    1. Open Access

    Evolutionary Psychology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal. Each article accepted by peer review
    is made freely available online immediately upon publication, is published under a Creative Commons
    license and will be hosted online in perpetuity. Publication costs of the journal are covered by the
    collection of article processing charges which are paid by the funder, institution or author of each
    manuscript upon acceptance. There is no charge for submitting a paper to the journal.

    For general information on open access at SAGE please visit the Open Access page or view our Open

    3. What do we publish?

    3.1 Aims & scope

    Before submitting your manuscript to Evolutionary Psychology, please ensure you have read the
    Aims & Scope.

    3.2 Article types

    Evolutionary Psychology accepts Original Research Articles.

    3.3 Writing your paper

    The SAGE Author Gateway has some general advice and on how to get published, plus links to
    further resources

    3.3.1 Making your article discoverable

    4. Editorial policies

    4.1 Peer review policy

    Following a preliminary triage to eliminate submissions unsuitable for Evolutionary Psychology
    all papers are sent out for review. The covering letter is important. To help the Editor in his
    preliminary evaluation, please indicate why you think the paper suitable for publication. If your
    paper should be considered for fast-track publication, please explain why.

    The journal’s policy is to have manuscripts reviewed by two expert reviewers. Evolutionary
    Psychology utilizes a double-blind peer review process in which the reviewer and authors’
    names and information are withheld from the other. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as
    possible, while maintaining rigor. Reviewers make comments to the author and
    recommendations to the Editor who then makes the final decision.

    The Editor or members of the Editorial Board may occasionally submit their own manuscripts for
    possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by
    alternative members of the Board and the submitting Editor / Board member will have no
    involvement in the decision-making process.

    Evolutionary Psychology is committed to delivering high quality, fast peer-review for your paper,
    and as such has partnered with Publons. Publons is a third party service that seeks to track,
    verify and give credit for peer review. Reviewers for Evolutionary Psychology can opt in to
    Publons in order to claim their reviews or have them automatically verified and added to their
    reviewer profile. Reviewers claiming credit for their review will be associated with the relevant
    journal, but the article name, reviewer’s decision and the content of their review is not
    published on the site. For more information visit the Publons website.

    4.2 Authorship

    Papers should only be submitted for consideration once consent is given by all contributing
    authors. Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work contributed
    to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors. 
    The list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship. This is all
    those who:

    (i) Made a substantial contribution to the concept or design of the work; or acquisition,
    analysis or interpretation of data,
    (ii) Drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content,
    (iii) Approved the version to be published,
    (iv) Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public
    responsibility for appropriate portions of the content.

    Authors should meet the conditions of all of the points above. Each author should have
    participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the
    content.
    When a large, multicentre group has conducted the work, the group should identify the
    individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript. These individuals should fully
    meet the criteria for authorship.
    Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group alone
    does not constitute authorship, although all contributors who do not meet the criteria for
    authorship should be listed in the Acknowledgments section. Please refer to the International
    Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE)
    authorship guidelines for more information on
    authorship.

    4.3 Acknowledgements

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an
    Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person
    who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support. 

    4.3.1 Writing assistance

    Individuals who provided writing assistance, e.g. from a specialist communications company, do
    not qualify as authors and so should be included in the Acknowledgements section. Authors
    must disclose any writing assistance – including the individual’s name, company and level of
    input – and identify the entity that paid for this assistance.
    It is not necessary to disclose use of language polishing services.
    Please supply any personal acknowledgements separately to the main text to facilitate
    anonymous peer review.

    4.4 Funding

    Evolutionary Psychology requires all authors to acknowledge their funding in a consistent
    fashion under a separate heading. Please visit the Funding Acknowledgements page on the
    SAGE Journal Author Gateway to confirm the format of the acknowledgment text in the event of
    funding, or state that: This research received no specific grant from any funding agency in the
    public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

    4.5 Declaration of conflicting interests

    It is the policy of Evolutionary Psychology to require a declaration of conflicting interests from all
    authors enabling a statement to be carried within the paginated pages of all published articles.

    Please ensure that a ‘Declaration of Conflicting Interests’ statement is included at the end of
    your manuscript, after any acknowledgements and prior to the references. If no conflict exists,
    please state that ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest’.

    For guidance on conflict of interest statements, please see the ICMJE recommendations.

