Insect Systematics & Evolution

An International Journal of Systematic Entomology

Editor-in-Chief: Hojun Song
Insect Systematics & Evolution (ISE) publishes original papers on all aspects of systematic entomology and the evolutionary history of both extant and extinct insects and related groups. Priority is given to taxonomic revisions and phylogenetic studies employing morphological and molecular data. ISE also welcomes reviews and syntheses that can appeal to a wide community of systematic entomologists. Single species descriptions, regional checklists, and phylogenetic studies based on few taxa or single molecular markers will generally not be accepted.

Benefits to authors
ISE is a subscription-based journal, and thus it is free of charge to publish in this journal. There is no color figure charge for either the print or the PDF version. A PDF file of the article will be supplied free of charge by the publisher to each author. ISE also registers new taxonomic nomenclatural acts to Zoobank (Official Registry of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature). ISE is archived through Portico, which preserves the contents and layout of the work.
