Author Guidelines

Gezira Journal of Agricultural Science is a refereed journal aiming at the dissemination of scientific and technological information resulting from research focusing on all aspects of agriculture. Articles sent for publication must be original reports of research not simultaneously sent to, nor previously published elsewhere. The journal also accepts short notes or communications and by invitation from the editorial board, review papers may be published. Articles may be written either in English or Arabic with both Arabic and English abstracts. Three copies of a typed manuscript with wide margins on the four sides of the paper should be submitted to the editor-in-chief. Every page should be numbered at the bottom centre. When a paper is accepted for publication the author(s) will be asked to provide a copy of the entire manuscript on a compatible computer diskette.

Format

Title: Should be specific, concise and informative. First and last (family) name(s) of the author(s) should be fully written with initials for middle names. Author(s) address(es) should be included. Footnotes are discouraged.

Abstract: Should be short and condensed stating clearly the significant findings and important conclusions of the research work.

Introduction: Includes an introductory statement, concise literature review and objectives.

Materials and methods: Should include materials used and details of relevant methodology.

Results and discussion: May either be pooled or presented under separate sections. Principal findings of research should be presented using the past tense. Numerical results should be depicted in tables and not repeated in the text. Tables should be typed on separate sheets, numbered consecutively in arabic numbers and with titles at the top of the sheet. Presenting too large tables should be avoided. Illustrations must be numbered consecutively, submitted on separate sheets, unmounted and not folded. Only black and white photographs are accepted. Discussion should judge, estimate and assess the scientific value and practical significance of the result in association to other findings.
