Thanks for the journal listing... It's good to see them all in one place.

As co-editor of the Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science, I 
would suggest you consider including a link to it as a multidisiplinary 
journal at some point...

The TKAS has been around since 1872... Published twice a year, our 
papers are peer-reviewed.... and available on Bio-One... JSTOR has them 
all the way back to 1872.

Although our "impact factor" is certainly low compared to the major 
journals, we have been accepting quite a few paleontology papers (mostly 
Midwestern United States). It is certainly a good place for students to 
get a first paper reviewed and published.
