These offences (and Brazier's approach to the boy) were almost identical to those for which he was convicted in 1994, when he pleaded guilty to three counts of indecently assaulting a 16-year-old boy in the boy's home and also at Brazier`s parish house. He told police the boy had progressively become attractive to him, and admitted to hugging and fondling him 100 to 200 times. He was given a two year suspended sentence.

The church's initial response, both by the Order and the PSRG, was to question the victim's veracity and ignore the complaint. However, she persisted by forwarding her complaint to all the members of the national (bishops') committee for professional standards. Eventually, the victim was issued with an acknowledgement, apology and compensation. Br Brendan died in 1983.

Complainant 3, 31yo at the time of the offence in 2003, said Coote began sending her sexually suggestive text messages, including one likening himself to Shane Warne.

The women's complaints triggered an internal investigation wherein the complaints were found credible, and the church disciplinary committee subsequently recommended Archdeacon Coote be subjected to a prohibition order and psychosexual assessment, have weekly supervision for six months and be restricted from ministering to women when alone. However, the bishop of the diocese, Ross Davies, failed to act on the recommendations. Coote continued as minister of Happy Valley Anglican and also in his senior position in the diocese.

For expedient manuscript processing, we ask you to carefully read the guidelines below before the preparation and submission of your manuscript. Table of Contents 2. AIM & SCOPE The aim of JIPB is to report novel scientific discoveries related to any aspects of plant biology, using integrative genetic, genomic, biochemical, molecular, physiological and systems biology approaches, and to foster communication and discussion among scientists in different areas of plant and agricultural sciences. Articles submitted to JIPB should fit into one of the following 9 themes: 1) Cell and Developmental Biology; 2) Functional Omics and Systems Biology; 3) Metabolism and Biochemistry; 4) Molecular Ecology and Evolution; 5) Molecular Physiology; 6) Photosynthesis and Crop Physiology; 7) Plant-abiotic Interactions; 8) Plant-pathogen Interactions and 9) Plant Reproduction Biology. Our primary focus is to publish articles that are able to provide answers to significant questions in the general area of plant biology, and to report new technologies and resources essential for such studies. Preliminary observations, purely descriptive studies, omics-studies without functional validation, plant tissue culture and transformation fall beyond the scope of the journal.

The JIPB Endnote Template also can be downloaded here:. For review articles, there is no limitation on the number of references cited, although we strongly suggest citing only publications in which original knowledge was presented.

For other types of articles, the maximum number of cited references is 50. The Harvard (author, date) system of referencing is used (examples are given below). In the text, give the author's name followed by the year in parentheses: Smith (2000). If there are two authors use 'and': Smith and Jones (2001); if cited within parentheses also use 'and': (Smith and Jones 2001). When reference is made to a work by three or more authors, the first name followed by et al. Should be used: MacDonald et al.

If more than one work is cited within parentheses, separate citations using a semi-colon (Friedman 1994; Wang et al. 1997), except in the case where the author of the works is the same, in which case the author's name should not be repeated, but the years should be divided with a comma (Smith 2000, 2002). References should be listed in alphabetical order. Always cite the names of all authors in the reference list. References to unpublished data and personal communications should not appear in the list but should be cited in the text only (e.g. A Smith, pers.

Comm.; RW Wang, unpubl. In such cases where manuscripts include a “personal communication,” a letter from the cited individual(s) must be attached to the cover letter. All citations mentioned in the text, tables or figures must be listed in the reference list. Names of journals should be abbreviated according to the Serial Sources for the Biosis Data Base, available in most libraries or from. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of the references.

Bar charts should be colored according to journal style as follows, from left to right: purple (filled), white with blue diagonal lines (45-degree right sloping lines), lime-green (filled), white with yellow diagonal lines (45-degree left sloping lines). For more information on bar chart colors,. The column diagram should contain a border line which should be black with a width of 1 point. It is not required to add a frame for the figures. Detailed figure requirements follow: Figure Font Requirements Typeface: Arial Figure labels (A, B, C, etc.) font size: 11 pt, bold Figure caption font size: 7 pt, no bold X-axis, y-axis labels font size: 8 pt, no bold X-axis, y-axis units: 7 pt, no bold All other text inside figures: 7 pt, no bold Lettering must be included and should be sized to 8 point (Arial + overstrike) for line figures and photographs; figure numbers should be sized to be 9 point size (Arial + overstrike). Magnifications should be indicated using a scale bar on the illustration.

All figures must be supplied in camera-ready format. Icons The author of accepted article should submit a representative icon with the final production version of the manuscript. The graphic icon will represent the paper on the Table of Contents for each online issue. The icon should be 150x150 pixels in size, and should illustrate or exemplify the topic of the paper. Here are some summary rules for icons: 1. 150x150 pixels in size 2.

