Since we have been co-operating with many well-known and worldwide publishers, the continuous expanding of this system has resulted in the inclusion in our journal of reviews of scientific as well as popular books, which are reviewed by various specialists in the field. In order to discuss books from various angles, we allow two reviews of the same book (in exceptional cases even more) on the condition that the reviews are written with different views and provoke discussion. Also review of older books are welcome; although this is from a commercial point of view of minor importance for the publisher, it still can be of importance for colleague scientists and other interested people. You can send your book review (in English) with the following details: author(s)/editor(s), year, full title, place, publisher, number of pages, ISBN, price, hardback/paperback to the responsible managing editor. Also, send the scanned images (300 dpi or more) of the front and back of the book.
The PJVP offers the possibility of the publication of animations, such as ct scans of fossils or mummies or large picture databases.
Responses to published papers should be sent to the managing editor. Start the remark by mentioning the author, title, number of the issue, number of the paper and year. Do not forget to include your own name, institute, full address(es) and email address. The managing editor processes the response and decides whether to include it or not.
