For more than thirty years, researchers, educators, mental health professionals, sociologists, and policymakers have turned to the Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences (HJBS) for the latest research and analysis on Hispanic issues. Each quarterly issue of HJBS provides the latest theoretical work, research studies, and analysis that readers and researchers need to stay on top of this dynamic field. Distinguished experts from diverse fields of study contribute timely scholarly articles on the latest behavioral research on a wide variety of Hispanic concerns, including cultural assimilation, communication barriers, intergroup relations, employment discrimination, substance abuse, AIDS prevention, family dynamics, and minority poverty.

The Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences is multidisciplinary and comprehensive, providing coverage of relevant issues from the fields of sociology, anthropology, psychology, education, linguistics, public health, economics, and political science.

The Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences publishes empirical articles, multiple case study reports, critical reviews of literature, conceptual articles, reports of new instruments, and scholarly notes of theoretical or methodological interest to Hispanic populations. The multidisciplinary focus of HJBS encompasses the fields of anthropology, economics, education, linguistics, political science, psychology, psychiatry, public health, and sociology.
