We are always looking for new scientific articles. Do you, one of your students, or someone you know have an article appropriate for The Botanist? Now is the time to contribute manuscripts related to Great Lakes botany (and to solicit the contribution of manuscripts from others). These can be research articles, contributions to the Michigan Big Tree program, noteworthy collections, nature education, biographies, etc. Also note that shorter manuscripts are reviewed more rapidly and tend to appear in print much faster than longer contributions.
Student participation is strongly encouraged; the Isabel Dickinson Fund awards a $100.00 prize for the best student authored or co-authored paper appearing in each volume of The Botanist.
Authors receive a page-charge discount for submission of final copy on disk, and members receive an allotment of free pages each year.
