Scientific Notes (700 Words) are brief reports for publication in the Proceedings of the Florida State Horticultural Society.
The idea is that the author(s) found something of interest and will publish a longer refereed paper later. In the case of an Extension author, this could be for a program that may be of interest to other people.
Rather than submitting a complete abstract, the author should submit a 1-2 line description of what will be presented.
- Affiliation(s) (complete mailing address[es])
- Suggestions for future direction
- Literature Cited is recommended, but not mandatory unless paper(s) are cited
Page limit: 1 printed page, with the editor cutting it off when she/he reaches the word limit or the author can edit to the correct page length beforehand. Note that there is a charge of $75 per page for inclusion in Proceedings.
The recommended word count is around 700 words (use: file>properties>statistics). There may be a substantial additional page charge for the second and subsequent pages.
Authors may add brief tables, illustrations, etc., but should reduce the number of words to accommodate these changes.
