The manuscript has to be submitted to Agronomy Journal using Manuscript Central:


If you don’t have an account, you have to create one. After you logged on, select the Author tab and fill in the information requested. For the manuscript type, it is important to select “European Turfgrass Conference 2020“. Dr. Mike Richardson and Dr. John Stier are the TEs (technical editor) for this special issue. One of their names should be listed as TE after you submit your manuscript. Let us know if you have questions or if a different name is listed for TE.



The Extended  Abstract should have the title, author names and institutions to which they belong. Because space is limited, content should be concise and to the point:

  • Introduction
  • Scope or research objectives of your study (one or two sentences).
  • Brief description methods and materials (one or two sentences).
  • Results or key findings (one or two sentences, be specific enough but state only your main points).
  • Conclusions (one sentence).
  • Do not include literature citations or references in figures or tables.
  • Use English language.

General Format: Document should be no longer than 2 pages, single spaced, Calibri 10 pt. font, with 2.5 cm margins (sides and top/bottom).

Abstract Title: Title should be concise and clearly identify the nature of the study. Should be in ALL CAPS, centred, using Calibri 10 pt. font.

Authors: List all authors two lines below title (still centred), in Calibri 10 pt. Numbers in superscript should follow each author’s name indicating their institutional/organizational affiliations. On a new line, after the last author’s name, list the affiliation by number for each of the authors.

Text: Text should start on the left-hand side of the page two lines below the author’s names/affiliations. Please include in your extended abstract a brief introduction, followed by methods and at the end results/discussion.
