The Journal of Creative Behavior (JCB) is the original and longest-standing journal devoted specifically to creativity research. JCB is a quarterly publication founded and published by the Creative Education Foundation in 1967. JCB is known throughout the world for its quality and uniqueness. Not only do the contents focus on creativity, but the covers, themselves, exemplify the creative process.

JCB is a primary outlet for the highest quality and most innovative work on creativity. We published papers reporting on original research, theory, and applications of creativity in diverse settings and contexts. All approaches are welcome. We invite authors to send us their very best work and we look forward to sharing it with our worldwide readership.
