Organisms, Diversity and Evolution
Published/Hosted by Elsevier Science.
Organisms, Diversity and Evolution is published by the Gesellschaft für Biologische Systematik (GfBS) and the Urban & Fischer Verlag. The Journal consists of a printed version and an electronic supplement. It is devoted to the understanding of organismal diversity and addresses an international audience. Manuscripts should be written in English. The Journal accepts four kinds of papers: papers for a news section reserved for discussion, and up-to-date reports about the development of national and international science policies as far as relevant to research in biological systematics; review papers; original research papers of high quality of systematic, phylogenetic and evolutionary contents on all organismal groups, recent and fossil. Papers emphasizing general aspects of systematic, phylogenetic and evolutionary research, having a widely integrative approach, or dealing with interorganismal relationships will be preferred. Species descriptions will be accepted as part of manuscripts with information of general interest. Additional information to printed papers (e.g. sequence alignments, colour plates, videos, 3D-illustrations, etc.) can be published in the eletronic form; purely taxonomic papers to be published in the electronic supplement by GfBS. Extended abstracts of these publications will be contained in the printed Journal. The electronic supplement will be available on the internet independent of the printed Journal to everybody interested.
