Journal of Evolutionary Biology

The Journ­al of Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy (JEB) is a peer-reviewed, inter­na­tion­al journ­al estab­lished in 1987 and owned by the European Soci­ety for Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy. We con­sider sub­mis­sions describ­ing research from across the field of evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy, such as molecu­lar evol­u­tion, evol­u­tion­ary genet­ics and gen­om­ics, life his­tor­ies, evol­u­tion­ary eco­logy, devel­op­ment or mor­pho­logy. We cov­er both micro- and macro-evol­u­tion, as well as empir­ic­al, com­pu­ta­tion­al and the­or­et­ic­al work. We pri­or­it­ise art­icles that make sig­ni­fic­ant advances from a broad con­cep­tu­al and taxo­nom­ic per­spect­ive. The Edit­or­i­al Board reflects the mul­tidiscip­lin­ary role of the journ­al and its inter­na­tion­al focus. For fur­ther inform­a­tion on the scope of the JEB, have a look at the JEB edit­or­i­als and for the latest news from the journ­al check out the JEB blog.

Mem­ber­ship of the European Soci­ety for Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy includes on-line sub­scrip­tion to the journ­al (to become a mem­ber vis­it our mem­ber­ship page).

We pub­lish JEB in asso­ci­ation with Wiley, and you can find fur­ther inform­a­tion about the journ­al here includ­ing inform­a­tion about sub­scrip­tions and how to sub­mit an art­icle. Fol­low @JEvBio on twit­ter to hear about the latest pub­lished art­icles and Spe­cial Issues. You can also sign up for free con­tent alerts via email at Wiley Online Lib­rary.

Manu­scripts can be sub­mit­ted online at We are cur­rently a hybrid journ­al offer­ing both sub­scrip­tion-based and Open Access pub­lic­a­tion. ESEB mem­bers receive a 30% dis­count on Open Access publishing.
