Great visibility to your research starting from the abstract!

Abstracts for the 19th European Carabidologists Meeting will be published online in the journal ARPHA Conference Abstracts (ACA). It is a novel, open access, human- and machine-readable platform designed to assist conference organisers and participants in authoring, submission, peer review, editorial management, publication and dissemination of conference abstracts in any field of science, published with DOI in semantic HTML, XML and PDF formats.

Manuscripts intended for submission to ACA, should be written in the collaborative online ARPHA Writing Tool.

A new collection in the ACA online journal entitled "Carabids in extreme environments. 19th European Carabidologists Meeting" was created.

- Log in at the journal’s website (ACA).

- Create a new Conference abstract manuscript via the ARPHA Writing Tool by clicking the "Start a Conference Abstract" button on the journal’s homepage.
