Guidelines and Style for

IRRN Contributors

Articles for publication in the International Rice Research Newsletter (IRRN) should observe the following guidelines and style.

Guidelines Contributions should not exceed two pages of

double-spaced typewritten text. Two figures (graphs, tables, or photos) may accompany each article. The editor will return articles that exceed space limitations.

Contributions should be based on results of research on rice or on cropping patterns involving rice.

Appropriate statistical analyses should be done.

Announcements of the release of new rice varieties are encouraged.

Pest survey data should be quantified. Give infection percentage, degree of severity, etc.

Style For measurements, use the International

System. Avoid national units of measure (cavan, rai, etc.).

measure when they follow a number. For example: 20 kg/ha, 2 h/d.

Express yield data in tonnes per hectare (t/ha). With small-scale studies, use grams per pot

Express time, money, and common measures in number, even when the amount is less than 10. For example: 8 min, $2, 3 kg/ha, 2-wk intervals.

Write out numbers below 10 except in a series containing 10 or higher numbers. For example: six parts, seven tractors, four varieties. But There were 4 plots in India, 8 in Thailand, and 12 in Indonesia.

Write out numbers that start sentences. For example: Sixty insects were put in each cage. Seventy-five percent of the yield increase is attributed to fertilizer.

Place the name or denotation of chemicals or other measured materials near the unit of measure. For example: 60 kg N/ha, not 60 kg/ha N; 200 kg seed/ha, not 200 kg/ha seed.

Use common names not trade names for chemicals.

The US$ is the standard monetary unit in the IRRN. Data in other currencies should be converted to US$.

When using acronyms, spell each out at first mention and put the specific acronym in parentheses. After that, use the acronym throughout the paper. For example: The brown planthopper (BPH) is a well-known insect pest of rice. Three BPH biotypes have been observed in Asia.

Abbreviate names of months to three letters: Jun, Apr, Sep.

Define in the footnote or legend any nonstandard abbreviations or symbols used in a table or figure.


Abbreviate names of standard units of

(g/pot) or g/row.

Do not cite references or include a
