Special issue of Early Human Development

Got evolutionary thoughts on development? John Manning & Bernhard Fink are editing a special issue of Early Human Development [IF 2.5] entitled “Biological and Psychological Perspectives on Early Human Development”. Submissions are due April 15th 2024.

This Special Issue invites contributions on topics of early human development from a biological and/or psychological perspective that advance the understanding of human behaviour, health, and socioeconomic outcomes. It aims to integrate traditional approaches and develop new synergies between biology, medicine, and psychology with a focus on early developmental effects such as hormone action, developmental instability and the role of genetics/epigenetics (including twin research) in social inquiry. An adaptationist perspective is welcome but not mandatory. The Special Issue plans to publish ~10-15 articles, which are typically Original Research Papers reporting new data. Review articles and Commentaries may be solicited by the Editors.
