“The formation of this new journal is a tribute to the talent and initiative of our students. It will be a privilege to get to read and assess the work of undergraduate students during their studies, and it is fantastic that this journal now offers the opportunity for students to share their thinking, ideas, and research with the wider world. At Cambridge we encourage students to cross disciplinary borders in their learning, and it is pleasing to see students taking that one step further in establishing this cross-disciplinary journal for the study of Human Behaviour.”

Interdisciplinary | Peer-Reviewed

The Cambridge Journal of Human Behaviour (CJHB) is an interdisciplinary, quarterly journal that enjoys undergraduate submissions from various anthropological, psychological, and biological approaches to human behaviour.

CJHB hopes to provide a platform and opportunity for cross-fertilisation and interdisciplinarity in which the varying methodological frontiers of disciplines may converge, overlap, bisect, or even jar.

Our focus is human behaviour, however that may be taken and engaged with.

Our aim is to traverse the “two cultures” that are often imagined as having a “gulf of immutable comprehension” (Snow, 1965) between them; i.e., that of the social and natural sciences. Whilst we have decidedly delineated and recommended multiple disciplines to ground and analyse human behaviour, these heuristic distinctions—rather than empirical ones—should come to be understood as “utterly intertwined” (Sapolsky, 2018).
