The objective of Acta Agronomica Óváriensis is to publish scientific contributions in any field of agricultural and food sciences. These may be research papers on new results of scientific investigations (up to 16 pages including all illustrations), critical review articles summarizing the current state of art of a certain topic (up to 16 pages), or short contributions dealing with a particular question (2 to 4 pages).

The papers must be in English. (preferably American) or in Hungarian. In the case when English is not the authors` first language, the manuscript should be given to a native speaker of English for editing and proofreading (before submission).

The authors bear the sole responsibility for the content of their contributions. The Editorial Board assumes that by submitting their manuscripts the authors have not violated any internal rules or regulations of their institutions related to the content of the contributions and that they have not submitted the manuscript anywhere else. The acceptance of the paper obliges the authors not to publish the same material elsewhere.

Authors are requested to send 2 hard copies and electronic files of their manuscripts to

Manuscripts will be reviewed by two independent referees who remain unidentified for the authors. The Editor-in-chief will inform the authors whether or not the manuscript is acceptable for publication, and what modifications, if any, are necessary.

Please, follow the order given below when typing manuscripts. Only the manuscripts that conform to the following instructions will be considered.

For clearness the manuscript should be divided into the following sections: Title, Summary (with 3 to 6 keywords), Introduction, Materials and methods, Results and discussion, Conclusions, Abstract in Hungarian (if the paper is submitted in English) or in English (if the paper is submitted in Hungarian) with keywords and address of the author(s), Acknowledgments (if necessary), References, Address of the authors.

Figures and tables should be printed on separate sheets with their numbers and headlines at the top as well as legends below (when necessary). Their position should be marked in the text. XLS, JPG, TIF, GIF or BMP formats should be used for electronic submission. If a manuscript is submitted in Hungarian, all notices and legends should be translated in the following way:

1. táblázat. Az egynyári szélfű előfordulása a Fertő-Hanság-medence kukoricavetéseiben

Table 1. Occurrence of Mercurialis annua L. in maize fields in the Fertő-Hanság-basin

* a tenyészidőszak folyamán sem mechanikai, sem pedig kémiai gyomirtásban nem részesült

(1) location of survey, (2) the number of Mercurialis annua L. in sample squares, (3) average pc/4m2, *during the vegetation period neither mechanical nor chemical weed control was carried out

All figures (graphs, diagrams, photographs) and tables should be cited in the text and numbered consecutively throughout. Unmounted figures are preferred. All illustrations should be of good quality, well-contrasted and black and white. The values on the x- and y-axes must be clearly and precisely defined. SI units should be used.

Equations should be written in a separate line and numbered consecutively in parentheses at the right margin. The principle to use as few characters as possible is recommended.

Text has to be typed by 1.5 spacing with 2 cm margins on an A4 size paper using 12 pt Times New Roman font. Please do not use any header or footer. All titles and subtitles should be separated by empty rows. Give the full scientific name(s) of species used (in italic), as well as the cultivar (cv.) or variety (var.) wherever applicable.

The Title section should consist of the title, the full name(s) of the author(s), their affiliation(s) including only the headquarters of the institution(s). Address of the authors should contain full postal and e-mail addresses.

Authors bear the responsibility for the accuracy of the references; therefore, each reference should be thoroughly checked. All publications cited in the text should be presented in the References section, arranged in alphabetical order.

For an article: name(s) of author(s) in italics, year (in parentheses), title of article, name of journal, volume (bold), number (in parentheses) and pages:

- in the case of one author: e.g., Pocsai K. (1986): A lóbab vetőmagszükséglet csökkentési lehetőségeinek vizsgálata. Növénytermelés. 35, (1) 39-44.

- in the case of more Hungarian authors: e.g., Varga-Haszonits Z. – Varga Z. – Schmidt R. – Lantos Zs. (1997): The effect of climatic conditions on the maize production. Acta Agronomica Óváriensis. 39, (1-2) 1-14.

- in the case of more foreign authors: e.g., Alam, M.Z. - Stuchbury, T. - Naylor, R.E.L. - Paul, A.K. - Sarkar, N.C. (2004): Efficacy of supplemental calcium (Ca) on germination and early seedling growth of two modern rice cultivars differing in salt tolerance in paper towel method and in Petri dishes. Acta Agronomica Óváriensis. 46, (1) 41-51.

For a book: name(s) of author(s) in italics, year (in parentheses), title of the book, publisher and place of publication: e.g., Schmidt J. (1995): Gazdasági állataink takarmányozása. Mezőgazda Kiadó, Budapest.

- in the case of citing a chapter in a book:

e.g., Gimesi A. (1979): A lucerna vegyszeres gyomirtása. In Bócsa I. (szerk.): A lucerna termesztése. Mezőgazdasági Kiadó, Budapest.

Reference in the text should contain the name(s) of the author(s) in italics and year of publication:

- in the case of one author: e.g., Pocsai (1986);

- in the case of two authors: e.g., Pocsai and Szabó (1983);

- in the case of more than two authors: e.g., Schmidt et al. (1983);

- and when an already cited article is cited: Wagner (1979) cit. Fahn (1982).

If the name(s) of the author(s) cannot be fitted into the text: (Iváncsics 1971, Gergátz és Seregi 1985, Szajkó 1987). When referring to papers published in the same year by the same author, letters a, b, c, etc. should follow the year of publication.

Before publication, the journal may request technical and linguistic corrections from authors. Submission and publication are free of charge. The authors are expected to correct only typographical errors on the proofs. Any major changes in the text (such as additions) at that stage will be made at the author’s expense. The proofs should be returned to the Editorial Board within 72 hours. Instead of printed reprints, a file in PDF format will be sent to the authors.
