Founded in 1878, the Zoological Society of Japan is known to be one of the oldest and successful academic societies in Japan, and has supported scientific activities across a wide-range fields of areas associated with basic zoology. The Zoological Society of Japan is an academic society aimed at the advance and dissemination of animal scientific research. Members, starting with researchers and graduate students affiliated with universities and research institutes, consist of teaching staff at elementary, middle and high schools, and the number of members has reached 2,700.

Aims and scope

Zoological Letters is an open access journal that publishes new and important findings in the zoological sciences. As a sister journal to Zoological Science, Zoological Letters covers a wide range of basic fields of zoology, from taxonomy to bioinformatics. We also welcome submissions of paleontology reports as part of our effort to contribute to the development of new perspectives in evolutionary zoology. Our goal is to serve as a global publishing forum for fundamental researchers in all fields of zoology.
