Dear All,

The North Carolina State University Herbarium (NCSC) is pleased to announce the release of a new online botanical publication - Vulpia (ISSN 1540-3599) - named in honor of the late Dr. William Basil Fox (1915-1952), first curator of NCSC.

Not wishing to duplicate existing journal coverage, Vulpia seeks primarily to provide useful scientific information often not published in existing journals for lack of resources or space - such as botanical keys to native and cultivated plants (in support of teaching and field work), detailed nomenclatural notes, discussions of synonymy and typification, floristic notes, and lengthy exsiccatae.

To facilitate cost-effective and broad-distribution, the publication is made available online in the Adobe portable document format (pdf).  Archival hardcopies and electronic media will be deposited at the library of North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC).

All manuscripts will be reviewed by an editorial board.  Contributors need not be associated with North Carolina State University.  There are no page charges for authors.

Subscriptions are also free for the time being and will be managed through a list-serve.  Persons subscribing to the publication will receive notification of new papers as they are released and a complete table of contents of the year's volume at the end of the calendar year.

Volume 1 and subscription information can be found at: http://www.vulpia.ncsu.edu
