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

Frank J. van Lenthe

"Physical activity and a healthy diet play a pivotal role in the prevention of major chronic diseases. Our understanding of the motives and barriers to be active and to eat healthy and our knowledge how to promote these behaviours improves quickly. It is exciting to be involved in a journal that continuously seeks the innovations in this field of research."

Frank J van Lenthe
Editor-in-Chief IJBNPA
