ESA to publish the Journal of Insect Science
Date:4/24/2014

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) is very pleased to announce that it has assumed ownership of the Journal of Insect Science from the University of Wisconsin.

The Journal of Insect Science is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes papers on all aspects of the biology of insects and other arthropods -- from the molecular to the ecological -- as well as their agricultural and medical impacts. It is freely available to individuals and institutions, and it provides a reasonably priced avenue for authors to publish in an established open-access journal.

The journal was founded with support from the University of Arizona library in 2001 by Dr. Henry Hagedorn, who served as editor-in-chief until his death in January, 2014. The University of Wisconsin assumed publication of the journal in 2005 when Dr. Hagedorn retired from the University of Arizona and moved to Madison, WI.

"We are very pleased to know that the integrity and tradition of the journal will be carried on by ESA, a professional society that has published journals for more than 100 years," said Dr. David Hogg, chair of the Department of Entomology at the University of Wisconsin, and a past president of ESA. "Henry Hagedorn, the journal's founder, was an ESA Fellow and he served on the ESA Publications Council, so I'm sure he'd be happy about the transition."

In addition to publishing research covering all areas of insect science, the journal also encourages submissions from authors in less developed countries by offering discounts and waivers on publication fees.

"Henry Hagedorn was a pioneer in open-access publishing, and he was dedicated to supporting publications by scientists around the world, particularly those in developing countries," said ESA President Frank Zalom. "ESA is honored to carry on Henry's vision with this important addition to our catalog of journals, and we will strive for it to be the preeminent open-access international journal on insect science."

The journal will be transitioned to ESA management over the next several months. Details on the migration and any changes to the submission process will be announced as soon as possible via the JIS and ESA websites.
