About the Site

The Belgian Journal of Zoology publishes original papers on zoology.

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. Submissions on veterinary or medicinal science are out of scope and will be rejected. 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. It 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.

We offer golden open-access at a reasonable price (see instructions for authors) and if required, fast-track, high quality reviewing.
