Elsevier Launches International Journal for Parasitology: Parasites and Wildlife

AMSTERDAM, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

New open access journal dedicated to collaborations and cutting-edge research in parasitology of all wildlife

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions, in association with the Australian Society for Parasitology, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, International Journal for Parasitology: Parasites and Wildlife.

The new electronic open access journal is closely affiliated with the leading parasitology journal, International Journal for Parasitology, and will address the growing impact of parasites on the health and conservation of wildlife, an area of research closely linked with changing environmental factors including climate. The concept of 'one health' - that is, the nature of interactions between wildlife, people, and domestic animals, including disease emergence and zoonoses - will be a central theme of the journal.

Professor Denise Doolan, President of the Australian Society for Parasitology, said, "The Society is delighted to have fostered the founding of this new journal which we anticipate will provide a valuable forum for the dissemination of original discoveries spanning many areas of parasites and wildlife including ecology, conservation, biodiversity, and surveillance."

The journal will publish the results of original research on parasites of all wildlife. This includes free-ranging, wild populations, as well as captive wildlife, semi-domesticated species (e.g. reindeer) and farmed populations of recently domesticated or wild-captured species (e.g. cultured fishes). Articles on all aspects of wildlife parasitology are welcomed, including those covering taxonomy, biodiversity and distribution, ecology and epidemiology, population biology and host-parasite relationships.

"We are excited with the launch of International Journal for Parasitology: Parasites and Wildlife, which will cover the rapidly developing area of the parasitology of wildlife, a subject of ever-increasing importance," added Dale Seaton, Executive Publisher at Elsevier. "With this launch we continue and expand our excellent relationship with the Australian Society for Parasitology, and add to our portfolio of leading parasitology journals. Furthermore, by utilizing the open access model option for this title, Elsevier is again enabling the broadest possible access to quality research content in a sustainable way that meets the society's needs."
