The Journal of Happiness Studies is a peer reviewed scientific journal devoted to subjective well-being. It covers both cognitive evaluations of life (like life-satisfaction), and affective enjoyment of life (such as mood level). Next to contributions on appraisal of life-as-a-whole, the journal accepts contributions on life domains (such as job-satisfaction) and life-aspects (such as perceived meaning of life).
