Instruction To Contributors
Indian Journal of Entomology, a leading journal in entomological science published quarterly since 1956 by The Entomological Society of India, invites and accepts contributions from the members ofthe society. After requisite peer reviewing, it publishes original articles on various aspects of entomology - both basic and applied, covering taxonomy, insect-toxicology, insect-ecology, biodiversity, pest-management and pesticides, biopesticides and botanicals, biotechnological approaches in entomology, inclusive of latest trends in frontier technologies like application of remote sensing, and crop-pest modeling. Article should be original, indicate period (years) of experimentation, basedondata of minimum 2 years for full research paper, must not be the work of more than 5 years old. The review papers, research papers, and short notes should not exceed 30, 20 and 7 typed pages including tables and figures respectively.
TITLE should be short, specific and informative. The title page should include the name(s) of author(s), affiliation, and mailing address with e-mail of corresponding author, a running short title not exceeding 40 characters. By-line should contain the place (organization) where research was conducted.
ABSTRACT written in complete and simple sentences, should not be more than 150 words. Key words (maximum seven) must be given; and these should appear just beneath the abstract.
INTRODUCTION part should be brief and limited to the problem or the aim and scope ofthe experiment.
MATERIALS AND METHODS relevant details should be given including experimental design and the technique(s) used along with appropriate statistical methods used clearly along with the year of experimentation (field and laboratory).
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION should be combined, to avoid repetition. Results should be supported by brief but adequate tables or graphic or pictorial presentations, wherever necessary. Self-explanatory tables should be typed on separate sheets; tables should fit in the normal page lay-out. All recent relevant literature should be discussed critically.
