The journal is dedicated to a better understanding of primary prevention theory, practice, and research. Primary prevention involves preventing predictable and interrelated problems, protecting existing states of health and healthy functioning, and promoting psychosocial wellness for identified populations of people. The journal publishes along the spectrum of prevention research including research on determinants, intervention development, intervention evaluation, methodology, dissemination, policy-to-practice, and meta-analyses. JPP particularly welcomes manuscripts on behaviors that may be established during childhood and adolescence that can lead to the major causes of morbidity, mortality, and poor quality of life in adult years. Both qualitative and quantitative studies are welcome. Content areas include, but are not limited to, intentional and unintentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, physical activity, nutrition, mental health, and school functioning. The journal also focuses on the major causes of disparities, social determinants, school- and community-based programs, cross-cultural comparisons, community-based participatory research, and factors contributing to social injustice.

Specific types of papers published in the journal include original research, research methods and practice, brief reports, and literature reviews. The selection of articles for publication is based on their contribution to the field of prevention, clarity of presentation, adequacy of research methodology, and significance of research findings.
