The Journal of Health Service Psychology is a translational and clinical journal which publishes articles of direct clinical relevance to Health Service Psychologists and other behavioral health practitioners. Data-based empirical investigations of clinical challenges, reviews, meta-analysis, evidence-based practice analyses (e.g., outcomes of disease management protocols), and well-constructed case series are considered. The unifying theme is that they must address a current clinical issue or practice challenge and to the maximum extent possible be of immediate applicability to clinicians. Clinical topics in both mental health and physical health are appropriate, and submissions on integrated care delivery are of particular interest. Empirical articles must include a section entitled "Clinical Applications." JHSP does not publish basic research or theoretical analyses.
