Scientific Notes (700 Words) are brief reports for publication in the Proceedings of the Florida State Horticultural Society.
Please submit Scientific Notes to our FSHS Editor, Mary Lamberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
