An opinion piece newly published in Systematic Entomology addresses recent discussion of the taxonomic validity of names appearing in Early View (that is, new names published electronically, prior to appearance in a journal issue). Two previous editors of the journal, Wiley's Publishing Manager and the  taxonomic editor of Austral Entomology combine to argue that Early View constitutes valid publication. Eighteen senior systematists, the current editors, the former Executive Secretary, International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature and the former Publishing Manager of Wiley journals endorse the opinion.
