Cambridge University Press ceased publication of the Journal of Zoology on completion of Volume 267 / 2005.
Since its foundation in 1830, the traditional aims of the Journal of Zoology
have been to publish research on taxonomy and on descriptions of new species of animals. However, with the proliferation of specialist journals, which cater for these important topics, the Editors have redirected the focus of the Journal
to publish hypothesis-driven research that will be of greater interest to the general reader in zoology. Apart from the exclusion of papers of only specialist interest, the journal will continue to publish original research and reviews within the whole field of zoology, and it will continue to provide information on the latest trends and developments in this ever-expanding subject.
