About the Journal


TAXA (Journal of Taxonomy and Systematics) is an international and interdisciplinary open-access journal. It publishes original research articles, review articles, and communications that cover the conception, naming, and classification of all groups of organisms: Eubacteria, Archaebacteria, Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia. The journal focuses on improving our understanding of taxonomic knowledge, the relationship between all taxonomic levels and nature, biodiversity origins, and conservation.

There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Our goal is to encourage scientists and research groups to publish as many experimental and theoretical results of their research as possible. Full experimental details and/or study methods must be provided for research articles so that the results can be reproduced.


Such fields of interest include those given below but are not limited to the following:

  • Taxonomy, evolution, and biodiversity
  • Microtaxonomy and macrotaxonomy
  • Taxonomic hierarchy
  • Linnean taxonomy
  • Molecular systematics
  • Taxonomic ranks
  • Alpha and beta taxonomies
  • Biological classification
  • Identification and description of new species
  • Classification of organisms according to a variety of criteria
  • Revisions
  • Synonyms
  • Biodiversity mapping and cataloging
  • Standardization of model organisms
  • Fossil forms
  • Biyogeography, modeling of organisms' current and future distributions
  • Molecular techniques
