INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTRIBUTORS
Articles will be published online as they are accepted. All articles are peer-reviewed. There is no longer a print edition.Fungal Genetics Reports is a suitable place for short research notes, methods notes, linkage data, information concerning new mutants, announcements of meetings, or of positions available et cetera. It is a policy not to accept an abstract or shorter version of a full-length paper which will be published soon in a regular journal. However, a more extensive description of techniques or mutants used in a regular paper would be appropriate for FGR. We particularly encourage you to use FGR to describe new techniques or methods. All manuscripts are reviewed but will not be returned to authors for minor editorial changes. Please make every effort to have your manuscript conform to the format used in FGR.

contributors are encouraged to communicate an outline of their review before writing the manuscript. "One-Liners"
is a section in which helpful hints, et cetera, can
Please communicate one or two sentence pieces of useful information at any time during the year. "Brief Notes" is a section in which a brief account of research observations can be made; typically only very preliminary research will have been done.
