The current composition of ICTV Arch Virol 145/7 (2000) Virology Division News VDN 1 2 M. A. Mayo and C. M. Fauquet Scottish Crop Research Institute, Invergowrie, Dundee, U.K. ILTAB/Danforth Plant Science Center, University of Missouri St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. Introduction The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) has existed since 1966 to regulate virus taxonomy and nomenclature so as to reflect the wishes and the needs of the virological community [2, 4]. In order to do this, Reports are published at intervals, usually of 4 or so years [1, 5, 6]. These Reports bring together the changes to taxonomy made during the years following the previous Report and represent definitive statements about virus taxonomy at that time. Taxonomic decisions are made at intervals between, as well as at, Virology Congresses. For some of these, discussion papers have appeared in the Virology Division News section (VDN) of Archives of Virology before decisions were made. Also, following ICTV decisions, summary papers and some background papers have been published in VDN so as to inform virologists of the changes made. It is the policy of ICTV to engage as many as possible of the virologists who use the results of taxonomic decisions in Archives of Virology Springer Journals
