The Editorial Board may request that authors revise the manuscripts in light of the reviewers' suggestions. approval for publication.The authors should upload the revised files with a reply to each item in the reviewers' comments after revision of the manuscript. The manuscript review process should be completed until the Editorial Board makes a final decision on the

MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION
The entire manuscript, including title, abstract, authors' information, keywords, figures and tables and references should be provided.

Manuscripts should be ordered into sections as follows: Title (including Running title, not exceeding 60 words), Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgements, References.

- Authorship
An author is defined as one who has made a significant contribution to the overall design and execution of the experiments; therefore, the Korean Society of Mushroom Science deems all authors responsible for the entire paper. Assistants should be listed as authors, but may be recognized in the Acknowledgements section.
- Originality and Duplicate Publication

No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in other scientific journals without the permission of the Editorial Board. If duplicate publication related to the papers of this journal is detected, the authors will be announced in this journal, their institutes will be informed, and they will be penalized.
- Conflict of Interest Statement
Authors should disclose any conflicts of interest in the manuscript.
- Title and Authorship (single page)
The title must be clearly intelligible to a non-specialist. The use of jargon and non-standard abbreviations in the title is not permitted. In manuscript written in Korean, title, author name, and affiliation should be written firstly in Korean. The same information should also be presented in English. In manuscript written in English, authors should refer to the basic style defined for Korean ones. If the number of authors is two or more, * mark should be indicated at the end of corresponding author. If affiliations of authors are different, superscriptions of 1, 2, 3 should be put at the end of authors name in order. The same marks should be put in front of respective affiliation. The corresponding authors should provide author's name in English, affiliation, affiliation address, telephone, fax, and e-mail.
- Abstract and Keywords (single page)
The abstract should be a single paragraph, not exceeding 200 words. URLs and references to figures or schemes should NOT be included. References should not normally be included in the abstract. At least five key words for the subject index need to be provided (alphabetical order and capitalize the first letter of each keyword).
- Introduction
The introduction should supply sufficient background information to allow the reader to understand and evaluate the results of the present study without referring to previous publications on the topic. The introduction should also provide the rationale for the present study. Use only those references required to provide the most salient background rather than an extensive review of the topic.
- Materials and Methods
The Materials and Methods section should include sufficient technical information to allow the experiments to be repeated. Give enough information about the maker and model of instrument, operating conditions and other details of the experimental procedures. For commonly used materials and methods (media and protein determinations for example) a simple reference is sufficient. If several alternative methods are commonly used, it is helpful to identify the method briefly as well as to cite the reference. Describe new methods or techniques in detail and give sources of unusual chemicals, equipment, or microbial strains so that another investigator can repeat the same procedure. When a large number of microbial strains, mutants, bacteriophages, or plasmids are used, include tables identifying their sources and properties.
- Results
The Results section should include results of the experiments. Extensive interpretation of the results should be reserved for the Discussion section.
Present the results as concisely as possible in one of the followings: text, table(s), or figure(s). Number figures and tables in order and be sure to cite all figures and tables in the text.
- Discussion
The Discussion section should provide an interpretation of the results in relation to previously published works and should not contain extensive repetition of the Results section or reiteration of the Introduction. The Results and Discussion sections may be combined.
- Tables
Tables should be numbered with Arabic numbers and cited consecutively in the text. Tables should be typed at the end of the manuscript, together with a suitable caption at the top of each table. Footnotes should be expressed as Arabic numbers of 1), 2), 3) at the bottom of tables, and no sign should be used. Moreover, *, ** marks must be used to present significance probability of p<0.05 or p<0.01 in statistical analysis. In multiple range test, alphabets of a, b, c, d, and etc. should be used and the explanations should be stated at the bottom.
- Figures
Figures should be cited consecutively in the text by Arabic numbers. Figure numbers, titles and legends should be typed double-spaced on a separate page. All figures should be submitted in such form as to permit reproduction without retouching or redrawing. Line drawings should be professionally drawn, or generated by high-resolution computer graphics. Lettering on the figures should be of good quality and of a size that allows for eventual reduction of the figures. Each figure must be clearly numbered.
- Acknowledgements
Acknowledgements of financial and personal assistance are to be given in a separate paragraph(s) as briefly as possible.
- References
The References section should include all journal articles, books, patents, and theses cited in the text, tables or figures.All items in this section should be written in English. The initial version of a paper published in this way can be cited by the Digital Object Identifier (doi) but, if available, the reference should also include the citation of the final version.
Arrange the citations in alphabetical order based on the first author's name. Cite the references in the text by author name(s) with the publication year. Single-and double-authored papers are cited by both authors' last names, whereas papers with more than three authors are cited by the first author's last name followed by et al. in italic. Other relevant sources, such as articles submitted for publication, unpublished data, or personal communication, should not be listed in this section, but can be cited in the text. Abbreviate journal names, according to BIOSIS Serial Sources.
