AUTHOR INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONFERENCE MANUSCRIPTS (NON-PEER REVIEWED) Deadline: August 3, 2009 All participants of North American Biochar 2009 are invited to submit a manuscript of their research to be shared with other conference attendees via electronic distribution.

Although these manuscripts are not intended for peer review, there are minor guidelines to follow. 1. Papers should be typed, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins on all sides. Please use 12pt Times New Roman font. Use the superscript and subscript format for all chemical formulas and footnotes in the text. Otherwise, keep the text as simple as possible; please use only a single space between sentences and single tabs. 2. Page numbers should be at the bottom of each page. There is no page minimum or maximum. 3. The manuscript should be organized in the following order: abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusion, references, tables and figures. Place all tables and figures in the order that they are cited in the manuscript. Include the appropriate labels/headings with the tables and figures. 4. Include a cover page with the title, authors’ names, authors’ affiliation, mailing addresses, email addresses, phone number, and fax number. 5. Please submit and electronic version of your manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading: “Non Peer Manuscript”. Receipt will be acknowledged.
