Instructions for Authors

Scope

Behaviour (BEH) is interested in all aspects of animal (including human) behaviour, from ecology and physiology to learning, cognition, and neuroscience. Evolutionary approaches, which concern themselves with the advantages of behaviour or capacities for the organism and its reproduction, receive much attention both at a theoretical level and as it relates to specific behaviour. The journal Behaviour has its roots in ethology and behavioural biology (see historical note), in which the emphasis is not so much on how animals compare with humans under strictly controlled conditions (as in comparative psychology), but more on tracing the phylogeny and evolution of natural behaviour as shown under naturalistic or natural conditions. Specialized cognition and communication are part of this approach.

Well-controlled laboratory experiments are needed and welcome, but by no means the only approach. Behaviour has a long tradition of publishing systematic observations of spontaneous behaviour. Behaviour covers the whole animal kingdom, from invertebrates to fish, and from frogs to primates. The study of animal behaviour remains vibrant and keeps attracting young, talented scientists, who will find Behaviour a journal with a quick turn-around time (we strive for first reviews within a month) read by a wide range of students and researchers of animal behaviour.

Historical Note

Behaviour was founded by Nobel Prize winner Niko Tinbergen together with W. H. Thorpe, in 1948. In a classical 1963 paper ― dedicated to the 60th birthday of that other animal behaviour Nobelist, Konrad Lorenz ―Tinbergen proposed that questions relating to why an animal behaves in a particular way can be viewed through four prisms. At the proximate level, we have 1) the causation of behaviour (its underlying motivation, cognition, and emotions), and 2) the behaviour’s ontogeny, such as how it develops or is acquired. At the ultimate level, we have 3) the behaviour’s survival value, and 4) its evolution and phylogeny. Behaviour seeks to cover all four prisms equally.

Ethical and Legal Conditions

The publication of a manuscript in a peer-reviewed work is expected to follow standards of ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: authors, editors, and reviewers. Authors, editors, and reviewers should thoroughly acquaint themselves with Brill’s publication ethics, which may be downloaded here: brill.com/page/ethics/publication-ethics-cope-compliance.

Online Submission

Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their manuscript online via the Editorial Manager (EM) online submission system at editorialmanager.com/beh.

First-time users of EM need to register first. Go to the website and click on the "Register Now" link in the login menu. Enter the information requested. During registration, you can fill in your username and password. If you should forget your Username and Password, click on the "send login details" link in the login section, and enter your e-mail address exactly as you entered it when you registered. Your access codes will then be e-mailed to you.

Prior to submission, authors are encouraged to read the ‘Instructions for Authors’. When submitting via the website, you will be guided through the creation and uploading of the various files.

A revised document is uploaded the same way as the initial submission. The system automatically generates an electronic (PDF) proof, which is then used for reviewing purposes. All correspondence, including the editor’s request for revision and final decision, is sent by e-mail.

Authors may also provide the names and email address of suitable or unsuitable reviewers.

Choosing Editors in EM

The last stage of submitting your manuscript is selecting one of the Editors to handle your manuscript. Authors based at institutions in Europe, Asia or Africa should select Managing Editor Paul Albers. Authors based at institutions in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand or the Pacific should select Managing Editor Brian Wisenden.

File Formats

Various formats are allowed for the initial submission, including PDF files.

All text and tables of the final revision must be as a source file in Word or another suitable word processor document.

Supplementary Media / Data Files

To support and enhance your manuscript, Behaviour accepts electronic supplementary material, including supporting applications, high-resolution images, background datasets, sound or video clips, large appendices, data tables and other items that cannot be included in the article PDF itself. Authors should submit the material in electronic format together with the other manuscript files and supply a concise and descriptive caption for each file. In order to ensure that your submitted material is directly usable, please provide the data in one of the broadly accepted file formats for video, audio, etc. and limit the file size (e.g., for video: max. 3 GB). Supplementary files supplied will be published online at FigShare (www.figshare.com), to which reference is made in the published article on Brill Online Books and Journals, and vice versa.

Contact Address

For any questions or problems relating to your manuscript please contact either Paul Albers at: stm@brill.com, or Brian Wisenden at: wisenden@gmail.com. For questions about Editorial Manager, authors can also contact the Brill EM Support Department at: em@brill.com.

When submitting a manuscript, please note:

The editorial board tries to keep the reviewing process as short as possible and to inform the author within two months after submission.

The author receives proofs in about 6 weeks after acceptance. The paper will be published about 3 months after acceptance.

Submission Requirements

Language

Contributions to Behaviour must be written in English. Spelling should be consistent throughout.

Manuscript Structure

Contributions should be typed with numbered pages, numbered lines, double line spacing and wide margins throughout.

Title of the manuscript should be in roman (capitals only for the first letter and the first letters of proper nouns) should be as brief and informative as possible. In addition, a short title should be provided, which should not exceed 50 characters, spaces included.

Authors names in roman with capitals as normally used by the author (e.g., M.P. Haley; Els Van Duyse; Johan G. van Rhijn; P.G. McDonald; D. Muller-Schwarze), first name or initials as preferred, names separated by commas and by ‘&’ between the last two names, with references to affiliation addresses as superscripts (e.g. 1 ), or 1,2) in ascending order).

