Information for Submission of article
Bangladesh Journal of Nuclear Agriculture (BJNA) is published both in online (https://bjna.info) and offline (print version) by the Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture. It is a half yearly journal, published in June and December. The journal is intended for publishing original research contributions and a limited number of review articles commissioned by the editors concerning all aspects of peaceful uses of nuclear techniques (induced mutations, isotope, food irradiation etc) and frontier science in agricultural research. The aspects of agricultural research will include broad fields of Crop Improvement, Soil-Plant Relations, Crop Protection, Irrigation & Water Management and it will also be concerned with the technical aspects of agricultural research. Information for the contributors Authors willing to contribute to the Bangladesh Journal of Nuclear Agriculture (BJNA) are requested to kindly note the following instructions/information while preparing their papers. 1. Contribution for BJNA should be addressed to the Executive Editor, Bangladesh Journal of Nuclear Agriculture, Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture, BAU Campus, Mymensingh-2202, Bangladesh. 2. Manuscripts must be in English and typewritten in double space throughout with reasonable margin (4 cm). Words must be in Time New Roman having 12 font size. 3. Articles must be original reports of research not previously or simultaneously published or under consideration for publication in any other scientific and technical journal. 4. Articles should contain results of at least two years of field experiments/ multilocation field trials or enough information of green house/pot/field experiments using nuclear and other advanced techniques. Articles containing results of experiments conducted five years before will not be considered for publication. 5. Manuscripts should not exceed 4000 words inclusive of tables and figures, and should be submitted in duplicate. Review papers of original research should not exceed 5000 words and short communications should not exceed 1600 words including table and figures. 6.

References to publications other than journals e.g. Proceedings, Books, etc. should proceed by “In” and include name of publisher and place of publications e.g. (In: Induced Mutations for Improvement of Grain Legume Production. IAEA-TECDOC-234, International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna. pp. 62-72, p. 78). Publications without author’s name should be listed chronologically under “Anonymous”. 12. All citations should be listed alphabetically as follows: Zakri, A. H. and Grafius, J. E. 1978. Development allometry and its implication to grain yield in barley. Crop Sci. 18: 83-86. 13. Journal abbreviations should comply with the abbreviated titles of journals as in the world list of scientific periodicals (4th Ed).
