This journal covers research in behavioral genetics. Behavioral genetics is an interdisciplinary field between genetics and psychology and the goal is to understand the genetic underpinnings of behavior, not necessarily human behavior. Quantifying the genetic causes also involves quantifying the non-genetic, environmental causes, so the name is somewhat misleading. Traditionally human behavioral genetics has been done using family studies such as the popular twin studies, however new DNA-based methods such as GREML are quickly gaining traction.
