Author Guidelines

Agricultural Informatics is the journal of the Hungarian Association of Agricultural Informatics and European Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture, Food and Environment. The purpose of the journal is to ensure publishing of research results and to support the information exchange between researchers and practical professionals. Only submissions by one of the authors will be accepted. The submitting author will take responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. In case of any technical problem during submission through the online system, the corresponding author can contact ... for support.
Terms of Submission
Paper can be submitted under the condition that it has not been published elsewhere (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis) and it is not currently under consideration by another journal. The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that the article's publication has been approved by all the co-authors. During the submission, an additional checklist must be verified by the corresponding author before it will be considered by the editor of the journal.
Peer Review All submissions are expected to meet standards of academic excellence and will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will initially be considered by an associate editor and, where it is appropriate, will be passed to the peer-reviewers.
