Freeing millions of facts from 1 million treatments from the published record

Plazi is an association supporting and promoting the development and service of persistent and openly accessible digital taxonomic literature. To this end Plazi will:

  • Maintain a digital taxonomic literature repository to enable archiving, accessing and disseminating of taxonomic treatments and included data.
  • Enhance submitted taxonomic treatments by creating TaxonX and Taxpub XML versions.
  • Participate in the development of new models for publishing taxonomic treatments in order to maximize interoperability with other relevant cyberinfrastructure components (e.g., name servers, biodiversity resources, etc...)
  • Advocate and educate about the vital importance of maintaining free and open access to scientific discourse and data.
