Publisher: Society of Southwestern Entomologists
Manuscripts submitted for consideration for publication in the Southwestern Entomologist should report results of entomological research in the southwestern United States or Mexico or should report results of studies on entomological species, relevant to this region, which may be done elsewhere, provided such results are geographically applicable. Manuscripts that report results of routine laboratory or field experiments for which the primary purpose is gathering baseline data or those that report results of a continuous evaluation program such as preliminary pesticide evaluation experiments, species lists with no supporting biological data, or preliminary plant resistance evaluations are not acceptable. However, reports of experiments with insecticides, acaricides, and microbials are acceptable if they are comprehensive and include data related to economics, resistance, toxicology, or other broad subject areas. Bibliographies will not be published in Southwestern Entomologist.
Scientific Notes can pertain to observations on new hosts, geographic records, and new techniques. Manuscript preparation and review are the same as that for a regular article. Scientific Notes should not exceed four, single-spaced pages and may contain a single figure or a table. The only section that should be identified by a No. 1 heading is the References Cited section.
A section entitled "Perspectives" is available for contributions of general interest with an emphasis on papers of a theoretical or historical nature. Because of the nature of Perspectives articles, more tolerance for speculation is acceptable than in regular research articles.
Supplements, which consist of a collection of papers on a similar topic or large monographic articles, may be published periodically. Guidelines for preparation of Supplements are the same as those for regular journal articles. Anyone wishing to develop a supplement should contact the Editor.
