Notes for Authors

Authors intending to write a monograph for publication by the Society should initially contact one of the editors (Yves Candela and Peter Crowther:, giving the proposed title, together with a brief statement of the scope of the work, the approximate number of taxa and estimate of the number of typescript pages, plates and text-figures, including the proportion to be devoted to non-British material.

Once the title has been accepted by the Council of the Society, authors should prepare their monograph following the 'Notes for Authors' (if the monograph is a new title) or conform to the style of previous parts (if the submission is to be part of an ongoing monograph).
