Publisher: The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology
The Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology (JVP) is the bimonthly journal of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. It is devoted to studies on the evolution, functional morphology, taxonomy, phylogeny, biostratigraphy, paleoecology and paleobiogeography of fossil vertebrates. JVP publishes high quality peer-reviewed original articles, and occasional reviews, interdisciplinary papers and book reviews. It is international in scope, and emphasizes both specimen- and field-based based research and the use of high quality illustrations. Priority is given to articles dealing with topics of broad interest to the entire vertebrate paleontology community and to high-impact specialist studies. Articles dealing with narrower topics, including notes on taxonomic name changes (unless these deal with errors published in in JVP), preliminary site reports, and documentation of new specimens of well-known taxa, are afforded lower priority.
