Focus and Scope

Redia supports its long history of basic and applied research in entomology and invertebrate zoology in the field of crop and forest tree protection responding at the same time to the increasing need of innovation and technological improvement.

The Editors will continue to give attention to fundamental studies on taxonomy and biology of insects, mites and nematodes in agricultural and forest ecosystems, also by means of the molecular biology (biosystematics), and to accept works on the applied research to prevent and control the pest infestations including biological control and biotechnologies.

Generally speaking, within its scope, the journal is aimed to give infor,mation on studies and researches on basic and applied zoology and entomology in the field of crop and forest protection, in the frame of an international and interdisciplinary scientific system.

At the same time, to give by the journal also practical information to the field operators in agriculture and forests is one of the most remarkable and demanded purposes.

Peer Review Process

Peer review in Redia is designed to ensure that the research published is "god science".

Redia accept papers on basic research and general works on cytology, histology, morphology,taxonomy, biology, ecology, ethology and biosystematics of many of those invertebrate animals either able to affect cultivated and forest plante or as important components of the terrestrial ecosystems.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Redia is an Italian periodical started in 1903 (with the subtitle "Journal of Entomology") thanks to Prof. Antonio Berlese who became Director of the "Agricultural Entomology Station" of Florence after Prof. A. Targioni Tozzetti, zoologist and founder of the Station in 1875.

History

Redia was named in honour of Francesco Redi, the famous XVII century Tuscan entomologist. Since its beginning, the periodical accepted pepers dealing with researches only in the field of agricultural entomology (insects and mites).

At the end of the 2nd  World-War the periodical started with the second series (vol. XXXI, 1946). In 1969, Redia started again with the third series (new subtitle "Journal of Zoology") when the old Station changed in the new "Experimental Institute for Agricultural Zoology" (ISZA).

Since 1969, Redia accepts papers dealing also with urban zoology and nematology. Then, it has been publishing works on applied zoology, in agricultural and forest fields, to achieve knowledge in the pest management and control of many of the noxious invertebrate phytophagous organisms.

Furthermore, the journal has more and more emphasized the improvement and evolution of means to control the most harmful species in the agricultural and forest ecosystems, especially in the field of the natural antagonists.

Redia throughout its long time of  life has been publishing also basic researches and general works on cytology, histology, morphology, taxonomy, biology, ecology, ethology and biosystematics of many of those invertebrate animals either able to affect cultivated and forest plants or as important components of the terrestrial ecosystems.

In 2003, its centenary year, Redia changed its format in A4-double columns, and increased remarkably its editorial board reaching n. 32 components in 2007. Starting with the vol. XC (2007),  Redia will be published by the Research Centre for Agrobiology and Pedology (ABP) of the Agricultural Research Council (CREA).
