The Journal

Apidologie is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the biology of insects belonging to the superfamily Apoidea (Michener, 1944), the term "biology" being used in the broader sense. The journal publishes original articles, review articles and scientific notes in English. The main topics include: behavior, ecology, pollination, genetics, physiology, toxicology and pathology. Systematic research can also be submitted to the extent that it concerns the Apoidea. Also accepted are research papers on the rearing, exploitation and practical use of Apoidea and their products, as far as they make a clear contribution to the understanding of bee biology. Papers which are only of descriptive kind and of local interest are not accepted.

Apidologie was founded in 1970 by merging the journal Annales de l’Abeille, which had its first issue published in 1958 by INRA, with Zeitschrift für Bienenforschung that had its origins in 1950, and which was published by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Bienenkunde e.V. in association with the Deutsche Imkerbund (DIB). Apidologie is now an hybrid open-access journal own by INRAE and the DIB.

Since 2011, the journal is published by Springer:
