Journal History

The journal SOCIOBIOLOGY, was founded in 1975 by Dr. David Kistner and published by California State University, Chico, aiming to provide a more timely publication of quality papers by researchers of social animals. The serial has grown substantially since it was first published and as a result of the growth in computer based technologies, improvement in quality has been made as well. Over the years the majority of the papers have dealt with, but are not limited to, the various aspects of the biology of social insects such as bees, wasps, termites and ants along with many of the insects associated with them.

Commencing with Volume 60 (2013), the editorial and production offices were located at Feira de Santana State University, in Bahia, Brazil. SOCIOBIOLOGY relies on the principles of peer-review manuscript evaluation, scientific excelence of published articles, free of charge publication and open acces to all published articles.
