Aims and Scope

The aims of the Bulletin of Entomological Research are to further our global knowledge of entomology. The Bulletin publishes high quality and original research papers, 'critiques', review articles and short communications concerning insects, mites, ticks or other arthropods of economic importance in agriculture, forestry, stored products, biological control, medicine, animal health and natural resource management.  The scope of papers addresses the biology, ecology, behaviour, physiology and systematics of individuals and populations.  This includes the interactions between species (plants, hosts for parasites, natural enemies and whole communities), novel methodological developments, including molecular biology, in an applied context. Papers should aim to generalise research findings into a wider entomological context rather than provide more entomological 'exceptions'. The Bulletin does not publish the results of spray trials.

The Bulletin of Entomological Research is published bimonthly by CABI Publishing, a division of CAB International.
