Maney Publishing has completed the purchase of the two journals of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM). Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology (ATM) and the Annals of Tropical Paediatrics (ATP) have been published by Maney under licence since 2002.
Under the new arrangements Maney will retain the services of the two members of staff hitherto employed by the LSTM, Dr Keith Wallbanks, editor of ATM, and Vanessa Coulter, editor of ATP.
Over the last century the Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology has evolved from a house journal of the School to become one of the world’s leading serial publications in its field. The main aims of the current editors, however, remain that of the journal’s first editor, Ronald Ross: simply to make the results of the relevant research more widely known, to encourage those who feel discouraged, and to strengthen the links between the many scientific communities involved in tropical medicine, global parasitology and medical entomology.
First published in 1981, Annals of Tropical Paediatrics continues to provide a highly respected international forum for medical problems, achievements and research in paediatrics and child health in the tropics and sub-tropics. Published quarterly, the journal presents peer-reviewed papers that cover the whole range of diseases in childhood, and the social, cultural and geographical settings in which they occur. The journal caters for everyone with an interest in tropical child health, including specialists in tropical medicine and infectious diseases, parasitologists and paediatricians.
