EJT publishes issue 250!!

Today, December 12th 2016, EJT has published its 250th issue. Since issue one was published early September 2011, our journal has described more than 900 new taxa in close to 7500 pages: 839 new species, 75 new genera and 7 new (sub-) families. Since its start 5 years ago, EJT also increased its consortium to 7 institutional members, tightened its link with CETAF and obtained an ISI impact factor for two consecutive years. We can thus safely say that EJT has come of age and has become an established journal in descriptive taxonomy.
This is all excellent news, of course! However, in some ways, EJT has become a victim of its own success. Since we received our first ISI impact factor mid 2015, the number of submissions has increased exponentially, while our production capacity has not increased in the same way. Please remember that EJT is produced fully in-house by the Natural History Institutes that are member of the EJT consortium and fully finance the journal. Therefore, EJT has a fixed number of pages that can be produced annually and recently we have accepted more papers than could fit into our page budget.
This has a variety of consequences, two of which are most relevant for our contributing authors.
