Review Processes for Pest-related Publications

Pest-management publications have multi-step review processes to ensure that all pesticide recommendations are consistent with current regulations. The UC IPM and UC ANR Publishing units manage the review of these publications by internal and external experts, with additional oversight from the UC ANR Associate Editor panel and the UC ANR Office of Pesticide Information and Coordination (OPIC).

Each of the three main categories of publications dealing with pests has a distinct development, review and production process, detailed at the links below:

Pest Notes Development, Review and Production Process. For more information, contact Karey Windbiel-Rojas

Review and Production Process for UC ANR Publications (books, 7000-series publications, 8000-series publications) that include pesticide recommendations.  For more information, contact Jim Downing
