Communications in Biometry and Crop Science was established at the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Agriculture and Biology at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences - SGGW (www.sggw.pl), and 80th anniversary of the Department of Biometry of SGGW, which was created by one of the most recognized statisticians of 20th century, Prof. Jerzy Neyman. We would like CBCS to refer to his outstanding achievements in the field of applying mathematical statistics and its applications to agricultural sciences.
Biometry and Crop Science is on-line published (http://agrobiol.sggw.waw.pl/cbcs) international
journal connected with biometry and crop science. The official publisher
is the Faculty of Agriculture and Biology of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW). In CBCS, the following types of articles are published
Regular Research Articles. These are original papers that make theoretical and/or experimental contributions to any scientific field covered by CBCS. The findings should be original rather than routine; results only confirming previously known facts are normally not accepted. Preference is given to short papers from the standpoint of review and publication (long papers may require extra review time; shorter papers are prepared first for publication). Long papers are accepted if the length is indeed necessary to present the research.
Review Articles. These are review papers that are concerned with any area covered by CBCS. The authors should be aware that the time required for reviewing such papers would be longer than reviewing regular articles.
Software Tricks and Tips. These (usually short) papers discuss topics concerned wth statistical software; code is more than welcome, especially when it is non-trivial or contains solutions that are not readily available. Of interests are especially papers that will be found useful by non-programmers. The section covers topics connected with applications of biometry in crop science.
Notes and Perspectives. Notes are usually short research papers (including one-environment experiments), which contain results of less importance than regular papers. Perspectives cover discussions of issues important for crop science and biometry. If you have some comments or an idea about an issue concerned with CBCS research fields, and want to convey your opinion to others who might benefit from it, consider writing a Perspective type of paper for CBCS.Letters to the Editor. They represent a means of commenting on any paper published in Communications in Biometry and Crop Science.
Book Reviews. CBCS aims to publish book reviews that are either strictly concerned with areas covered by the journal or that are closely related to crop science and/or biometry. Generally, the books to be considered should be of a recent publication date (within a couple of years of publication); however, interesting reviews of older books, which have or may have great importance for the CBCS readership, may also be considered. Authors who would like a review of their book published in CBCS should contact the Managing Editor.
No charges are required from both readers and contributors. Therefore the authors should be conscious that they can be asked to review the articles for CBCS.
Our policy ensures that only the papers of high quality will be published; on the other hand, the papers are published rapidly. Therefore the readers are able to learn the very recent results in the fields covered by CBCS. Quick publishing of papers in CBCS results from the following policy:
The submitted manuscripts should not exceed the required length (appropriate for the type of the manuscript).
Any correspondence is made via e-mail.
The authors must prepare their manuscripts
subject to the guidelines given in the
Guidelines for authors. The authors of the manuscripts that are
incorrectly prepared will be asked to reorganize them as it is required.
Once the paper is accepted for publication and properly prepared by the author, it is published on-line (in pdf format).
The journal's policy is that single-environment experiments may be published as a NOTE.
The contents of papers published in CBCS are entirely the responsibility of the authors; CBCS assumes no responsibility or liability therefore.
