[Extract] On behalf of the Australian Society for Parasitology and Elsevier, it is our privilege to welcome you to the inaugural issue of the International Journal for Parasitology – Drugs and Drug Resistance (IJP-DDR). This new journal is a partner journal to the International Journal for Parasitology (IJP). The mandate of IJP-DDR is to publish original research aimed at developing drugs for control of unicellular or multicellular parasites of human or veterinary importance. It is intended to disseminate new knowledge in the area of anti-parasitic drugs and drug development and foster research aimed at defining mechanisms of drug resistance, as well as stimulating debate on matters of current controversy in these areas. In keeping with current publishing trends, IJP-DDR will be an open-access journal.

The two founding Editors-in-Chief, Kevin Saliba and Andrew Kotze, will be responsible for the editing of submissions in the area of unicellular and multicellular parasites, respectively. They are supported by an internationally respected team of Editorial Board members spanning the many specialist research areas within the broad field of parasitology and drugs.

We encourage colleagues in this field of research to submit appropriate papers to IJP-DDR. Please send your pre-submission inquiries to the communal Elsevier e-mail address <http://ees.elsevier.com/ijpddr/>.

At a time when parasite drug resistance continues to threaten human and animal health, the Australian Society for Parasitology is delighted to have fostered the founding of this new journal which we anticipate will provide an excellent forum for the dissemination of original discoveries in this critical area of parasitology research.
