Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences changed 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). 
Change of  the online submission system !!
Dear authors, reviewers, editors and co-editors,
this is to inform you that as of May 24, 2018 the journal Czech Journal of Animal Science starts to use the editorial system that is used by all other journals published by the Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences as the time has come that all has to be under one umbrella to make the entire administration unified and easier.  It will be a major change for the editors as well and we hope the transition will be as painless as possible. Nevertheless, your cooperation and patience will be appreciated.
