Editorial and publishing activities have a long tradition at ARÚB and have existed de-facto since the beginnings of the institute. In-house publishing is an important platform for quick and quality publication of the institute’s scientific results; it also enables decisions to be made on the number of copies and their use.
The comprehensive editorial concept is based on the continuity of several editorial series ranging from purely scientific works to popularisation and presentation outputs. The pivotal activity is the publication of the peer-reviewed journal Přehled výzkumů, which is indexed by the Scopus database. The publishing is financed from multiple sources. The three most important are the institute’s overheads, grant financing (e.g. Czech Science Foundation or Strategy AV21) and funds from the Editorial Board of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The form and direction of the publishing activity are coordinated by the eleven-member Editorial Board of ARÚB (contact: Mgr. Šárka Krupičková).
The institute’s editorial activity has recently been undergoing innovative development with the following priorities: publication of books in a form of monographs and collective monographs, increasing the number of books published in English, and improving digital access to the institute’s production (scientific works will be accessed online five years after their printed publication; the Přehled výzkumů journal is published directly in open access format). We also endeavour to gradually cultivate the typographic and graphic form of the books.
ARÚB has published approximately two hundred book titles since the 1950s. For a complete list, see the overview of our publications:
