VOLUME 4 OF THE JOURNAL OF CRYPTOZOOLOGY IS NOW PUBLISHED



I'm very happy to announce that Vol. 4 of the Journal of Cryptozoology – currently the world's only peer-reviewed scientific journal devoted to mystery animals – is now published.

The four papers contained in this volume constitute a quartet of very different but equally interesting and significant contributions to cryptozoology. Namely:

An insightful examination by Paul Michael Donovan of the original occurrence and subsequent dispersal and gradual generalisation in meaning of a famous cryptid term – 'bunyip'.

An exhaustive and exceedingly valuable checklist compiled by Dr Charles G.M. Paxton and Adrian J. Shine of identities proposed over time for what must surely be the world's premier cryptid – the Loch Ness monster.

A very pertinent application of DNA analysis by Dr Haskell V. Hart to alleged cryptozoological (bigfoot) samples, a practical approach that I anticipate becoming ever more important in this field.

The presentation by Bruce A. Champagne of a very comprehensive, novel type proposal for water monsters.

The journal is now actively calling for submissions in relation to Vol. 5. These should be emailed directly to me. Before doing so, however, all contributors must ensure that their manuscripts have adhered to the journal's presentation style and requirements, as given in each volume's Instructions to Contributors section, and online in the journal's website (click here) - where this newest volume of the journal (and all of its earlier ones too) can be purchased directly. In addition, Vol. 4 can be purchased here on Amazon US, and here on Amazon UK.
