Entering results into the OBD

The deadline for entering results for 2023 into the OBD database is 15 February by 24:00. Results entered later will not be taken into account in the faculty's 2024 budget allocation. Please upload the results on an ongoing basis so that they can be continuously checked and, if necessary, returned for correction. We also ask for careful and complete reporting of individual results (e.g. surnames of Czech co-authors should be given with diacritics together with first names, reference to the full text of the article and not just the abstract, etc.), as the records subsequently transferred to RIV are the calling card of our faculty.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
