Insect Systematics and Diversity

Edited by Sydney A. Cameron and James B. Whitfield

Insect Systematics and Diversity (ISD), which is scheduled to begin publication in 2017, will publish original research on systematics, evolution, and biodiversity of insects and related arthropods. The journal will welcome integrative studies incorporating comparative and functional morphology, conservation, behavior, taxonomy, molecular phylogenetics, paleobiology, natural history, and articles that utilize novel technologies or data types or describe emerging methods of research. Two professors from the University of Illinois - Dr. Sydney A. Cameron and Dr. James B. Whitfield - have been appointed to serve as co-editors-in-chief.

ISD will be online-only and subscription-based. As an online-only journal, ISD will be able to publish papers in a variety of lengths, from short communications, to reviews of current topics, to revisions of up to 200 pages. ESA members will be exempt from page charges when publishing in the new journal. As the journal is online-only, all color figures will be free to publish.
