X. Mailing list.
In preparation of manuscripts please read the following rules carefully
and follow the instructions.
Rules for Contributions to Barley Genetics Newsletter (BGN)
1. The information in this Newsletter is of an informal nature to stimulate
thought and to exchange ideas among barley geneticists. Before quoting
any statements in the BGN, contact the contributor(s) involved, with the
following exception decided at the Second International Barley Genetics
Symposium at Washington State University, Pullman, July 1969:
"With regard to symbols and stock designations, the Newsletter (BGN)
concerned with symbols, stock lists, and linkage maps may be cited without
2. Manuscripts should be written in English and should be brief.
3. Prepare all linkage maps and/or figures (photos and line drawings)
on a separate sheet from the text. This enables the editors to incorporate
these items in appropriate places in the BGN. The figures should be prepared
in the same way as the manuscript for journals. Line drawings and linkage
maps should be original, NOT Xerox copy.
4. Typewritten original manuscript and a carbon or Xerox copy
should be sent to the editor. The manuscript should be typed in double
space. Each paper should be prepared separately.
5. Manuscripts should be prepared carefully and proof-read after typed,
because the editors do not have responsibility for any error or mistake
even though editor makes corrections of an obvious error.
6. A limited number of black and white photographs will be accepted.
The photographs should be of good quality. The editorial committee reserves
the right to make selection if it is necessary. The number of photos should
be limited to a minimum. In order to save cost of reproduction and get
better quality, all photos will be reduced for reproduction in the Newsletter.
Therefore, please prepare your original picture larger than the size to
7. Lined figures: If you would like to keep the original figures, please
send a glossy photo of the original to the editor, but NOT a Xerox
8. Please give your complete mailing address including the name of the
country in all correspondence.
Send your manuscript before February 20, 1983 to:
Dr. T. Tsuchiya Department of Agronomy Colorado State University Fort
Collins, Colorado 80523 U.S.A.
I. 2. Supplemental guidelines for contributors of Barley Genetics
The following are additional instructions regarding the preparation
1. A limited number of black and white photographs will be accepted.
In order to save cost of reproduction and get better quality, all photos
will be reduced to one-half (1/2) for reproduction in the Newsletter. Therefore,
please prepare your original picture twice the size of the one to be
2. A new section will be established titled "List of Available Multiple
Marker Stocks". The Genetic Stock Center in Fort Collins, Colorado has
no intention of collecting and maintaining multiple marker stocks which
are collections from various cross combinations in your experiments. However,
some workers might be interested in using those stocks. Therefore, if you
send the stock number (if any), genotype, and other information to the
Editor, it will be compiled and published in BGN.
3. Reports on the activities from each research institution are of particular
interest to many research workers. Information on your research program
now underway and the plans for the near future will be highly appreciated.
This information to be published in BGN will help prevent duplicating the
conduct of similar or the same kind of experiments.
4. Letters to the Editors are welcome by all contributors. Please relate
your experience, express your opinions, comments, or suggestions in the
form of letters. They will be published in a section titled "Letters to
5. Please give your complete mailing address including the name of country.
The mailing list will be made based on this address.
6. All correspondence should be in English.
7. It would be of great assistance if, in addition to your research
notes, coordinator's report or others, you would send us: Titles of barley
publications by yourself or your colleagues which appeared in the years
1969 through 1983. Citations of papers in relatively inaccessible journals
are especially desired.
8. 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.
9. Correspondence regarding the Barley Genetics Newsletter should be
separated from other items to avoid confusion.
10. Please prepare your manuscript in a similar way to papers published
in previous issues of BGN.
11. Please type tables on a separate sheet. Some complicated 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 28 cm x 21 cm with 3 cm margins on both side
of the page.
12. MANUSCRIPT SHOULD BE PROOF-READ BEFORE IT IS SUBMITTED TO THE
13. ERRATA: Even though the editors have spent a considerable 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.
