Journal of Parasite Research

Aims and Scope


Journal of Parasite Research is an international open access, peer-reviewed, online journal that produces high-quality papers on all aspects of human and animal parasitology. This journal focuses to gather scientists from around the world performing in the parasitology field to share their latest discoveries in atomic and translational advances and to incorporate knowledge. In specific, this will also cover the molecular biology and biochemistry of parasitic protozoa, kinetoplastids, and helminths and their interactions with both the definitive and intermediate host.


JPAR is a global platform for researchers and healthcare professionals to share and discuss new findings related to parasitology. Its main objective is to provide a forum for the dissemination of new knowledge, principles, and practices related to the field of parasitology and to build a strong community of scientists and healthcare professionals with an interest in the development and prevention of parasitic diseases, parasites, and parasitology-related research topics. JPAR focuses on the latest research findings in the field of parasitology, including the life cycle, distribution and impact of parasites, strategies to prevent and treat parasites, and preclinical studies. JPAR strives to publish comprehensive and impactful scientific information that is relevant to understanding and resolving current and future global health challenges related to parasites.


JPAR strongly considers and welcomes cutting-edge research from a broad range of disciplines such as biology, microbiology, epidemiology, public health, medicine, biochemistry, genetics, and entomology. The journal also considers reports dealing with the development of vaccines, drug and drug target design, detection, diagnostics, and novel bioinformatic approaches. JPAR welcomes research in all aspects of parasitology, including but not limited to vector control, epidemiology, host-parasite interactions, protection strategies, immunity, and biodefense. Additionally, JPAR takes an interdisciplinary approach and encourages submissions from other research areas, such as cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, immunology, and biotechnology that are pertinent to the study of parasites.


JPAR is committed to encouraging medical research in the field of parasitology so that the latest advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of parasitic diseases can be understood and disseminated. JPAR seeks contributions from scientists, researchers, and practitioners in relevant fields to make the journal a premier source of scientific breakthroughs. The journal provides a platform for the dissemination of new knowledge related to parasites and the diseases they cause. It publishes original research, reviews, meta-analyses, editorials, and short communications related to the field of parasitology. JPAR emphasizes research in areas including, but not limited to, molecular parasitology, epidemiology, and vectors of parasitic diseases.


It is dedicated to exploring the different aspects of parasite biology and epidemiology, such as the ecological impact of parasitic diseases on their hosts, techniques used in the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of diseases caused by parasites, drug efficacy and development studies, and genome and molecular approaches to the study of parasites. The journal also covers such topics as the medical, agricultural, and public health significance of parasitism, as well as new and emerging global trends in the transmission and control of parasitic diseases. The journal is particularly interested in submissions from the areas of immunology, pathology, epidemiology, and public health, as well as parasitology-related basic and applied research.
