AIMS AND SCOPE
Entomological Research, the successor of the Korean Journal of Entomology, published by the Entomological Society of Korea (ESK) since 1970, is the official English language journal of ESK, and publishes original research articles dealing with any aspect of entomology. Papers in any of the following fields will be considered:
cell and molecular biology
apiculture and sericulture
The Journal publishes research papers, short communications and technical notes, as well as invited reviews.
Authors wanting to submit manuscripts to the Journal must be members of The Entomological Society of Korea. In the case of articles with several authors, at least one author must be a member of the Society.
EDITORIAL REVIEW AND ACCEPTANCE
The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to our readership. Except where otherwise stated, manuscripts are peer reviewed by two anonymous reviewers and the Editor. Final acceptance or rejection rests with the Editorial Board, who reserves the right to refuse any material for publication. Authors should abide by the decision made, and if asked to submit a revised version of their manuscript, do so by the designated due date.
Manuscripts should be written so that they are intelligible to the professional reader who is not a specialist in the particular field. They should be written in a clear, concise, direct style. Where contributions are judged as acceptable for publication on the basis of scientific content, the Editor and the Publisher reserve the right to modify typescripts to eliminate ambiguity and repetition and improve communication between author and reader. If extensive alterations are required, the manuscript will be returned to the author for revision.
To submit and publish a manuscript, ESK assesses charges by stages as following:
1. Submission: To submit a manuscript, one of the authors should be an ESK member. To join ESK, an annual membership fee of USD20 is required.
2. Review: ESK doesn’t pose review charges. However, for manuscripts on new or unrecorded species or on current research trends, which requires fast publication, upon the author’s request, ESK charge USD 180 of Express Review fees to complete review process within 10 days from the submission date.
3. Publication: ESK charge USD 250 of publication fees once a manuscript is finally accepted. The publication of a manuscript may be delayed until funds become available except publication charge waivers.
In the following cases, additional charges may be required.
3.1 Where applicable, the Society will charge the author for English translation of the manuscript.
3.2 A fee will also be charged for pages exceeding the limit of 20 printed pages.
3.3 When the author wants to have color figures in print, a charge of US$530 for the first three color figures and US$265 for each extra color figure thereafter will be charged to the author. In the event that an author is not able to cover the costs of reproducing color figures in color in the printed version of the journal, Entomological Research offers authors the opportunity to reproduce color figures in color for free in the online version of the article (but they will still appear in black and white in the print version). If an author wishes to take advantage of this free color-on-the-web service, they should liaise with the Editorial Office to ensure that the appropriate documentation is completed for the Publisher.
Publication charges may be waived at the Editor-in-Chief’s own discern with eligible reasons for the manuscripts of Invited Review or those submitted from developing countries.
SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS
The Journal is now accepting only online submission through the Manuscript Central website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/enr. Authors must supply an email address as all correspondence will be by email. Two files should be supplied: the covering letter and the manuscript. The covering letter should be uploaded as a file not for review in keeping with the double-blind review process. Figures should also be uploaded as separate files.
Acknowledgment of manuscript receipt will be made to the corresponding author, but submitted manuscripts will not be returned.
If you need help, please contact:
Editorial Manager, Entomological Research Office
Korea university, College of Life Sciences (Nokji #533)
1, 5-ga, Anam-dong, Sungbuk-Gu Seoul 136-713, Korea
All articles submitted to the Journal must comply with these instructions. Failure to do so will result in return of the manuscript and possible delay in publication.Submissions should be double-spaced. The top, bottom and side margins should be at least 30 mm. All pages should be numbered consecutively in the top right-hand corner, beginning with the title page.
The entire article (including tables) should be supplied as a single file; only figures should be supplied as separate files.
Figures must be supplied as high resolution .tif or .eps files. For more information, refer to 'Figures' later in this document.
Specify the first author’s surname, the journal title and the manuscript number.
MS Word format is preferred.
Do not use Enter at the end of lines within a paragraph.
Turn the hyphenation option off; include only those hyphens that are essential to the meaning.
Specify any special characters used to represent non-keyboard characters.
Take care not to use l (ell) for 1 (one), O (capital o) for 0 (zero) or ß (German esszett) for Greek beta.
Use a tab, not spaces, to separate data points in tables. If you use a table editor function, ensure that each data point is contained within a unique cell (i.e. do not use Enter within cells).
Papers are accepted for publication in the Journal on the understanding that the content has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. This must be stated in the covering letter.
The covering letter must also contain an acknowledgment that all authors have contributed significantly, and that all authors are in agreement with the content of the manuscript.
Authors must declare any financial support or relationships that may pose conflict of interest.
If tables or figures have been reproduced from another source, a letter from the copyright holder (usually the Publisher), stating authorization to reproduce the material, must be attached to the covering letter.
