Guidelines for contributors

Articles for World Animal Review are accepted in English, French or Spanish. They should consist of 3 000 to 4 000 words, excluding tables and figures. Short communications (1 000 words) are acceptable. A summary of 100 to 150 words is required in the original language. Abbreviations must be defined and footnotes should be avoided. Articles should be submitted on diskette (IBM-compatible). Indicate the software used.

Sources of published work must be cited in the text, using author name and publication year. Corresponding references provided in the bibliography require author name, publication year, article title, journal title, volume and issue number and number of pages. References should not exceed 15.

Tables and figures should be included at the end of the article, each on a separate page and numbered to correspond with the text reference. They should appear as separate files on the diskette. Sources should be identified and the metric system must be used. At least six black-and-white prints or colour slides are required.

The decision of FAO is final on all matters regarding the editing and publication of articles. Copyright and other proprietary rights with respect to manuscripts, with the exception of any material already subject to copyright, shall be vested in the author, who grants FAO licence to publish and reprint. The author must specify any material contained in the manuscript (including figures) that is already subject to copyright and must warrant that authorization to use such material has been obtained.

Authors will receive 25 complimentary copies of the issue containing their article.
