The journal Hmeljarski bilten/Hop Bulletin is a domestic scientific/professional publication, issued by the Slovenian Institute of Hop Research and Brewing (IHPS) since 1994. It publishes papers written by Slovenian authors and authors from abroad in the field of agronomy, food science, ecology and rural development but, at the same time, the majority of contributions tend to be focused on hops and brewing.
All papers have a bilingual (Slovenian and English) abstract, title, keywords and titles of tables and figures. The content of contributions can be in Slovenian or English.
The magazine is included in the relevant international databases EBSCO Publishing (USA) and CABI Publishing (UK). It is published in full on the website of the IHPS, while printed copies are sent to all relevant libraries in Slovenia. It is thus accessible to all the interested public.
Publication of the full contact information of authors allows direct contact among researchers and experts, as well as students and others interested in more information and dialogue, thus enabling multidisciplinary connections. In terms of the co-authorship of contributions, the journal demonstrates the participation of experts and researchers of various fields.
Contributions should be sent to the editor, Dr. Barbara Čeh (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 25th October. Each paper is double, or triple if necessary, reviewed. Reviewers are chosen from the members of the Editorial Board, but if the topic covers a more specific area, the paper may be sent to an external expert for review.
