GUIDE FOR AUTHORS 2020

The Journal of New Zealand Grasslands operates a two-stage submission process.

STAGE 1: Submission of a paper offer

Authors are required to submit an initial 400-word paper offer prior to submission of a full manuscript. Download the 2020 paper offer template here. Paper offers must be emailed to jnzg@outlook.com by Friday 14 February 2020.

Paper offers will be assessed by the Executive Committee of the New Zealand Grassland Association in March 2020 and they will decide whether or not the paper offers are of an appropriate standard and are within the scope of the Journal. Authors will be notified of the Committee’s decision by the end of March and successful authors will be asked to submit a full manuscript by 11 May 2020 using the template supplied by the editor. 

Where a member of the Executive Committee is on the author list or has any other competing interest regarding a specific paper offer then they will be excluded from the decision-making process.

  

STAGE 2: Manuscript preparation and submission

Successful authors from Stage 1 will be sent a manuscript template that corresponds to the category of article that they specified in their paper offer. Authors must submit their completed manuscript by 11 May 2020. Where possible, use the Endnote style file available here to format your references.
