BJZ is Diamond Open Access


It is our pleasure to announce that the Belgian Journal of Zoology is now a Diamond Open Access Journal. This means that all publication charges are now cancelled, both for authors and readers. As co-publishers, the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) and the Royal Belgian Zoological Society (RBZS) are thrilled that the Belgian Journal of Zoology has adopted this highest level of open access in the year in which we are also celebrating the 150th anniversary of the journal!

We are looking forward to receive new submissions via Manuscripts on all aspects of zoology are considered, including anatomy, behaviour, developmental biology, ecology, evolution, genetics, genomics and physiology. The Belgian Journal of Zoology also welcomes reviews, especially from complex or poorly understood research fields in zoology.

All issues can be found in the Web of Science and Scopus, and also here:

RBINS and RBSZ are strongly committed to promoting free publication and consultation of peer-reviewed scientific articles. In this context, the Belgian Journal of Zoology will also participate in the Peer Community Initiative (PCI). You will shortly receive additional information about the novel PCI Zoology that is currently being created.

Publication of the Belgian Journal of Zoology is supported by the National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS), the University Foundation and RBINS.
