Aims and Scope: The Journal of Primary Prevention

The Journal of Primary Prevention publishes manuscripts that address the prevention of high risk behaviors, the reduction of associated problems and harms, and the promotion and maintenance of healthy functioning and psychosocial wellness.  We publish a wide spectrum of studies that include the epidemiology and determinants of high risk behavior and environments, as well as the development, evaluation, translation, sustainability, and costs and benefits of preventive interventions.

Specific types of papers published in the journal include original research, research methods and practice, brief reports, and literature reviews. The selection of articles for publication is based on their contribution to the field of prevention, clarity of presentation, adequacy of research methodology, and significance of research findings.
