PHYLLOMEDUSA publishes original research articles, short communications and review papers concerning the whole field of Herpetology. PHYLLOMEDUSA also maintains sections for Book Reviews. Manuscripts will be considered on condition that they have not been published elsewhere or are not under consideration for publication, in whole or in part, in another journal or book. Publication in PHYLLOMEDUSA, including color pictures, is free of charge. All manuscripts are subject to peer review. This process averages 90 days. Authors receive pdf proofs before publication and 30 reprints free of charge. Full-text pdf versions of all articles are available for free download in this homepage.

Manuscripts must contain significant new findings of fundamental and general herpetological interest and may not be considered if they do not meet these criteria. Surveys and descriptions of new species are published only where there is sufficient new biological information or taxonomic revision also involved to render the paper of general herpetological interest. Low priority is given to confirmatory studies, works that are primarily descriptive in nature, investigations primarily of local or regional interest, techniques unless of broad application, species range extensions, and descriptions of phenomena based on scanty data. Manuscripts should include a clear statement of purpose and/or hypothesis to be tested by the work, and may be rejected if this is lacking

Articles published in PHYLLOMEDUSA are indexed in the following databases: Web of Science (Science Citation Index Expanded), SCOPUS, Dimensions, Zoological Record, BIOSIS Previews, CABI Publishing, Current Contents (Agriculture, Biology & Environmental Sciences), and DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals). JCR (2021) = 0.500.
