The EJT standardized material citation format is now mandatory


As of May 15th, it will be mandatory for all authors to use the EJT standardized material citations format. European Journal of Taxonomy operates an XML conversion for material citations, allowing the rich specimen data and relative nomenclatural acts to be distributed to biodiversity databases and linked back to the article (see the ‘FAIR & Open Science’ policy of the journal). To ensure optimal results, it is necessary to strictly follow the format. We kindly ask all authors to familiarize themselves with the EJT material citation format and to ensure that their submissions adhere to this standard. Detailed guidelines for formatting material citations can be found in the ‘Material Citations Formatting Guide’ (PDF download). Please note that submissions that do not conform to the EJT material citation format will be returned to the authors for technical revision.
