Important Czech Republic Organizations Join Worldwide One Health Movement
Recently the One Health Initiative Autonomous Pro Bono team was contacted by Prof. MVDr. Karel Hruska, CSc., Manager and editor, CENTAUR Global Network and Editor-in-Chief of Veterinarni Medicina advising us that two major Czech Republic organizations are strong supporters of the One Health concept:
- Biomedical Technology, Epidemiology and Food Safety Global Network (Veterinary Research Institute, Brno, Czech Republic)
- Veterinarni Medicina, the international journal for biomedical and veterinary sciences
Dr. Hruska said “The network has about 3000 members, who have registered their interest in 27 fields. A knowledge dissemination is running from 1997, the distance learning e-courses on Good Research Practice from 2000. People from 45 countries, PhD students of medical and veterinary medical sciences, pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular biology, agriculture etc., have participated in the courses in the last decade. A global dissemination of the network members and the visitors to the web page http://centaur.vri.cz is available at: http://www3.clustrmaps.com/counter/maps.php?url=http://centaur.vri.cz”
“The journal is published in English by the Czech Academy of Agricultural Sciences as an open access international journal without page fee with full text papers available. The journal is indexed in the Web of Science database and Web of Knowledge Journal Citation Reports (impact factor 2011 is 0,748) http://vetmed.vri.cz.
