MATA, Gerardo; SALMONES, Dulce  and  MEDEL, Rosario. Scientia Fungorum: a new journal with a long history. Rev. Mex. Mic [online]. 2017, vol.45, pp.1-3. ISSN 0187-3180.

Scientia Fungorum (SF) is a new mycological journal that recovers the history of the Revista Mexicana de Micología (RMM). The RMM was first published in 1968 as the Boletín de la Sociedad Mexicana de Micología, of which 20 volumes (1968-1984) were published. The RMM appeared in 1985 and, until December 2016, forty-four more volumes were published. Over 49 years, the RMM published 773 papers with the participation of 936 authors and more than 150 institutions from 27 countries. Among the topics covered are Biodiversity, Phytopathology, Mushroom Cultivation and Medical Mycology. Scientia Fungorum intends to redefine the approach and the scope of the journal, giving it a more universalist perspective, with an editorial concept and a Latin name that reaffirms the universal and integral nature of science. The journal aims to move quickly to electronic edition. From the second half of 2017, SF will use an electronic manager to streamline the editorial production process and the full content of its 49-year history will then be available as open access material. In this new phase, SF will be the heir that will give continuity to what is now the only specialized Mycology journal in Latin America.

Keywords : Revista Mexicana de Micología; Latin America; Mycology.