Pre-submission English-language editing
Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited before submission to improve the English. A list of independent suppliers of editing services can be found at http://wileyeditingservices.com/en/. All services are paid for and arranged by the author, and use of one of these services does not guarantee acceptance or preference for publication.
Author material archive policy
Authors who require the return of any submitted material that is accepted for publication should inform the Editorial Office after acceptance. If no indication is given that author material should be returned, Wiley-Blackwell will dispose of all material two months after publication.
Any experiments involving animals must be demonstrated to be ethically acceptable and where relevant conform to national guidelines for animal usage in research.
In taxonomic papers, type specimens and type depositories must be clearly designated and indicated. Authors are required to deposit the name-bearing type material in internationally recognized institutions (not private collections).
When the research is carried out in areas for which research permits are required (e.g. nature reserves), or when it deals with organisms for which collection or import/export permits are required (e.g. protected species), the authors must clearly detail obtaining these permits in the Acknowledgments section.
If your paper is accepted, the author identified as the formal corresponding author for the paper will receive an email prompting them to login into Author Services; where via the Wiley Author Licensing Service (WALS) they will be able to complete the license agreement on behalf of all authors on the paper.

STYLE OF THE MANUSCRIPT
Spelling. The Journal uses US spelling and authors should therefore follow the latest edition of the Merriam–Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
Units. All measurements must be given in SI or SI-derived units.
Abbreviations. Abbreviations should be used sparingly – only where they ease the reader’s task by reducing repetition of long, technical terms. Initially use the word in full, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. Thereafter use the abbreviation only.
Trade names. Chemical substances should be referred to by the generic name only. Trade names should not used.
Zoological nomenclature. All papers must conform to the latest edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Upon its first use in the title, abstract and text, the common name of a species should be followed by the scientific name (genus, species and authority) in parentheses. Genus names should not be abbreviated at the beginning of paragraphs.
Genetic nomenclature. Standard genetic nomenclature should be used.
Nucleotide sequence data can be submitted in electronic form to any of the three major collaborative databases: DDBJ, EMBL or GenBank. It is only necessary to submit to one database as data are exchanged between DDBJ, EMBL and GenBank on a daily basis. The suggested wording for referring to accession-number information is: “These sequence data have been submitted to the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank databases under accession number U12345.”
Addresses are as follows:
DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ) http://www.ddbj.nig.ac.jp
EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Submissions http://www.ebi.ac.uk
PARTS OF THE MANUSCRIPT
The length of an article (including references, tables and appendices) should not exceed 20 printed pages. Short communications should not exceed 4 printed pages.
Manuscripts should be presented in the following order: (i) title page, (ii) abstract and key words, (iii) text, (iv) acknowledgments, (v) references, (vi) appendices, (vii) figure legends, (viii) tables (each table complete with title and footnotes) and (ix) figures. Footnotes to the text are not allowed and any such material should be incorporated into the text as parenthetical matter.
The title page should contain (i) the title of the paper, (ii) the full names of the authors and (iii) the addresses of the institutions at which the work was carried out together with (iv) the full postal and email address, plus facsimile and telephone numbers, of the author to whom correspondence about the manuscript should be sent. The present address of any author, if different from that where the work was carried out, should be supplied in a footnote.
The title should be short, informative and contain the major key words. Do not use abbreviations in the title. A short running title (less than 45 characters) should also be provided.
Abstract and key words
All articles must have a brief abstract that states in 250 words or fewer the purpose, basic procedures, main findings and principal conclusions of the study. The abstract should not contain abbreviations or references.
Up to six key words (for the purposes of indexing) should be supplied below the abstract in alphabetical order.
Authors should use the following subheadings to divide the sections of their manuscript: Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and Discussion.
The source of financial grants and other funding must be acknowledged, including a frank declaration of the authors’ industrial links and affiliations. The contribution of colleagues or institutions should also be acknowledged. Personal thanks and thanks to anonymous reviewers are not appropriate.
The Harvard (author, date) system of referencing is used (examples are given below). In the text, give the author’s name followed by the year in parentheses: Smith (2000). If there are two authors use 'and': Smith and Jones (2001); but if cited within parentheses use '&': (Smith & Jones 2001). When reference is made to a work by three or more authors, the first name followed by et al. should be used: MacDonald et al. (2002). In the reference list, references should be listed in alphabetical order.
In the reference list, cite the names of all authors when there are six or fewer; when seven or more, list the first six followed by et al. Do not use ibid. or op cit. Reference to unpublished data and personal communications should not appear in the list but should be cited in the text only (e.g. A. Smith, unpubl. data, 2005). All citations mentioned in the text, tables or figures must be listed in the reference list.

References in articles
We recommend the use of a tool such as EndNote or Reference Manager for reference management and formatting.
