Belgian Journal of Zoology

The Belgian Journal of Zoology is an open access journal publishing high-quality research papers in English that are original, of broad interest and hypothesis-driven. Manuscripts on all aspects of zoology are considered, including anatomy, behaviour, developmental biology, ecology, evolution, genetics, genomics and physiology. Manuscripts on veterinary topics are outside of the journal’s scope. The Belgian Journal of Zoology also welcomes reviews, especially from complex or poorly understood research fields in zoology. The Belgian Journal of Zoology does no longer publish purely taxonomic papers. Surveys and reports on novel or invasive animal species for Belgium are considered only if sufficient new biological or biogeographic information is included.

All published papers and short notes in the Belgian Journal of Zoology are made available through this journal website. All manuscripts (including short notes) are peer reviewed by at least two referees and should be sent electronically to the editorial office at bjz@naturalsciences.be. Please always check the Author Guidelines before submitting. The Belgian Journal of Zoology is published online only from 2017 onwards in one volume with 2 issues. A print-on-demand version can be purchased from the editorial office.

The archive of the Belgian Journal of Zoology is available from http://rbzs.myspecies.info/node/3
