Evolutionary Biology

JOURNAL OF HEREDITY

Journal of Heredity authors have the option, at an additional charge, to make their paper freely available online immediately upon publication, under the Oxford Open initiative. After the manuscript is accepted, as part of the mandatory copyright form required of all corresponding authors, authors will be asked to indicate whether or not they wish to pay to have the paper made freely available immediately.

JOURNAL OF EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY

The Journal of Evolutionary Biology is a bimonthly, peer-reviewed, international journal. We prioritise papers that address the evolutionary process, from a broad perspective. We cover both micro- and macro-evolution of all types of organisms. The aim of the Journal is to integrate perspectives across molecular and microbial evolution, behaviour, genetics, ecology, life histories, development, palaeontology, systematics and morphology. To fulfil its integrative role, the Journal gives preference to papers that bring together two or more fields.

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY

The American Journal of Physical Anthropology (AJPA) is the official journal of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists. The Journal is published monthly in three quarterly volumes. In addition, two supplements appear on an annual basis, the Yearbook of Physical Anthropology, which publishes major review articles, and the Annual Meeting Issue, containing the Scientific Program of the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists and abstracts of posters and podium presentations.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND EVOLUTION

Evolution is the most fundamental of biological processes, essential for life in a changing world. MBE publishes fresh insights into the patterns and processes that impact the evolution of life at molecular levels, across a full breadth of taxonomy, genomic organization, and functions, forms, and phenotypes. MBE's Methods, Resource, and Protocol sections provide our community with cutting edge evolutionary research tools that enable discovery, while our Reviews and Perspectives present syntheses to inspire new directions in evolutionary thought.

GENOME BIOLOGY AND EVOLUTION

Genome Biology and Evolution (GBE) publishes leading original research at the interface between evolutionary biology and genomics. Papers considered for publication report novel evolutionary findings that concern natural genome diversity, population genomics, the structure, function, organisation and expression of genomes, comparative genomics, proteomics, and environmental genomic interactions.

EVOLUTION MEDICINE AND PUBLIC HEALTH

Founded by Stephen Stearns in 2013, Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health is an open access journal that publishes original, rigorous applications of evolutionary science to issues in medicine and public health. It aims to connect evolutionary biology with the health sciences to produce insights that may reduce suffering and save lives. Because evolutionary biology is a basic science that reaches across many disciplines, this journal is open to contributions on a broad range of topics.

JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION

The Journal of Human Evolution concentrates on publishing the highest quality papers covering all aspects of human evolution. The central focus is aimed jointly at paleoanthropological work, covering human and primate fossils, and at comparative studies of living species, including both morphological and molecular evidence. These include descriptions of new discoveries, interpretative analyses of new and previously described material, and assessments of the phylogeny and paleobiology of primate species.

AMERICAN NATURALIST

Since its inception in 1867, The American Naturalist has maintained its position as one of the world’s premier peer-reviewed publications in ecology, evolution, and behavior research. Its goals are to publish articles that are of broad interest to the readership, pose new and significant problems, introduce novel subjects, develop conceptual unification, and change the way people think. The American Naturalist emphasizes sophisticated methodologies and innovative theoretical syntheses — all in an effort to advance the knowledge of organic evolution and other broad biological principles.
