Sociobiology

Sociobiology publishes reviews and original research articles on systematics, biology, ecology, genetics, evolution, bevahior and management of social insects. Short notes are published as well, but we are more interested in manuscripts that address biology, ecology, sociality, behavior (any experimental component is welcome) rather than simplistic notes, for instance, description of new records of species occurrence.

Call for Papers: Special Issue on Termites

 

Important Dates

Deadline to submit a manuscript: July 1st, 2017

Publication is scheduled for November 2017

We are pleased to invite you to take part in a special issue on termites that will be published by Sociobiology (ISSN: 0361-6525), a fast track, peer-reviewed, free of publication fees and open access academic journal edited by Universidade Estadual de Feira de Santana (UEFS-Brazil). Sociobiology is indexed and abstracted by ISI-Web of Knowledge; SCOPUS; AGRICOLA; CAB Abstracts; Biological Abstracts, among others.

Due to their astonishing abundance and typical cellulose-digesting abilities, termites impact ecosystem functioning, from biogeochemical cycles to species interactions. Their interindividual interactivity provides firm ground for the study of self-organized collective behaviour while their diplo-diploidy foments rich discussion on the evolution of sociality. All this, coupled with termites' economic impact, implies that scientific interest in this prominent group of organisms is burgeoning and will continue to do so. It is, therefore, timely to invite termite researches to submit original manuscripts and review articles on any aspect of our current knowledge on termites for a special issue of Sociobiology.

The special issue will be published and promoted simultaneously with the program of the IV Symposium of Termitology (IV SymTerm), which will be held in Viçosa-MG, Brazil, from November 07-10, 2017.

 

All submitted papers must contain only original work, which has not been published by or is currently under review for any other journal. Detailed information, and instructions for authors, please visit: http://periodicos.uefs.br/…/index.php/so…/about/submissions…

In order to help us to know that your article is intended to be considered for the special issue, please state this aim in the text box "Comments to the Editor" during Step 1 of the electronic submission process.
