The Journal of Apicultural Science is a scientific, English-language journal that publishes both original research articles and review papers covering all aspects of the life of bees (superfamily Apoidea) and broadly defined apiculture. The main subject areas include:
- bee biology
- bee genetics
- bee breeding
- pathology and toxicology
- pollination and bee botany
- bee products
- management, technologies, and economy
- solitary bees and bumblebees
The Journal of Apicultural Science has been published by the National Institute of Horticultural Research and Apicultural Research Association twice a year in paper and online versions since 2001. The Journal is a continuation of the former scientific periodical "Pszczelnicze Zeszyty Naukowe," issued from 1957 to 2000. Archive issues of Pszczelnicze Zeszyty Naukowe and issues of the Journal of Apicultural Science published since 2001 to 2011 are available at the original Journal's website (www.jas.org.pl). The paper version is available at www.jas.org.pl (subscriptions). After acceptance, articles are given DOI numbers, assigned to successive volumes and issues, and published online by Sciendo (sciendo.com/journal/JAS), which has used the open access model since 2012.
Sciendo archives the contents of this journal in Portico - digital long-term preservation service of scholarly books, journals and collections.
