How to publish in this journal


Taxonomic manuscripts with isolated species descriptions are generally discouraged, especially for genera with large numbers of undescribed species; it lies at the discretion of the editorial team whether such manuscripts are considered. Papers on new distribution records will be considered if the new records are sufficiently important or unexpected from a biogeographical perspective. Such papers could, for example, discuss relevant biological/ecological data and/or biogeographical implications such as analysis by species-distribution modelling. In detail, research areas covered by Myrmecological News include: behaviour; biogeography and faunistics; biological-pest control; chemical ecology; climate-change biology; cognition and learning; comparative and functional morphology; community ecology; conservation biology and bioindication; cytogenetics; ecology and evolution of (endo)symbioses; ecosystem (dis)services; foraging strategies; fossils; fragmentation ecology; genomics; histology; immune research; (integrative) taxonomy; interspecific hybridisation; invasion biology; life-history research; methodology in community quantification; national checklists; neurobiology; niche ecology; orientation and navigation; phenology; phylogeny and phylogeography; population genetics; sensory physiology; social evolution; social parasitism; sociogenomics; stable isotopes; tools for routine identification.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
