November 13, 2020

Akadémiai Kiadó happily announces revolutionary changes in the publication of EMB.

We warmly welcome Prof David P. Schmitt from Brunel University London, as the new Editor-in-Chief since the 1st of October 2020.

David P. Schmitt is a Professor in the Department of Life Sciences at Brunel University London. He also serves as Director of the Centre for Culture and Evolution within Brunel’s College of Health, Medicine, and Life Sciences. He received his Ph.D. in personality psychology from the University of Michigan in 1995. He is Founding Director of the International Sexuality Description Project, an interdisciplinary research collaboration involving 100s of psychologists, biologists, and anthropologists from around the world who seek to understand how culture, gender, and personality combine to influence human mating behaviour. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 articles on human sexual diversity, often from both evolutionary and cross-cultural perspectives. His work has been cited over 18,000 times, and he has served on the Editorial Boards of Evolutionary Psychology, Evolutionary Behavioural Sciences, Evolutionary Psychological Science, Archives of Sexual Behaviour, Interpersona, and Sexualities, Evolution & Gender: An International Journal of Feminist and Evolutionary Standpoints.

Under David’s direction, the journal will remain a Gold Open Access publication, but it will cover more interdisciplinary subjects. The extended scope is also expressed by the new title Culture and Evolution. We seek 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. Author instructions are available in PDF format and manuscripts can be uploaded on the journal’s submission web site.
