Proposed arrangements for proceedings l.jpg
Proposed Arrangements for Proceedings

  • Options for publishing the proceedings of the meeting as a book:

    - Agricultural systems

    - Book to be published by Springer

  • Journal option will require that papers should be written in the format of the journal ie., introduction, sections and conclusions.

  • Journal option also requires that all papers have to be peer reviewed ie., by two external reviewers and have to be revised as per the comments of the reviewers.

  • Journal option could also mean that the issue may not come out until end of 2006.
