News : ‘Note’ article type renamed to ‘Taxonomic Description’

25 May 2017

International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (IJSEM) is changing the name of the article type ‘Note’ to ‘Taxonomic Description’. The format of the article itself will remain the same, with authors still being encouraged to follow the format outlined by Kämpfer et al. (2003) where possible.

This change has been introduced for new submissions, effective immediately, while manuscripts that have already been submitted as a ‘Note’ will carry the new title from the publication of the June issue onwards.

The alteration is to more accurately reflect the role of this article type in IJSEM as the official journal of record for novel prokaryotic taxa.
