Elsevier Announces Launch Of New Journal: Current Opinion In Insect Science

NEW YORK, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

First published articles now available for free online on ScienceDirect 

How does oxygen control insect body size? What influence does genetics have on insects' social structure? Articles published in the first issue of Current Opinion in Insect Science - launched today - aims to answer these and more questions.

Current Opinion in Insect Science is the latest title in Elsevier's Current Opinion journal series. It is a review journal that aims to provide specialists with a unique platform to keep up-to-date with the expanding volume of information published in the field of insect science. First articles published are now available for free on ScienceDirect.

Professor David Denlinger ( Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA) and Dr. Jeff Harvey (Netherlands Institute of Ecology) lead the editorial board.

"Initially I was reluctant to launch a new journal as there are so many out there already," said Denlinger. "I soon realized the unique niche defined by Elsevier's Current Opinion series however. This addition to the series offers an exciting way to keep the growing community of insect scientists up to date on diverse hot topics affecting our field."

"Following the success of the Molecular Insect Science conference held in Amsterdam in 2011, we started to develop the idea of a new Current Opinion title that could encompass the expanding amount of research in the insect science discipline," said Dale Seaton, Executive Publisher Biological Sciences at Elsevier. "With David and Jeff's leadership we have assembled a series of topical reviews from the world's leading scientists that will provide essential reading updates for the insect research community."

The first issue of Current Opinion in Insect Science is available for free on ScienceDirect
