Dear fellow members of IAPT and Taxon readers,
We are sure you have noticed that Taxon is behind schedule in publishing this year. Moving to a new publisher is almost always disruptive and results in temporary delays in the publication schedule, and this has definitely been the case for us. The problems have primarily been with the typesetter used by Wiley. Our Production Editor, Franz, has been working hard to get them to adhere to our high standards for quality and accuracy. We are confident that the problems are well on the way to being resolved and that we will return to on-time publication before the end of the year. We appreciate the hard work by Franz and our managing editor Levent in this transition, as well as the patience of IAPT members and Taxon authors and readers. In case the delay is causing unnecessary problems (e.g. for grant proposals or for job applications) please let us know and we will help you.
Issue #2 for this year was recently published online and print copies will be in the mail soon. IAPT members can access Taxon through the IAPT website. If you have not yet registered as a user of the IAPT website we repeat below the instructions that were sent to all IAPT members early this year. Much of Taxon’s content is now published online ahead of completion of the journal issue and anyone (members and non-members) can sign up to receive alerts when new content is available online (go to the journal page on the Wiley site [https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/19968175] and select “Get Content Alerts” on the right side of the page.
With best wishes,
Dirk Albach, Editor in Chief
Patrick Herendeen, IAPT President
