The Journal of Parasitology is the official publication of the American Society of Parasitologists (ASP). It has been in print continuously since 1914, when it was founded by Henry Baldwin Ward. The journal focuses on general parasitology, as well as parasites of medical, veterinary, and economic importance. Most of the emphasis rests with eukaryotic parasites, although vectors for prokaryotic organisms and viruses are also included. The journal is printed at Allen Press in Lawrence, Kansas, in six issues per year. Institutional subscriptions are available. Membership in ASP includes receipt of the Journal of Parasitology, a quarterly Newsletter, and abstracts for the annual meetings; students can join at a much reduced rate. The journal is online via BioOne. The editor of the journal is Dr. Michael V.K. Sukhdeo. For further information regarding publication in the journal, contact the editorial office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
