Advances in Parasitology

Aim & scope

Advances in Parasitology is recognised as a leading review serial which is consistently well placed in terms of impact factor and citations. Major reviews on all aspects of medical, veterinary and wild-life parasitology are considered. The journal provides an outlet for authoritative reviews from experts in the field. While emphasis is given to modern molecular approaches contributions across all disciplines are encouraged including traditional areas such as ecology and taxonomy. Eclectic volumes are supplemented by thematic volumes dedicated to a particular topic of recognised interest and importance. Ideas and suggestions for reviews are welcome, please contact the editors directly.

First published in 1963, Advances in Parasitology contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews in all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology; includes medical studies on parasites of major public health burden, veterinary parasitology, ecology and evolutionary studies and reviews of more traditional areas, such as taxonomy and life history, which shape current thinking and applications. Eclectic volumes are supplemented by thematic volumes that may be suggested to the editors.
