The bulletin welcomes manuscripts on technical topics in lichenology relating to western North America and on conservation of lichens, as well as news of lichenologists and their activities. The best way to submit manuscripts is by e-mail attachments in the format of a major word processor (DOC or RTF preferred). Use italics for scientific names. Nomenclature follows Esslinger’s cumulative checklist online at The editors may substitute abbreviations of authors names, as appropriate from The International Plant Names Index – Style follows the most recent published issue. Electronic reprints in PDF format will be emailed to the lead author at no cost.

Please submit figures in electronic formats with an effective resolution of 300 pixels per inch (600 minimum for line drawings) when viewed at a width of 7 inches. Email submissions are limited to 10MB per email, but large files may be split across several emails or other arrangements can be made. Contact the editor for details of submitting illustrations or other large files.

The deadline for submitting material for the winter issue of the CALS Bulletin is September 1, and the deadline for the summer issue is April 1. A review process is followed. Due to review timelines, article revisions, and/or space constraints, articles may occasionally be scheduled for publication in a later issue at the editor’s request and with the author’s permission.
