Methods in Ecology and Evolution is a peer-reviewed scientific journal focused on advancing new methodologies in ecology and evolution. It began publication in 2010, and is the second youngest journal of the British Ecological Society. Methods in Ecology and Evolution is only available online. According to the 2014 Journal Citation Reports, the journal was ranked 9th out of 149 journals in the category "Ecology".[1]

Methods in Ecology and Evolution publishes methodological papers from all areas of ecology and evolution, including statistical and theoretical methods, methods in phylogenetics, and fieldwork methodologies.[2]

As well as publishing research papers, the journal encourages the publication of supplementary material such as computer code, methodological tutorials, and explanatory videos.[2] A regular podcast is produced by the editorial office, in which selected authors are asked to discuss their papers in greater depth.[3]
