To allow good and uniform reproduction, all manuscripts must be submitted as a WORD file.
Main formatting of the manuscripts:
The international rules of nomenclature should be used for all organisms. Full species names including the authority (e.g. Acanthoscelides obtectus (Say)) should be given the first time that an organism is mentioned. Authorities for the names should be given in full except in the cases of Linnaeus and Fabricius, which may be abbreviated to L. and F., respectively. Other than at the beginning of a sentence names may subsequently be abbreviated, (e.g. to Acanthoscelides obtectus or to A. obtectus) where no ambiguity may arise. Common names should be avoided in the title.
Common names of pesticides, which have been accepted by the International Standards Organization (ISO), should be used wherever possible. In other situations, a name used by a renowned national body (Entomological Society of America, INRA, etc.) should be used. The full chemical name of pesticides, which lack an ISO name, should be given when the compound is first mentioned. Trade names for active ingredients are preferable to those for particular formulations.
The following symbols and abbreviations may be used as appropriate. Days (d), hours (h), moisture content (m.c.), relative humidity (r.h.). When using any abbreviation (except % and oC) leave a single space between the numeral and following character. Avoid fractions. Numbers should be written in full where they occur at the beginning of a sentence and where they are not associated with units (thus: Ten beetles in 5 months).
References: The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following the text of the manuscript. Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work. The manuscript should be carefully checked to ensure that the spelling of authors' names and dates are exactly the same in the text as in the reference list.
Literature citations in text are to be as follows:
References should be given in the following form:
Gamelin FX, Baquet G, Berthoin S, Thevenet D, Nourry C, Nottin S, Bosquet L (2009) Effect of high intensity intermittent training on heart rate variability in prepubescent children. Eur J Appl Physiol 105:731-738.
Ideally, the names of all authors should be provided, but the usage of “et al” in long author lists will also be accepted:
