The manuscripts may cover any topic in the areas of basic biology, ecology, taxonomy and systematics (classic or molecular), genetics and molecular biology, epidemiology and control (management), and use of nematodes as environmental indicators or as biological control agents. Manuscripts may also be considered for publication if they deal with Nematology teaching, extension and public outreach education.
