Peer Review Process
All contributions will be checked first for suitablity. Unsuitable manuscripts will be returned to authors within a week so that they can submit to other journals such as Zootaxa/Phytotaxa. Manuscripts within the scope of Megataxa will be reviewed by at least two peers assigned by one of our editors. Reviewers are anynymous and they have the option to sign their reviews. Authors are encouraged to suggest potential reviewers.
