Abstract

After an unbroken production run, first starting in March 1908, the hardcopy of the Cambridge University Press (CUP) journal Parasitology will cease in December 2021. From January 2022 onwards, all published articles will be online only, though we will continue the regular production cycle of 14 issues per year, a nod to the proud printed press tradition. Each issue typically groups together 10-15 papers, with two earmarked as Special Issues. The latter are commissioned by John Ellis, Deputy Editor-in-Chief & Special Issue Editor. For their easier perusal, the 28 Special Issues from the last decade now feature more prominently on our CUP website (see https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/parasitology), allocated their own navigation tab, alongside a tabbed virtual collection of other articles selected post-production. These are drawn together upon certain #World_Day_Themes to promote their broader academic appeal and impact.
