      Journal Abbreviation: INSECT SCI


      The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to our readership. Manuscripts are peer reviewed by two anonymous reviewers. The reviewers’ evaluations are compiled by the Editor-in-Chief for disposition and transmittal to the authors.

      The Editor-in-Chief will advise authors whether a manuscript is accepted, should be revised or is rejected. Minor revisions are expected to be returned within four weeks of decision; major revisions within three months. Manuscripts not revised within these time periods are subject to withdrawal from consideration for publication unless the authors can provide extenuating circumstances.

      A number of manuscripts will have to be rejected on the grounds of priority and available space. A manuscript may be returned to the authors without outside review if the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor find it inappropriate for publication in the Journal. Similarly, the Editors may expedite the review process for manuscripts felt to be of high priority in order to reach a rapid decision. Such ‘fast-track decisions’ will normally occur within one week of receipt of the manuscript.

      Authors may provide the Editor-in-Chief with the names, addresses and email addresses of up to three suitably qualified individuals of international standing who would be competent to referee the work, although the Editor-in-Chief will not be bound by any such nomination. Likewise, authors may advise of any individual who for any reason, such as potential conflict of interest, might be inappropriate to act as a referee, again without binding the Editor-in-Chief.

      The Editor-in-Chief’s decision is final. If, however, authors dispute a decision and can document good reasons why a manuscript should be reconsidered, a rebuttal process exists. In the first place, authors should write to the Editor-in-Chief.

      Manuscripts should be written in a clear, concise, direct style so that they are intelligible to a professional reader who is not a specialist in the particular field. Where contributions are judged as acceptable for publication on the basis of scientific content, the Editor and the Publisher reserve the right to modify typescripts to eliminate ambiguity and repetition and improve communication between author and reader. If extensive alterations are required, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revision.


      As a condition of submission, and based on International Committee of Medical Journal Editors  guidelines, authorship credit must be based on 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important  ntellectual content; and 3) final approval of the version to be published. Authors should meet conditions 1, 2, and 3. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship, such as medical writers, proofreaders and editors, should be listed in the Acknowledgments section. Authors are responsible for ensuring that this is correctly reported without any omission or non-qualified additions.


      At the time of submission, the submitting author must include a disclosure statement in the body of the manuscript. All authors are required to disclose all potential conflicts of interest, including specific financial interests and relationships and affiliations (other than those affiliations listed in the title page of the manuscript)  relevant to the subject of their manuscript. This information should be provided under the heading titled ‘Disclosure,’ which should appear after the ‘Acknowledgment’ section and before the ‘References’ section.

      Authors without conflicts of interest, including specific financial interests and relationships and affiliations relevant to the subject of their manuscript, should include a statement of no such interests in the Disclosure section of the manuscript. Failure to include this information in the manuscript may delay evaluation and review of the  manuscript.


      Authors must state that the protocol for the research project has been approved by a suitably constituted Ethics Committee of the institution within which the work was undertaken and that it conforms to the provisions of the Declaration of Helsinki in 1995 (as revised in Edinburgh 2000),

      In taxonomic papers, type specimens and type depositories must be clearly designated and indicated. Authors are required to deposit the name-bearing type material in internationally recognized institutions (not private collections). When the research is carried out in areas for which research permits are required (e.g. nature reserves), or when it deals with organisms for which collection or import/export permits are required (e.g. protected species), the authors must clearly detail obtaining these permits in the Acknowledgments section.

      The journal retains the right to reject any manuscript on the basis of unethical conduct of either human or animal studies. Any experiments involving animals must be demonstrated to be ethically acceptable and where relevant conform to national guidelines for animal usage in research.


      Accepted papers will be passed to Wiley’s production team for publication. The author identified as the formal corresponding author for the paper will receive an email prompting them to login into Wiley’s Author Services, where via the Wiley Author Licensing Service (WALS) they will be asked to complete an electronic license agreement on behalf of all authors on the paper.

      FAQs about the terms and conditions of the standard copyright transfer agreements (CTA) in place for the journal, including terms regarding archiving of the accepted version of the paper, are available at: CTA Terms and Conditions FAQs

      The Journal uses US spelling and authors should therefore follow the latest edition of the Merriam–Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.


