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 permission".

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 be printed.

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 copy.

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 Newsletter.

The following are additional instructions regarding the preparation of manuscripts:

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 printed.

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 the Editors".

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.


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.
