The maximum length of manuscripts is 5,000 words, excluding the abstract, tables, figures and references (maximum 1,000 words for a research note).
The title should be informative or descriptive and should contain the main message of the article.
A short title is also requested (to be provided in the language of the paper) with a maximum of 55 characters (including spaces). This short title is printed on the page header, which appears on every other page.
For reviews, the word "review" must appear in the title.
In the author list, names should appear as follows: first names (in full), followed by the surname. The name of the corresponding author should be identified with an asterisk and his/her email address given.
BASE accepts two first authors to be considered as co-first authors and two last authors to be considered as co-last authors.
Author affiliations should be given in accordance with institutional guidelines. Affiliations usually start with the name of the institution followed by the name of the faculty, department and / or laboratory and end with the mailing address and the country.
3. Abstract (structured)
The abstract should contain 100 to 250 words (150 words for research notes). It should contain no references, tables or figures. It should be possible for the abstract to be read independently of the text of the article. The abstract should be structured in five parts with the following titles: "Description of the subject", "Objectives", "Method", "Results" and "Conclusions". Abstracts for reviews should be structured in three parts ("Introduction", "Literature", "Conclusion").
Following the abstract, six to ten keywords should be provided (in both English and French). These represent the essential concepts of the article. Their aim is to facilitate the indexing of the article and its research in bibliographic databases.
The keywords should be selected and translated using AGROVOC, the FAO multilingual agricultural thesaurus (http://aims.fao.org/en/standards/agrovoc/functionalities/search). This thesaurus is used in nearly 90 countries and offers a structure based on the relationship between standardized concepts.
Words appearing in the title and the abstract must not be included in the list of keywords.
