Paper submission for the IOBC Bulletin

As has been done in previous meetings of our WG, contributions will be published in the IOBC Bulletin. They should be short contributions (maximum 6 pages), or an extended abstract of one page, of scientific or technical information that is not intended to interfere or compete with publication of data in journals. The IOBC/WPRS “Bulletins” are a well-established series of relatively fast issued working papers in a systematic format. Bulletins are proceedings of Working and Study Group meetings and Commission activities. IOBC/WPRS Members have online access to the full content of all recent Bulletins.

Author Guidelines

Both abstracts and full papers must be in English and submitted online. The abstract should not exceed 1 A4 page. The full paper should not exceed 6 pages.

For preparation of your contribution(s) for the IOBC Bulletin please follow the instructions to the authors of IOBC/WPRS, bulletin templates are available in pdf, docx and Endnote.

Submission has two steps:
