Journals tracked by the Reptile Database

(including a number of journals not tracked as indicated; we try to compile a complete list of herp journals here)

Although we do go through a lot of books for background information, photos, and other data, the majority of new data in the database comes from journal articles.

Literature curation team: the following volunteers help us to scan and read papers and extract data into the database:

Andrew Durso, Mark O'Shea, Ryan Ellis, Shai Meiri, Eleanor Gladding, Sebastian Lotzkat, John Steffen, Catherine Yasuda, Erich Hofmann, Julie Ray, John Phillips, Gill Murray-Dickson, Nicolas Martinez Torres, Scott Rush, Daniel Escoriza, Vivek Sharma, A. A. Thasun Amarasingh", Igor Doronin, Amr Salah, Alexandra Telea, Ivan Villalobos, Michal Berec, Consuelo Alarcon, Sarah A. Tomke, Daniel Jablonski, Tim Colston

Please let us know if you want to join that effort or if you are interested in more details.

Below are the journals that we track for reptile-related papers. If you see papers in other journals, please send us the reference, or even better, the paper/s to have it/them included. We only track those journals regularly that have some sort of alert service (or which we have subscribed to). We check those without alerts (labelled by no alert in the list) only irregularly. Letters in parentheses indicate a convenient access point and subscription information (B = BioOne, S = ScienceDirect (Elsevier), W = Wiley, Z =ZenScientist Blogpost, defunct as of 2017).
