Manuscripts should be written in English and be brief. Each paper should be prepared separately, with the title and the authors' names and addresses at the top of the first page. For each paper to be included in Barley Genetics Newsletter Volume 36, submit a file to the Technical Editor in one of the following ways (in order of preference):


1. As an attachment to an e-mail message

2. A 3.5" diskette or CD; include also one high quality printed copy

3. High-quality paper copy (acceptable only in unusual circumstances)


Instructions for file preparation

Text and tables for each article can be in one file, but place each figure in a separate file. Name these files with your initials, a manuscript number, and "txt" or "fig" (in the case of separate files for text and figures), and a number for each figure (in the case of separate files). For example, the files for a manuscript plus two figures from Phil Bregitzer would be: pb1txt.wpd, pb1fig1.gif, and pb1fig2.gif .


File Formats for Text and Tables: Preferred: Word or WordPerfect or Word, PC-compatible formatting. Macintosh formats are not acceptable


Please keep formatting simple and consistent with that of BGN 35.  Use Times New Roman Font, 12 pt, with both right and left justification, except for the title and author information and tables, which should be centered. Files should be formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper with 1" margins for both text and tables. Please use only tabs and hard returns in the preparation of text files. Tables must be prepared using the table feature of your word processing program, and not prepared using tabs. Please do not add additional lines to your table except with the table formatting tools in your word processor. Please use center justification for tables, and not "full" justification (i.e. left and right justification, that is used for text). Figures can be submitted in any common format but should not require color for interpretation.
