The Journal of Nematology has a New Publisher – and the First Issue is Out!
The Journal of Nematology has a new Publisher- Exeley, Inc.
The transition to the new publisher has caused some delay in publishing our regular issues. However, the first issue of the year (and the first with the new publisher) is now out: Volume 50, Issue 1 can be found at the JON website:
Back issues can be found at the old web site Journal Archives
Also at the Journal website is the Journal Overview, Editorial Board, Procedures for Submission, Style Guide, Abstracting and Indexing information and much more.
Hopefully we have now worked out the kinks and regular issues will continue to be released on time.
Also, a couple of excellent new feature that Exeley publishing has brought:
- DOI numbers will be associated with each article.
- Exeley will start publishing articles electronically “Online First” so that they will be available to readers faster, before being placed in issues.

Explore and enjoy.
Message from Past Editor in Chief that is still useful:
The Journal of Nematology now offers publication of Nematode Genome Announcements (NGA) and Nematode Transcriptome Announcements (NTA). These brief reports announce the sequencing and assembly of a nematode genome or transcriptome resource, along with basic technical information on DNA sequencing and bioinformatics methods used. This publishing initiative offers a new avenue to openly and concisely communicate the availability and relevance of genome and transcriptome sequence resources to the broader scientific community.
Guidelines for submission of this type of manuscript can be found here. JON Genome and Transcriptome Announcements Guidelines. See the 49-2 issue for examples.
The following policy change applies to all future submissions to the Journal of Nematology:
New species descriptions must now include molecular data (DNA sequence comparisons). If you have questions about this policy, please contact me.
If you are interested in becoming a subject editor for the journal, please let me know.
Reminders of existing journal policy:
– Please make sure your experiments have been repeated in space and time in addition to containing experimental replicates.
– Where appropriate, statistical analysis must be employed to determine significance and described thoroughly.
– Consult the JON Style Guide for proper formatting, headings, naming conventions and abbreviations.
Thank you all for your continued support!
