About this book
This jubilee issue of ZooKeys, "Taxonomy shifts up a gear: New publishing tools to accelerate biodiversity research", is entirely devoted to semantic markup of taxonomic literature and its implementation for semantic enhancements of published texts and their importance for increased convenience in reading, archiving, future data mining and reuse. Several novelties are described in the two forum papers and demonstrated in four exemplar papers.
