ZooKeys in PubMed Central

ZooKeys has been accepted for archival and display in PubMed Central, the world's leading archive for biomedical literature, based at the National Library of MedicineZooKeys articles in PubMed Central are here:

ZooKeys becomes the first journal in biodiversity science to use a domain-specific extension, TaxPub, of the general NLM mark up schema that permits automatic extraction and retrieval of specific information on biological taxa, such as taxon treatments and their features from an article’s text.  Managing director Dr. Lyubomir Penev, Managing director of Pensoft Publishers, credits Donat Agosti and the team of Plazi with the inspiration for this accomplishment.

The experience accumulated by ZooKeys with TaxPub paves the way for other taxonomic journals to make biodiversity information openly accessible and easy to use.
