The Journal of Biological control is one of the best Journals published by the Society for biocontrol advancement.  The journal is published half yearly and is a leading journal that publishes original articles on all aspects relating to biological suppression of pests (insects, mites, vertebrates, pathogens and weeds) of crop plants and animal diseases) using the predators, parasitoids,  fungus, bacteria, virus and other microbials.

The articles on general biology , epidemology, ecology of the natural enemies, mass production techniques, screening of pesticides to the bioagents, conservation technologies using different methods , bio-intensive pest management studies etc ., are considered for publication.
