Overview


Pest Management Science is the international journal of research and development in crop protection and pest control. Since its launch in 1970, the journal has become the premier forum for papers on the discovery, application, and impact on the environment of products and strategies designed for pest management.

Published for SCI by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

SCI (Society of Chemical Industry) is a unique international forum where science meets business on independent, impartial ground. Anyone can join and current Members include consumers, business people, environmentalists, industrialists, farmers, and researchers. The Society offers a chance to share information between sectors as diverse as food and agriculture, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, materials, chemicals, environmental science and safety. As well as organising educational events, SCI awards a number of prestigious honours and scholarships each year, publishes peer-reviewed journals, and provides Members with news from their sectors in the respected twice-monthly magazine, Chemistry & Industry .

Originally established in London in 1881 and in New York in 1894, SCI is a registered charity with Members in over 70 countries.


Aims and Scope


Topics covered by the journal include:

  • Applications of biotechnology and molecular biology relevant to pest management and crop, animal and public health

  • Biological control, biopesticides and integrated pest management (IPM)

  • Resistance of pests to management products and strategies

  • Synthesis, discovery, screening, structure/activity and biochemical mode of action of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and growth regulators

  • Properties of new compounds; modelling and formulation studies, and application systems for their performance

  • Metabolism, degradation, field performance, environmental studies and safety in use of new and existing products

  • Naturally occurring materials for pest management

  • Genetic and ecological implications of pesticide use alone and with other methods of pest control

  • Protection of commodities

  • Toxicology, risk assessment and regulation

The journal may publish papers from scientific meetings of the SCI BioResources Group and from other selected international conferences and also lists of recently adopted BSI common names for pesticides.
