The editors of ASEBL Journal invite queries for the January 2014 issue. Deadline for articles is 1 September 2013 (early submissions are encouraged). Issues are housed on the St. Francis College (NY) website http://www.sfc.edu/page.cfm?p=3993. Before query or submission, please see the About tab at the blog www.asebl.blogspot.com for complete information. We urge potential contributors to pay particular attention to the lead article by Eric Luttrell in the January 2013 issue since it serves as a good model in terms of the mission and scope of the journal. ASEBL is an online journal, so issues appear as PDFs and in ISSUU format. Currently, the journal is published once a year, around January. The journal is peer-reviewed and indexed in Humanities Source, a major database of EBSCO Host.

If you are interested in submitting an article, contact the editor, Professor Gregory F. Tague only after you have reviewed the mission and guidelines: publisher@ebibliotekos.com. ASEBL can be Ethical Behavior or Evolutionary Biology. We are especially interested in writing that, broadly conceived, accommodates any treatment of the convergence among ethics, biology, and literature. That is, personal responsibility, moral identity, social emotions, human nature, consciousness, and conscience from an evolutionary perspective. All of this comes down to the crucible of the biology of morality, studied by primatologists, anthropologists, and evolutionary psychologists.

ASEBL is primarily interested in how moral (social) behavior is depicted in literary texts, how readers might respond to such depictions, and whether or not there is an evolutionary or adaptive function to the production of such moral representations.
