MALACOLOGIA publishes original research on the Mollusca that is of high quality and of broad international interest. Papers combining synthesis with innovation are particularly desired. Although publishing symposia from time to time, MALACOLOGIA encourages submission of single manuscripts on diverse topics, including systematics, ecology, population ecology, genetics, molecular genetics, evolution, and phylogenetic treatments. MALACOLOGIA specializes in publishing long paper and monographs. Smaller papers of local geographical or systematic content, and of high quality and broad interest, may be accepted as “Research Notes.” Nearly all branches of malacology are represented in the pages of MALACOLOGIA.
