More about the Journal of Creative Behavior

The Journal of Creative Behavior (JCB) is a quarterly publication by the Creative Education Foundation, published by Wiley-Blackwell. It is devoted to the serious general reader with vocational/avocational interest in the fields of creativity and problem solving. Its articles are authored not only by established writers in the field, but by up-and-coming contributors, as well. The criteria for selecting articles include relevance, clarity, interest and overall creativity.

JCB is known throughout the world for its uniqueness. Interdisciplinary in flavor and often controversial, the articles deal with methods to foster creative productivity, giftedness, management of creative personnel, testing, creativity in business and industry, development of creative curricula, creativity in the arts and sciences, and reviews of literature on creativity and problem solving. Not only do the contents focus on creativity, but the covers also exemplify the creative process. After self-publishing 45 volumes since 1967, the Journal of Creative Behavior moved to Wiley-Blackwell, the market leader for academic journals.
