Culture and Evolution

Culture and Evolution is an Open Access journal that publishes manuscripts from across the cultural and evolutionary sciences. Our aim is to bring all scientific tools for studying culture and evolution to the same table. The journal seeks papers from the fields of cross-cultural psychology, cultural evolution, cultural phylogenetics, dual-inheritance theory, evolutionary anthropology, evolutionary medicine, evolutionary psychology, evolutionary sociology, human behavioural ecology, human ethology, and international public health. We welcome registered reports and replication studies. Publication fees will be waived for papers submitted by December 31, 2022.
