Registering articles at Zoobank

Acta Protozoologica has been electronic-only journal since 2018. Therefore there is need for authors to observe the ICZN (2012) amendments. In particular, when articles include nomenclatural acts (such as describing a new species), it is necessary to register the work (not the name, although this is best practice) with ZooBank and to include the ZooBank registration number within the work itself (see Article 8.5.3; ICZN, 2012). Without this registration the name will not be valid.


ICZN = International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. 2012. Amendment of Articles 8, 9, 10, 21 and 78 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature to expand and refine methods of publication. Bull. Zool. https://zookeys.pensoft.net/articles.php?id=3096.
