The following articles (Original Articles and Brief Communications) have been accepted for publication in Evolution and are available for digests. New articles are posted every few days. To submit a digest about one of the following articles, follow the writing instructions and submission instructions by the due date listed.
Digests will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Only one digest will be published for each article. Articles for which a digest has already been received are marked “Digest received.” Check this page before submitting to confirm that a digest has not already been received for your selected article.
Very rarely, two digests for the same manuscript are received within a few hours of each other. In that event, only one (typically the one received first) proceeds to peer review. We are very sorry when this happens, but because the submissions are manually curated, it is impossible to fully prevent this from happening altogether.
Please note that deadlines are approximate and subject to slight changes in response to publication schedules.
