in digital games for health, and it will serve our research field and its related academic disciplines in many valuable ways," according to Debra Lieberman, PhD, Director of the Health Games Research national program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. "The Journal will be a starting point for anyone interested in the research and design of health games that integrate well-tested, evidence-based behavioral health strategies to help improve health behaviors and to support the delivery of care."

Forthcoming articles for early issues of Games for Health: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications include research on the effectiveness and design strategies of:

  • Games intended to develop the social skills of people with conditions such as autism
  • Exergames aimed at motivating more activity in physical education classes
  • An alternate realty game designed to increase physical activity
  • Exergames for young adults and families
  • Games to help treat eating disorders and habits such as smoking
  • Games to improve cognitive function in older adults
  • The use of simulations to help develop the interpersonal skills of family members of veterans suffering from PTSD

"The benefits of games for health from autism to Alzheimer's to heart disease and other illnesses and conditions are demonstrating significant promise for improving the way people manage their health and for the delivery of care both in and out of the hospital setting," said Mary Ann Liebert, president and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. "Games for Health: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications is a critical and much-needed forum for this evolving area of healthcare."

The new journal is under the editorial leadership of Bill Ferguson, PhD with expert input from a diverse editorial board which includes researchers: Debra Lieberman, PhD (University of California, Santa Barbara); Tom Baranowski, PhD (Baylor School of Medicine);
