ISQOLS JOURNAL: Applied Research in Quality-of-Life (ARQOL)

Applied Research in Quality-of-Life (ARQOL) is the official journal of The International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies (ISQOLS). The aim of this journal is to publish conceptual, methodological and empirical papers dealing with quality-of-life studies in the applied areas of the natural and social sciences. As the official journal of ISQOLS, it is designed to attract papers that have some direct implications for or impact on practical applications of research on the quality-of-life.

We welcome papers crafted from inter-disciplinary, inter-professional and international perspectives. This research should guide decision making in a variety of professions, industries, nonprofit, and government sectors such as healthcare, travel and tourism, marketing, corporate management, community planning, social work, public administration, human resource management, among others.

The goal is to help decision makers apply performance measures and outcome assessment techniques based on concepts such as well-being, human satisfaction, human development, happiness, wellness and quality of life. The Editorial Review Board is divided into specific sections indicating the broad scope of practice covered by the journal, and the section editors are distinguished scholars from many countries across the globe.

ARQOL is published by Springer Publishing. This journal is free to ISQOLS members and is USD $664/year for non-members. ISQOLS members have online access to ARQOL. Please click here for instructions on how to accesss ARQOL online.
