Upcoming Changes to The Journal of Parasitology


The Journal of Parasitology (JP) is the official journal of the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP). For over 100 years our journal has featured original parasite research, and society news.



According to the JP's editor,

Dr. Richard Clopton:


"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:

  1. No page charges when the corresponding author is a member of ASP.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.


Also - Citation Styles for The Journal of Parasitology are now available for use on Endnote and Zotero.
