A few years ago, I was editor of Crossosoma, the journal of Southern
California Botanists. It had a circulation of around 350 (optimistically),
and was peer-reviewed after a fashion. In the instructions to contributors,
I stated "Because of the small circulation of Crossosoma, it is currently
the policy of the editor to return manuscripts that make formal
nomenclatural changes."
