Natural history institutions are welcomed to join the EJT consortium and to get involved if they share the following principles:
- descriptive taxonomic research is essential to safeguard our planet’s biodiversity, and remains one of the core missions of natural history institutions and their staff;
- dissemination of original research, as well as the ability to use and reuse data as freely as possible is the key to innovation and further advancement of science;
- publishing is part of the research process, and natural history institutions should be able to preserve their in-house publishing expertise;
- scholarly publications should be made accessible to all, at no charge



Nesrine Akkari is the new EJT topical entomology editor


After several years of dedicated work as EJT topical Entomology editor, Gavin Broad of the London Natural History Museum has asked to be replaced; owing to the fact that he has received several new duties at work. However, he will remain on board as the section editor for Hymenoptera. We thank Gavin for his past and future efforts, and wish him all the best in his new life!

The new EJT topical Entomology editor is Nesrine Akkari from the Natural History Museum of Vienna (Austria). We heartily welcome Nesrine to the team of EJT editors and desk editors and are much looking forward to working with her. Below is a short CV. Great having you on board Nesrine!
