The Belgian Journal of Zoology - affordable open access

To the Belgian Journal of Zoology dedicated website

The Belgian Journal of Zoology (ISSN: 0777-6276) is an open-access journal (covered in ISI Web of Science, Current Contents and other leading databases of scientific publications) publishing papers in all fields of zoology with a focus on biodiversity and adaptations. The Belgian Journal of Zoology publishes primary research papers, short notes, reviews, opinion and technical papers. We offer golden open-access at a reasonable price (see instructions for authors) and if required, fast-track, high quality reviewing. The Belgian Journal of Zoology also welcomes manuscripts or short notes describing alien animal species invading Belgium.

The Belgian Journal of Zoology no longer publishes purely taxonomic papers. The Belgian Journal of Zoology is published jointly by the Royal Belgian Zoological Society and the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, with the support of the Direction Générale de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche and of the Universitaire Stichting van Belgie/Fondation Universitaire de Belgique. From 2010 onwards, the Bulletins of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences - Entomology/Biology have partly been merged with the Belgian Journal of Zoology and partly with the European Journal of Taxonomy.

The impact factor of the Belgian Journal of Zoology for 2015 has risen to 0,87.
