The Middle East at its location at the intersection of three zoogeographic regions endows a vast landscape with a striking diversity of habitats and fauna and flora with many endemic species. Zoology in the Middle East is the only scientific journal covering the whole range of zoology in this unique region of the world and helps further the understanding of the Middle East as a zoogeographical unit. The journal aims at improving the interchange of knowledge and ideas between specialists on different subjects and taxa.
Zoology in the Middle East publishes original papers on ecology, zoogeography, animal biology, biodiversity, faunistics, systematics, and taxonomy of the Middle East. Far over 1000 authors from more than 65 countries (see list here) have published their scientific results in Zoology in the Middle East. The journal is thus a unique information source on Middle East wildlife; the first 63 volumes and three Special Issues comprise over 9,000 printed pages. 1257 articles have been published so far (see Table of Contents for all volumes).
Zoology in the Middle East has found place in the elite Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), which comprises a selection of the world's leading scholarly science and technical journals from more than 150 disciplines, and forms the basis for calculating the impact factor (IP). It is a refereed journal with an Advisory Board whose members come from twelve different countries.
Starting with Volumer 59, 2013, Zoology in the Middle East is published by the publisher Taylor & Francis. The editorial office remained unchanged. Please visit the journal’s new web site at http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/tzme20/current#.UZ8Mkp3wCig. The current web site will be maintained for some time.
