Latest News from Systematic Entomology
We encourage non-polemical debate on pressing issues in our field in the form of Opinion pieces. Further, we encourage authors to submit a well reasoned response to a systematic paper published in another journal that is less responsive to debate. To encourage wide dissemination, we are making all Opinion pieces, plus any underlying paper, free to all.

Systematics papers concerning scale insects
The preparation of this virtual issue of Systematic Entomology is timed to coincide with the XIII International Symposium on Scale Insect Studies in Sofia, Bulgaria, in September 2013. Since the first issue of our journal we have received consistent high quality papers from the community of workers studying the Coccoidea. Initially these covered morphological taxonomy, but more recently molecular approaches have grown as have studies including fossil material... Read more.
