Guest Editorial: A new start for the Journal of Apicultural Research
Thomas E Rinderer, Benjamin P Oldroyd And H Allen Sylvester
The Journal of Apicultural Research has been IBRA's journal for reporting experimental science for almost 30 years. The Journal's very first volume carried Woyke's classic paper on diploid drones, and every volume since has contained important contributions to scientific literature. Because of the high quality of the Journal's papers, it has come to be respected as a prestigious outlet for reporting scientific studies of the biology, ecology, natural history and culture of Apoidea in general and Apis species in particular. Indeed, many scientists have come to respect the Journal as the flagship of apicultural journals.
