Our soci­ety journal

JEB — a society journal

The Journ­al of Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy (JEB) is first and fore­most a soci­ety journ­al that exists to show­case the research of the com­munity that it rep­res­ents. JEB is owned by the European Soci­ety of Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy and was estab­lished in 1987 as an inter­na­tion­al peer-reviewed journ­al. We cur­rently pub­lish under a hybrid open-access mod­el and chan­nel our profits back into the evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy com­munity through vari­ous ESEB ini­ti­at­ives. These include grants for net­work­ing and work­shop meet­ings, awards to early career sci­ent­ists, the spon­sor­ship of lab/field vis­its, equal oppor­tun­it­ies and out­reach ini­ti­at­ive grands and travel/congress attend­ance aid. Funds also sub­sid­ise the cost of the bien­ni­al con­gress of the soci­ety which reg­u­larly attracts c.1500 research­ers, from all corners of the world and the field of evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy, fos­ter­ing net­work­ing and lifelong collaborations.

Research pub­lished in the journ­al cov­ers both micro- and macro-evol­u­tion of all types of organ­isms. We look to integ­rate per­spect­ives across molecu­lar and micro­bi­al evol­u­tion, beha­viour, genet­ics, gen­om­ics, eco­logy, life his­tor­ies, devel­op­ment, evo-devo, palae­on­to­logy, sys­tem­at­ics and mor­pho­logy. To ful­fil its integ­rat­ive role, the journ­al gives pref­er­ence to papers that bring togeth­er two or more fields. 

We aim to bring to the fore cur­rent top­ics in evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy as defined by our research com­munity. ESEB sup­ports Pro­gress Meet­ings in Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy; con­fer­ences and work­shops ded­ic­ated to an area where rap­id pro­gress is being made in our under­stand­ing of evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy. Research­ers attend­ing these meet­ings have the oppor­tun­ity to con­trib­ute to a Spe­cial Issue or Tar­get Review for JEB. Our latest Tar­get Review was born out of the 2018 Pro­gress Meet­ing: Res­ist­ance to Gene Drives: responses to nat­ur­al and syn­thet­ic sys­tems.
