GBIF and ZooKeys signed a Memorandum of Cooperation to facilitate discovery
and access to ‘primary biodiversity data’ simultaneously with scholarly
publication using GBIF’s infrastructure. ZooKeys calls upon its authors to
submit supporting primary biodiversity data together with their manuscript,
in conformance with GBIF promoted standards. ZooKeys will make the GBIF
‘Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT)’ available from its website. GBIF will
provide ZooKeys with standards for primary biodiversity data sharing and a
template, to be included in Zookeys’ ‘instructions for authors’.
