The Middle East at its location at the intersection of three zoogeographic regions endows a vast landscape with a striking diversity of habitats and fauna and flora with many endemic species. Zoology in the Middle East is the only scientific journal covering the whole range of zoology in this unique region of the world and helps further the understanding of the Middle East as a zoogeographical unit. The journal aims at improving the interchange of knowledge and ideas between specialists on different subjects and taxa.
Zoology in the Middle East publishes original papers on ecology, zoogeography, animal biology, biodiversity, faunistics, systematics, and taxonomy of the Middle East. Single issues of the journal may be dedicated to certain topics, animal groups or regions. 968 authors from 55 countries (click here for list) have published their scientific results in Zoology in the Middle East. The journal is thus a unique information source on Middle East wildlife; the first 53 volumes and three Special Issues comprise over 7000 printed pages. The presence of the journal in the internet is continuously growing and a Google Internet Search on Zoology in the Middle East gives currently (July 2011) almost 271,000 results, which shows that the journal ranks very high compared with similar journals.
Zoology in the Middle East has found place in the elite Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), which comprises a selection of the world's leading scholarly science and technical journals from more than 150 disciplines, and forms the basis for calculating the impact factor (IP). It is a refereed journal with an Advisory Board whose members come from twelve different countries.
