Call for papers: Board Game on Health Education and Promotion
BioPsychoSocial Medicine is planning to publish a special issue featuring the effect of board games on health promotion and education.
A PubMed search performed in August, 2018, using “board game” as key words, identified 177 articles. Given the increasing reliance on information and communication technology (ICT) and on artificial intelligence (AI), we expect that the use of board games for maintaining and promoting mental and physical health will become more widespread.
This special series will be devoted to research and review articles on the effects of board games on health education and promotion” for the purpose of advancing psychosomatic medicine. All interested researchers are invited to contribute to this special issue.
Deadline of the papers for publication in this special issue is 31 March 2019. All submissions will be thoroughly peer-reviewed. Please refer to the Submission Guidelines section for detailed information on preparation of manuscripts.
