Arthropod Management Tests (formerly Insecticide and Acaricide Tests) is an editor-reviewed publication that publishes short reports on preliminary and routine screening tests for management of arthropods that may be harmful (e.g., pests and disease vectors of plants, animals, and humans) or beneficial (e.g., parasitoids, predators and diseases of pests, honey bees, silkworm). Pest management methods reported in this publication may be those using chemical pesticides as well as other materials such as insect growth regulators, semiochemicals (e.g., pheromones, kairomones), traps, bio-control agents, pest-resistant plants and animals.

As of January 2015, Arthropod Management Tests is fully open access. Starting in January 2016, Arthropod Management Tests began to publish papers continuously instead of on an annual basis. Moving forward, papers will be reviewed and published throughout the year instead of once per year.

The publication is divided into the following sections:
Section A: Pome Fruits
Section B: Stone Fruits
Section C: Small Fruits
Section D: Citrus, Nuts and other Tree Fruits
Section E: Vegetable Crops
Section F: Field & Cereal Crops
Section G: Ornamentals & Turf

Section H: Forest & Shade Trees
Section I: Postharvest Products
Section J: Urban, Industrial and Structural
Section K: Medical and Veterinary
Section L: Laboratory Bioassays
Section M: Plant & Animal Resistance

The publication has an Editor-in-Chief and Section Editors who are volunteers from among the ESA membership. The Editor-in-Chief applies for the position and is appointed by the ESA Governing Board based on a recommendation from the journal's editorial board. Section Editors are recommended by the Editor-in-Chief and approved by the journal's editorial board. The usual term for editors is five years with an option for renewal. Editors are responsible for the review and acceptance or rejection of manuscripts submitted for publication and can recommend changes in editorial style and policies.
