Description

Body Image is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality, scientific articles on body image and human physical appearance. Body image is a multi-faceted concept that refers to persons' perceptions and attitudes about their own body, particularly but not exclusively its appearance. The journal invites contributions from a broad range of disciplines - psychological science, other social and behavioral sciences, and medical and health sciences. The journal publishes original research articles, brief research reports, theoretical and review papers, and science-based practitioner reports of interest. The journal gives an annual award for the best doctoral dissertation in this field.

Suitable topics for of manuscripts include:

•The effects of body image and physical characteristics (e.g., body size, attractiveness, physical disfigurements or disorders) on psychological functioning, interpersonal processes, and quality of life;
•Body image and physical appearance in the full range of medical and allied health contexts;
•Body image and physical appearance in diverse cultural contexts;
•Validation of assessments of the multidimensional body image construct;
•Factors that influence positive and negative body image development;
•Adaptive and maladaptive body image processes and their clinically relevant consequences on psychosocial functioning and quality of life;
•Relationship of body image to behavioral variables (e.g., exercise and other physical activity, eating and weight-control behaviors, grooming and appearance-modifying behaviors, and social behaviors);
•Scientific evaluation of interventions to promote positive body image or to prevent or treat body image difficulties and disorders.
