Symposium: Advances towards developing innovative tools and approaches for sustainable management of fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda)
call closes when slots are filled
Native to the Americas, the fall armyworm is a major pest of maize and other cereals that recently invaded Sub-Saharan Africa, arrived in India in 2018, and could spread throughout the rest of Asia to become arguably one of the greatest threats to global food security. In recent years, numerous research efforts have been undertaken globally to identify sustainable solutions for managing this invasive pest. This symposium aims to highlight the threat posed by fall armyworm on a global scale and give an overview of the available science-based technologies being developed to control the pest.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
