Outlets for work in evolutionary psychologyPublished 17 September, 2010
I was thinking recently about the expansion of outlets in which people publish work in evolutionary psychology. It wasn’t that long ago that the then-titled Ethology and Sociobiology, was first and practically only place to go. Now, in addition to the fact that lots of journals publish work by evolutionary psychologists, there are a bunch of journals that are more or less specialized in publishing work in the field.
So, I thought I’d make a little list of outlets for evolutionary psychology work. (I’m sure I’m omitting some. Apologies in advance. EHBEA lists journals at the bottom of this page. I reserve the right to update this post if people call my attention to journals I have left out.) My criterion here is roughly journals that publish work about humans that is informed by an evolutionary perspective.
Anyway, most of these are young, some of them very young. Does this imply that the field is growing? Or is this part of a larger trend towards more journals in general?
