Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences changes to double-blind reviewing

The Publishing Board of the CAAS is pleased to announce its movement to a double-blind review process  (November 1, 2018).
Authors and reviewers will be anonymous to each other. Submission of anonymized version of the papers (manuscripts) is for all authors that wish to publish at CAAS user friendly and similar to other publishing houses in the Czech Republic and abroad.

We believe that the movement will be positively accepted amongst you, authors, and will encourage you to furtherly submit your original papers with scientific results to our renowned journals.
