ZooBank registration

Taylor & Francis supports the work of ZooBank, the Official Register of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN). ZooBank provides an authoritative online, open-access, community-generated registry for zoological nomenclature, as a service to taxonomists, biologists, and the global biodiversity informatics community.

If you are authoring a zoological article that includes a nomenclatural act governed by the ICZN Code, you will usually be asked, upon entry of that article into production, to register publication of the article with ZooBank, and to include the DOI (digital object identifier) provided. Details of how to do this can be found on the ZooBank website. Works issued and distributed electronically must be registered with ZooBank to be considered published. Registration of new names in ZooBank is optional, but strongly encouraged. ZooBank will provide an LSID (life sciences identifier), which should be inserted into your article at proof correction stage. You will also be asked to alert ZooBank when your article has published.
