‎In this paper‎, ‎we established the Boyd-Wong type and Meir-Keeler type contractions in a new generalized b-metric space‎.
‎Two types of fixed point theorems are proven‎, ‎which extend the same results in the metric and b-metric spaces‎. ‎Some examples and an application are also discussed to show the applicability of the results‎.
