An International Journal of Systematic Entomology
Founded in 1857 as Berliner Entomologische Zeitschrift, our journal Deutsche Entomologische Zeitschrift builds on a long tradition of disseminating knowledge on the systematics of insects. The first edition was published and edited by Ernst Gustav Kraatz. In the course of the first 150 years in the history of D.E.Z., more than 22,000 species, about 2 % of all known species of hexapods from all over the world have been described in the journal., thus contributing significantly to our knowledge of global biodiversity. Deutsche Entomologische Zeitschrift is dedicated to providing a high-quality forum to contribute to the documentation of insect species, their distribution, their properties, and their phylogenetic relationships.
All submitted manuscripts are subject to at least two external peer-reviews by leading specialists in the respective topic. Distinguished authorities form the international advisory board which guarantees the high scientific profile of the journal. Authors are provided with 25 reprints and a high-resolution pdf of their article with no charges.
Aims and scope
Deutsche Entomologische Zeitschrift is an international journal of systematic entomology. It publishes original research papers in English on the systematics, taxonomy, phylogeny, comparative morphology, and biogeography of insects. Other arthropods are also considered where of relevance to the biology of insects. The geographical scope of the journal is worldwide. Priority is given to revisional work and comprehensive studies of phylogenetic, biological or zoogeographical relevance. We also invite review articles pertaining to the systematics and biology of insects.