    4.6 Research ethics and patient consent

    Medical research involving human subjects must be conducted according to the World Medical
    Association Declaration of Helsinki
    .

    Submitted manuscripts should conform to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Conduct,
    Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals
    , and all papers
    reporting animal and/or human studies must state in the methods section that the relevant
    Ethics Committee or Institutional Review Board provided (or waived) approval. Please ensure
    that you have provided the full name and institution of the review committee, in addition to the
    approval number.

    For research articles, authors are also required to state in the methods section whether
    participants provided informed consent and whether the consent was written or verbal.

    Information on informed consent to report individual cases or case series should be included in
    the manuscript text. A statement is required regarding whether written informed consent for
    patient information and images to be published was provided by the patient(s) or a legally
    authorized representative.

    Please also refer to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Protection of Research Participants.

    All research involving animals submitted for publication must be approved by an ethics
    committee with oversight of the facility in which the studies were conducted. The journal has
    adopted the Consensus Author Guidelines on Animal Ethics and Welfare for Veterinary Journals
    published by the International Association of Veterinary Editors.

    4.7 Clinical trials

    Evolutionary Psychology conforms to the ICMJE requirement that clinical trials are registered in
    a WHO-approved public trials registry at or before the time of first patient enrolment as a
    condition of consideration for publication. The trial registry name and URL, and registration
    number must be included at the end of the abstract.

    4.8 Reporting guidelines

    Where statistical analyses have been conducted, please ensure that the methodology has been
    accurately described. In comparative studies, power calculations are usually required. In
    research papers requiring complex statistics, the advice of an expert statistician should be
    sought at the design/implementation stage of the study.

    5. Publishing policies

    5.1 Publication ethics

    SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to
    refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the
    Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway.

    5.1.1 Plagiarism

    Evolutionary Psychology and SAGE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other
    breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We seek to protect the rights of our
    authors and we always investigate claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally,
    we seek to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be
    checked with duplication-checking software. Where an article, for example, is found to have
    plagiarized other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with
    insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve
    the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum
    (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of
    the author's institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal
    action.

    5.1.2 Prior publication

    If material has been previously published, it is not generally acceptable for publication in a SAGE
    journal. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be
    considered for publication. Please refer to the guidance on the SAGE Author Gateway or if in
    doubt, contact the Editor at the address given below.

    5.2 Contributor's publishing agreement

    Before publication SAGE requires the author as the rights holder to sign a Journal Contributor’s
    Publishing Agreement. Evolutionary Psychology publishes manuscripts under Creative
    Commons licenses
    . The standard license for the journal is Creative Commons by Attribution
    Non-Commercial (CC BY-NC), which allows others to re-use the work without permission as long
    as the work is properly referenced and the use is non-commercial. For more information, you
    are advised to visit SAGE's OA licenses page.

    Alternative license arrangements are available, for example, to meet particular funder
    mandates, made at the author’s request.

    delay in publication.

    6.3 Supplementary material

    This journal is able to host additional materials online (e.g. datasets, podcasts, videos, images
    etc) alongside the full-text of the article. These will be subjected to peer-review alongside the
    article. For more information please refer to our guidelines on submitting supplementary files,
    which can be found within our Manuscript Submission Guidelines page. 

    6.4 Reference style

    Evolutionary Psychology adheres to the APA reference style. Please review the guidelines on

    8. On acceptance and publication

    If your paper is accepted for publication after peer review, you will first be asked to complete the
    contributor’s publishing agreement. Once your manuscript files have been checked for SAGE Production,
    the corresponding author will be asked to pay the article processing charge (APC) via a payment link.
    Once the APC has been processed, your article will be prepared for publication and can appear online
    within an average of 30 days. Please note that no production work will occur on your paper until the
    APC has been received.

    8.1 SAGE Production

    Your SAGE Production Editor will keep you informed as to your article’s progress throughout the
    production process. Proofs will be sent by PDF to the corresponding author and should be
    returned promptly. Authors are reminded to check their proofs carefully to confirm that all
    author information, including names, affiliations, sequence and contact details are correct, and
    that Funding and Conflict of Interest statements, if any, are accurate. Please note that if there
    are any changes to the author list at this stage all authors will be required to complete and sign
    a form authorizing the change.
