate on policy issues that surround implementing the evidence. Original empirical studies on the effectiveness or implementation of interventions are especially welcome. Manuscripts should explicitly state the impact of the findings for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.
We also seek case studies that highlight practice and policy questions in need of research and that describe innovative ways in which evidence-based practices have been implemented in under-resourced settings. Additionally, TBM invites original systematic reviews of the effectiveness of interventions and policies. Also welcome are short pieces that synopsize new reviews, practice guidelines, and practice tools released elsewhere. Above all else, we seek articles with the potential to change how behavioral medicine is practiced, researched, and translated into policy.
