Biodiversity Data Journal (BDJ) is a community peer-reviewed, open-access, comprehensive online platform, designed to accelerate publishing, dissemination and sharing of biodiversity-related data of any kind. All structural elements of the articles – text, morphological descriptions, occurrences, data tables, etc. – will be treated and stored as DATA, in accordance with the Data Publishing Policies and Guidelines of Pensoft Publishers.
The journal will publish papers in biodiversity science containing taxonomic, floristic/faunistic, morphological, genomic, phylogenetic, ecological or environmental data on any taxon of any geological age from any part of the world with no lower or upper limit to manuscript size.

Note from FOSTER Editor: FOSTER recommends Data Journals that mandate that data is deposited in long-term data repositories, and persitent idetifiers issued (e.g. DOI). Jefferey Beall, Librairan at University of Colorado, maintains a widely cited credibility list of Open Access publishers at http://scholarlyoa.com/ . We recommend you verify the credibility of any peer-review journal that you are unfamiliar with, before you submit your publications. .
