Journal Of Happiness Studies (JOHS)

Affiliated with ISQOLS

JOHS is a peer reviewed scientific journal devoted to subjective well being. It covers both cognitive evaluations of life (e.g., life satisfaction) and affective enjoyment of life (e.g., joy). Next to contributions on appraisal of life-as-a-whole, the journal accepts contributions on life domains (such as job satisfaction) and life aspects (such as perceived meaning of life). JOHS provides a forum for two main traditions in happiness research: (1) speculative reflection on the good life, and (2) empirical investigation of subjective well being. Contributions from all sciences are welcomed: alpha sciences (particularly philosophy), beta sciences (especially health-related QOL research), and gamma sciences (not only psychology and sociology but also economics).
