Information for Authors

Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health is an open access journal that publishes original, rigorous applications of evolutionary thought to issues in medicine and public health. It aims to connect evolutionary biology with the health sciences to produce insights that may reduce suffering and save lives. Because evolutionary biology is a basic science that reaches across many disciplines, this journal is open to contributions on a broad range of topics, including relevant work on non-model organisms and insights that arise from both research and practice.

All material to be considered for publication in Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health should be submitted in electronic form via the journal's online submission system. Full instructions for manuscript preparation and submission can be found in the sections below. If you are unable to submit your manuscript via the online submission system, please contact the Editorial Office.
