UWB University Press

Our aim is to enable the University's staff and departments to present their professional activities and results to the public. In this way, we try to support the scientific life of the University. The editorial activities of the University are governed by the Rector's Directive No. 3R/2017 (Czech only, as amended in July 2021).
