Published History

Herpetological Conservation and Biology was conceived in 2006 out of necessity.  In a time when most journals shunned manuscripts that were descriptive or natural history oriented, our journal filled an obvious void. 

 

Herpetological Conservation and Biology is still unique today. Although there are an increasing number of open-access electronic journals, we do not charge authors exorbitant fees for the privilege of making their valuable research available to anyone with access to a computer.

 

Herpetological Conservation and Biology has chronicled its inception and growth in a series of published editorials available at the link below.
