The date of the first issue of the serial Priamus was 1981, which is today an organ of the Cesa. The earliest date of the scientific activities, realized by Prof. Koçak was in 1966, and the first date of the preparation of the card system of the Cesa in 1968. Therefore, the date 1966 may be considered as the date of foundation of the Cesa. Faunal activities of the Cesa between 1966-2019 in the Old World: Turkey, Balkan States, Spain, Iran, Kazachstan, Kirgizistan, Uighur Ili, Pakistan, Philippine Islands, Ethiopia, South Africa, and Thailand. Among the foreign institutions and the Cesa, scientific collaborations had been established in the past. Within this frame, scientific publications have been exchanged especially in the period of 1981-2013. 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.

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.
