Dear Aida, Geoff, Igor, Ken and colleagues,

These might be interesting to try because there is no polychaete taxonomy j=

Dear Igor,

I was thinking more of a dedicated journal for Annelids, similar to the Jou=
rnal of Molluscan Studies of the Malacological Society of London, but publi=
shing open access and free of charge. I don=92t think a journal like that e=
xists, but please correct me if it does.

In any case, thank you very much for pointing out those journals, I actuall=
y did not know some of them existed. This was another suggestion that I thi=
nk could be helpful, coming up with a list of open access journals that don=
=92t charge publication fees. Although I would probably not include Zootaxa=
 as authors are *strongly encouraged* to pay a fee to grant free online acc=

Anyways, regarding publishing OA, I agree with Eduardo that the best option=
 to make our work accessible to everyone seems to be posting preprints in b=
ioRxiv and servers alike.

All the best,
