Wikispecies:Collaboration with ZooKeys and PhytoKeys
On July 6, 2009, Wikispecies launched a collaboration with ZooKeys. In late 2010, PhytoKeys also joined the collaboration. Both ZooKeys and PhytoKeys are under the same parent company, Pensoft Publishers. ZooKeys and PhytoKeys are peer-reviewed, open-access scientific journals. ZooKeys focuses on taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, and evolution of animals, while PhytoKeys focuses on systematic botany. Unlike most journals, ZooKeys and PhytoKeys' papers are available for download, printing, and distribution for free (in HTML, XML, and PDF format).
Starting from July 9, 2009, images of species described in ZooKeys will be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons for usage in Wikispecies. The images are copied or cropped from ZooKeys' papers, sometimes with minor touch-ups. All images derived from ZooKeys are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license (CC-BY 3.0). Once uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, the images will be placed under Category:Media from ZooKeys.
On November 1, 2010, PhytoKeys journal was launched. Similar to its sister journal, ZooKeys, images derived from PhytoKeys are also licensed under CC-BY 3.0. The images will be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons and placed under Category:Media from PhytoKeys
