Oxford University Press USA

Oxford University Press and the Society of Behavioral Medicine are pleased to announce their new partnership to publish Annals of Behavioral Medicine and Translational Behavioral Medicine, the society's two peer-reviewed, Journal Citation Reports indexed journals.

Annals of Behavioral Medicine, the society's flagship journal, publishes original empirical articles on behavioral medicine and the integration of biological, psychosocial, and behavioral factors and principles. ABM holds an Impact Factor of 2.976 and a five year Impact Factor of 4.508.

Translational Behavioral Medicine publishes content that engages, informs, and catalyzes dialogue about behavioral medicine among the research, practice, and policy communities. TBM began receiving an Impact Factor in 2015 and currently holds an Impact Factor of 2.821.

"SBM has a longstanding dedication to research and translation. Oxford Journals has a cutting edge digital platform and a broad view of the quickly evolving world of journal publishing. Together, we form a powerful partnership. I know we will extend the impact of our journals and the translation of our research," said SBM President Gary Bennett, PhD.

Alison Denby, publishing director for Oxford Journals, said, "We are thrilled to be publishing the Society of Behavioral Medicine journals starting in 2018. We look forward to working closely with the SBM to raise the journals' global visibility and insure that the content has the greatest possible positive impact on global health outcomes. The SBM is an energetic and engaged society and we believe that supporting them with OUP's committed staff should enable the journals to continue to be leaders in the field of behavioral medicine."

Oxford Journals is a division of Oxford University Press, which publishes over 300 academic and research journals covering a broad range of subject areas, two thirds of which are published in collaboration with learned societies and other international organizations. Oxford Journals has been publishing journals for more than a century and, as part of the world's largest university press, has more than 500 years of publishing expertise behind it.

The Society of Behavioral Medicine is a multidisciplinary organization of clinicians, educators, and scientists dedicated to promoting the study of the interactions of behavior with biology and the environment, and then applying that knowledge to improve the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, and populations.
