An Invitation to Contributors - Author Guidelines for Bradleya

Contributions for publication in Bradleya are invited in English on any aspect of succulent plant study involving original research, and not already published or accepted for publication elsewhere. Authors are reminded that copyright must be their own, and that, for example, maps must be redrawn to a high standard to avoid infringement.

They are asked to study the format and conventions of presentation in a recent issue of Bradleya and follow them as far as possible in order to minimise the amount of editing needed later. A summary is requested at the start of the article, including all taxonomic innovations, if any, listed alphabetically by name. A German translation of the summary will be provided by the editor.

Authors will receive a printed copy of the published journal and a PDF of their finally paginated paper.

Illustrations should preferably be high resolution digital images in either JPEG or TIFF format. Colour transparencies, drawings and maps are accepted at the owner's risk, bearing in mind the hazards of postal services, but care will be taken to ensure their safe return after use.

In common with other scientific journals, manuscripts submitted for Bradleya will be examined by at least one referee before final acceptance. The editor reserves the right to refuse papers without explanation, to make minor textual changes without reference to the author, and to place an article submitted for Bradleya in the BCSS Journal CactusWorld, or vice versa.

Authors will receive proofs and are asked to return them with corrections as soon as possible. While every effort will be made to get papers into print as swiftly as we can, no guarantee for a particular issue of Bradleya can be made, although preference is given to articles received early, requiring minimal rewriting, highly topical or including taxonomic innovations. If sufficient material is to hand, the aim in future is to publish Bradleya in May or June so the deadline for articles is the end of March.

Manuscripts should be submitted to the editor: Graham Charles, Briars Bank, Fosters Bridge, Ketton, Stamford, PE9 3BF England. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Telephone: +44 (0) 1780 720287

Text should be submitted in the preferred MS Word format via email or, if too large to email, on a formatted CD-ROM or DVD-ROM disc along with all illustrations and line drawings etc. Any graphic files, for example for charts or graphs, should also be included in any common format but please include a printed hard copy in case access/conversion is not possible. If illustrations are required to be placed near to particular parts of the text, this should be indicated on the hard copy. This positioning cannot be guaranteed, however, but every effort will be made to comply with a request.
