Journal of Pest Science Impact Factor & Information

Publisher: Springer Verlag

Journal description

The Journal of Pest Science provides authoritative coverage of research developments and advances in the fight against pests. Through peer-reviewed original research papers and informative contributions on current topics, the journal acts as a bridge between academic research and application. While most journals on pest management and plant protection concentrate on damage inflicted by insects, bacteria and viruses, this journal also takes into consideration so-called higher animals, such as snails, birds, and certain reptiles. The contributions provide a broad overview of pest science in the areas of agriculture, horticulture, forestry, conservation, stored products research, and health and safety aspects. In doing so, the journal devotes special attention to the development of new methods to control pests, including their effectiveness and side-effects on useful plants. Journal previously known as Anzeiger für Schädlingskunde (1436-5693).
