Additional advice from the Editor, Dr John Stafford

  1. If English is not your native language, take special care that your paper is in acceptable English. You may be fluent in speaking English – but writing English is a very different matter! You are strongly advised to have your paper checked/corrected by a competent native English speaker before submission.
  2. The paper limit is 8 A4 sides. Your paper will be returned if you exceed the limit. Equally, it is unlikely that your paper will adequately describe your project if less than 5 or 6 sides.
  3. The conference is on precision agriculture. Delegates do not need any general description of precision agriculture in your paper. Do not describe what is likely to be common knowledge to conference delegates.
  4. Author Instructions [ https://ecpa2019.agrotic.org/full-paper-submission/ ] are the first thing you should read – not the last!
  5. You have been requested to submit a full paper on the basis of your abstract. Your paper will be subject to two scientific assessors and the Editor’s scrutiny. The result will be either a) acceptance as is or, b) a request to revise your paper (subject to further check by the Editor) or, c) poster presentation instead of oral or, d) rejection.
  6. This editor prefers the use of the passive voice in papers and avoidance of the use of the royal ‘we’!
  7. What you have done should be in the past tense – not the present.
  8. All abbreviations should be in full at first use.
  9. Include a clear objective/hypothesis early in the paper.
  10. Use only SI units and the correct abbreviations for SI units.

The submission of full papers is done using the OASES website
