About the Journal
Hamadryad was established in 1976 and is a free and open-access biological science journal aimed at publishing novel research and observations on the herpetofauna of the Indian subcontinent. It includes full-length articles and short notes on the natural history, ecology, taxonomy, captive husbandry, and conservation of reptiles and amphibians of India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
Hamadryad publishes two volumes per year in English. The journal was paused from publication from 2018-2021, but it resumed in 2022 and is now revived from its hiatus with semiannual online publication.
