APA to Publish JSEC Under New Title, Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences
As of the January 2014 issue, the Journal of Social, Evolutionary, and Cultural Psychology will be published by the American Psychological Association under the new title, Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences. EBS will continue to be the official journal of the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS), and will maintain its current mission of promoting 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. A full press release is available here.
As part of the transition, there is a new EBS website, where visitors can learn more about the journal, and contributors can soon submit manuscripts via an online portal.
