2020-09-18

The EJT editorial team is happy to announce the launch of its new website! On top of an updated design and improved navigation, the journal has also integrated several new features:

Distributed data sets: the EJT website now provides a link from each article directly to the nomenclatural acts, taxonomic treatments, figures and specimen data available on GBIF and BLR (links active 7 days max. after publication)

• DOIs: all supplementary files published as supporting data for an EJT publication will henceforth be assigned an individual DOI

• Twitter feed: find and share all EJT publications and news on Twitter with @ejtaxonomy

The European Journal of Taxonomy is a peer-reviewed international journal in descriptive taxonomy, covering the eukaryotic world. Its content is fully electronic and Open Access. It is published and funded by a consortium of European natural history institutions. Neither authors nor readers have to pay fees. All articles published in EJT are compliant with the different nomenclatural codes. EJT is an archived and indexed journal that welcomes scientific contributions from all over the world, both in content and authorship. If you have any questions about EJT, please contact us.

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.
