IAPT Publications


The journal of the IAPT


TAXON is the leading international journal devoted to systematics, phylogeny and taxonomy of algae, fungi, and plants. It also accepts papers on methodology, botanical history, biography, bibliography and related subjects, accepts opinion pieces, commentaries and new perspectives, and publishes a number of regular columns including Plant Systematics World.

TAXON invites especially reviews focusing on the importance of taxonomy and systematics for other fields of biology and beyond, and will support this with an honorarium via the Vicki Funk Invited Review Series.

Under the rules of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi and plants, proposals to amend the Code (except those that apply solely to fungi), and most other nomenclatural proposals, must be published in TAXON.

TAXON is published online-only by Wiley.


Premium, Life and Institutional members of IAPT receive print copies of TAXON. These members must advise the IAPT office ( if you do not receive your copy of TAXON within three months of publication (issues are published in February, April, June, August, October, and December).

Claims must be sent to the IAPT office, not directly to Wiley.


Our policy is to replace missing or damaged copies within our reasonable discretion, subject to print issue availability.
