The Journal of Invertebrate Pathology and the Society for Invertebrate Pathology have been partners in promoting and supporting invertebrate pathology research since the inception of the Society in 1967. The journal was inaugurated first, in 1959, as Journal of Insect Pathology. The name was changed to Journal of Invertebrate Pathology in 1965, at which time Edward Steinhaus wrote to Albert Sparks that he had proposed a society of the same name. A subsequent global survey of invertebrate pathologists showed overwhelming support for the establishment of the Society and inclusion of the Journal of Invertebrate Pathology as its official organ. In 1968, the Journal of Invertebrate Pathology was first Published under the auspices of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology. Since 1965, over 6,200 papers have been published with Society members well represented as authors. We highlight the history of the JIP-SIP connection as well as researchers and papers published that garnered significant attention from the scientific community. As well, we celebrate 50 years of enthusiastic encouragement and advancement of invertebrate pathology!
