Recently a number of queries were received about the ways in which requests for validation of names of taxa effectively published in journals other than the IJSEM are approved or denied and about the criteria used by the List Editors of the journal when deciding whether or not a validation request can be approved. As this process may be unclear to some authors of proposals, we would like to clarify the nature of the validation process and the role of the List Editors.
