For all those who are taxonomists and want to help to disseminate 
taxonomic information:

New opportunity to PUBLISH TAXONOMY ONLINE! To 
disseminate taxonomic information world-wide, especially for 
countries/institutes with poor libraries, publication via the internet is
the ideal medium. Taxonomic information is needed everywhere, 
and we hope
that in future much of it will be available in any place of this planet
wherever a PC is connected to the internet. To achieve this goal  a 
journal was founded that uses a normal peer-review system but 
both electronically and on paper. Organisms, Diversity and 
Evolution is
published by the Gesellschaft für Biologische Systematik (GfBS) 
for Systematic Biology) and the Urban & Fischer Verlag. The        
Journal consists of a printed version and an electronic supplement. 
It is
devoted to the understanding of organismal diversity and addresses 
international audience. Purely taxonomic papers are  published in 
electronic supplement by GfBS. Extended abstracts of these 
will be contained in the printed         Journal. The electronic
supplement will be available free of charge on the internet 
independent of
the printed Journal to everybody interested. Examples: see

To fulfill the rules of taxonomic nomenclature (botany/ zoology) 
diagnoses appear in the printed version and CDs are deposited in 
major libraries. Furthermore, a German institute responsible for the
conservation of electronic data  (Deusche Bibliothek, Frankfurt) will 
care of the electronic version to keep the format of stored 
information up
to date.
