European Journal of Taxonomy (EJT), partly financed by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS), is proud to announce the publication of its 100th issue. 

European Journal of Taxonomy (EJT) is a peer-reviewed international journal on descriptive taxonomy. Its content is fully electronic and available in Open Access. EJT is the only taxonomic journal that collectively covers zoology and plant-related sciences, including fossils.

The journal is published and funded by a consortium of European natural history institutions, namely the museums of Paris (France), Copenhagen (Denmark), London (UK) and in Belgium by our Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences,  The Royal Museum of Central Africa and the Botanical Garden Meise.

EJT is unique in its field as it is a diamond open access journal, where all content is freely available to all interested, but neither readers, nor authors have to pay. For commercially owned journals, authors have to pay a (sometimes very stiff) fee to have their papers published in open access. In EJT, the natural history institutions that make up the EJT consortium produce EJT and do not ask fees. 

EJT was launched in September 2011 and has meanwhile published about 3 500 pages in which more than 400 new species, genera and higher taxa have been described. 

Now, the journal has published its 100th issue, comprising a beautifully illustrated monograph on African millipedes, adding 20 new species to our list of new taxa. 

EJT is normally an e-only journal, but on this occasion has printed a limited number of hard copies of this monograph, to be distributed amongst the natural history institutions of the world. 

You can access all 100 issues of EJT at: www.europeanjournaloftaxonomy.eu
