Metamorphosis - Objectives

 Metamorphosis The objectives of Metamorphosis are:

  1. To encourage scientific research into African Lepidoptera.
  2. To increase the visibility of the Lepidopterists’ Society of Africa and our journal to the world Scientific and Conservation communities.
  3. To have a dedicated Metamorphosis website with specialised functionality for accessing archives and submission/ review of articles by authors and reviewers.
  4. To make the Metamorphosis website Open Access, and to make all previously published as well as current Metamorphosis articles available to non LepSoc members as PDFs.
  5. To remove the restrictions on content by having no limit on the amount of coloured illustrations.
  6. To eliminate LepSoc members having to pay page or article fees, unlike most other Open Access journals.
  7. To expand the quantity and quality of the Metamorphosis scientific peer reviewers.
  8. To continuously improve the quality of the published articles and the scientific standing of Metamorphosis.
  9. To publish online whenever an article has been accepted and not have to wait to fill a full issue which delayed printed publishing.
  10. To encourage authors new to scientific publishing by providing mentors where needed to develop author skills.
  11. To achieve and entrench the Society’s position as the primary source of information on African Lepidoptera.
  12. To make the encyclopaedia "Afrotropical Butterflies" freely available on the Metamorphosis website.
  13. To separately produce an annual printed version of Metamorphosis including all articles published for the calendar year, only available to Sponsor, Honorary Life and Subscriber Members of LepSoc.
