  • Special Issue on the Science of Laughter

    The Journal of Nonverbal Behavior invites manuscripts for a Special Issue on the Science of Laughter. Although studies integrating humor and laughter are welcome, this issue is intended to advance our scientific understanding of laughter in its own right. This special issue welcomes empirical and theoretical papers from anthropology, communication, psychology. ethology, biology, affective science, relationship science, and others with an eye toward integrating disparate literatures on this interesting topic.

    Submission Deadline: September 15, 2021

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
