About the book

This book aims to investigate the recent advances in the ensilage technologies through the results obtained for several forage crops used around the world as well as to bring the new perspectives for using chemical and microbial additives to making silages well preserved. It will present new additives with great potential to be used in many types of silages. Chemical and microbial additives have been widely used to control undesirable fermentation, as well as to ensure high aerobic stability. However, some new additives are being studied with great expectations. We intend to describe the different types of silos used in all conditions both in large and in small scale and how to control the losses during the fermentation process and after silos opening.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum Cvitan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
