Our Journals

The Linnean Society of London publishes peer-reviewed scientific journals in biology, botany, zoology and evolutionary study.

New Journal Announcement: The Linnean Society of London has now added the Evolutionary Journal of the Linnean Society to our list of titles with our publisher Oxford University Press. This open-access publication aims to encourage papers that integrate across data sets, looking not just at different organisms, but the interactions between them, at different scales. We are especially keen to receive papers that use new approaches in research, like high-throughput DNA sequencing or the latest advances in imaging.

The submissions site is now open. For details, click on the Evolutionary Journal of the Linnean Society link below, and watch the video to learn more from Editor Dr Steven Dodsworth.

The Society's journals (Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, Evolutionary Journal of the Linnean Society, and Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society) cover original scientific papers and studies, and are published on the Society's behalf by Oxford University Press (OUP). OUP is a department of the University of Oxford and furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. Tables of contents and article abstracts are available for all to browse online via the Oxford Academic platform.

Free or heavily discounted subscriptions to the journals are available through initiatives including INASP, EIFL, and Research4Life, as well as OUP’s Developing Countries Offer.
