Journal of Integrated Pest Management is now online
Date:12/2/2010

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) has just released the first issue of its newest periodical, Journal of Integrated Pest Management (JIPM), which is available online for free. JIPM is an online-only, open-access, peer-reviewed extension journal that covers the field of integrated pest management. The intended readership for the journal is any professional who is engaged in any aspect of integrated pest management, including, but not limited to, crop producers, individuals working in crop protection, retailers, manufacturers and suppliers of pest management products, educators, and pest control operators.

"The Journal of Integrated Pest Management is ESA's first new journal in 39 years. This journal takes the science of entomology, and other pest disciplines, and delivers it to an audience outside of our scientific community. The journal gives ESA an outlet for making our science relevant to pest management practitoners and the general public," said editors-in-chief Marlin Rice and Kevin Steffey.

"JIPM is truly a novel concept. It will publish peer-reviewed, scientifically-based, open-access articles on the Internet, which are specifically written to target a non-scientific readership. The journal will be the perfect vehicle for communicating pest management information to the general public."

The journal is multi-disciplinary in scope, publishing articles in all pest management disciplines, including entomology, nematology, plant pathology, weed science, and other subject areas. Articles in JIPM are written to help IPM professionals work on pest management issues, and are divided into three categories:

1) Profiles of insects, including scientific name, description of stages, biology, life history, host plants, potential for economic damage, sampling or scouting procedures, and management and control options.

2) Emerging IPM Issues, including information on the issue's relevance, why the issue developed, balanced perspectives on the issue, and possible solutions.

3) Recommendations on pest-control and pest-management topics which are based upon the principles of integrated pest management and supported by published research and validation data when available.

The first issue contains the following articles:

  • Ecology and Management of the Western Bean Cutworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Corn and Dry Beans
  • Noctua pronuba (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): An Outbreak in Emails
  • Stalk Borer (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) Ecology and Integrated Pest Management in Corn
  • Pest Status of Invasive Crane Flies in New York Turfgrass and the Repercussions for Regional Plant Protection
  • Discovery and Distribution of Megacopta cribraria (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Plataspidae) in Northeast Georgia
