Journal of Melittology

A Journal of Bee Biology, Ecology, Evolution, & Systematics

The Journal of Melittology is an international, open access journal that seeks to rapidly disseminate the results of research conducted on bees (Apoidea: Anthophila) in their broadest sense. Our mission is to promote the understanding and conservation of wild and managed bees and to facilitate communication and collaboration among researchers and the public worldwide. The journal encourages submissions in any area of melittology, particularly works on non-Apis bees. Each article receives a DOI. All nomenclatural articles are registered in ZooBank and conform to the latest standards of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, and the journal is archived in PORTICO (

The Journal is best viewed in FireFox or Chrome, and is indexed in Google Scholar.

NOTES: The maximum size of papers processed via the normal means is presently 38 printed pages. Larger works are now possible but will take considerably longer time to process by our volunteer staff and so will experience longer turn-around times. Please check out our Announcements page for further information. —The Management.
