Visegrad Journal on Bioeconomy and Sustainable Development is constantly trying to increase its quality and visibility and the registration of the journal in international databases (currently the registration procedure in COPERNICUS database is in progress). Series of meetings and discussions with experts have been initiated in order to support the journal and promote it internationally. As a result of the consultations it was recommended to grow number of submissions by inviting by e-mail researchers working in the same field, activating editors to search submissions, organizing special (focused) issues. In order to increase the quality, it was also recommended to reject more submissions and invite high-class specialists in the field as authors and members of the journal’s Editorial Advisory Board as well as solicit for review articles and short communications reflecting the hottest and the latest results in the field.
