The focus of this special issue is on using e- & mHealth tools (e.g., websites, apps, chat bots, conversational agents, JITAIs, artificial intelligence, trackers, social media) to measure, examine or change health behaviours (e.g., physical activity, sedentary behaviour, sleep, diet, mental health, weight, smoking). I’m particularly interested in innovative approaches to using e- & mHealth tools to (e.g., applying artificial intelligence) change health behaviours, even if the work is in early stages (i.e., pilot studies), as such, all study designs are welcome. Though note that research replicating previous work will need to be of higher methodological quality than research exploring new frontiers. Please feel free to contact me and ask whether your proposed study is within the scope of the special issue.
