Notes for Contributors
Intending authors are advised to study papers similar to their own in recent issues of the journal, and to follow as closely as possible the layout and style, capitalization and labelling of figures. The editor will be pleased to advise on the suitability or presentation of any manuscript prior to submission. All papers are subject to peer review and may be returned to the author for modification as a result of reviewers’ reports. Manuscripts are acknowledged on receipt and if acceptable proofs are sent without further communication. Minor editorial alterations may be made without consulting the author. Papers submitted should not have been published elsewhere and should not be currently under consideration by another journal.
Contributions should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief, in digital format (MS Word) as an e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
Nomenclature: should be based on the most recently revised check-lists, or on a more recent authoritative work. Authors of scientific names should not be abbreviated and, together with the original date of publication, must be placed in parentheses when required.
Please keep formatting to a minimum. Indents to first lines of a paragraph should not be made by tabs or spacing. Papers other than short field/collecting notes should include a brief abstract and keywords at the beginning. Generic and specific names should be in italics, and authorities given for all groups, including plants, on first mention. Generic names should be given in full on first mention (or where confusion might occur) and by initial letter only with specific names thereafter. Specific names should not be abbreviated even if followed by a subspecific name. Scientific names should follow the usage recommended in a standard recent catalogue or check-list. Works used in identification should be cited, as should the names of specialists who have verified the identity of material. Localities should be given in full with the National Grid Reference or equivalent. Where previous names of countries are cited from old data the modern equivalent should also be given. Numbers under 10 should be in words except in a strictly numerical context. Measurements should be metric and follow the SI system (Système International d’Unités), with imperial equivalents in parentheses, where appropriate. No space should be left between the value and the unit, eg. 10m, 2km. Abbreviations indicating new taxa or nomenclatorial changes should be in the form gen. n., sp. n., comb. n., stat. n., syn. nov., etc. References, in alphabetical order, should be in the form:

Journal titles should be given in full and in italics. The full page run of a paper must be cited. If a paper has more than three authors, it should be cited as ‘first author’s name et al.’ in the body of the text.
Line drawings should be sent electronically to email@example.com. Please send these as tiff files with minimum resolution of 600dpi and at 100% of final size. If this is not possible, then line drawings should be submitted to the publisher in permanent black ink on good quality white drawing paper or Bristol board, larger than the intended printed size (but not greater than x2) with clear labelling.
Photographs – colour images where possible (although they may be published in black and white) should be sent as tiff files; at least 300dpi resolution and at 100% of final size. If sent as photographs they should be glossy prints, of good contrast and lightly numbered on the back. Scales should be indicated. Please do not embed figures in a word document, but send all digital images separately at the resolutions mentioned above. Figures should be numbered consecutively. Legends should be listed at the end of the paper.
Galley proofs will be sent to authors for scrutiny, but only essential corrections should be made at this stage. Any major changes made at this stage are chargeable to the author.
Twenty-five free offprints and/or a pdf file are supplied of all main articles for the author’s personal use. Additional copies may be ordered at a cost when proofs are returned. Reprints of short field notes appearing in small print are not supplied free but may be purchased if specially requested when returning the proofs.
