1) Type of article
2) Title in English
3) Title in Japanese
4) Author name in English (Wetland Society membership status should be mentioned – “yes or no”)

The text of the Japanese abstract should be no more than 400 words, and the English abstract should be no longer than 300 words. Since the abstract is sometimes handled independently from the main text, clauses, terms, formulas, and charts in the text should not be cited. Also, do not use uncommon abbreviations, symbols, and terminology without defining them. Please refer to “3. Main text” regarding notations and usage of punctuation marks, numbers, organism names, and units.

3. Main Text
The manuscript should be formatted on A4-size paper with 12-point font and about 30 lines per page. Page margins should be set to around 3 cm on both sides (left/right) and for the top and bottom. Add line numbers and page numbers continuously (do not restart numbering on each page). In addition, one page of the printed article is roughly equivalent to 600 words. Punctuation marks are “,” “.”, and the use of kana should be based on modern kana orthography. Use Arabic numerals and place a comma for every three digits. When you use Japanese biological names or English names, you must include a scientific name (italic notation) at first mention. For Japanese biological names, use katakana.
Units should follow the International System of Units (SI).
Headings of chapters, subchapters, and sections are as follows:
Chapter 1, 2, 3, …
Subchapter 1.1, 1.2, …, 2.1, …
Section 1.1.1, 1.1.2, …

4. Guidelines for Citations
When quoting literature in the text, follow the examples below. When quoting from different papers written by the same author in the same year, sequential lowercase letters beginning with “a” should be added after the issue year to distinguish between them. In the case of multiple authors (three or more), only the first author should be noted, and the remaining authors should be described by using “et al.” for English papers. When quoting a website, if the author or the announcement year is clear, it should be written down. Otherwise, write down the website administrator name so that it can be checked against the reference list. The term “in press” is used only when the paper is accepted. For unaccepted papers, “unpublished” should be noted in the text but not in the reference list.
Example 1: According to Sato and Kobayashi (2008) …, Mitsch (2007) and Yamada et al. (2010) ….
Example 2: … reported (Sato et al. 2007, Kato and Obama 1998).
Example 3: … reported (Sato 2006a, ABC Prefecture ABC Department a, ABC Prefecture ABC Department b).
Example 4: … reported (Sato 2006b, Kobayashi in press, ABC Ministry 2003).

5. How to Write the Reference List
In the list of cited references, the literature should be listed in alphabetical order based on the authors’ last names without grouping them based on type of publication (i.e., articles, books, etc.). In the case of articles with the same author, they should be arranged in numerical order based on the year of issue and should be put together at the end of the text. Each type of literature is described according to the following examples. If possible, also include the DOI (digital object identifier). In the case of a website, write the URL and access date.

Even in the case of references for which the method described above is difficult to apply, information on the author name, publication time, title, publication place, publisher, etc. should be provided as much as possible so that readers can find such references.

6. Notes on Copyrights Related to Citations
When quoting other authors’ works such as texts and diagrams, the authors are responsible for obtaining permission from the copyright owner(s) in advance.

7. Figures and Tables
The figures (including pictures) and tables should not be incorporated in the text but included as separate documents for each figure and table. Each table should be adjusted to the appropriate size to print on one page. For tables beyond one page, divide each of them into two or more tables. Clear figure/table files should be submitted on the assumption that the horizontal width dimension of printed figures/tables will be approximately 7 cm or 15 cm.
Figures and tables should be labeled sequentially using Arabic numbers (i.e. Fig. 1, Fig. 2; Table 1, Table 2, etc.). In figures and tables, explanatory notes that can be understood, even without reading titles and texts, should be added.

Insert a blank line before and after the point where the figure/table is inserted, as shown below.

Japan Wetland Society Publication Guidelines

1. Journal Name and Aim
The Japan Wetland Society issues Wetland Research as an official publication usually once a year. The establishment philosophy of the Society widely welcomes diverse academic fields, entities, and study objects. In order to follow the philosophy, this journal aims to recognize the scientific and objective value that has not yet necessarily been captured in the evaluation axis of the academic field. It also aims to widely publish the information thought to be useful for members of the Society and the general public.

