GUIDE TO AUTHORS
The South African Journal of Enology and Viticulture (SAJEV) publishes full-length original Research Papers, Research Notes and Review Papers on all subjects related to enology and viticulture. The SAJEV does not accept articles published in, or submitted to, other journals.
MANUSCRIPT: Authorship of papers in the SAJEV is not limited to members of the South African Society for Enology and Viticulture (SASEV). The Editor, in conjunction with members of the Editorial Board, will determine the acceptability of papers. All full-length manuscripts, including research notes, have to be original research, neither simultaneously under consideration for submission nor previously published elsewhere. As from March 2019 supplementary files are no longer accepted and will also not be published on-line. All figures and tables have to be included in the main document. Only include the most relevant figures and tables.
REVIEW PAPERS: A review paper is an authoritative, well interpreted and critical account of recent and current research or technology in a specialised field. These aspects will be critically judged by the Editorial Board to determine the suitability for publication. Authors are encouraged to submit review papers.
RESEARCH NOTES: Research notes are classified as brief reports on preliminary, provisional or interim results of new research or brief reports on new technology or methods, which can be used in research on enology and/or viticulture.
REVIEWING: Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two reviewers. Authors are encouraged to list three reviewers in their letter to the editor when they submit their manuscript. Changes proposed by the reviewers will be forwarded to the author(s), but the editor reserves the right to edit any manuscript for style. Page proofs will be sent as a pdf-file to the corresponding author. Queries or comments will be highlited on the pdf-document, which needs to be answered and emailed back to the Editor, Prof. L.M.T. Dicks (LMTD@sun.ac.za), within 48h. Failure to do so may delay the publication process. Once all corrections have been made on the page proofs, the manuscript is logged as "in press" and receives a DOI (digital object identifier) number. At this stage of the publication process page numbers are not allocated to the manuscript, but only a volume number and year of publication. The author(s) may now refer to the article as "in press" and list the volume and year of publication together with the unique DOI number. SAJEV goes to press in May/June and in November/
December of each year. With going to press, each article receives page numbers and the final version is then uploaded onto the Journal's website.
PAGE CHARGES: R4500 (four thousand five-hundred ZA Rand) per manuscript, irrespective of whether the manuscript is a short note or full-length research paper. The maximum length of a research paper is limited to ten (10) printed journal pages, including references, tables and figures. A research note is usually not longer than three (3) printed journal pages. The following may be used as a guide: Five (5) Microsoft Word pages (approximately 1200 words, printed in double space, font 12, 2.5 cm margins, and without figures or tables) corresponds to two (2) printed journal pages. For manuscripts exceeding the 10-page limit, an additional page fee of R500 per page will be charged. Tables and figures will be printed in colour on request, but at an additional cost of R600 each. Review papers have no strict page limit, but are usually less than twenty (20) printed journal pages and authors are kindly requested to adhere to this.
Review papers are encouraged and page charges is set at a fixed R5000 per manuscript. However, colour images, tables and figures will be levied at an additional R600 each. Page charges is due when the manuscript has been accepted for publication. Payment has to be made before page proofs are sent to the corresponding author and before a DOI number is allocated to the manuscript. All manuscripts are published online and will be available on the SAJEV website (http://www.journals.ac.za/index.php/sajev). Papers that have been accepted for publication, but with outstanding payment of page charges will not be published online and will not be printed.
REPRINTS: Reprints may be downloaded free of charge from the website of the South African Society for Enology and Viticulture (SASEV) (http://www.sasev.org), the website of the Journal (http://www.journals.ac.za/index.php/sajev), or the Internet via most search engines.
STATEMENT: A cover letter supplying the name of the corresponding author with address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address must be submitted. A statement that all authors have reviewed the manuscript and approved its submission to SAJEV, has to be provided. If graphs, schematic representations or tables previously published in another journal have been included as such (and not modified or altered) in the manuscript submitted to SAJEV, the authors need to confirm that permission has been granted, either by the journal or the authors of the original article (which ever applies). Written proof of permission, in the form of a letter from the copy right owner, to use the material has to be submitted together with submission of the manuscript to SAJEV.

