AB - We present integral versions of some recently proved results which improve the Jensen-Steffensen and related inequalities for superquadratic functions. For superquadratic functions which are not convex we get inequalities analogous to the integral Jensen-Steffensen inequality for convex functions. Therefore, we get refinements of all the results which use only the convexity of these functions. One of the inequalities that we obtain for a superquadratic function φ is \[ \bar{y} \geqslant \phi \left( {\bar{x}} \right) + \frac{1}{{\lambda \left( \beta \right) - \lambda \left( \alpha \right)}}\int _\alpha ^\beta {\phi \left( {\left| {f\left( t \right) - \bar{x}} \right|} \right)d\lambda \left( t \right)} \]
, where \[ \bar{x} = \frac{1}{{\lambda \left( \beta \right) - \lambda \left( \alpha \right)}}\int _\alpha ^\beta {f\left( t \right)d\lambda \left( t \right)} \]
and \[ \bar{y} = \frac{1}{{\lambda \left( \beta \right) - \lambda \left( \alpha \right)}}\int _\alpha ^\beta {\phi \left( {f\left( t \right)} \right)d\lambda \left( t \right)} \]
which under suitable conditions like those satisfied by functions of power equal or more than 2, is a refinement of the Jensen-Steffensen-Boas inequality. We also prove related results of Mercer’s type.
