Journal of Happiness Studies
The Journal of Happiness Studies is a new international scientific quarterly on subjective appreciation of life.

It welcomes contributions from different disciplines, in particular philosophy, social sciences and the life-sciences.
The journal is published by Kluwer Academic. Editors are: Ruut Veenhoven (sociologist, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands), Ed Diener (psychologist, University of Illinois, USA) and Alex Michalos (philosopher, University of Northern British Columbia Canada).
The first issue appeared in June 2000. The full text is free available on the publishers website:
