[Taxacom] New genus name in title

>From dim memory, there were concerns, at least in the past, about the use of names in titles and abstracts resulting in them being published by abstracting services before the publication of the "official", intentional description, muddying the waters as to publication date etc.


These concerns may predate the 4th edition (which contains additional safeguards against inadvertent publication of a name) - not sure. Perhaps someone else can advise?


Cheers,


Wolfgang

After having looked at 10,000 descriptions of reptiles (literally!) I find it rather annoying that a lot of authors no not mention the name of the new species (or genus), neither in the title nor the abstract of their papers. How do we know what they are talking about if they don’t say it?

Journal editors and reviewers should be a bit stricter with this kind of stuff and make it mandatory that new names are actually mentioned in the title or at least the abstract.
