Our Publications

ISEMPH is honored to sponsor two academic publications: an Oxford University Press Journal and an academic review blog.


  • Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health is an open access Oxford University Press journal that publishes original, rigorous applications of evolutionary thought to issues in medicine and public health. It aims to connect evolutionary biology with the health sciences to produce insights that may reduce suffering and save lives. 

  • The Evolution & Medicine Review (EMR) is a  scientific publication created by and for the community of scientists, scholars, clinicians and teachers working at the interface of evolution and medicine/public health.The EMR provides open access to carefully selected information from diverse sources, along with engaging commentary and opportunities for discussion.
