Manuscript guidelines for the Annual Wheat Newsletter, volume 47. The required format for Volume 48 of the Annual Wheat Newsletter will be similar to Volume 47.



Follow the volume 46 Newsletter in coordinating and preparing your contribution, particularly for state, station, contributor names, and headings. Limited editing is done. Use the Word Perfect or Word programs, or send an ASCII file that can be converted. Please be sure to include a hard copy of the contribution in case of disk problems. Use Courier 12 CPI and margins of 0.5" (left) and 0.8" (right). Table problems can be avoided by not using the table settings or column setting functions, just tabs and spaces to create. Double-space the text of your contribution if you must use a typewriter. If possible, avoid the use of special characters (i.e., tildes, Greek letters, etc.).

All text will be entered in computer files; therefore, please submit manuscript in any of the above formats. Mail a file on a disk to John Raupp, Department of Plant Pathology, Throckmorton Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan KS 66506-5502. If submitting by e-mail, send contributions to raupp@ksu.edu.


Beginning with volume 47 of the Newsletter, we will be able to print illustrations. I preferthat these files are submitted in GIF format, although JPEG and TIF files will be acceptable. Please include these illustrations as separate attachments to a regular contribution and submit by E-mail or on diskette.


The primary method of distribution of Volume 48 will be CD-ROM in the HTML format. A hard copy will be sent only if requested by 1 March, 2002 and will cost $40.

The Annual Wheat Newsletter will continue to be available (Vol. 37-47) through the Internet on the USDA-ARS Wheat Database and Internet gopher access at greengenes.cit.cornell.edu.


The cost of publishing the Annual Wheat Newsletter is financed by voluntary contributions from individuals, commercial companies, international programs, and organizations with a direct or indirect interest in wheat. Funds on hand and contributions have been insufficient to pay for hard copies.

In the interest of remaining solvent, the NWIC has approved future distribution primarily by computer diskette. We are asking that you renew your contribution or, if you have not contributed in the past, to join the growing list of contributors. Contributions from individuals in the range of $15 to $30 play a significant role in financing the Newsletter. An increase in the number of individual contributors is very important, and we are confident that, with continued corporate support, we will be able to meet our financial obligations in 2001.
