Topical collection "Guides to Australian Annelida"

Submission deadline: 01 January 2024

Topical collection editors

Wilson, Glasby, Kupriyanova, Hutchings

Topical collection information

Guides to Australian Annelida aims to make the biodiversity data on Australian annelid fauna more widely accessible through keys and identification guides.  Specialist taxonomic literature is difficult to access and to use, especially by non-taxonomists. This topical collection will provide a resource to facilitate identification of the phylum Annelida, at various taxonomic levels. Guides will assemble keys, reviews and other identification resources catering for the non-specialist, with an initial focus on the marine annelid (‘polychaete’) families – in particular, four families that encompass some of the most ecologically important and most frequently encountered species, and about 30% of all polychaete genera: Nereididae, Polynoidae, Serpulidae and Terebellidae.


Guides to Australian Annelida is the outcome of a 4-year research project collaboration between three Australian Museums (Australian Museum, Museum Victoria, Museum & Art Gallery Northern Territory), supported by a grant from the Australian Biological Resources Study, Canberra.

Topical collection "Biology of Pangolins and Bats"

Permanent collection

Topical collection information

ZooKeys invites research publications on the biology of bats and pangolins with the aim to shed light on the factors that make certain organisms like bats and pangolins particularly efficient vectors of diseases capable of causing global emergencies and irreversible damages, such as COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The APCs for this upcoming collection will be waived.

By means of Open Science, ZooKeys aims to contribute with real-time findings and data to the efforts of scientific teams, experts and other decision-makers across the globe, in order to advance the world’s understanding of the transmission pathways and potential vectors of zoonotic diseases. By adding further knowledge to the key factors that pave the way for global public health emergencies, such quality research publications are to ultimately help the mitigation and prevention of similar devastating events in the future.
