Instructions for Authors

Notulae algarum is an on-line only publication published by AlgaeBase and, as the title ("little notes of algae") suggests, is intended for brief notes of 1-5 pages, generally on nomenclatural and taxonomic matters that pertain to any aspects of algae. Papers will be published only in a PDF format that meets the requirements for effective publication of the International Code of Nomenclature immediately upon acceptance.

Submitted manuscripts should not be previously published or submitted elsewhere for publication.

All illustrated manuscripts should be accompanied by separate tiffs of the original illustrations in plate form with all lettering and other material in place.

Notulae algarum is intended to meet the requirements for effective publication to validate new names as prescribed in Article 29 of the International Code of Nomenclature, particularly as its requirements relate to on-line publication.

Editorial Policy

The Editor and, if necessary, a member or members of the Editorial Board will review each manuscript. Manuscripts should be prepared according to journal instructions; those that do not meet these may be returned for revision prior to review. Following the style of an appropriate manuscript that has already been published on-line is advised.
