The Society for Ethnobiology publishes three high-quality journals, each presenting peer-reviewed, original research on past or present relationships of human societies with their biological worlds.

The Journal of Ethnobiology, the flagship journal of the Society, has been publishing original research articles for over 30 years. The Journal particularly welcomes high-caliber papers presenting new approaches and data, and those that significantly advance theory in ethnobiology. The Journal is available free to members via BioOne, and through subscription as either digital or paper journal issues. For more information contact
