Another Gold Medal for the Journal of Apicultural Research!

At the 44th International Apicultural Congress (Apimondia), held in Daejeon, South Korea, which closed today, IBRA was awarded a Gold Medal for the Journal of Apicultural Research. This follows previous Gold Medals won at Apimondia 2007 in Melbourne, Australia, and Apimondia 2013 in Kiev, Ukraine. 

The Journal of Apicultural Research is a refereed scientific journal dedicated to bringing the best research on bees. The Journal of Apicultural Research publishes original research articles, original theoretical papers, notes, comments and authoritative reviews on scientific aspects of the biology, ecology, natural history, conservation and culture of all types of bee (superfamily Apoidea). The ISI Impact Factor (2014) is 1.895 and the ISI 5-year Impact Factor is 1.942, meaning that JAR is now ranked 16th out of 92 in the category “Entomology”. 

The Journal of Apicultural Research was established by the International Bee Research Association in 1962. From January 2015 publication and distribution of the journal was taken over by the Taylor & Francis Group, but it continues to be edited by IBRA’s existing team of editors in Argentina, Germany, Greece, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and the USA.  

IBRA Science Director and Senior Editor of the Journal of Apicultural Research says: “We are delighted at this recognition of the quality of our journal. As we move forwards with our new publishing partner, Taylor & Francis, we will strive to maintain the independence and objectivity of the science that we publish, and look forward to serving the bee science community”.
