The entomological contributions by Australasian systematists over the last decade were analysed using Zootaxa as an example. Zootaxa was chosen because it is the largest journal in entomology/zoology. After a review of the growth and success of Zootaxa over the last ten years, the contributions from Australasian systematic entomologists were compared with those of other countries. Critical issues in disseminating entomological information in general (such as data archiving and financial stability) will be discussed.
