Instructions to Authors

The Euroasian Entomological Journal ("Evraziatskii Entomologicheskii Zhurnal") publishes original papers dealing with the Insect morphology, taxonomy, faunistics, zoogeography, phylogeny, evolution, ecology, physiology and other aspects of entomology.

1. The journal publishes papers written in Russian, English, German or French, but English is preferred. Diagnoses in the description of new taxa should definitely given by the Authors in English. Russian papers should include a brief English version (up to 2-3 doublespaced typewritten pages). English papers should include Russian abstracts only. All English translations are provided by authors, the Russian translations of English titles, abstracts and figure captions of the papers written by non-Russian authors can be provided by the editors.

As depositoria, the Institute of Systematics and Ecology of Animals, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Zoological Museum of the Moscow Lomonosov State University and/or the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, St.-Petersburg, are preferable.

5. The journal follows certain semiological rules which the authors must respect. Generic and specific names should be typed in italic. Names of new taxa, synonyms, etc., should be concluded by sp.n., gen.n., syn.n. given bold.

- name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) in two languages; including e-mail;
- key words (maximum 8) in two languages;
- brief (up to 20 typewritten lines) abstract in two languages;
- brief English version (for Russian papers only);
- introduction;
- main part of the paper;
- acknowledgements;
- references;
- tables (numbered with arabic numerals; with titles and signatures in two languages);
- figure captions in two languages on separate sheets. The Cyrillic names should be transliterated (romanized) using the following rules of substitution: э как e, ж - zh, х - kh, ц - ts, ч - ch, ш - sh, щ - shch, ю - yu, я - ya, ё - yo.

Illustrations. Line drawings, maps, graphs and photographs are designated as "Fig(s)" in the English texts and as "Рис." in the Russian ones. All figures should be completely ready for publication. All figures should be submitted as raster or vector, Grayscale or RGB images. Each drawing, photo, or plate of photos should be saved as a separate TIFF, or CDR file, with resolution of 1200 dpi (bitmap) or 600 dpi (Grayscale, RGB). Illustrations are designated as "Fig(s)" in the English texts and as "Рис." in the Russian ones. They must be numbered in a sequential order according to the sequence of references in the text. If a figure consists of several parts, they should be lettered in small Latin letters. The maximal size of line drawings and photographs is 20 x 28 cm. Illustrations can be returned to the author(s) after publication at request.

Abbreviations. All abbreviations should be explained in the Materials and methods section. Abbreviations in the tables and illustrations should be explained in the captions.

References. All references should be given in square brackets like [Kryzhanovsky, 1998]. For the English manuscripts, titles of Russian papers (or other papers using non-Latinized alphabets) should be translated while the titles of Russian journals or books of collected papers should be transliterated (e.g. Trudy Zoologicheskogo Instituta AN SSSR), original language should be indicated in square brackets. Journal titles remain unabbreviated unless international. In an English text, the references to the papers published in Russian should be transliterated into Latin letters. A paper with more than two authors is cited as [Davis et al., 2013].
Volumes and numbers of the journals are to be indicated in the language of publication, e.g. Bd. (Band), T. (Tome, Tomus), Vol. (Volume), H. (Heft), Fasc. (Fascicle), etc.
