The Journal of Entomological and Acarological Research (JEAR), formerly the Bollettino di Zoologia Agraria e di Bachicoltura of the Institute of Entomology of the Università degli Studi, Milano, was founded in 1928 by Remo Grandori. Thereafter, Minos Martelli and Luciano Süss hold the direction of the Journal until December 2011. In January 2012 the Editor decided for the new open-access on-line version of JEAR.
