American Journal of Primatology

The Official Journal of the American Society of Primatologists

The American Journal of Primatology publishes original research reports, scholarly reviews, brief reports, and book reviews on all topics relevant to the study of primates, including all aspects of their anatomy, behavior, development, ecology, evolution, genetics, nutrition, physiology, reproduction, systematics, conservation, husbandry, and use in biomedical research.

We are pleased to announce that beginning January 01, 2008; Paul A. Garber of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Illinois, Urbana will serve as the Executive Editor of the American Journal of Primatology. Coinciding with Paul's editorship, AJP will have a new email address ( and a new on-line submission and peer review manuscript submission system, Manuscript Central. This exciting feature for American Journal of Primatology enables authors to submit their manuscripts online to expedite the peer review process. Authors also have the ability to check the status of their manuscripts during the peer review process. Manuscript Central will allow us to move manuscripts through the peer review process more expeditiously and will decrease time to publication. Paul and I are working closely with Wiley, our publisher, to insure a smooth transition.

Beginning the first of the year, 2008, all new manuscripts must be submitted through Manuscript Central via the American Journal of Primatology journal homepage ( There you will find a link for "Online Submission". Using that link, the corresponding author will be instructed to create a user account. Once that account is created, manuscripts are to be submitted through "Author Center". After the manuscript has been successfully submitted, authors will receive an automated email reply which will be followed up by an email from the AJP executive editor acknowledging receipt of the manuscript.

We look forward to enhancing the prominence and scholarly excellence of our journal.
