European Journal of Taxonomy (EJT)


EJT.gifThe EJT Consortium, consisting of European natural history museums and botanical gardens, is proud to present the European Journal of Taxonomy!

EJT is an international, fully electronic, Open Access journal for descriptive taxonomy, in zoology, entomology, botany, and palaeontology. 

Publishing in EJT is free (there are no page charges) and also access is free (there are no subscription charges). So neither authors, nor readers have to pay!

EJT-papers must be original and of a high standard both in scientific content and technical execution (language, art work...). The scope of EJT is global; neither authorship nor the geographical region of study is restricted to Europe.

EJT publishes taxonomic contributions and revisions, monographs and opinion papers. Less comprehensive taxonomic papers (e.g. those dealing with a few species of a taxon) will be accepted for review provided their wider context and impact is both high and explained clearly.

EJT follows Creative Commons Copyright, so authors retain the copyright of their papers.



Coordinating institutional resources into a single publishing platform contributes to excellence, prevents repetition, and increases efficiency in the dissemination of taxonomic data, while providing a secure long-term platform at minimal cost.


EJT manuscripts should be submitted through the Open Journal Systems. Submit your article today on http://www.europeanjournaloftaxonomy.eu
where full Instructions to Authors are available.



The EJT consortium includes at present:

  • Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris, France
  • National Botanic Garden of Belgium, Meise, Belgium
  • Royal Museum for Central Africa, Tervuren, Belgium
  • Natural History Museum, London, United Kingdom
  • Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, Brussels, Belgium
  • Natural History Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, The Netherlands
  • Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, Madrid, Spain
  • Real Jardin Botánico, Madrid, Spain


On 24 October 2014, EJT published its 100th issue!

On 2 June 2017, EJT published its 1000th new species!