GIF format (in RGB color mode) 3. May be an animated GIF 4. If using type, ensure it is legible in the final icon For making an icon from a figure. Nonessential text and graphic elements should be removed. Reduce the figure to its strongest, most important graphic elements, leaving out any unnecessary borders or margins. We recommend that icons are created using Adobe Photoshop or similar software.

For animated icons. Animated icons should have the animated GIF format. As with static icons, animated icons must be 90 x 90 pixels in size. Make sure that the file size is as small as possible, lest the icon load slowly and diminish the reader's experience.

The ICON should be uploaded to the SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL area of the article.

FREE ACCESS POLICY JIPB is devoted to reaching a broad readership through the following FreeAccess (FA) policies: • •All newly published articles are Free Access for the first month after publication; • •All papers in our Special Issues are Free Access; • •All Letters to the editor, Editorials and Commentary are Free Access; • •The first issue of the year is Free Access; Free Access allows you to read and download the article for free, regardless of whether or not you have a subscription to JIPB. SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL Supplementary material is not essential to the article but provides greater depth and background and may include tables, figures, videos, datasets, etc.

This material can be submitted with your manuscript and will appear online, without editing or typesetting. There is no page limit for supplementary materials. Guidelines on how to prepare this material and which formats and file sizes to use can be found at:. Brief summary Authors of accepted articles should provide a brief summary (50 words in total) about the major findings, using layman language.

The summary is mainly for non-specialized readers to understand the novelty and impact of the work presented in the paper, especially for readers from cross-disciplinary fields. This brief summary will be added into the Table of Contents for the online issue. The following examples may be helpful: We employed field and laboratory assays to determine the capacity of wild tobacco ( Nicotiana attenuata) to detect and direct root growth towards localized nutrient patches. Our findings demonstrate that directed root growth underlies foraging behavior, and that chemotropism and micronutrient-guided root placement are important factors shaping root architecture in nature.

MANUSCRIPT PROCESSING All manuscripts received will be subjected to an initial validity check, including the quality and the format, by the Manuscript Manager. Those that pass this checkpoint will be evaluated by an Editor-in-Chief who will assess the scientific content as well as the language to ensure that the manuscript is written in clear and concise English. If the Editor-in-Chief finds the manuscript acceptable it will then be assigned to the thematic Senior Editor, who will further evaluate the manuscript and then assign it to an Editor. The Editor assigns three or more peer reviewers for each manuscript. The reviewers evaluate the manuscript in terms of the importance of research questions, the rigor of the experimental evidence and protocols, and the significance of the conclusions. All manuscripts tentatively accepted will be forwarded to the Senior Editor for a final decision.

It is important to note that the Editor-in-Chief of JIPB reserves the right to change the final decision at any stage of submission. A decision letter will be emailed to the corresponding author once the Senior Editor and Editor-in-Chief have made a final decision. The corresponding author can view the comments provided by the reviewers, online. If the manuscript is accepted without revision, the editorial office will contact the corresponding author if additional files/documents are needed.

If the manuscript needs revision, the corresponding author will have to read the comments carefully and make appropriate changes, and explain point-by-point what has been changed, and why if the reviewer's recommendation has not been followed. Revised manuscript files should be uploaded using the manuscript handling system. A manuscript that contains good scientific content but requires extensive revision will, as a matter of JIPB policy, be declined. If the manuscript is declined with encouragement from the Editor to resubmit, the resubmission must be done online within the indicated time-frame. A note should be included indicating that it is a resubmission, with its previous tracking number clearly stated.

If at any time during the review process the corresponding author has a question regarding the status of a manuscript or the nature of the peer review process, the Manuscript Manager should be contacted at:. PROOFS The editorial office will notify the corresponding author via e-mail to electronically retrieve page proofs. The corresponding author will have access to one PDF file, which will contain: (a) PDF pages (includes figures and tables) and (b) a reprint order form.

The corresponding author then returns: (a) The proofread and corrected original proof, (b) Original figures, if applicable, and (c) A completed reprint order form. Although the editorial staff may change the wording based on their understanding, the corresponding author has ultimate responsibility for the final content of the manuscript.

The proof is the last opportunity to correct errors or omissions. With the exception of typographical or minor clerical errors, no changes will be made in the manuscript at the proof stage. You may correct any of the mistakes made by editorial staff, free of charge; however, correcting more than five of your own mistakes will be subject to additional charges (US$ 2 each), and potentially, re-evaluation by the Editor.