      All measurements must be given in SI or SI-derived units. Please go to the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) website at http://www.bipm.fr for more information about SI units.


      Abbreviations should be used sparingly – only where they ease the reader’s task by reducing repetition of long, technical terms. Initially use the word in full, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses.  Thereafter use the abbreviation only.

      Zoological nomenclature.

      All papers must conform to the latest edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Upon its first use in the title, abstract and text, the common name of a species should be followed by the scientific name (genus, species and authority) in parentheses. Genus names should not be abbreviated at the beginning of paragraphs.

      Genetic nomenclature.

      Standard genetic nomenclature should be used. For further information, including relevant websites, authors should refer to the genetic nomenclature guide in Trends in Genetics (Elsevier Science, 1998).

      New nucleotide data must be submitted and deposited in the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank databases and an accession number obtained before the paper can be accepted for publication. The accession number should be included in the manuscript. Addresses are as follows:

      DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ)http://www.ddbj.nig.ac.jp

      EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Submissionshttp://www.ebi.ac.uk



      Manuscripts should be presented in the following order: (i) title page, (ii) abstract and key words, (iii) text, (iv) acknowledgements, (v) disclosure(vi) references, (vii) appendices, (viii) figure legends, (ix) tables (each table complete with title and footnotes) and (x) figures. Footnotes to the text are not allowed and any such material should be incorporated into the text as parenthetical matter.

      Title page

      The title page should contain (i) the title of the paper, (ii) the full names of the authors and (iii) the addresses of the institutions at which the work was carried out together with (iv) the full postal and email address, plus facsimile and telephone numbers, of the author to whom correspondence about the manuscript should be sent. The present address of any author, if different from that where the work was carried out, should be supplied in a footnote. The title should be short, informative and contain the major key words. Do not use abbreviations in the title. A short running title (less than 40 characters) should also be provided.

      Abstract and key words

      All articles must have a brief abstract that states in 300 words or fewer the purpose, basic procedures, main findings and principal conclusions of the study. The abstract should not contain abbreviations or references. Six key words (for the purposes of indexing) should be supplied below the abstract in alphabetical order.


      Authors should use the following subheadings to divide the sections of their manuscript: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion.


      The source of financial grants and other funding must be acknowledged, including a frank declaration of the authors’ industrial links and affiliations. The contribution of colleagues or institutions should also be acknowledged. Personal thanks and thanks to anonymous reviewers are not appropriate.


      At the time of submission, each author must disclose and describe any involvement, financial or otherwise, that might potentially bias his or her work. Disclosure must be included in the text of the manuscript.


      The Harvard (author, date) system of referencing is used (examples are given below). In the text give the author’s name followed by the year in parentheses: Smith (2000). If there are two authors use ‘and’: Smith and Jones (2001); but if cited within parentheses use ‘&’: (Smith & Jones, 2001). When reference is made to a work by three or more authors, the first name followed by et al. should be used: MacDonald et al. (2002). If papers by the same authors in the same year are cited, they should be distinguished by the letters a, b, c, etc. In the reference list, references should be listed in alphabetical order. Reference to unpublished data and personal communications should not appear in the list but should be cited in the text only (e.g. Smith A, 2000, unpublished data). All citations mentioned in the text, tables or figures must be listed in the reference list. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of the references. Examples of reference style are given below:

      Tables should be self-contained and complement, but not duplicate, information contained in the text. Number tables consecutively in the text in Arabic numerals. Type tables on a separate sheet with the legend above. Legends should be concise but comprehensive – the table, legend and footnotes must be understandable without reference to the text. Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Column headings should be brief, with units of measurement in parentheses; all abbreviations must be defined in footnotes. Footnote symbols: , ,§, should be used (in that order) and *, **, *** should be reserved for P-values. Statistical measures such as SD or SEM should be identified in the headings.


