Since 2016 and up to end of 2017, a quarterly official KILLIFLASH newsletter (8 issues in total), titled Killi-Data News (K-D N), has been published that contains all output of research and evidence-based information available on killifish, published since preceding trimester, with a link to the official abstract of each publication plus a personal analysis (or members' comments) for each in order to highlight the findings and also the limits of the study, and also some anecdotal news on killifish and links to many videos ; it is arranged in at least 5 sections along the following themes, What is new on Killi-data.org, Announcements, Internet Review, Review of new research, New Books, Systematics & Taxonomy, Killifish Biology, Theses & Dissertations, Interesting research ; it is edited as a PDF format and is long of several dozens of pages. The executive editor is Dr Tyrone Genade (USA).

KILLI-DATA WASSUP

 

Since 2018, Killi-Data News (K-D N), has been replaced by a "light" newsletter to members, named Killi-Data Wassup informally and irregularly distributed that contains a selection of research output as a PDF, plus editorial and a view from the chair discussing major issues in applying research output into name-focused Killi-Data. 

Killi-Data Wassup is a new service of information to members as a follow-up of Killi-Data News.

  • It is rather in line with K-D informal letters sent to members back in 2004, and actually it is quite different from Killi-Data News:

    It does not aim to be comprehensive of whole Killifish research output (it presents only a subjective selection of articles, primarily those being coherent with Killi-Data focus on names, systematics and nomenclature)
  • It is not regular (it will be produced when time permits and when a significant number of articles is published, not too many articles so that the reading is short, not too few articles so that the service is real and not too frequent)
  • It separates clearly, the "selection of publications" with (1) a full neutral synthesis for each major publication, (2) a quick snapshot of contents for other publications, (3) the results of new collecting trips, AND, within a paragraph titled "View from the chair", personal, but impartial and balanced comments raised from some of those selected publications IN VIEW OF THE TRANSLATION OF THEIR RESULTS INTO Killi-Data, and not as opinions or judgments on the quality of those research papers
  • It mentions for each "selected publication" (listed as last-in first-out) the source and importantly a link to abstract online, but not the full reference (which is anyway online)
  • It does not contain each time an Editorial but it may also contain a “Guest Editorial” from key experts from time to time

Killi-Data Wassup is not a published document (there is no ISSN number).
Hence please note the following disclaimers and limited responsibility:

  • This publication is disclaimed for purposes of Zoological Nomenclature, in accordance with I.C.Z.N. code, 4th edition, articles 8.3 and 8.4.
  • No new names, or nomenclature changes are available from statements in this publication.
  • No systematic changes may be purported from statements in this publication.
  • No statements in this publication may be quoted in any other media without prior formal permission.
  • The section titled "View from the Chair" in this publication contains no criticism (and obviously no offense) whatsoever to authors by any means.
  • This publication only aims to disseminate the results of selected new research works and their analyses, as possible improvements of scientific knowledge on cyprinodontiformes fishes.

SPECIFICITIES OF KILLIFLASH, K-D W, AND K-D N

 

Each KILLIFLASH contains copyrighted documents that cannot be printed by third parties without permission and that cannot be published online.

.

By no means, attached comments/analyses are designed to purport critics to the publication or to the author(s) : Killifish are too difficult to study and researchers are too few to justify such criticsCommunity comments are also given by members (like for a blog) with the same spirit.
Killiflash, K-D W and K-D N are just tools to disseminate the new findings quickly and to stimulate even more new research works !

Each KILLIFLASH, K-D W and K-D N contains or links to copyrighted documents that cannot be printed without permission and that cannot be freely published online.
