Description

First published in 1963, Advances in Parasitology contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews in all areas of interest in contemporary parasitology. Now edited by J. R. Baker, Ralph Muller, and David Rollinson and supported by an international Editorial Board, the series includes medical studies on parasites of major influence, such as trypanosomes and scabies, and reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, which shape current thinking and applications. In 1999, the Institute for Scientific Information released figures showing that Advances in Parasitology has an Impact Factor of 4.913, placing it second in the highly competitive category of Parasitology.
