Dear Authors and Readers,

We would like to announce changes to be introduced in 2013. Full information is available in the Editorial Note
    1. The journal is continued under the title: Acta zoologica cracoviensia (with no separate series).
    2. To accelerate the rate of publication of new taxa, from 2013 on the papers will be published in PDF online as soon as they are processed. Estimated time of this stage is 1 month after final acceptance of the corrected proof.
    3. According to the recommendations of ICZN and leading journals, as Zootaxa, the original descriptions of taxa should be cited in full in the References.
    We hope these changes will make the publication in our journal more effective and friendly.

    The journal is financially supported by Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education under the "Index Plus" programme.
