The longest-publishing Acarology journal
Acarologia, founded in 1959 by Marc André and François Grandjean, is the first and longest-publishing journal devoted to Acarology.
Acarologia is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the biology of the Acari. Acarologia publishes results of original and high quality research on all aspects of Acarology, including molecular biology, taxonomy, physiology, ecology, evolution, behaviour, biogeography, genetics, morphology and physiology. Applied acarology, including economic studies, plant parasites and biological control, and veterinary aspects, are also accepted.
All groups within the Acari are considered.
The journal aims to promote research and spread knowledge of this important group of arthropods. Four issues are published every year.
