Aims & scope

International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (IJBNPA) is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal devoted to furthering the understanding of the behavioral aspects of diet and physical activity.

IJBNPA is unique in its focus on the behavioral aspects of diet and physical activity; its inclusion of multiple levels of analysis, including populations, groups and individuals; and its inclusion of epidemiology, and behavioral, theoretical and measurement research areas. Manuscripts that present theoretical innovations with respect to diet and physical activity behaviors are of particular interest.

Editor's quote

Russell Jago profile image

"There is clear evidence that maintaining adequate levels of physical activity and eating a well-balanced healthy diet both help to prevent the onset of major chronic diseases. This is, however, a rapidly evolving area and our journal strives to present current research of the highest standard that will inform best practice amongst both clinical practitioners and fellow researchers."

Russell Jago
Editor-in-Chief IJBNPA
