CETAF PUBLICATIONS

CETAF is an organisation with a European and International outlook. It focuses on the dissemination of infomation on natural history collections and scientific research and, via its members, on the promotion of taxonomy, systematics and collections based research via scientific publishing.  CETAF supports the European Journal of Taxonomy, its flagship scientific, open-access journal. CETAF also focuses on publishing Policy and Position Papers that investigate the role of Natural History Collections and associated research in shaping and contributing to today's society.

CETAF POLICY & POSITION PAPERS

CETAF Policy and Position Papers aim at bridging the gap between scientific research, scientific policy and societal challenges.

EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF TAXONOMY

EJT is a scientific journal focusing on descriptive taxonomy. It encompasses the fields of zoology, entomology, botany and palaeontology, and is of global scope, both in terms of its authorship and its geographical coverage.

EJT is an international Open Access, peer-reviewed, and fully electronic journal. Its articles are original and adhere to high scientific and technical standards as the impact factor of 0.649 for 2016 shows.

EJT was established within the European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy (EDIT) and was integrated into CETAF in 2011. The journal is currently run by 9 CETAF member institutions from Belgium, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK.
