Exceptionally, papers concerning representatives of other terrestrial invertebrates are published as well. As well as original scientific articles, the following are published: short scientific communications, review articles, professional papers, comments, letters to the editor and from the editor, bibliographies, biographies, book reviews and reports concerning the work of the Society.
