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.
