The hazards of dealing with exclusively online journals .... which Zootaxa effectively is....Another reason why hard copy can and will remain the preferred means of publication under the code for a while yet.

> I couldn't help but notice to my amusement that Zootaxa (online) appears to be missing an issue!
> 
> On the list of works published there in 2005: http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/list/list2005.html
> 
> The list includes issues: 971, 970, 969,      967, 966...   but no issue 968
> 
> I cross-referenced with Web of Knowledge and found that issue 968 does actually exist(!):
> 
> A new species of the genus Odonteus (Coleoptera : Geotrupidae) from northern Pakistan
> Author(s): Carpaneto, GM; Mignani, R
> Source: ZOOTAXA  Issue: 968   Pages: 1-10   Published: MAY 6 2005

> May I suggest that Zootaxa makes this paper Open Access once it is found and made discoverable again, to compensate the poor authors who've had their article made less discoverable for ?who knows? how long.
> 
> I see it's listed in the 'by author' webpage: http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/byauthor/c.html
>  & 'Coleoptera' web page: http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/taxa/Coleoptera.html
> but it can't be guaranteed that people will find it via these routes. It wasn't included in some literature evaluation I did a few weeks ago because of this error.

> The sooner Zootaxa fully migrates all it's content to the OJS platform (http://biotaxa.org/zootaxa) the better I think...
