(Serious) Games for Health Journal: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications in a bimonthly peer-reviewed journal

(Serious) Games for Health Journal: Research, Development, and Clinical Applications is a bimonthly journal dedicated to the development, use, and applications of game technology for improving physical and mental health and well-being (please find also Health Games and Medical Games categories).
