Aims & Scope

In business since 2009, and started with a grant from the NSF, EvoS Journal: The Journal of the Evolutionary Studies Consortium is a journal designed to promote the education 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.

Open-Access Policy

EvoS Journal is 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).
