EvoS Journal

News 04/01/2024:

Greetings evo people! Big things are happening this season at our journal. We are currently in the process of publishing our annual special issue highlighting research from the 2023 meeting of the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society (NEEPS). More articles will be appearing in the coming weeks ahead of this year’s NEEPS conference in Niagara Falls.

Beginning this month, the official name of the journal going forward will be ‘EvoS Journal: Evolutionary Studies and Higher Education’. This new name keeps our focus on the teaching of evolution at colleges and universities while recognizing that we do not limit our scope to contributions from EvoS Consortium member institutions.

About the Journal

Started in 2009 with a grant from the NSF,  EvoS Journal: Evolutionary Studies and Higher Education publishes original works on the teaching of evolutionary theory in colleges and universities. An evolutionary education provides a framework for enhancing the research and theory in all disciplines, and as such, EvoS Journal welcomes work from all academic disciplines as well as interdisciplinary scholarship that incorporates evolutionary theory across areas of study. As an outlet for academic articles, EvoS Journal has two particular aims. The first is to publish peer-reviewed articles related to evolutionary theory in higher education. The second is to publish undergraduate peer-reviewed articles that have arisen from courses offered through Evolutionary Studies Programs. The journal also publishes articles based on research presented at the NorthEastern Evolutionary Psychology Society conference each year as a special issue.

Journal Name Change

As of April 1st, 2024, this journal has been renamed ‘EvoS Journal: Evolutionary Studies and Higher Education’.

Previously, the journal was known as ‘EvoS Journal: The Journal of the Evolutionary Studies Consortium.

Open-Access Policy

We are an open-access, free journal. This design allows easy access for anyone with an internet connection, and allows for fruitful academic exchange. EvoS Journal has been made possible by the Expanding Evolutionary Studies in American Higher Education grant from the National Science Foundation (#0817337). We are staffed entirely by volunteers, and we never charge our authors article processing charges (APCs).
