The Journal of Ethology features reviews and original papers relating to all aspects of animal behavior, including traditional ethology. The journal presents papers on field, laboratory, and theoretical studies. In contrast to ethological journals that prefer studies testing explicit hypotheses, the Journal of Ethology publishes both in observational studies and in experimental studies.

This is the official journal of the Japan Ethological Society, which was founded in 1982. This publication was supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number 18HP2005.
