    Special Issue on Positive Psychology


    Positive psychology, as its founder Martin Seligman said, is "scientific study of optimal human functioning that aims to discover and promote the factors that allow individuals and communities to thrive". It is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living, which includes the biological, personal, relational, institutional, cultural, and global dimensions of life.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Positive Psychology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Positive psychotherapy
    • Optimism and pessimism
    • Mindfulness and gratitude
    • Character and research methods
    • Applications and interventions
    • History and development

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Positive Psychology” should be selected during your submission.
