The Chief Editor coordinates technical editing now from Vietnam (T R Preston, Finca Ecologica, University of Agriculture and Forestry, Thu Duc, Ho Chi Minh city) with assistance from the Editorial Committee and other "on-line" advisers.
Papers should be sent, preferably by E-mail, to one of the above members of the editorial board, or directly to:
or on diskette to the above address. If acknowledgement is not received within one week (in the case of E-mail) then authors should send a reminder to the Chief Editor with details of the file names and dates sent. The papers can be written with the aid of any of the principal word processing software programs and if sent as e-mail should be as "compressed and UUENCODED"files (or as "Attachments" if the mailer software supports this option).
Papers are edited for uniformity of style and put into "html" format for immediate posting on the LRRD Homepage on the World Wide Web. Members of the editorial board and other invited referees, as well as the authors, have the opportunity to revise and comment on the papers. Any necessary revisions are incorporated in the final version of each number which is closed when 10 papers have been posted. The "Acrobat" version is then prepared with page numbers and is the definitive final copy of each each number of the journal.
The principle tools for publishing the journal are now: Corel Office (Word Perfect 7 or 8), Lotus 123, version 5.1 and Harvard Graphics; and Microsoft Office (MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint). Therefore these are the preferred formats for receiving papers.
Authors should examine carefully recent papers in the journal and follow the style currently in use. Where possible, please always supply the original spreadsheets and data which were used to produce graphics in the papers, since this allows us to produce a uniform look and maintain the quality of the finished journal. Likewise, if you have tabulated data in your paper, please format it using a table, and not tabs and spaces since tables are very well supported in HTML format. References should be set up with minimum punctuation but maximum detail of the actual citation. Abbreviations of journal titles should not be used.
