Supplemental guidelines for contributors of Barley Genetics Newsletter

The following are additional instructions regarding the preparation of manuscripts.

  1. 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. A list of Barley Genetics Stocks was published in Volume 16 of BGN.

  2. 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 may help prevent duplication of similar or the same kind of experiments.

  3. 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 selection titled 'Letters to the Editors".

  4. Please give your complete mailing address including the name of country. The mailing list will be made based on this address.

  5. All correspondence should be in ENGLISH.

  6. 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 1989. Citations of papers in relatively inaccessible journals are especially desired.

  7. Errors in the past issues (Volumes 1 through 18) are listed in past issues. Any errors not listed in the past issues can be listed in future issues. Editors appreciate receiving information on errors or mistakes.

  8. Correspondence regarding the Barley Genetics Newsletter should be separated from other items to avoid confusion.

  9. Please prepare your manuscript in a similar way to papers published in previous issues of BGN.

  10. 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; proofreading of complicated tables is time consuming. European contributors are asked to type complicated tables and/or lists in a sheet size not exceeding 18 cm x 21 cm with 3 cm margins on both sides of the page. DO NOT type on usual European letter paper (21 cm x 29.5 cm).


  12. 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.
