MycoKeys, or why we need a new journal in mycology?

Thorsten Lumbsch, Andrew N. Miller, Dominik Begerow, Lyubomir Penev

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The launch of MycoKeys coincided with several revolutionary changes to the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (ICBN) (Knapp et al. 2011 and Hawksworth 2011, in this volume, Miller et al. 2011) that occurred during the Nomenclature Section of the XVIII International Botanical Congress (IBC2011) in Melbourne, Australia. The path to the present launch, however was paved years ago by the lively discussions on electronic publication and dissemination of biodiversity information in the Internet era (e.g., Knapp 2010, Penev et al. 2010a), as well as by the successful start of its sister journals, PhytoKeys and ZooKeys.
