  • Fungal Diversity Reviewer Panel

    Fungal Diversity especially encourages young researchers to join our recently established Reviewer Panel.


    In addition to the standard database of reviewers, Fungal Diversity has a Reviewer Panel made up of researchers in mycology, who are at an early stage of their career and wish to gain experience in reviewing.

    Editors of the journal will match each reviewer’s chosen areas of expertise to the respective manuscript. Members of the Reviewer Panel are asked to prioritize invitations to review for Fungal Diversity.

    How to join


    We are always happy to consider new applications, particular from early career researchers. To apply to join the panel please contact the managing editor of the journal, J.K. Liu, School of Life Science and Technology, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, P.R. China. ljiankui@gmail.com


  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
