Dear Colleagues,

We are establishing a next generation platform for publishing biodiversity
science and data. The Biodiversity Data Journal (
http://www.pensoft.net/journals/bdj) is a comprehensive online platform
designed to accelerate publishing, dissemination and sharing of
biodiversity-related data of any kind. Contributions will be accepted on a
wide range of biodiversity subjects and will be published in association
with major data repositories (e.g. GBIF, Dryad, GenBank) using a number of
Biological Code-compliant templates. These templates make it easy to write
manuscripts, review text and share data.

In preparation for launching the journal we are seeking editorial
specialists with expertise in subjects and data types (e.g. taxon
treatments, checklists, genomic-, ecological- and environmental-datasets,
analytical methods and software) who can be involved in the innovative
reviewing process. Potential editors should be interested in new ideas,
methods and approaches to publishing, sharing and using biodiversity
information. Established specialists, post-doctoral researchers and PhD
students with relevant experience should not hesitate to apply using the
short form linked below:


Thanks for your time and apologies for cross-postings,
