The Journal of Black Sexuality and Relationships is a refereed, interdisciplinary, scholarly inquiry devoted to addressing the epistemological, ontological, and social construction of sexual expression and relationships of persons within the African diaspora. This quarterly journal will be used as a medium to capture the functionality and dysfunctionality of individuals, couples, and families as well as the efficacy in which relationships are negotiated. This journal seeks to take into account the transhistorical substrates that subsume behavioral, affective, and cognitive functioning of persons of African descent as well as those who educate or clinically serve this important population. Quantitative, qualitative, conceptual, book reviews, and letters to the editor submissions may address various cultural substrates (e.g., age, race, gender, sexual orientation/identities, ability, spirituality, etc.) that intersect or weave themselves in/out of sexual expression, romantic relationships, and/or friendships.

Target Audience
Scholars, clinicians, and educators who are interested in the continuum of the sexual expression of persons within the African diaspora. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the JBSR audience includes educators and practitioners who represent the fields of psychology, sociology, education, psychiatry, human development, social work, social policy, anthropology, etc.)
