About Journal of Evolution and Health

The Journal of Evolution and Health is a peer-reviewed open-access journal jointly sponsored by the Ancestral Health Society and the Society for Evolutionary Medicine and Health. The Journal brings academic researchers from a broad range of disciplines together with clinical practitioners to cultivate an evolutionary perspective on health.  

The Journal’s editors and authors are motivated by a belief that evolution has much to teach us about healthful living and effective healing. The mission of the Journal of Evolution and Health is to explore how evolution has shaped and constrained human and animal biology, to develop insights into the major factors affecting health, and to translate those insights into practical methods for improving human and animal health.  

Recognizing that knowledge relevant to its mission is dispersed across many academic and clinical disciplines, the Journal of Evolution and Health is an interdisciplinary publication that seeks contributions from a broad range of sources and seeks to promote communication among scholars and clinicians.
