About the journal

Folia Parasitologica was founded in 1954 as a national parasitological yearbook entitled “Československá parasitologie” that published articles in Czech. In 1966 it started to appear under its present name and to publish articles quarterly, in English. In the 1990s, Folia Parasitologica transformed from the periodical of still rather a local impact into a truly international journal. It is covered by most major abstracting and indexing services (ISI Web of Knowledge, BIOSIS, CAB Abstracts, MEDLINE, etc.).

Folia Parasitologica publishes original research articles, research notes and review articles. The subject scope covers all branches of animal parasitology, including morphology, taxonomy, biology, ecology, biochemistry, physiology, immunology and molecular biology of parasites, host-parasite relationships and parasite evolution. All submissions complying with this description will be given a prompt, critical and unbiased evaluation.
