Scope. The Proceedings accepts manuscripts describing research and observations in all areas of entomological study in Hawaii and the Pacific. Three types of article are commonly published in the Proceedings: original research papers, review articles, and scientific notes (short communications of no longer than four printed pages). Authors with questions about the suitability of a manuscript are encouraged to contact an editor:

Mark G. Wright:
telephone: (808) 956-7670;
(ecology, pest management, biological control, miscellaneous topics),

Or co-editors
Rodrigo Almeida
(vector ecology, insect symbionts microbiology, medical entomology),

Daniel Rubinoff
(taxonomy, systematics, insect conservation).

Electronic submission is strongly encouraged. Submit manuscripts with line and page numbering as a PDF file (preferred), or MSWord or WordPerfect file. Electronic submission expedites the review process. Authors may include a short list of potential reviewers.

Manuscripts. Manuscripts must be in English. Manuscripts should be typed single column, with double line spacing on one side of 8.5 x 11 inches or A4 paper with at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) margins on all sides. Number pages consecutively, beginning with the title page. Begin each of the following on a separate page and arrange in the following order: title page (including author names, affiliations, and complete addresses, including e-mail), abstract and key words (up to five), text, acknowledgments, literature cited, footnotes, tables, figure legends, and figures.
Abstract. Each paper must include an abstract that, in a single paragraph, provides a complete and accurate summary of the work. It should not exceed 250 words. On separate lines following the abstract should appear a short list of key words and running head.
Literature cited. Cited literature should be based on the name and year (Harvard) system, and conform to the following styles:

Tables. Tables should present only essential data. Place each table on a separate sheet. Do not use the "table" feature of a word processing application; use tabs to separate columns.
Illustrations. Copies of artwork or photographs only should be submitted; originals should accompany the paper after acceptance and final revision. All illustrations (halftones and line art) should be mounted on stiff board and be sized for reproduction onto the size of the printed page of the Proceedings (4.5 x 7 inches) with appropriate space for captions. When more than one halftone illustration or photograph is placed on one page, group all together and separate each with a thin white tape. Captions should be typed on a separate sheet. Graphs should be printed with a high quality laser printer or comparable printer. Electronically submitted graphs or illustrations may be embedded in the manuscript, or submitted as separate files (JPG, TIFF, BMP format). When submitting electronically, please list which files are included in your cover e-mail.
Acceptance of manuscripts. After peer review and editing, the author will be informed of acceptance or rejection of the manuscript. Upon acceptance, the author acknowledges transfer of copyright of the paper to the Hawaiian Entomological Society. Authors should submit a computer diskette containing the final version of their paper along with the final manuscript. Mac or PC format is acceptable using Word or WordPerfect software (Word preferred). If neither of these applications is available, simple text (ASCII) format is acceptable.
Page charges and reprints. Current page charges are $35.00 per printed page for non-members; $28.00 per page for members. Authors who request offprints will receive 100 offprints of their article at a cost of $10.00 per page.

Three copies of the manuscript and artwork (if sending hard copy) should be submitted to:
