Ethos is an interdisciplinary and international quarterly journal devoted to scholarly articles dealing with the interrelationships between the individual and the sociocultural milieu, between the psychological disciplines and the social disciplines.

The journal publishes work from a wide spectrum of research perspectives. Recent issues, for example, include papers on religion and ritual, medical practice, child development, family relationships, interactional dynamics, history and subjectivity, feminist approaches, emotion, cognitive modeling and cultural belief systems. Methodologies range from analyses of language and discourse, to ethnographic and historical interpretations, to experimental treatments and cross-cultural comparisons.

Ethos is published by the American Anthropological Association through Wiley-Blackwell. Ethos is indexed or abstracted in the online and CD-ROM databases Abstracts in Anthropology, Anthropological Index, Anthropological Literature, Current Contents, Linguistic and Language Behavior Abstracts, Middle East: Abstracts and Index, Psychological Abstracts, and Sociological Abstracts.
