Aims and Scope

Focus and Scope

Acta Biologica Sibirica is a peer-reviewed, open-access, launched to accelerate research and free information exchange in taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography,  faunistics, floristics, Biological systematics, nature conservation and protected areas.

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 following categories of papers will be considered:

  • original research articles
  • reviews - longer articles, offering a comprehensive overview, historical analysis or/and future perspectives of a topic
  • short communications
  • letters and discussion papers
  • book reviews
  • memorial articles

The journal publishes electronic versions of the articles when these are ready to publish, without delays that might be caused by completion of an issue. These electronic versions are not "pre-prints" but final and immutable (Version of Record), hence available for the purposes of biological nomenclature. The date indicated on the electronic version is to be considered the actual publication date.
