African Primates is an open-access, scientific, international, indexed, formal online journal. Through rigorous peer-review, the journal publishes original research articles and reports (full length or in the form of short communications), review articles, “position papers,” and other information focused on the nonhuman primates of Africa. Submissions concerning aspects of behavior, ecology, and conservation are welcomed. African Primates therefore encourages submission of relevant information in the form of research findings, field survey results, advances in field and laboratory techniques, field action alerts, and book reviews.

The aim of African Primates is to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas among primatologists, conservationists, and other professionals working with primates in Africa or focused on the ecosystems which support these primates.

By widely and freely disseminating the journal, the intent is to enhance the conservation of Africa’s primates through:

* fostering interest in these taxa and increasing knowledge relevant to their survival;

* transmitting information about factors and situations that promote or work against conservation of African primate species or populations;

* providing a forum for discussion and debate regarding all aspects of knowledge relevant to conserving Africa’s primate fauna and their habitats.

Manuscripts should be in English or French.
