Ethnobiology Letters: New Online, Open-access, Peer Reviewed Journal for Short Papers

The Society of Ethnobiology introduces a new online, open-access, peer reviewed journal for short papers (http://ethnobiology.org/ethnobiology-letters) called Ethnobiology Letters (EBL).  The Society now publishes a full complement of journals headlined by the Journal of Ethnobiology and complemented by Contributions in Ethnobiology for monograph length publications and EBL for short papers.

Announcing the SoE Undergraduate Student Award

The Society of Ethnobiology is looking for a keen undergraduate ethnobiologist to sit on our Board as an appointed "student advisor". The student should come with ideas and energy to increase undergraduate student involvement in our Society.

This is a one-year position that comes with a one-year membership in the Society, a waiver for our Society of Ethnobiology annual meeting registration, accommodation for 3 nights during the conference, and $250 USD to put towards travel. More details »

Reviewers Solicited for Journal of Ethnobiology

The Journal of Ethnobiology is seeking to expand its pool of volunteers who review manuscripts submitted to the Journal’s editors for publication.  The Journal receives manuscripts in paleoethnobotany, zooarchaeology, ethnobotany, ethnozoology, ethnoecology, linguistic ethnobiology, and other related areas of anthropology and biology.

Announcing our book-length on-line publication series, "Contributions in Ethnobiology"

Contributions in Ethnobiology is a peer-reviewed monograph series published electronically by the Society of Ethnobiology. The series is a forum for publishing original book-length research on past or present relationships of human societies with their biological worlds. Contributions are data-rich, state-of-the-art studies, which may be either single-authored or edited volumes with multiple authors. On-line publication allows freedom from traditional publishing restraints on specialist topics, unusual length, and number of figures.
