Describe the procedures for your study in sufficient detail that other scientists could repeat your work to verify your findings. Always make sure to describe any modifications you have made of a standard or published method. The information should include: Here is some additional advice on particular problems common to new scientific writers.
You may want to identify certain types of equipment by vendor name and brand or category e. If you have performed experiments at a particular location or lab because it is the only place to do it, or one of a few, then you should note that in your methods and identify the lab or facility.
Experiments involving humans or animals All authors, regardless of their country of origin, who describe experiments on vertebrate animals Journal of animal science format required to give assurance in the Materials and methods that the animals were cared for in accordance with the Guide to the Care and Use of Experimental Animals Vol.
We do not charge any open-access fees to contributors. Manuscripts of papers will be examined by our editorial staff and if promising they will be forwarded to anonymous referees. Very frequently the experimental design and data collection procedures for an experiment cannot be separated and must be integrated together.
When your paper includes more than one experiment, use subheadings to help organize your presentation by experiment. This means that authors can freely upload their articles to their website, or publish them as a chapter in a book.
Online editing services are recommended for contributors whose first language is not English. Someone else should be able to go to the exact location of your study site if they want to repeat or check your work, or just visit your study area. These letters must accompany the submitted manuscript; otherwise, publication may be delayed.
Any areas that are identified as problematic will be addressed by the Editorial Office in consultation with the corresponding author. We are editing a special issue for Notice how the substitution in red of treatment and control identifiers clarifies the passage both in the context of the paper, and if taken out of context.
Avoid using ambiguous terms to identify controls or treatments, or other study parameters that require specific identifiers to be clearly understood. Manuscripts should generally follow Chicago Manual of Style.
In exceptional cases longer manuscripts may be published if it is deemed truly necessary. The papers are prepared for publication by a professional copy editor responsible for ensuring that the final published work is consistent in form and style.
Authors usually write the text of the results section based upon the sequence of Tables and Figures. Abstracts or extended abstracts related to conferences do not constitute prior publication.
In this example the reader will have no clue as to what the various tubes represent without having to constantly refer back to some previous point in the Methods. The results section always begins with text, reporting the key results and referring to your figures and tables as you proceed.
An inoculating loop was used to transfer culture to the agar surface. Write the text of the Results section concisely and objectively.
It is often a good idea to include a map labeled as a Figure showing the study location in relation to some larger more recognizable geographic area. Such a disclaimer ensures that the methods are repeatable and ensures the scientific integrity of the work.
Of course you did, because that is what all good scientists do, and it is a given that you recorded your measurements and observations. Reprints and e-prints If reprints or e-prints electronic reprints in PDF format are desired, the author must follow instructions for ordering forwarded with the galley proofs.
Manuscripts of essays will be reviewed by the editor s. The A of the no-light control was measured only at Time 0 and at the end of the experiment. Most often it is not.
Endangered species Authors must certify that research involving endangered species was conducted in conformance with all applicable laws.
Once accepted, papers should appear within four weeks on this website. Be sure to include the hypotheses you tested, controls, treatments, variables measured, how many replicates you had, what you actually measured, what form the data take, etc. Use the past tense.The Canadian Journal of Behavioural Science publishes original empirical research in the following areas of psychology.
