MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION

How to submit a manuscript

The presented scientific contributions will be published as conference proceedings in the IOBC-WPRS Bulletin and delivered on the website of IOBC-WPRS. Authors should prepare their manuscripts following IOBC guidelines (see instructions bellow). In order to allow good and uniform reproduction, all manuscripts must be submitted in MS Word. To facilitate the preparation of manuscripts a template can be downloaded in the following button:

SUBMIT MANUSCRIPT

 

Instructions: full paper

 

 

The papers should consist of:

  • Abstract
  • Key words
  • Introduction
  • Material and methods
  • Results and discussion (separated or combined)
  • Acknowledgements (if necessary)
  • References

 

Instructions for the papers:

  1. Paper-format: A4
  2. Left and right margins of the text: 2.5 cm,  Upper margin: 3.0 cm,  Lower margin: 2.5 cm, This results in a printing area of 16 cm x 23.7 cm
  3. Line spacing: 1
  4. Font: “Times New Roman” or “Times”
  5. All titles and subtitles should be flush left
  6. Font of the title: 15 pt, bold
  7. Font of the abstract: 11 pt
  8. Font of subtitles (sections): 13 pt, bold
  9. Font of the running text: 12 pt (except titles and abstract)
  10. No hyphenation in the text
  11. Justification of the text
  12. Make sure that the first lines of all paragraphs (except for the paragraph that follows a title) are indented with a [Tab] command (0.8 cm). Do not use spaces instead of tabs and indents. Do not repeatedly use Standard-Tab stops
  13. Scientific names of plants and animals in Italics
  14. The authors’ names should be typed in the normal font (not in capitals or any other face, not bold) in the text as well as in the “References”
  15. Layout as shown in the template
  16. Do not number the pages; the page numbering is done when the bulletins are being compiled
     

 

Tables & figures:

  1. Incorporate tables and figures into the manuscript. Make sure that they are not linked to a file on your own computer, which makes them disappear in the manuscript when it is sent away
  2. Two free lines have to precede and follow each figure or table
  3. Make your tables with the [Table]-function. Do not use repeated [Standard]-Tab’s or spaces Legends should be mentioned above the tables and under the figures. In the figures and tables the smallest font should be 10 pt. Smaller fonts may become unreadable Tables and figures should be centered
  4. To differentiate between parts of a diagram or between curves in a figure, use clearly different colours or shading in different patterns. Make sure that the patterns as well can be clearly discerned from each other. Please avoid in the figures large uniform black or grey areas, fill out the columns in a figure with a pattern or a colour
  5. Coloured photographs are welcome, but they shouldn’t require too much memory capacity (not more than 1 MB each) The figures, too, should not require too much memory capacity.
  6. If they need more than 1 MB, they will often have to be downsized which may be followed by a lack of quality

For journal abbreviations use the Web of Science list

If you cite authors in the text, please order them according to the date of publication, first dates first, e.g. (Erwin & Ribeiro, 1996; Kuldau & Yates, 2000; McCracken et al., 2003), or “… Erwin & Ribeiro (1996) and McCracken et al. (2003) have shown…” 

The references are written in Times Roman 12 pt with hanging indents by 0.8 cm in the first line. References are listed alphabetically. In the case of several references by the same author, give single-author references first, e.g. Smith (1996) before Smith et al. (1994), but Smith (1993) before Smith (1994). Please follow the examples given below for journal articles, book chapters and entire books and the examples in the bulletin manuscript.
