Notice to FES Members - Changes in Format and Page Charges Beginning with Volume 98 (2015)
At the 97th annual meeting (2014), the Executive Board and members attending the business meeting endorsed a reformatting of the Florida Entomologist. The most obvious changes will be a larger page size and color cover. Inside, however, will be numerous style changes designed to give the journal a more contemporary look, and to reduce costs of production. These include a font that will improve readability for online readers, and a simpler method of listing references. For those publishing in the journal, be advised that the publication costs will be modified as well. The base page charge will be increased from $58 to $93 per page, but the additional charges for tables, figures and on-line publication will be eliminated; the latter reductions together with the use of a much larger page will result in slightly smaller average costs. In addition, the journal will offer much lower costs for printed color images (reduced from $900 to $260 per page), and the option to link to color on-line material in place of black and white printed images ($60 per image). The option to hyperlink to supplemental material on-line remains.
