OVERVIEW



List of Journals

Numerous journals publish papers on systematic and / or morphological research. It is not easy to keep track of them all and to decide which one is the best journal to submit a given manuscript to. In order to assist others with finding the right journal for their manuscripts, I decided to put a list of journals on my websites that publish papers in the abovementioned areas. The list comes in two versions: one is alphabetical, in the other the journals are ranked by the average number of citations an article receives in the year after its publication.




Open Access Publishing

A revolution is taking place in the area of scientific publishing. I am talking about the transition from journals that cover their costs by charging for access to the publications to a new type of journal that makes its publications free of charge to everyone ("open access") but requires to charge the authors in order to cover the costs of publication. It is important that scientists are aware of this, because this revolution is driven by them and the success depends on the active support of scientists. To raise awareness of these issues, I decided to create a webpage about open access publishing. To access it, please click on the link below:
