About the Journal

Focus and Scope

It is green open-access e-journal that publishes original research in the field of experimental and field biology. 

The journal publishes original, previously unpublished articles on the following fields:

  • Faunistics
  • Floristics
  • Biogeography
  • Biological systematics
  • Nature conservation and protected areas
  • Reviews of published articles and monographs on the above topics
  • Memorial articles

Preference is given to articles in English. There are no restrictions on the article volume and number of articles in the issue. The journal is published four times a year in the “continuous publication” mode.

In the fields of faunistics and floristics, we accept articles of two types: floral and faunal lists on any region of the world (areas, regions, countries, mountain ranges, national parks), and faunal and floral discoveries (finding new species for the regions, additions to previously published inventories…). We also accept articles on methodology of faunal and floral studies. The materials up to three pages are placed in the category Short Communication.

The journal policy includes a mandatory procedure of double blind peer review. Preference is given to articles illustrated with distribution maps, photographs of biotops, biological objects in nature and collection specimens.

Frequency: Since 2020 Acta Bioloigca Sibirica applies a rolling publication principle, meaning that the final versions of articles (i.e. with pagination and complete citation information) are published and allocated to a rolling volume as and when they are ready. We will publish one rolling volume consisting of a single issue per calendar year from 2020. All the articles will be continuously paginated and the universal digital object identifier (DOI) should be used for citations.
