Royal Society of New Zealand and Taylor & Francis co-publishing 
partnership, 2010

Taylor & Francis is delighted to announce a co-publishing 
partnership with the Royal Society of New Zealand for its eight 
journals starting in 2010. The RSNZ journals include over three 
hundred volume years of top science content covering New Zealand 
research specialities such as the geosciences, botany, 
agriculture, marine science and zoology, with particular emphasis 
in the territories of New Zealand, Antarctica, the Antipodes and 
the Pacific Rim. The Royal Society of New Zealand's flagship 
social science journal Kotuitui balances these debates by 
providing a home for a wide range of social science discussions 
with the additional intention of displaying the links between the 
social and physical sciences.

Taylor & Francis's Melbourne office will provide local production 
and editorial liaison while the company's international marketing 
networks will ensure the journals are given tactical, tailor-made 
marketing to ensure their authors receive the greatest possible 
exposure for the unique content that the collection contains.

The journals will move to Taylor & Francis's InformaWorld 
platform, where they will benefit from HTML versions of articles, 
forward citation linking and advanced publication of articles 
online through iFirst. ScholarOne Manuscripts online submission 
and review will also be established, making peer review more 
efficient and maximizing outreach to international authors. Back 
issues of the journals will be digitized and made available to 
subscribers online.

Dr Di McCarthy, Chief Executive, Royal Society of New Zealand 
said 'We are very excited by this partnership, and the 
opportunities it offers for the journals. Our authors, editors, 
referees, and readers should all benefit from the proposed new 
initiatives, and we look forward to working with Taylor & Francis 
in the coming years.'

Dr David Green, Global Journals Publishing Director at Taylor & 
Francis, added: "This group of highly ranked titles is one of the 
major journal lists in Asia-Pacific, and we are delighted that 
the RSNZ has selected Taylor & Francis as their publishing 
partner of choice.  Our innovative strategies to drive global 
usage, citations and impact will bring major benefits to the 
dissemination of New Zealand science."
