Even though Southern Cooperative Series Bulletins will only be published in an electronic format
on the World Wide Web, the following items should still be considered:
Style. For the entire series, standards of style and word usage will
be based on the Council of Biology Editors Style Manual, Chicago Style Manual,
and Websters New Collegiate Dictionary. In cases of words not present in
Websters New Collegiate Dictionary, the Websters Unabridged Dictionary, latest
edition, may be substituted. In cases where words have different spellings due
to origins and usage (e.g., color or colour), the more frequently accepted
spelling (usually first in Websters) will be followed.
To assist in style, word usage, and other publication preparation aspects, it is
desirable that a writer-editor be selected to attend those technical committee
meetings where cooperative series bulletins are being initiated or are under
Issues. Each cooperative series bulletin will be published as a
separate issue. In cases where a series of related topics (each a separate
bulletin) requires publication, titles may be used whereby a portion of the
title is constant and each member of the sub-series is designated by a Roman
numeral and its specific title (example: Marketing Fruit in the Southern
United States. I. Apples)
Authors. Authors for cooperative series bulletins will be only those
individuals who actually write the material as it appears in the bulletin.
Manuscripts can be written entirely by all authors, or authors may be credited
with specific chapters or other designated sections. The senior author is
listed first with the others following in alphabetical order. If all authors
are considered co-authors, they are listed alphabetically by state.
Foreword (or Preface). The foreword should include the following:
- A listing of all cooperating states and agencies, with the publishing
state or agency identified separately and the others following in alphabetical order.
- A listing
of the technical committee membership.
- Acknowledgements or other recognition deemed appropriate by the technical committee.
By adhering to all the above publication standards, our readers can be
assured that our electronic information is reliable and holds as much
weight as a printed publication during a researcher's promotion process.
