Plazi Association

Plazi is an association supporting and promoting the development of persistent and openly accessible digital taxonomic literature. To this end Plazi will:

* Maintain a digital taxonomic literature repository to enable archiving of taxonomic treatments.

* Enhance submitted taxonomic treatments by creating TaxonX and Taxpub XML versions.

* Participate in the development of new models for publishing taxonomic treatments in order to maximize interoperability with other relevant cyberinfrastructure components (e.g., name servers, biodiversity resources, etc...)

* Advocate and educate about the vital importance of maintaining free and open access to scientific discourse and data.
