The Journal of Ethnobiology (JoE) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Society of Ethnobiology. Founded in 1981, JoE is the oldest ethnobiological journal in the world to publish original interdisciplinary research on past and present inter-relations between humans and their biological worlds.

Sustained by a large global community of scholars in ethnobiology, JoE is committed to push the boundaries of knowledge through the publication of robust ethnobiological research with great societal impact and high policy relevance. As one of the world-leading scientific journals in ethnobiology, JoE has a particular interest in research that has the potential to increase the voice of ethnobiologists in global conversations about environmental change, planetary sustainability and Indigenous Peoples’ rights, among others.

Journal of Ethnobiology (JoE) is a broad-scope journal publishing work from across research areas looking at human-nature inter-relations, in all their complexities and magnificence. We are committed to publish high-quality research that looks at our planet through an ethnobiological lens, bringing into focus the multi-dimensional relationships among humans and their biological worlds both in the present and in the past.

International in scope, the journal is committed to publish collections of papers on socially and ecologically relevant topics, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, food security, environmental history and resource management. Publishing special issues and special sections is rooted in the journal’s DNA, in order to chart and evaluate the research foci of a fast developing interdisciplinary field. These issues allow for and encourage the explicit integration of ideas and scholars from diverse ethnobiological communities.

JoE is fully committed to facilitate global conversations and further the international scope of our discipline by publishing papers by scholars from around the world. Journal of Ethnobiology aspires to represent the vast and growing number of ethnobiological research that is taking place internationally.

JoE’s publishing model is hybrid, offering several open access options for authors.
