Journal of Ichthyology is an English version of Voprosy ikhtiologii. Since its foundation in 1953, as an irregulary published collection of papers, and its establishment as a periodical in 1961, it has remained the leading domestic journal in all fields of ichthyology. All articles are reviewed and cover fish ecology, morphology, genetics, physiology, embryology, systematics, and fisheries biology. The Editorial Board welcomes articles from all countries of the world, provided they meet our scientific standards. Papers that are submitted in English, and accepted by the Editorial Board, are translated into Russian. Both versions are published simultaneously in Journal of Ichthyology and Voprosy ikhtiologii, respectively.
