Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research is considered to be a partnership program between Hindawi and Wiley. It is a peer-reviewed, quarterly published journal that now offers open access. The journal was established originally in 1963 and in 1994, it was re-established by John Wiley & Sons. Dr. Wilfried Westheide is the Editor in Chief of the Journal. The journal is also considered to be an international forum that publishes research papers of high quality on evolutionary biology and systematic zoology.
The Editorial Board of the Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research includes practicing researchers who are from different parts of the world. This is to ensure that the manuscripts of the journal are handled by experts of the particular field. The articles of the journal appear in a broad range of indexing and abstracting databases along with several services that help in exploring and assessing.
Aim and Scope of the Journal
The major goal of the journal is to give rise to a blend of results from different fields like animal geography, morphology, ecology, physiology, evolutionary genetics, ethology, developmental biology, population genetics, and molecular biology. Along with empirical papers, the journal also includes review articles and other theoretical contributions. The journal also prefers interdisciplinary as well as integrative contributions.
Discoverability of the articles
The journal includes articles from a wide range of indexing and abstracting databases along with several other services too. All the content Hindawi is recorded in Portico provides a permanent archiving facility for all the electronic scholarly journals.
The main focus of this journal is structured research of animal sciences interlinked with evolutionary study. The function of the journal is considered to be both a survey and a forum for various research and other fields related to it. The journal is mostly published in English, French, or German. Another target of the journal is to incorporate the original results of the research from fields like morphology, anatomy, physiology, general genetics, ethology, development biology, population genetics as well as molecular biology. Along with review articles and original research papers, there will also be letters to the editors and brief communications. Authors can also send criticisms of articles published earlier to make the journal a forum for the exchange of different ideas of science and discourse.
Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research is an exciting partnership between Hindawi and Wiley, which is now given complete open access. Even though the journal will maintain the title of Wiley, it will be hosted and published by Hindawi, as Hindawi has the expertise and experience in publishing titles with open access. There is a precise peer review process for the journal to maintain the quality of the journal. As the articles are given open access, they are free to read, share, and download. Upon acceptance, the authors will have to pay a charge for article publication. The journal is serving as a high-quality study source for students as well as science enthusiasts.
