Dear Colleague:

Would you describe yourself as a researcher whose work:

  • Explores the past or present relationships between humans and their biological world?
  • Considers the sociocultural context in which these relationships play out?
  • Is inherently interdisciplinary?

If so, we invite you to consider the Journal of Ethnobiology as a publication venue. Our journal seeks high-quality manuscripts that draw on social science and biological science, meaning and materiality, experience and observation. We welcome insights into both past and present human-ecological interactions and multiple methods and data sources. Recent issues of the journal have covered such diverse topics as:

  • Homegardens in Mexico
  • Traditional forest management in California
  • Pastoralism in ancient Central Asia
  • People and seals in Siberia
  • Aesthetic perception and environmental policy in the western US
  • Archaeological evidence of breadfruit in the Society Islands

We consider individual manuscripts as well as proposals for special features or special issues on timely topics (traditional resource management and food security are recent examples).

Advantages of publication in Journal of Ethnobiology:

  • Rigorous peer review process
  • Included in Journal Citation Reports (56/83 in Biology; ranking in Anthropology forthcoming)
  • One article per issue selected for open access
  • No publication charges (membership in the Society is encouraged)
  • A transdisciplinary audience
