The IPPA’s Health and Well-Being Division’s periodical, The Chronicle of Advances in Positive Health and Well-Being, is dedicated to sharing with its members the latest research related to the current body of knowledge on health maintenance, total well-being, and illness prevention.

The publication welcomes submissions from IPPA members and external parties on a rolling basis. Articles can be in the form of extended abstracts of current studies in press or recently published, reviews of studies by members of related work, critical book reviews, suggestions for novel media methodologies for data collection, and for best practices applications in health care settings as those areas listed below. Submissions will be reviewed by associate editors for timeliness and appropriateness, with final selections for publication vetted by the co-Editors.

Submission Process:

To submit content for the publication, please email We will accept submissions on a rolling basis. To be considered for the winter 2018 publication, we must receive your content by November 15th, 2017.

Publication:  This chronicle is to be published twice yearly.

Given the wide range of our international audience, preference will be given to those submissions written simply and clearly in North American English, using typical manuscript formatting for American Psychological Association journals.

Abstracts of current studies: These can be up to 1,000 words in length in text, with one table and figure, following the usual sequence of introduction, method, results, discussion, and conclusion sections, including a clearly stated hypothesis.

Reviews of related works in other journals: These can be up to 300 words in length, including their complete author references.

Book reviews:  Those of a critical nature can be up to 1,000 words in length, in which they include relevancy to current literature, highlighting of the novel aspects, and any relevant comments regarding need for further elaborations on the book’s subject.

Novel media data-collection methodologies:  These will always be welcome by which information can be captured with maximum confidentially with participants’ permission. These can be up to 1,000 words in length, assuming they are worthy of journal publication in their own right.

Best practices applications: Those best practices, as determined by panels of experts in the specialized areas, can be useful for providing high-level health applications for enhanced well-being in academics, business, clinical/therapy interventions, in exercise and sports sciences, and the military.
