The following URLs are selected examples taken from a poster on Intenet 
Resources presented at the Spring  Meeting of the British Society for 
Parasitology at Bangor, Wales, 1996. I had so many requests for copies that 
I though that it might be useful for others if I made it generally available.

This is also available in HTML format as an e-mail attachment; please e-mail 
me if you are interested.        

                    
                                            PARASITOLOGICAL URLS


One of the major advances in science in the past few years has been in the 
spread of Internet facilities for both communication and the transmission of 
information. A year or so ago there was little to interest the average 
parasitologist apart from electronic mail, but even within the past 6 months 
a veritable explosion of resources (of variable value and quality) has 
become available. This has been encouraged by the development of better 
software which has given the noncomputer specialist access to FTP, Gopher 
and Web (World Wide Web) resources, and the graphic facilities of Web 
browsers, such as Netscape,  which have attracted literally millions of  users.

Below are listed examples of (mainly Web) sites and resources which might be 
of interest to parasitologists.

Journals/Publications	

The usefulness of these varies. Some journals give little more than 
subscription information. Many, however, give tables of contents (TOCs) for 
recent issues, and some permit downloading of abstracts. The Korean Journal 
of Parasitology permits the text of entire articles to be downloaded. The 
Japanese Journal of Parasitology features Parasite of the Month!
