Dear colleagues,


The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (LACM) is
re-invigorating its scientific publication, Contributions in Science,
and invites new submissions. Beginning in 1957, a total of 519
contributions have been published in this series and 41 longer
monographs in the LACM Science Series. Contributions in Science is fully
reviewed, with each manuscript examined by the internal scholarly
publications committee and 2 external peer reviewers. Copies of each
published paper are sent to some 500 museums and universities around the
world. Formerly, publication in this series was restricted to LACM staff
and associates but we are now accepting manuscripts from outside authors
as well.


Subject emphasis is on systematics and taxonomy of both extant and
extinct organisms. Accepted manuscripts are published free of page
charges. Contributions in Science is an open-access scientific journal
and full online versions of papers are posted immediately on the LACM
Web site after publication by Allen Press. Every December, printed
versions, of all papers accepted throughout the calendar year, will be
published together in a large annual bound issue. Authors receive a free
PDF file and 25 free printed copies. Longer papers may be considered and
accepted for the LACM Science Series, but authors will be asked to
support at least some of the publication costs.


For submission guidelines and instructions for authors, visit the
Scholarly Publication's Web site at
