It publishes articles reporting the development of new measures or adaptation of existing ones as well as assessment literature reviews. Next to factor structure measures, contributions focused on the cross-cultural adaptation of existing instruments include additional evidence concerning measure validity and application potential. Following the worldwide expansion of well-being research this journal presents new well-being measures grounded into local traditions or suited for international comparisons. This journal represents an essential tool for researchers and professionals in a variety of disciplines involved in well-being assessment, evaluation, testing, and application, such as psychology, sociology, education, health studies, social work, economics and related social and behavioral sciences.
