JOURNAL OF INSECT PHYSIOLOGY

All aspects of insect physiology are published in this journal which will also accept papers on the physiology of other arthropods, if the referees consider the work to be of general interest. The coverage includes endocrinology (in relation to moulting, reproduction and metabolism), pheromones, neurobiology (cellular, integrative and developmental), physiological pharmacology, nutrition (food selection, digestion and absorption), homeostasis, excretion, reproduction and behaviour.

ISJ-INVERTEBRATE SURVIVAL JOURNAL

ISJ-Invertebrate Survival Journal is a peer-reviewed, on-line only and open-access journal devoted to basic and applied studies on the development, evolution and biology of immune-related mechanisms in invertebrates. A special interest is reserved to the studies aiming at biotechnological solutions against invertebrate-derived damages to human health and economy. Beside Research Reports and Reviews, contributions in the format of Short Communications, Technical Reports, Minireviews and Visions and Perspectives are also considered for publication.

INVERTEBRATE REPRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

Invertebrate Reproduction & Development ( IRD) presents original research on the reproductive and developmental biology of the Invertebrata, both embryonic and postembryonic. IRD welcomes papers reporting significant results obtained using new techniques. Encouraged topic areas include: aquaculture, physiology, biochemistry, functional morphology, phylogeny, behavioural and regulatory mechanisms, including genetic, endocrine and molecular studies. Papers containing qualitative descriptions of reproductive cycles and gametogenesis will not be considered.

JOURNAL OF COMPARATIVE NEUROLOGY

JCN is a journal devoted to research in systems neuroscience—understanding communication within systems of neurons, and the relationship of these to function, development, plasticity, degeneration, and repair. Molecular, anatomical, physiological, pharmacological, and behavioral methods are used to investigate neuronal systems, giving rise to the journal’s interdisciplinary scope and broad appeal. JCN covers both basic research in systems neurosciences and clinical aspects of neurology, neuropathology, psychiatry, or psychology.
