Notice to the authors

We announce with regret that after careful deliberation we made the decision to end the active phase of the journal, and, from March 10th, 2019, we no longer accept new submissions. The journal has been facing mounting challenges both in term of human resources and IT background, and was getting harder and harder to maintain. At this point, we feel that resuscitating the journal would require expensive investments that are not justified by the number of papers we publish.

We are thankful of the many editors and production staff, board members, and referees, for their hard work over the decades, and for the authors who chose IBVS to publish their results. We strive to process all remaining manuscripts and to maintain the archive of the journal here, and to to make the papers and data files available at external sources.

If you are looking for alternative places to publish, we may suggest the following places:
