Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences publishes invited short annotated reviews by leading experts on recent developments in the behavioral sciences.

The journal is part of the Current Opinion and Research (CO+RE) suite of journals and is a companion to the primary research, open access journal, Current Research in Behavioral Sciences. CO+RE journals leverage the Current Opinion legacy of editorial excellence, high-impact, and global reach to ensure they are a widely-read resource that is integral to scientists' workflows.

Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences takes a unique and valuable approach in designating each special issue around a topic of scientific and/or societal interest, and then bringing together leading international experts studying that topic, but from diverse methodologies and perspectives, e.g.,

  • human and animal laboratory testing
  • survey and observational research
  • behavioral and neuroscientific research with both healthy adults and special populations
  • computational and genetic approaches

These experts write short reviews of recent (2-5 years) developments in the topic, as well as pointing out select individual papers of particular significance.

The journal is thus an important resource allowing researchers and educators to quickly gain an overview and rich understanding of complex and current issues in the behavioral sciences.

Journal Content
The journal consists of 6 issues per year. Four issues cover topics in the following recurring categories:

  • Cognition and Perception
  • Emotion, Motivation, Personality and Social Sciences
  • Evolution, Development and Genetics
  • Methodological, Computational and Translational Advances
