Title of barley publications by yourself or your
colleagues which appeared in the years 1969 through
1986. Citations of papers in relatively inaccessible
journals are especially desired.
- Errors in the past issues (Volumes 1 through 12) are listed
in past issues. Any errors not listed in the past issues
will be listed in future issues. Editors appreciate
receiving information on errors or mistakes.

should be separated from other items to avoid confusion.
- Please prepare your manuscript in a similar way to papers
published in previous issues of BGN.

tables should be typed in final form, so that we can use
them without retyping. This will prevent making mistakes
and help editors very much; proof reading of complicated
tables is time consuming.
European contributors are asked to type complicated tables
and/or lists in a sheet size not exceeding 18 cm × 21 cm
with 3 cm margins on both side of the page. DO NOT type
on usual European letter paper (21 cm × 29.5 cm).

amount of time in correcting typographical errors, there
probably are still some mistakes and errors present. Some
of the mistakes and errors were in the original manuscripts.
We ask each contributor of an article to read his or her
own paper carefully and inform us of any errors or mistakes
the author may find. Sometimes one may be able to find
errors more easily in someone else's paper than his own.
We need your assistance in identifying those errors and
mistakes. We would appreciate your cooperation on this
matter for the improvement of BGN.
