New Reporting Service numbering
The staff of the EPPO Secretariat takes the opportunity to send all readers of the Reporting Service best wishes for the year 1993!
With the beginning of the year 1993 and the January issue of the Reporting Service the EPPO Secretariat will change the number codes of the Reporting Service and the single articles of this publication. Since the Reporting Service has increasingly served as an international source for distribution records of quarantine pests and other official information it was felt that the year of appearance of a certain Reporting Service item should be indicated in the number code. Therefore, the first article in the January issue of the Reporting Service 1993 will receive the number - 93/001 - by which the first two numbers indicate the year of appearance and the following three the running number of the article within the year 1993. We believe that this system will make it easier to handle Reporting Service articles when they are indicated as a reference.
