Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The health of men as workers, family members, consumers, travelers, and diners is important in today’s society. In particular, stress, burnout and depression in men are becoming increasingly critical issues around the world. These psychological problems are regarded as amongst the most serious threats to both the mental and physical health of males. Given this situation, it is of utmost importance in modern society to decrease the stress, burnout, and depression being experienced by men. Boosting the well-being and life satisfaction of men in their multiple roles as workers, family members, consumers, travelers and diners can enhance their life quality and fulfillment, thus eventually contributing to improved health. Diverse industrial sectors including conventional firms, leisure companies, hotels, restaurants, banks, airlines, cruises, healthcare and manufacturing companies are therefore actively dealing with the well-being and life satisfaction of males. Nonetheless, there is still a lack of research dealing with the well-being and health of men having multiple roles. Research that addresses this critical issue in men’s health is therefore invited for our special issue. The guest editors encourage a range of research approaches (e.g., quantitative, qualitative) that include but are not limited to surveys, big data analysis, experimental designs, case studies, text-mining, multi methods, and meta-analysis.
