Following the demise of Cryptozoology (published by the now-defunct International Society of Cryptozoology), there has been no peer-reviewed scientific journal devoted to cryptozoology for quite some time.
The Journal of Cryptozoology has been launched to remedy this situation and fill a notable gap in the literature of cryptids and their investigation.
For although some mainstream zoological journals are beginning to show slightly less reluctance than before to publish papers with a cryptozoological theme, it is still by no means an easy task for such papers to gain acceptance, and, as a result, potentially significant, serious contributions to the subject are not receiving the scientific attention that they deserve.
Now, however, they have a journal of their own once again, and one that adheres to the same high standards for publication as mainstream zoological periodicals.
This volume contains:
- Editorial - Karl P.N. Shuker
- A Digital Search Assistant for Cryptozoological Field Expeditions - Andrew May
- The Queensland Tiger: Further Evidence on the 1871 Footprint - Malcolm Smith
- The Second 'Scapasaurus' (Re)Discovered - Markus Hemmler
- Identifying 'Jaws', the Margaret River Mammal Carcase - Darren Naish
