"Beginning in January 2019, we are relaunching the Journal of Parasitology for its second century of publication with a complete revision of our policies, charges, and distribution."
Upcoming changes will go into effect with the first 2019 volume, and include:
No page charges when the corresponding author is a member of ASP.
Continuous online publication. Manuscripts will be available online as soon as the final, edited version is available. This change will decrease turn-around time, and help JP meet its goal of a submission to publication timeline of 8-10 weeks.
Rather than creating six print publications throughout the year, we will create one ink-on-paper printing of The Journal of Parasitology in December of each year. The Journal of Parasitology will publish 6 issues online each year as before.
