Notice to Authors


The Bangladesh Journal of Mushroom is an international Mushroom research and review journal, published in June and December of each year. National Mushroom Development and Extension Centre welcomes original research articles on Mushrooms. The articles must be not previously or simultaneously published or under consideration for publication in any other scientific journal. Both full-length papers and short communications will be considered for publication.


Preparation of Manuscript

Manuscripts should be written in English, typed on one side of good quality A4 size papers with double space leaving wide margins (left and top 3.5 cm, right and bottom 3.0 cm)) preferable in Times New Roman in or advance windows version. The manuscript should be presented sequentially as Title, Abstract, Key words, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion, Acknowledgments (if any) and References. Table(s) and Figure(s) should be attached in separate sheets, but those should be referred sequentially in the text. Numerical result should be presented in the form of either tables or figures.


Title page should bear the title of the article, name of author(s) with address (es). The corresponding author should be highlighted with telephone, fax and e-mail address if available.


Title : The title must be informative, brief and specific.


Abstract: The abstract (preferably within 150 words) should follow immediately after the title in the first page.


Keywords: Appropriate key words (not exceeding seven) consistent with the title should be presented after the abstract.


Tables: Tables with appropriate title should conform to the page size avoiding vertical lines.


Illustrations and photographs: Illustrations (with appropriate scales) including diagrams and graphs in the text should be as 'Figure'. Good quality printed illustration should be on separate sheets with the author’s name. Short title and proper caption should be written on the back side.


Citations and References: Citations should include author(s) and year of publication. Items in the reference list should be referred to in the text by inserting inside parentheses, the year of publication after  the author’s name. If there are more than two authors, the first author should be cited followed by ‘et al.’. The names of all authors, however, would appear in the reference list. References should be arranged alphabetically according to the first author. In the case of citing more than one paper of the same author(s) in the same year, the papers should be distinguished by suffixing of a small letter, e. g. Amin (2001a), Amin (2001b).
