Amendment of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature
The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature proposes the following amendment of the fourth edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (hereafter "the Code"), to allow electronic publishing coupled with archiving of works and registration of new scientific names. In addition to electronic publication, the proposal perforce addresses methods of publication in general. It is followed by an explanation of the procedure for amendment and adoption, and discussion of the reasoning behind the proposal. Comments from the community of zoologists are sought, whether to oppose, support, or suggest improvements and alternatives for the various parts of this proposal. Full text of the proposed amendment
Everyone is kindly invited to make reprints available through the Downloads section at Diptera.info. Any reprint that is available on the internet can be added to the Downloads section, as long as the link is permanent. If so desired, I am willing to host reprints in electronic format (preferably as PDF's) on the Diptera.info server and include the links in the Downloads section. This may be of interest to dipterists who do not have any webspace available to host their own reprints.
Please, use the site's contact email to send any (links to) reprints you would like to have included.
I have the possibility to scan printed versions and created searchable pdf's but this is time consuming and creates rather large files when the number of pages increases. You can also contact me about converting such reprints to pdf.
