Between these dates especially printed issues of Priamus and Miscellaneous Papers have been exchanged (see below).

Currently, all the scientific serials published online as pdf format, in accordance with the publication rules online of the ICZN.

Place of the online Cesa publications: After registering to the Zoobank, the MS is submitted as pdf file to the Internet Archive as required (California, USA). In the internet archive,  the submitted MS is examined and prepared in a publication format. After this procedure, the MS becomes a valid publication in accordance with the Rules of ICZN. In conclusion, the manuscript of the Cesa becomes valid publication in the Internet Archive (California). Thus, the place of the Cesa online publications is California, USA, not Turkey.
