X. VOLUME 52 MANUSCRIPT GUIDELINES

Manuscript guidelines for the Annual Wheat Newsletter, volume 52. The required format for Volume 52 of the Annual Wheat Newsletter will be similar to Volume 51 and previous editions.

CONTRIBUTIONS MAY INCLUDE:

  • Current activities on your projects.
  • New cultivars and germ plasm released.
  • Special reports of particular interest, new ideas, etc., normally not acceptable for scientific journals.
  • A list of recent publications.
  • News: new positions, advancements, retirements, necrology.
  • Wheat stocks; lines for distribution, special equipment, computer software, breeding procedures, techniques, etc.

FORMATTING & SUBMITTING MANUSCRIPTS:

Follow the format in volume 44-51 of the Newsletter in coördinating and preparing your contribution, particularly for state, station, contributor names, and headings. Limited editing is done. Use MS Word software or send an RTF file that can be converted. Use Times 12 CPI and 1.0" (2.5 cm) margins. DO NOT use the table settings or column setting functions, create tables with tabs and spaces. Double-space the text of your contribution if you must use a typewriter.

The Annual Wheat Newsletter will continue to be available (Vol. 37-51) through the Internet on GrainGenes, the USDA­ARS Wheat Database at http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/ggpages/awn/ and Internet gopher access at "greengenes.cit.cornell.edu".

DISTRIBUTION:

The primary method of distribution of Volume 52 will be CD-ROM in HTML format. These files can be read with any internet browser. A hard copy will be sent ONLY if payment of $40 USD is received by 1 March, 2006.

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.

COST:

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 $25 to $50 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 2006. The address for contibutions is Dr. Brett Carver, Department of Agronomy, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK 74078, U.S.A.
