"The well-reputed and established journal Check List is the latest biodiversity-themed title to join scholarly publisher Pensoft's peer-reviewed and open access family. Its first issue in collaboration with Pensoft is now published on the journal's new website.
Check List is an online open access journal launched in 2005 in Brazil. It publishes distribution summaries, annotated lists of species and notes on the geographic distribution of all taxa. The journal stands for the idea that maintaining records of the range of a species is the very first step towards undertaking effective actions for its conservation. Furthermore, its team believes that publishing such data provides the baseline for biodiversity preservation as a whole."
