Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is in cooperation with the 1st International Electronic Conference on Entomology (IECE), organized by Insects (Impact Factor 2.22) from 1 to 15 July 2021 on the MDPI Sciforum platform. We welcome submissions from participants of the conference, as well as those not participating.

All conference contributors, both to oral and poster sessions, are encouraged to submit a full paper related to their contribution to this Special Issue of Insects at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/insects, with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charge (if accepted). Submission of a manuscript to Insects is independent of conference proceedings and will follow the standard peer-review process.

The Special Issue of Insects will maintain the topical subdivisions of the conference in the following eight fields:

•  Systematics and Morphology
•  Genetics and Genomics
•  Biology, Behavior and Physiology
•  Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution
•  Pest Management
•  Forest and Urban Entomology
•  Medical and Veterinary Entomology
•  Apiculture and Pollinators

Submitted manuscripts to Insects should fulfill the following criteria:

(1) Title and Abstract should be substantially different with that of the conference paper, so that they can be differentiated in various databases.
(2) 50% new data should be added to make it a real and complete journal paper.
(3) The length of full manuscripts should accurately meet the publication standards of Insects. For more information, please visit: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/insects/instructions.

We look forward to your novel work.
