Publishing guidelines

The CCAFS publishing policy is aligned with the CGIAR's Open Access and Open Data principles. We provide guidance on how to publish in open access peer-reviewed journals, as well as how to publish in CCAFS' own publications series. CCAFS has adopted ICRAF's style guide for writers and editors, which guides how to format references, and proper language usage.
