We often have several pages to fill in each issue of Insecta Mundi. This is due to the practice we follow of starting each full length article on the right hand page. This provides a better appearing separate. As logic will predict, about half of the articles end on a right hand page, thus leaving the last left hand page blank. A blank page in a scientific journal is the same as throwing away money! So, we scramble around trying to find something to fill these pages, often with little success: better to leave it blank some say.
