Korean Journal of Applied Entomology (KJAE) was split from the Korean Journal of Plant Protection in 1988, which was originally launched in 1962. This journal publishes scientific articles on entomology, nematology, acarology, invertebrates and their related subjects. The usual prerequisites for publication will be originality, clarity and significance as relevant to a better understanding of those disciplines mentioned above. The types of publication are original article, short communication, review & invited review, invited article, and special contribution. A short communication is for a concise, but independent report representing a significant contribution to KJAE. It may include hypothesis or basic data for further studies with not requiring complete final conclusions. Also, it can include rapid communication and technical note. A technical note is an article giving a brief description of a technique or procedure as well as referring to the modification of a technique, procedure or equipment of interest to KJAE. A rapid communication is a brief report with completed structure for the purpose of rapid announcements to readers. It should be no more than 2500 words, and could include two figures or tables. Short communications are also send to peer review. This journal is published with articles written in Korean or English quarterly (March, June, September and December) by the Korean Society of Applied Entomology. The society publishes another quarterly journal, Journal of Asia – Pacific Entomology, with articles written in English.
