Journal of Ethology

ISSN: 0289-0771 (Print) 1439-5444 (Online)


The Journal of Ethology features reviews and original papers relating to all aspects of animal behavior, including traditional ethology. The journal presents papers on field, laboratory, and theoretical studies. In contrast to ethological journals that prefer studies testing explicit hypotheses, the Journal of Ethology publishes both in observational studies and in experimental studies.

The journal is published with the Japan Ethological Society, which was formed in 1982 with the objectives of advancing and disseminating knowledge of the principles and applications of ethology, and fostering the exchange of scientific information not only among Japanese but also worldwide ethologists.