EndNote reference styles can be searched for here: http://www.endnote.com/support/enstyles.asp.
Reference Manager reference styles can be searched for here: http://www.refman.com/support/rmstyles.asp.
Tables should be self-contained and complement, but not duplicate, information contained in the text. Number tables consecutively in the text in Arabic numerals. Type tables on a separate page with the legend above. Legends should be concise but comprehensive – the table, legend and footnotes must be understandable without reference to the text. Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Column headings should be brief, with units of measurement in parentheses; all abbreviations must be defined in footnotes. Footnote symbols: †, ‡, §, ¶, should be used (in that order) and *, **, *** should be reserved for P-values. Statistical measures such as SD or SEM should be identified in the headings.
All illustrations (line drawings and photographs) are classified as figures. Figures should be cited in consecutive order in the text. Figures should be sized to fit within the column (80 mm), intermediate (110 mm) or the full text width (167 mm).
Do not embed figures in the Word document – they must be supplied in separate files. Figures must be supplied as high resolution (at least 300 d.p.i.) files, saved as .eps or .tif. Line figures should be supplied in .eps format as at least 600 d.p.i. For very simple line figures, .xls and .ppt files will be accepted. Combination figures (with an image and text) should be in .eps format as at least 600 d.p.i. They can be supplied as .tif files but if so should be at least 600 d.p.i. and line work should not appear jagged. Line figures should be supplied as sharp, black and white graphs or diagrams, drawn professionally or with a computer graphics package. Lettering must be included and should be sized to be no larger than the journal text.
Color figure files should be set up as CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) and not as RGB (red, green, blue) so that colors as they appear on screen will be a closer representation of how they will print in the Journal.
Magnifications should be indicated using a scale bar on the illustration.
Wiley-Blackwell’s web page for digital graphics standards provides more information.
Figure legends. Type figure legends on a separate page. Legends should be concise but comprehensive – the figure and its legend must be understandable without reference to the text. Include definitions of any symbols used and define/explain all abbreviations and units of measurement.
It is essential that corresponding authors supply an email address to which correspondence can be emailed while their article is in production.
Notification of the URL from where to download a Portable Document Format (PDF) typeset page proof, associated forms and further instructions will be sent by email to the corresponding author. The purpose of the PDF proof is a final check of the layout, and of tables and figures. Alterations other than the essential correction of errors are unacceptable at PDF proof stage. The proof should be checked, and approval to publish the article should be emailed to the Publisher by the date indicated, otherwise, it may be signed off on by the Editor or held over to the next issue.
E-annotation is a natural extension of PDF proofing, with a number of benefits:
- Increased speed of journals publication schedules
- Increased efficiency for authors and journal Production Editors
- Clearer corrections in the annotated files
- More accurate interpretations of corrections by typesetters
- Easy and efficient circulation of annotated proofs via email to Editors and co-authors
E-annotation works as follows: The typesetter uses Acrobat 7 to enable annotation on the proofs. The recipient then needs to ensure that they have Acrobat Reader version 7.0 or above (instructions and link provided with the PDF proof) or Acrobat Professional in order to use the annotation functionality. The annotation toolbar allows proof corrections to be marked Setting Up E-annotation of Proofs 4 of 7 electronically – by crossing out, replacing or inserting text, and even inserting an attachment (such as a new abstract or figure). The corrected proofs are then sent to the person who collates them and, after checking, they are then returned to the typesetter.
This system reduces the time taken for authors to send proofs in the post, and results in more legible proofs for the typesetters, avoiding problems of text being cut off (as can happen when faxing) or illegible handwriting.
Entomological Research is covered by our Early View service. Early View articles are complete full-text articles published online in advance of their publication in a printed issue. Articles are therefore available as soon as they are ready, rather than having to wait for the next scheduled print issue. Early View articles are complete and final. They have been fully reviewed, revised and edited for publication, and the authors’ final corrections have been incorporated. Because they are in final form, no changes can be made after online publication. The nature of Early View articles means that they do not yet have volume, issue or page numbers, so Early View articles cannot be cited in the traditional way. They are therefore given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the article to be cited and tracked before it is allocated to an issue. After print publication, the DOI remains valid and can continue to be used to cite and access the article. More information about DOIs can be found at http://www.doi.org/faq.html.
A minimum of 50 offprints will be provided upon request, at the author’s expense. These paper offprints may be ordered online. Please visit http://offprint.cosprinters.com/, fill in the necessary details and ensure that you type information in all of the required fields. If you have queries about offprints please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Entomological Research is also available online via wileyonlinelibrary.com. Author Services enables authors to track their article, once it has been accepted, through the production process to publication online and in print. Authors can check the status of their articles online and choose to receive automated emails at key stages of production so they do not need to contact the production editor to check on progress.
