Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences

              (The official journal of NEEPS; Formerly the Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology)


In 2014, the American Psychological Association began publishing the journal Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences, formerly the Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology (started in 2007). The quarterly journal promotes science that advances the study of human behavior from an evolutionary perspective, with an emphasis on work that integrates evolutionary theory with other approaches and perspectives from across the behavioral sciences. Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences is the official journal of the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS). The journal supports the society’s mission by publishing articles that explore the role of evolved mechanisms in real-world phenomena, the consequences of evolved behavior for the patterns and structure of society, and the interplay between evolved psychological mechanisms and cultural influences in driving behavior. The Editor of Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences is Dan O’Brien, PhD, Research Director of the Boston Area Research Initiative and Lecturer at Harvard University. He is joined by Associate Editors Aurelio José Figueredo, PhD of University of Arizona, Andrew Gallup, PhD of SUNY College at Oneonta, Peter Jonason, PhD of University of Western Sydney, Satoshi Kanazawa, PhD of London School of Economics and Political Science, Catherine Salmon, PhD of Redlands University, and Book Review Editor Pedro Wolf, PhD of University of Cape Town. Articles published in Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences are available through PsycARTICLES®, the most used full-text database in psychology and one of the most popular databases in all scholarly disciplines and fields. PsycARTICLES is available to a global audience of nearly 3,300 institutions and 60 million potential users.
