CONTRIBUTIONS MAY INCLUDE:
FORMATTING & SUBMITTING MANUSCRIPTS:
Follow the format of previous volumes (47-49) of the Newsletter
in coordinating and preparing your contribution, particularly
for state, station, contributor names, and headings. Limited editing
is done. Use a wordprocessing program, preferrably Word, 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
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 email@example.com.
Beginning with volume 47 of the Newsletter, we will
be able to print illustrations provided that they are sent as
JPG or GIF files. GIF files are the preferred file type. Please
include these illustrations as separate attachments to a regular
contribution and submit by E-mail or on diskette. If you would
like me to consider your illustration for the front cover, please
The primary method of distribution of Volume 50 will be CD-ROM
in the HTML format. A hard copy will be sent only if requested
by 1 March, 2004, and will cost $40.
The Annual Wheat Newsletter will continue to
be available (Vol. 37-49) 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 2004.
