The Journal of Entomological Science (JES), published quarterly by the Georgia Entomological Society, invites submission of manuscripts reporting original research with insects and related arthropods or literature reviews offering foundations to innovative directions in entomological research.

Submission and Review.  Three (3) copies of all manuscripts to be submitted for consideration for publication in JES should be sent to Wayne Gardner, Editor, Journal of Entomological Science, 1109 Experiment Street, UGA Griffin Campus, Griffin, GA 30223-1797 USAManuscripts judged as suitable for JES will be peer reviewed by scientists qualified to assess the scientific merit of the content.  The Editor has the final decision in the acceptance, rejection, or revision of submitted/reviewed manuscripts.

Publication Charges.  Authors will be charged US$55 per published page.  Pages containing figures will be subject to a US$20 surcharge.  Additional costs incurred in publishing color figures or photos must be passed onto the author.  These costs vary with several factors, and every effort will be made to reduce these costs.  Page charges will be reduced US$5 per page for those articles with senior authors who are members in good standing with the Georgia Entomological Society.  All fees are subject to change without notice.

Style and Format.  Full guidelines for manuscripts can be found at  Lines within text and tables of manuscripts should be double-spaced.  A title page must contain the name, address, telephone number and email address of the corresponding author in the upper right.  The running head, title, author(s), institutional affiliation where the research was conducted, and any footnotes should be left justified on the remainder of the title page.  An Abstract followed by key words must follow on a separate page.  The text should be divided into an introduction (no heading), Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion (together or separate), and an Acknowledgment(s) (optional).  The References Cited must begin on a new page, and the figure captions and individual tables and figures must be placed on separate pages at the end of the text.  All headings, subheadings, and table and figure captions should be in boldface font.

Figure Preparation.  For review purposes, figures may be black and white or color with each figure on a separate page.  However, figures in final revised typescripts must be in one of the following formats:  TIFF, EPS, WMF, JPEG, or PowerPoint.  (GIF formats are unacceptable as they produce poor quality images.)  Although figures of any size can be submitted, those that fit the width of the printed page (118 mm) expedite the publication process.  In choosing font size of labels and legends, insure that these are sufficiently large so that in reducing figures to fit the printed page (118 x 188 mm), lettering will not be difficult to read.  Photographs should be submitted in TIFF format.  Black and white photos should be in grayscale, not color.  The CMYK color mode - not RGB - must be used for color photos.

Notes.  JES also publishes Notes of original research and observations that may not be sufficiently replicated for acceptance as Scientific Papers but have merit in terms of sharing with the scientific community.  These are designed to be short and rapid communications with none to few tables or figures.  Notes do not contain an abstract or separate text sections (e.g., introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion).  References are cited within the text by placement of authors' last names, date, and journal or book citation within parentheses.
