Originally begun as the Coccidologists' Newsletter (1973-1982), The Scale (1983-present) serves as an information source for those individuals working with or interested in the Coccoidea. The original intent of The Scale was not as a refereed journal and it has remained consistent with that intent. Within the various issues are news about workers current research, upcoming meetings and events, citations of recent literature, and even necrology.

Some changes (i.e. font size, layout, etc.) occur in the HTML versions of The Scale. However, the wording has remained the same as the published versions. Although The Scale is currently not fully searchable, we would encourage readers to use the "Find" feature in the "Edit" menu of their browser.
