Zoological Bibliography

Publishing may be article by article or with an Editorial Notice or with one of our periodic Notes sections. Pending a clarification of VAT status the issues of Volume 3 may be obtained below. A subscription system will be proposed to permit access to this portal for reading on site and, presuming eventual agreement to this, for obtaining downloads. Three levels of subscription are planned, one for individuals and two for institutions (a. inclusive of LAN usage within the institution; b. inclusive of a LAN that is open to external readers). Permits will be for one volume and volumes will be considered complete when or soon after the page count reaches 160 pages. Occasionally Supplements may be produced, associated with a volume, and provided without extra cost to subscribers.

This is dedicated to two pioneers in this field Charles Davies Sherborn 1861-1942 and Charles Wallace Richmond 1868-1932. It will feature articles relating to dates of publication, especially of works that appeared in parts.

An occasional publication reporting on investigations into the bibliography of zoology, chiefly relating to dates of publication (especially of works issued in parts), problems of authorship, examples of cancellantia, and other bibliographical features that might have a bearing on nomenclatural problems. Since publication will be only online, most papers can be published very rapidly.

Guidelines to authors are provided at the end of every issue, and also may be downloaded [HERE].
