Mycotaxon is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal exclusively devoted to all phases of the taxonomy and nomenclature of fungi (including lichens). All articles are peer-reviewed by specialists prior to acceptance. Publication is open to all persons. Papers must be in English, with abstracts also in a foreign language if desired. Authors prepare their own copy after having received critical comments from pre-submission reviewers following our Instructions to Authors.
The journal was founded by Co-Editors Gregoire L. Hennebert and Richard P. Korf in 1974. You can view the current people serving as our journal editors and administrators on our website, www.mycotaxon.com. We indicate their specific functions and also provide a list of Emeritus Editors and Administrators as a historical background. There is in addition a distinguished group of mycologists who have volunteered to serve in making recommendations to ensure a bright future for the journal, our Editorial Advisory Board, also listed on the website. We note there the several functions of that Board, its current membership, and its Emeritus members.
