Abstract
On behalf of the Editorial Board and the editorial management staff of MDPI, it is my great pleasure to introduce this new journal Behavioral Sciences. Behavioral Sciences seeks to publish original research and scholarship contributing to our understanding of human behavior. The journal will provide a forum for work that furthers knowledge and stimulates research in the behavioral sciences. We are committed to building a diverse and methodologically rigorous literature of interest and benefit to behavioral and social scientists, as well as to clinical practitioners, educationalists, and the general public.

Psychosocial stress has been identified as a potential risk factor for preterm birth. However, an association has not been found consistently, and a consensus on the extent to which stress and preterm birth are linked is still lacking. A literature search was performed with a combination of keywords and MeSH terms to detect studies of psychosocial stress and preterm birth. Studies were included in...

At issue in the present study was an attempt to refine the fear-avoidance hypothesis by eliciting estimates of anticipated pain as well as anticipated injury. Along with scores on the Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire-Work (FABQ-W), ...

The second aim of the paper was to test the robustness of the factor analytic model when depression scores were controlled for. Design Based on previous factor analytic findings and the DSM-IV formulation, six confirmatory factor models w...

The assessment of anxiety in the elderly is an area that has just begun to receive attention from researchers and clinicians. As such, there are many questions that are unanswered at present. This overview is intended to facilitate continued work in this area, as well as to highlight issues where clinical science could benefit from more systematic information.

Despite the high incidence of delirium in patients who undergo hemapoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), delirium as a risk factor for death has not been examined in this population. Thirty adult patients undergoing HSCT who were admitted to the University of Iowa Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program i...

Abstract Maladaptive forms of self-focus, such as rumination, are considered transdiagnostic factors that contribute to depressive and anxiety symptoms. However, no or few studies have explored the possibility that adaptive forms of self-focus can also be a common factor that is negatively associated with depressive and anxiety symptoms. To test this possibility, we first examined the psychometric...
