Guidelines to Contributors
The Annals of Plant Protection Sciences is a half yearly international journal publishing original research articles, short communications and reviews (with prior approval of the title reflecting substantial contributions of the author) on all aspects of plant protection sciences, such as Entomology, Nematology, Plant Pathology, Weed Science, Forestry, Agricultural Chemicals and so on. At least 50 per cent of the authors should be a member of the Society of Plant Protection Sciences.
All manuscripts should be typed in English in double space throughout, on A-4 size paper with 2.5 cm margin all around and following the format of the journal. Tables and figure legends should be given on separate pages. Either figures or tables, not both, should be given for the same set of data. Figures, illustrations or photographs should be of good quality and suitable for final reduction allowing space for legends. The scientific norms and ethics should be followed while preparing the manuscripts. As far as possible trade names of products should be avoided. Metric units of weights and measures should be used. Only photocopies of illustrations should be sent along with the manuscripts and the originals should be sent immediately after receipt of intimation of the acceptance of the paper after review by relevant specialists. Write the e-mail below the address, if available. Send C.D. along with hard copy for quick processing.
References cited in the text should be listed alphabetically; for format please see the latest issue of the journal.
The manuscripts (MSS) of reviews, research articles and short communications should not normally exceed 20, 10 and 4 typed pages, respectively. The authors should send the MSS, in duplicate, addressed to The Chief Editor, Annals of Plant Protection Sciences, Society of Plant Protection Sciences, Division of Nematology, IARI, New Delhi-110 012, India with a clear understanding that the same is to be published exclusively in the Annals of Plant Protection Sciences. The Editorial Board reserves the right to suitably modify, accept or reject the MSS in view of the reviewer's advice.
The Society of Plant Protection Sciences strives to bear of the cost of publication. However, in view of financial stringencies, to partially meet the printing cost, a uniform charge of Rs. 300 (US $ 50) per article will be charged. Reprints, as demanded after acceptance of the paper, will be supplied at subsidized current price varying according to the pages and number ordered.