2. Article Types
The types of articles that Wetland Research publishes are listed below. Articles for publication in Wetland Research should contribute to the Society’s aims and are limited to only those previously unpublished. In addition, other article types can be published only if the editorial committee allows.
“Original Article” (Peer-reviewed article)
“Practical Research” (Peer-reviewed article)
“Review Article” (Peer-reviewed article)
“Research Note” (Peer-reviewed article)
“Case Introduction” (Non-peer reviewed article)
“Topics” (Non-peer reviewed article)
“Book Review” (Non-peer reviewed article)
“Announcement from the Society” (Non-peer reviewed article)
“Others” (Non-peer reviewed article)

2.1. Original Article
These articles should show new knowledge and technology in contrast to existing knowledge and technology systems and must include considerations and conclusions on issues/hypotheses. A maximum of 16 pages is acceptable.

2.2. Practical Research
Describe the process or innovations leading to the solution for social and practical issues related to wetlands. Although there is no requirement for comparisons against existing knowledge and technology systems, it will be useful information for people who work on similar issues. A maximum of 16 pages is acceptable.

2.3. Review Article
Organize and explain published facts and research trends on a set theme. Present information including a general overview of the current situation, new viewpoints, and future prospects. A maximum of 16 pages is acceptable.

2.4. Research Note
Even if the information given in the paper is not enough to be recognized as an Original Article or Practical Research, it is still worth publishing. For example, examining or describing one of many phenomena to be tested for hypothesis verification or problem solving, those whose accumulation of knowledge is important and whose contents should be scrutinized after the peer review process (e.g., observation record of distribution, ecology, morphology of organism, etc.), and reports and evaluations related to cases (activities, policies, etc.) that are worthy of public disclosure in terms of dissemination. A maximum of 8 pages is acceptable.

2.5. Case Introduction
Introduction of surveys and activities, introduction of domestic and overseas trends and efforts, introduction of collected materials/data, and other similar topics. A maximum of 6 pages is acceptable.

2.6. Topics
Report on conference hosting or participation, travel story, and other similar topics. A maximum of 6 pages is acceptable.

2.7. Book Review, Society Announcement, Other Non-Peer-Reviewed Articles
Book reviews, announcements from the Society, and other articles that the editorial committee allows for publication other than article types 2.1 to 2.6.

3. Special Feature
In Wetland Research, a “Special Feature” that collects multiple articles according to specific topics can be published.

3.1. Proposal for “Special Feature”
Members of the Society can propose a “Special Feature” to the editorial committee. The proposer is required to send the theme and main goal of the “Special Feature,” the type of each article, the title, the prospective author (it is desirable to obtain his/her consent), and the schedule to the submission address specified in the Submission Guidelines.

3.2. Article for Special Feature
Manuscripts submitted as articles for the “Special Feature” are handled in the same manner as articles described in 2. Article Types.

4. Language
Japanese or American English.

5. Copyright
The copyright of the articles published in Wetland Research belongs to the Japan Wetland Society. One has to obtain permission from the editorial committee in advance if he/she intends to copy or use the whole or a part of the published article in other publications in a format such as reprints.

6. Release
The Society will release articles on the Internet.

7. Eligibility
At least one of the authors of the submitted manuscripts shall be a member of the Society. In addition, after obtaining the editorial committee’s permission, non-members are also allowed to submit articles.

8. Manuscript Guideline
Submitted manuscripts must follow the Submission Guidelines for Wetland Research.

9. Submission and Response from the Committee
Manuscript submission is based on electronic posting. The manuscript must be submitted with a “information sheet for submission” to the address specified in the Submission Guidelines. After receiving the manuscript, the editorial committee will promptly respond to the submitter.

10. Manuscript Review Process
The editorial committee arranges appropriate reviewers to review certain types of articles. Reviews are done according to a “Reviewer Guideline.” When the review result is a revision, the committee will notify the author of the decision. When the result is rejection, the committee will notify the author and explain the reason. If the manuscript is not revised by the specified deadline, it may be regarded as canceled.

11. Proofreading
Only the first version is proofread by the author. After receiving the notification that the first proofing is required, the author should promptly proofread it and send it back to the editorial committee by the designated deadline. The author is not allowed to add, delete, or change any texts, figures, or tables when proofing.

12. Submission Fee
There is no fee for manuscript submission and article publishing. There is no reward for publishing. If the author wishes to prepress or print in color, the actual cost will be borne by the author. The author may need to pay the costs of excessive pages.

13. Revision of these Guidelines
The editorial committee is in charge of the revision of these guidelines and needs to obtain approval from the elected committee before revising any part of these guidelines.
