THE 2020 ASIH Board of Governors voted to change the name of the Society journal from Copeia to Ichthyology & Herpetology. This vote closed electronically on 2 July 2020 and stemmed from a motion from the Editor of Copeia that was supported unanimously by EXEC and by a 77 vote margin by the Board of Governors (88 in favor and 11 opposed to the name change). This change will begin with the first issue of 2021, and the journal will maintain volume number continuity with Copeia such that Ichthyology & Herpetology will begin in 2021 with volume 109.
