Systematic Biology is the bimonthly journal of the Society of Systematic Biologists published by Oxford University Press. Papers for the journal are original contributions to the theory, principles, and methods of systematics as well as phylogeny, evolution, morphology, biogeography, paleontology, genetics, and the classification of all living things. A Points of View section offers a forum for discussion, while book reviews and announcements of general interest are also featured.

The Bulletin of the Society of Systematic Biologists
The Bulletin of the Society of Systematic Biologists launched in May of 2021 and will publish manuscripts that advance our understanding of the Earth's biodiversity, with a special focus on investigations that describe how species are related (i.e., phylogeny), identified (i.e., species delimitation or taxonomic practice) or have evolved (e.g., phylogeography, biogeography, or phylogenetic comparative methods). BSSB will also publish manuscripts that advance the theory or methods used in data analysis. Manuscripts will be evaluated on two criteria: the quality of the science and their contribution to our collective understanding of the focal species or clade. BSSB aims to publish investigations that utilize state of the art data analyses and high-quality data sets to achieve these goals.
Two issues are planned in 2021 for Volume 1 (July, December) and up to four issues will be included in Volume 2 the following year. Articles will be published without article processing charges (APCs) for SSB members.