      All illustrations (line drawings and photographs) are classified as figures. Figures should be cited in consecutive order in the text. Each figure should be labelled on the back in soft black pencil, indicating name of author(s), figure number and orientation. Do not use adhesive labels as this prohibits electronic scanning. Figures should be sized to fit within the column (80 mm) or the full text width (169 mm). Line figures should be supplied as sharp, black and white graphs or diagrams, drawn professionally or with a computer graphics package. Lettering must be included and should be sized to be no larger than the journal text. Photographs should be supplied as sharp, glossy, black-and-white photographic prints and must be unmounted. Individual photographs forming a composite figure should be of equal contrast, to facilitate printing, and should be accurately squared. Magnifications should be indicated using a scale bar on the illustration. If supplied electronically, graphics must be supplied as high resolution (at least 300 d.p.i.) files, saved as .eps or .tif. A high-resolution print-out must also be provided. Digital images supplied only as low-resolution print-outs and/or files cannot be used.

      It is the policy of Insect Science for authors to pay the full cost for the reproduction of their colour artwork. Please complete and return the Colour Work Agreement Form to the Editor before publication.

      Figure legends.

      Legends should be concise but comprehensive – the figure and its legend must be understandable without reference to the text. Include definitions of any symbols used and define/explain all abbreviations and units of measurement.



      Plagiarism Detection

      Insect Science employs a plagiarism detection system. By submitting your manuscript to this journal you accept that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism against previously published works.


      All articles submitted to the Journal must comply with these instructions. Failure to do so will result in return of the manuscript and possible delay in publication.

      The text should be prepared by Microsoft Word with double space.

      Add line numbers in the Word file before uploading the manuscript.

      Do not use the carriage return (Enter) at the end of lines within a paragraph.

      Turn the hyphenation option off; include only those hyphens that are essential to the meaning.

      Specify any special characters used to represent non-keyboard characters.

      Take care not to use l (ell) for 1 (one), O (capital o) for 0 (zero) or  (German esszett) for Greek beta.

      Use a tab, not spaces, to separate data points in tables. If you use a table editor function, ensure that each data

      point is contained within a unique cell (i.e. do not use carriage returns within cells).

      Covering letter

      Papers are accepted for publication in Insect Science on the understanding that the content has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere except as a brief abstract in the proceedings of a scientific meeting or symposium. This must be stated in the covering letter.

      The covering letter must also contain an acknowledgment that all authors have contributed significantly, and that all authors are in agreement with the content of the manuscript. In keeping with the latest guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, each author’s contribution to the paper is to be quantified.

      If tables or figures have been reproduced from another source, a letter from the copyright holder (usually the Publisher), stating authorization to reproduce the material, must be attached to the covering letter.

      Pre-acceptance English-language editing

      Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited before submission to improve the English. Visit our site to learn about the options. All services are paid for and arranged by the author. Please note using the Wiley English Language Editing Service does not guarantee that your paper will be accepted by this journal.

      10. PROOFS

      It is essential that corresponding authors supply an email address to which proofs can be emailed. Full instructions on how to correct and return the file will be attached to the email.

      11. OFFPRINTS

      A PDF file of the final version of the paper will be provided free of charge. The PDF file is for authors’ personal or professional use, for the purposes of scholarly or scientific research or study. Paper offprints are available for a fee and should be ordered at proof stage.

      12. COVER IMAGE

      The submission of cover image suggestions is actively encouraged. Suggestions can be sent in at any time from acceptance of the manuscript to completion of the page proof corrections. You can suggestion 1-3 images for selection. A low-resolution image is sufficient at this stage–if your suggestion is chosen for the cover we will contact you for production data. A cover image should above all be eye-catching. The cover is a showcase for the journal and your research. The author will contribute to the costs of color printing.

      Decisions for the cover are made after a manuscript has been assigned to an issue. The editorial team will select those images they consider most appropriate for the cover. This is usually done shortly after online publication in Early View, but the time may vary.

      When a cover image is chosen, the author should provide:

      A high-resolution file of your image, saved as either a TIFF or PSD file. The actual resolutionmay vary, but should

      be high enough (> 300 dpi) that the image is clear and sharp.

      A short (50–80 words) description of the cover and the work it represents should be included. This description

      will be featured on the cover description page.

      Final data can be sent to the editorial office by e-mail. If the files are too large to be sent by e-mail, please send it in a disk to the editorial office.

      When your suggested cover is selected and published, we will provide you with a high-resolution PDF version. A hard copy of the issue is available free of charge from the editorial office.
