Millisecond pulsars in timing arrays can act as probes for gravitational wave detection and improving the solar system ephemerides among several other applications. However, the stability of the integrated pulse profiles can limit the precision of the ephemeris parameters and in turn the applications derived from it. It is thus crucial for the pulsars in the array to have stable integrated pulse profiles. Here we present evidence for long-term profile instability in PSR J1022+1001 which is… Expand
