The Journal of Entomological and Acarological Research (JEAR), formerly the Bollettino di Zoologia Agraria e di Bachicoltura of the Institute of Entomology of the Università degli Studi, Milano, was founded in 1928 by Remo Grandori. Thereafter, Minos Martelli and Luciano Süss held the direction of the Journal until December 2011. In January 2012, the Editor decided for the new open-access on-line version of JEAR.

The Journal publishes original research papers on Arthropods; reviews, editorials, technical reports, brief notes, conference proceedings, letters to the Editor, and book reviews are also welcome.

JEAR has four main areas of interest:

  • Entomology (systematics; morphology; biology; biotechnology; agriculture, ornamental and forest entomology; applied entomology; integrated pest management; biological control; apiculture and apidology; medical, urban and veterinary entomology; etc.)
  • Stored product pests (biology; integrated pest management; etc.)
  • Insect Ecology (behaviour; biodiversity; taxonomy; plant insect interaction and ecosystems; biological control; alien species; etc.)
  • Acarology (systematics; morphology; biology; parasitology; control; etc.)

The publication of manuscripts is subject to the approval of the Section Editor who has knowledge of the field discussed in the manuscript in accordance with the principles of peer review; referees will be selected from the Editorial Board or among qualified scientists of the international scientific community. Articles must be written in English and adhere to the guidelines and details contained in the Instructions to Authors.

Welcome Greeting from Chair

I am pleased to welcome you to the 27th International Congress of Entomology (ICE2024 Kyoto) to be held in Kyoto, Japan, from August 25 to 30, 2024. The Local organizing Committee (LOC) is in the Union of the Japanese Societies for Insect Sciences (UJSIS) which consists of 17 insect science-related academic societies and one association. Thirteen years have passed since the UJSIS was established at its inaugural meeting held in the Science Council of Japan (SCJ) on July 24, 2010. The UJSIS Statutes state that its purpose is, “to promote research and education in insect science and related disciplines, and to contribute to the development and social diffusion of this field in Japan”.