Affiliation: the institute where the work was done should be indicated under the authors’ names, with the first letters of major words in capitals. When the authors are based at different institutes, this should be indicated in superscript in front of the institute (e.g. 1Centre for Marine Sciences – corresponding to the references under ‘authors’).

E-mail addresses of corresponding authors may be added as numbered footnotes.

Summary and Keywords

Each article should be accompanied by a summary in English, which should mention all the principal facts and conclusions set forth in the paper. A similar summary in another relevant language may be added, but this is not required.

Three to eight keywords should be given.

Headings

Main headings in bold (Summary, Introduction, Material and methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgements, References or other variants if appropriate), capitals only for first letter of each sentence and first letters of proper nouns, separated from the subsequent text by an empty line.

Second level headings in italics, flush left, capitals only for first letter of each sentence and first letters of proper nouns, separated by an empty line from the text that follows.

Sub-subheadings in roman type, aligned to the left, capitals only for first letter of each sentence and proper nouns, separated by an empty line from the preceding text, the following text starts on the next line.

Italics

Italics should only be used for scientific species names, words that need to be emphasized (no italics for: e.g., i.e., et al., etc., cf.) and for mathematical and statistical variables such as p, F, U, t, N, r, but not for SD (standard deviation), SE (standard error), df (degrees of freedom) and NS (non significant).

Bold

Bold should only be used in exceptional cases of extra emphasis or in some formulas.

Capital Letters

Capitals should only be used for first letters of sentences, first letters proper nouns and first letters of specific words (e.g. tables, figures, experiments, behaviour patterns) that should be emphasized; small capitals for words that should be printed in capitals (e.g. ANOVA, MANOVA)

References

Reference citations in the text should consist of one or two authors and the year of publication or first author + et al. and year, all within brackets or only the year in brackets, authors separated by ‘&’, author(s) and year separated by comma. Different references should be separated by a semicolon and listed chronologically. If the list contains several references by the same author(s), extra years should be added to the first entrance of an author. Differentiate between references by the same author(s) from the same year by adding a, b, etc. Examples: (Gaston, 1977) or Gaston (1977); (Wingfield, 1985; Wingfield & Wada, 1989; Wingfield & Hahn, 1994; McDonald et al., 2001); (Silverin, 1993, 1998a; Wingfield & Hahn, 1994)

References should be listed in alphabetical order, italics only for scientific species names, capitals in titles (also for books) only for the first letter and first letters of proper nouns.

Figures and Tables

References to tables and figures should consist of the complete word, first letter capital (also in the middle of a sentence or in brackets) + number in Arabic numerals.

Examples: Figure 1 or (Figure 1); Table 7 or (Table 7).

Tables should be kept as simple as possible with at least 3 horizontal lines and additional lines if appropriate, data ordered in a convenient way. The title should give all details that are needed to understand the table except obvious footnotes. If appropriate, the level of significance of any value should be indicated with raised asterisks referring to a footnote; bold or italic typeface are to be avoided.

Figures should be submitted as separate source files in .eps, .tif, or .jpg format, in a size suitable for the typesetting area of the journal which is 118 x 180 mm. The resolution of these files should be at least 300 dpi for half-tone figures, and 600 dpi for line drawings. Number the files, and indicate in the manuscript where they are to appear (Fig. 1 here).

The text in a figure must be legible, and font size should not be smaller than 7 pt. The size of this lettering for any text in a figure should be the same for all figures in the manuscript. (We strongly advise you to make a printout first of any figure at the maximum size we can print it on: 118 x 180 mm. This will allow you to properly judge readability.)

Figure captions should not be attached to the figures but should be typed on separate pages and attached to the end of the manuscript.

Abbreviations

Abbreviations should be followed by ‘.’ unless the abbreviation is written with the last letter of the original word at the end position (thus: i.e. – e.g. – cf. – etc. but eds – Dr – edn) – measures (such as mm cm m s l) without ‘.’.

Quotations

Use single quotation marks (‘) for isolated words or conceptions, double for literal quotes (“).

Copyright

The use of general descriptive names, trademarks, etc., in this publication, even if the former are not specifically identified, is not to be taken as a sign that such names are exempt from the relevant protective Instructions to Authors’ laws and regulations and may accordingly be used freely by anyone.

Publication

Proofs

Upon acceptance, a PDF of the article proofs will be sent to the corresponding author by e-mail to check carefully for factual and typographic errors. Authors are responsible for checking these proofs and are strongly urged to make use of the Comment & Markup toolbar to note their corrections directly on the proofs. At this stage in the production process only minor corrections are allowed. Alterations to the original manuscript at this stage will result in considerable delay in publication and, therefore, are not accepted unless charged to the author. Proofs should be corrected and returned to the managing editor as quickly as possible.

E-offprints

A PDF file of the article will be supplied free of charge by the publisher to authors for personal use. Brill is a RoMEO yellow publisher.
