Call for Papers: Special Issue of Journal of Health Psychology

The Journal of Health Psychology is planning a Special Issue on “Sexual Health Psychology”, guest edited by Poul Rohleder (University of East London) and Paul Flowers (Glasgow Caledonian University). The Special Issue will be published in 2018. Papers are invited from researchers exploring any of the diverse aspects of sexual health psychology.

Sexual health has in recent years been understood as an important aspect of sexual rights and human rights and is identified more broadly than just the absence of disease. Within this special issue we firmly embrace the holistic definition of the World Health Organisation.

We are looking for submissions that take new directions in researching sexual health. We are looking for papers that use quantitative, qualitative or mixed method approaches. We are particularly interested in papers that use novel methods, novel analytic techniques, further develop theory, focus on under-explored topics, or examine sexual health as it intersects with other areas of interest in reflecting an international focus, and so welcome submissions of manuscripts from researchers in different parts of the world. We are also interested in interdisciplinary perspectives and collaborations.

Possible topics might include (but not limited to):

social, cultural and structural determinants of sexual health
sexual health of marginalised or oppressed identities (e.g. people with disabilities, transgender persons, refugees).
llving a fulfilling sexual life when living with chronic conditions (e.g. HIV)
sexual coercion, discrimination and violence
sexual health and well-being
sexual health and sexual rights
critical approaches to sexual health
the development of new, novel interventions for sexual health
the evaluation of interventions that improve sexual health

Please submit manuscripts to Journal of Health Psychology by 31 May 2017 at its submission portal.

If you have any enquiries regarding ideas for a manuscript, you may contact either Poul Rohdeler (p.a.rohleder@uel.ac.uk) or Paul Flowers (p.flowers@gcu.ac.uk)
