Instructions to Authors
Chinese Journal of Applied Entomology, launched in 1955, is a peer-reviewed Chinese and English bilingual journal, co-sponsored by the Institute of Zoology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Entomological Society of China. Editor jointly by College of Plant Protection, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University and Guangdong Entomological Institute, Guangdong Academy of Science. It publishes original papers as well as review articles and short communications that cover all aspects of entomological sciences. It is indexed and abstracted in Abstracts of Entomology, Abstract Journal, Chemical Abstracts, CAB Database, Entomological Abstracts and Zoological Records, etc. The most influential scholars in various fields of entomological research in China and abroad make up the present editorial board.
Aims and Scope
The aims of the Chinese Journal of Applied Entomology are to report the most recent achievements and advances in entomological sciences, and to promote academic exchanges among entomological researchers in China and abroad. The journal publishes original research papers, review articles and short communications concerning various aspects of entomology and various groups of insects, and accepts submissions in Chinese or English. Currently, our content are organized in four regular sections, i.e.,Frontiers and Reviews, Special Column, Research Articles and Techniques and Methods, for each issue.
The Journal is printed in a two-column format (column width of 80 mm) with a text area of 165 × 240 mm.
The title page of manuscript should contain title, author name, addresses of university or institution of affiliation, a running title (40 characters or less), and the name and address of the author for correspondence including telephone number and e-mail address. Authors with different affiliations should be identified by the use of the same number of superscript on name before affiliation.
Each paper must commence with an accurate, informative abstract in one paragraph, which is complete in itself and intelligible without reference to text or figures. It should include four elements: objectives, methods, results and conclusions. A list of 5-8 key words should accompany the abstract.
Papers should be typed, in single column format on one side only, with double line spacing and ample margins (at least 1.5 cm) on each side and with no underlining or bold in text except for scientific names. Standard abbreviations (e.g. fig. and figs.) and metric units must be used.
Upon acceptance, authors are requested to submit an electronic file of the final version of their paper through e-mail to the editorial office. Microsoft word format is preferred for text. For figures or photos, electronic files in common graph formats (e.g. tif, or gif) are acceptable.
Tables should be reduced to the simplest form and present only essential data. They should be submitted on separate sheets at the end of the article and must fit into single column, full width or landscape (if absolutely necessary) format. Captions should be typed on a separate sheet. The use of vertical rules should be avoided.
Copies of artwork only should be submitted. The original illustrations should accompany the paper after acceptance and revision. Captions should be typed on a separate sheet.
These should be sharp and clear, black ink on white paper to about 1.5 times the intended final size. The lettering and lines should be of sufficient thickness and quality to stand reduction. Computer generated figures and graphs should not contain grey tints or complicated hatching.
Black and white or color photographs are acceptable where they are a real contribution to the text. They should be prints of good quality at the intended final size with any required lettering or numbering inserted by the author.
References must be based on the name and year system, give abbreviated journal titles and conform to the following styles:
