The Egyptian Journal of Natural History publishes taxonomic and faunistic studies, or field-based research involving the natural history of the Egyptian fauna and flora. Both short and long papers are welcomed. We particularly encourage studies on Sinai.View the Instructions for authors All papers are reviewed by at least one or two Egyptian referees, and then by international referees. The referee/s are chosen by the editors. The language of publication is English. Summaries are given in English and Arabic, and may also be given in other languages. In case of non-Arab authors, the editors will prepare the Arabic summary.

The Egyptian Journal of Natural History is now closed to all new submissions

After 16 years, we the Editors-in-Chief (Samy Zalat & Francis Gilbert) have decided to stop, and effectively this means that the journals will cease active publication. We believe passionately in free access for both authors and readers, and this has always been underpinned by our own efforts in our 'spare time'. We set the journal up to encourage young scientists from Egypt and other developing countries in publishing about their fauna and flora. Our aim was always to get an Impact Factor for the main journal, the Egyptian Journal of Biology, but now under the current rules we would have to double our output of papers per issue. This would involve an unacceptable level of time and effort without paid help, which can only come from author charges. Thus reluctantly we have decided that the best course of action is to stop publication of both journals. We thank all authors who have trusted us with their papers, and all reviewers who have devoted their time to help safeguard the journals' standards.

Volume 6 was therefore the last.
