Springer and the Senckenberg Gesellschaft fuer Naturforschung will collaborate on the publication of two scientific journals starting in March 2009. Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments and Marine Biodiversity, both quarterly journals, will receive maximum exposure through Springer's abstracting and indexing services and innovative product development initiatives and will be published in both electronic and print versions.
Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments is an international journal providing a multidisciplinary approach to the fields of palaeobiodiversity, palaeoenvironments and palaeobiogeography. Reporting on the causes and processes of changes in plant and animal life in earth's history, the journal publishes original research, review papers and short notes. Dr. Peter Knigshof of the Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum in Frankfurt, Germany, is the editor.
Devoted to all aspects of biodiversity research in marine ecosystems, Marine Biodiversity presents original research papers, short notes and reviews. The scope of the journal covers research at gene, species and ecosystems levels, and the patterns and understanding of the processes responsible for the regulation and maintenance of diversity in marine systems. Dr. Pedro Martnez Arbizu of the Senckenberg Research Institute at the German Center for Marine Biodiversity Research in Wilhelmshaven is the editor. Executive Editor of the society is Dr. Volker Mosbrugger, Senckenberg's General Director.
Dr. Dieter Czeschlik, Editorial Director for Life Sciences at Springer, said, "We are proud that the Senckenberg Gesellschaft fuer Naturforschung has entrusted Springer with the publication of these two prestigious journals that have been serving the scientific community for several decades. Now that the journals are also available in full electronic format on SpringerLink, they will both gain improved visibility. Biologists and geologists all over the world will appreciate receiving the electronic articles only two to three weeks after they have been accepted for publication."
