The Code has very few rules on publication. It requires that the paper be in a certain languages and that it be published as hard copies in sufficient numbers to be readily found with a reasonable literature search. Nowhere is it required that a scientific paper be published in a scientific journal, never mind that it be reviewed by a jury of experts.... I am really surprised that a non peer-reviewed publication can be treated as an outlet for defining a species "scientifically"
That is correct. I occurs right now!... you know, one may easily start a journal somewhere and publish tens of articles and then describe tens of species?!...
