COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Update on indexing

Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnobiology is now included in the JCR categories of Biodiversity Conservation and Plant Sciences.

Editor's quote

Professor Andrea Pieroni, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine

"Ethnobiology and ethnomedicine are exciting and revolutionary multidisciplinary fields at the center of many current debates on culturally appropriate management of the biodiversity and the human and animal health.

The Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine is a very timely initiative to foster a common platform devoted to scientists, practitioners, environmentalists, and policy makers for investigating cultural perceptions and cognition of the natural world and of disease and illness, as well as their meaning for comprehensive environmental and public health policies."
