The Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery (JHMS) is designed to be a source of information for veterinarians and others involved in the health of reptiles and amphibians. JHMS is interested in all aspects of care for these species, including natural history and maintenance in captivity as well as particular medical and surgical problems.

Manuscripts are expected to be original works that have not been previously published (with the exception of abstracts of 250 words or less). All authors are welcome to submit manuscripts for consideration. Student authors (including undergraduate, veterinary, graduate, residents, interns, etc.) enrolled in a full-time education program will be granted a complimentary 1-year online student membership to the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians once they have completed the submission process. Please contact the Managing Editor, Dana Varble, at for further information.

English language editing is available through Charlesworth Author Services at a discounted...
