the Brazilian Nematological Society (BNS) has recently deliberated to discontinue its journal "Nematologia Brasileira", and replace it with "Nematoda". This upcoming, on-line, golden open-access journal will publish reviews, scientific articles, letters and short communications on all areas of study on nematodes. The Editorial Board, composed of well-recognized scientists from several scientific institutions in the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia, has been completed and will soon be presented. The Editor-in-Chief of Nematoda, Dra. Claudia Dolinski (UENF, Brazil), is ultimating the visual identity of the journal and its future website, whose domain (nematoda.com.br) has been registered by the Society. Please find attached a PDF file where an official BNS statement including Nematoda`s goals, scope, management structure and the manuscripts´ work flow (processing and evaluation system) is presented. The BNS will soon announce the start of Nematoda and it welcomes scientists working on all aspects of nematodes to consider submitting their manuscripts.
With our best regards,
Ricardo M. Souza, President of the BNS
Claudia Dolinski, Editor-in-Chief of Nematoda
