Nota Lepidopterologica goes advanced open access with Pensoft Publishers

The Societas Europaea Lepidopterologica has joined forces with Pensoft Publishers to bring the Society's journal Nota Lepidopterologica on the way to open access and innovation. The first issue of the journal published in Pensoft Publishers advanced open access format is now a fact.

The scope of Nota has not changed and it continues to publish contributions to the study of mainly but not exclusively Palaearctic Lepidoptera, including taxonomy, morphology and anatomy, phylogenetics, biogeography, ecology, behaviour, conservation, as well as other aspects of lepidopterology.

The new semantically enriched online format of the journal does, however, bring a great number of benefits and new features. One of the many improvements is that the waiting time from acceptance of a paper to publication will now be much shorter. Each paper will be published online within weeks of acceptance on the new Nota website

Nota Lepidopterologica is now an open access journal, which means that all published papers will be accessible to anyone in the world with an internet connection as soon as the paper is published. Pensoft's modern publishing tools include semantic markup of all manuscripts, registration of new taxa and nomenclatural acts in ZooBank, and linking of scientific names in papers to various biodiversity resources (e.g., GBIF, Encyclopedia of Life, etc.).

"Pensoft is well known as one of World's most innovative publishers focusing on all topics related to biodiversity. For years they have been revolutionizing publishing by integrating modern tools with traditional topics into high-quality products. We hope you will enjoy the new editorial system and outlook of Nota Lepidopterologica and we welcome you to the first issue of Nota published by Pensoft."comments the Editor-in-Chief of Nota Lepidopterologica Dr Jadranka Rota from the University of Turku, Finland.

In the new semantically enriched issue you can read about an unexpected discovery of Pyrgus malvoides in the Czech Republic, the revision of Naarda (Erebidae), a detailed examination of the Alpine populations of the butterfly Erebia euryale, an interesting new species of larentiine geometrids from the Kopet-Dagh Mountains, reduced mouth parts in coleophorids, the taxonomic status of two species of Ochromolopis (Epermeniidae), the description of the previously unknown female of Ethmia cribravia (Elachistidae), a remarkable new species of gelechiids from Turkmenistan, difficulties of identifying species of Melitaea based on their wing morphology, and about choreutids of Madeira.
