Comprehensive Analyses - Six Times a Year!

Environment & Behavior brings you international and interdisciplinary perspectives on the relationships between environments and human behavior. Both population growth and threats to environmental sustainability make the understanding of environment-behavior relationships increasingly critical to human well-being. Explore topics such as:

  • Natural environments and psychological restorativeness
  • Pro-environmental behavior and behavior change
  • Social and psychological processes related to environments of particular settings such as neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, and extreme environments
  • Environmental perception and cognition, such as wayfinding and risk perception
  • Environmental feelings, attachment, and identity
  • Attitudes, values, priming, and norms that relate to environmental behavior
  • Effects of ambient conditions such as noise
  • Societal-level predictors of sustainability policies and designs
  • Environmental problems such as fear, stress, and crowding
  • Effects of innovative designs on human behavior
  • Environments and physical health, from hospitals to walkable neighborhoods and parks
  • Environment & behavior relations for particular groups such as children or elderly people
  • Spatial behavior processes and methods of study
