Natura Nascosta is the journal of the Museo Paleontologico Cittadino of
Monfalcone (Italy) and is issued every 6 months. You can download it as pdf
file from the website of the Museum. For free :)
ISI probably does not list it because it is not in the ISI Citation index,
as also most of the European journals of paleontology (Oryctos, Gortania,
Bollettino della Società Paleontologica Italiana, Senckembergiana Lethaea,
We abbreviate the name Natura Nascosta as Nat. Nas., but I do not know if
this does follow the standard rules for abbreviation.
