The MVZ has an active publication program, with over 50 manuscripts being published annually by MVZ researchers. These include papers in peer-reviewed journals, monographs, book chapters, and books. All reprints are assigned a reprint number, which is used by Museum staff for tracking and distribution. Copies of reprints are stored as PDF files and as hard copies in an archive and the Museum’s library.
