Health Psychology Bulletin was a disruptive open access journal that encouraged full disclosure and explicitly welcomed both direct and conceptual replications, null findings, reports of failed manipulations, as well as empirical papers and reviews.
However, submissions to Health Psychology Bulletin have remained at a relatively low pace since its conception, despite a number of efforts to attract more submissions. Therefore, after a period of discussions and reflections, the European Health Psychology Society (EHPS) Executive Committee has decided to not extend the EHPS' contract with Ubiquity Press, the ethical publisher hosting this journal. As a consequence, no new submissions will be processed anymore.
Health Psychology Bulletin will be archived as of the 6th of June 2023, but all published articles remain accessible through their DOI.
We would like to thank all contributing authors, reviewers, and editorial board members. Maybe we were ahead of the game, but we still believe in Health Psychology Bulletin’s mission to improve publication practices to accelerate scientific progress. So, we will be back - in one way or the other.