MATERIALS AND METHODS
These should be described briefly, but in sufficient detail, to allow repetition of the work. Variables and/or conditions which may affect the results should be specified. A reference is sufficient for a previously described method.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION OR RESULTS, DISCUSSION
The main results should be stated in the text, with reference to tables, diagrams or illustrations, where the supporting evidence is to be found. Although it is not necessary to describe the contents of tables in the text, the principal results should be critically discussed in logical order. Attention should be drawn to the implications of the results and to agreement or disagreement with previous work.
This should not be a summary of results, but should focus on the implications of results and indications for possible applications. This section should not contain reference to figures, tables or any literature.
References must be arranged alphabetically by author's surname. In text references must be listed chronologically. The sequence of reference must be as follows: author's surname, initials (the same for second and other authors, where applicable), year, title of paper (with only the first word capitalised; proper nouns excepted), name of periodical (abbreviated in the style of the Periodical Title Abbreviations, vol 1, By Abbreviation and vol 2, By Title 5th Edition, Gale Research Detroit, Michigan, 1986), volume, issue number (where necessary), pages. If the issue number is applicable, it appears after the volume number in parenthesis.

Tables should be typed double-spaced on separate pages and numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals. They should also bear a short, yet adequately descriptive, caption and include enough information so that each table is interpretable without reference to other tables, figures or text. The layout of a table should be such that the data are presented clearly with brief sub-headings. Non-standard abbreviations must be explained in footnotes. When referring to a table in the text, it should be indicated as Table, followed by the number of the table. Please consult the latest edition of SAJEV for the correct style.
Figures should be in JPEG format (at least 600 dpi) and not exceeding 297 x 210 mm. Figures of low resolution and poor quality will not be accepted and will delay the evaluation of papers. The figures, including lettering and detail, should be drawn so as to permit reduction to 84 mm (single column) or 175 mm (double column) width and still retain clarity. Each figure should be numbered at the bottom of the page and submitted as a separate file. Descriptive legends must be typed, double-spaced, on a separate sheet using Arabic numerals.
Legends should describe the contents so that each figure is understandable when considered apart from the text. When referring to a figure in the text, it should be indicated as Fig. or Figs followed by the number of the figure. Please consult the latest edition of SAJEV for the correct style.
The preferable positions of the tables in the text must be indicated as follows:
/ insert table 1 /
The preferable positions of the figures in the text must be indicated as follows:
/ insert figure 1 /
Tables and figures should be numbered according to the order in which they are referred to in the text.
Photographs submitted should be high quality, preferably as JPEG files. When necessary, the magnification should be indicated, e.g. x240. Photographs are expensive to print and should, therefore, be kept to a minimum and, if more than one, grouped together. Printing of full colour photographs will only be considered on rare occasions and these will be for the account of the author(s). Poor quality will not be accepted and will delay publication.
All figures and photographs must be referred to as figures and must be submitted in separate files. Only metric (S.I.) units may be used on figures.
Spell out all numbers or fractions which begin a sentence. Write out numerals one through nine, except with units of measure. If simple fractions are used they must be written out and hyphenated (e.g. three-quarters). It is preferable to use decimals instead of fractions. Between numerals the preposition "to" must be used instead of a hyphen (e.g. 15°C to 18°C). When reporting time, the 24-hour system with four digits must be used; the first two for hours followed by a colon and the last two digits for minutes (e.g. 09:00 for nine o'clock a.m., 21:30 for half past nine p.m.). Dates must be reported as year, month and then day of the month (e.g. 1992-12-14).
Wine and juice volumes should be reported as litres (L). The use of the capital is recommended to prevent confusion with the number one (1). Grape mass should be reported as grams (g), kilograms (kg) or metric tonnes (t). Temperatures should be reported as degrees Celsius with-out a space between the numerals and the unit (e.g. 15.8°C). All other numerals and units should be provided with a space (e.g. 15 mm, 5 mg/L, 2.5 M). Land surface area must be expressed as hectares (ha).
