"Undoubtedly, there is a growing need of an authoritative, cutting-edge technology journal in mycology to respond to the challenges of cybertaxonomy era and especially of the forthcoming semantic Web of linked data. The phenomenal success of ZooKeys in zoological systematics, and the excellent start of PhytoKeys in botany, on which experience MycoKeys builds upon, convinced a team of editors from leading mycological institutions to put efforts in establishing of a just new-generation mycology journal" adds Dr Thorsten Lumbsch, Editor-in-Chief of MycoKeys.
MycoKeys is published in four different formats: (1) high-resolution, full-color print version (2) PDF identical to the printed version; (3) HTML to provide links to external resources and semantic enhancements to published texts for interactive reading; (4) XML version compatible to PubMedCentral archiving and providing a machine-readable copy to facilitate future data mining. Neither restriction nor charges are imposed on the use of color illustrations.
MycoKeys will be presented at the International Botanical Congress (IBC2011, Booth No 21) in Melbourne (24-30 July 2011) and at all forthcoming international mycological congresses and conferences. Mycologists and lichenologists are welcome to submit manuscripts and discuss innovative publishing projects.
