New paleopathology journal!

Elsevier is announcing one of its newest titles, the International Journal of Paleopathology, the official journal of the Paleopathology Association.

Note from IJP's first editor-in-chief, Dr. Jane Buikstra:
"The International Journal of Paleopathology (IJP) carves out a dedicated academic space for communication, collaborations and cutting-edge research in paleopathology - human and non-human.

As the new editor-in-chief of IJP, I am energized by the challenge of creating an academic journal format that seeks to encourage research and foster interdisciplinary communication. As the only dedicated paleopathology journal in the community, we are extremely proud to have the designation of Official Journal of the Paleopathology Association.

Looking ahead to our first year, we will be publishing a series of inaugural essays by leading paleopathologists focusing on General Paleopathology, the History of Paleopathology, Non-human Paleopathology, and Mummy Science. The issues of IJP will include articles, case studies, book reviews, technical notes and brief communications on topics such as ancient animal and human health, dental disease, historical paleopathology, imaging technologies, paleohistology, and paleoparasitology."

The journal is clearly in capable hands, and is an exciting addition to the anthropological archive. Submit your work online!
