 WYTYCZNE DLA AUTORÓW

The article must be accompanied by a brief summary in Polish and English, keywords and biographical note of the authors (first name, last name, academic titles, affiliation, e-mail address, postal address for correspondence and telephone to the editor).

The article should be  divided into numbered subtitles, e.g. preface, introduction, experimental part (methods of testing, results and analysis), summary and conclusions.  Literature, to which the author refers to in the text, should be compiled at the end of the article in the following order: name (s), initials of the author (s), title of article, journal title, volume, number, year of publication, page number.

According to the recommendations of the MSH, evaluation of articles for the possibility of their publication is based on the following criteria:

1. Originality

  • whether the article contains updates regarding the topics presented,
  • contribution to the state of the art,
  • whether corresponds to the substantive level of the magazine,
  • whether the reported issues are important for the development of science and practical applications.

2. Layout

  • Whether the article presents a logical structure and a clarity of argument,
    • The title – is equivalent to the content of the article,
    • Summary – does it reflect the content of the article,
    • Introduction – whether it describes what the author intended to achieve and clearly presents the issues raised in the article (introduction may include a review of the literature on the topic, the description of the experiment, hypothesis, general plan of the experiment or methods used).
    • Test methods – detailed explanation how the results were obtained. It is also taken into account whether the test methods are appropriately selected, whether they are accurately described (if the methods are new), if the author has described accurately enough how to perform tests / measurements? Results – whether the author logically and clearly explains what has stated in trials?, or made a correct analysis of the results?
    • Results – whether the author logically and clearly explains what has stated in trials?, or made a correct analysis of the results?
    • Summary / Conclusions – whether contained statements / conclusions are supported by the results of research?, whether the author showed how the results relate to expectations and previous studies ?, or, whether the results confirm or contradict earlier theories?
    • Figures and tables: whether published figures and tables clearly illustrate the results of research and that are understandable to the reader?, or are relevant to illustrate the article?

Previous Studies

  • If an article contains the earlier studies, whether there are corresponding references?

4. Ethical Issues

  • Plagiarism: if the article is not a copy of another job?

5. Odpłatność za publikację

  • The volume of the article should not exceed 12 typewritten pages.

    • independence of opinion,
    • no conflict of interest, expressed in particular by the lack of direct personal or business relationships with the author of the article, or direct scientific cooperation in the past two years, preceding the year of preparation reviews
    • confidentiality as to the substantive content of materials and comments about them.

    To evaluate the articles in a foreign language, at least one of the appointed Reviewers must be affiliated to a scientific institution or foreign institution other than the author’s work.

Prosimy Autorów o pisanie prostych wzorów oraz oznaczeń w tekście z klawiatury. Wzory zawierające kreski ułamkowe, pierwiastki i inne symbole niedostępne z klawiatury muszą być wstawiane jako obiekt Microsoft Equation 3.0. Wykaz literatury (w nawiasach kwadratowych, na końcu artykułu) powinien być utworzony w stylu Chicago:

Sformalizowany zapis bibliograficzny:

autor #1 nazwisko #1 imię, autor#2 imię #2 nazwisko . rok . „tytuł” . czasopismo. tom (zeszyt) : strony.

Proszę zwrócić uwagę na oddzielenie partii danych kropkami, natomiast cudzysłowu używamy przy oznaczeniu tytułu artykułu. Zastosowanie tej techniki zdecydowanie polepszy czytelność wpisu. Numer zeszytu wpisujemy w nawiasie. Uwaga! Znaku dwukropka używamy przed wstawieniem numeru stron, na których został zamieszczony artykuł w danym czasopiśmie. Wyjątek – jeśli imię autora nie można napisać w pełnej wersji, prosimy wpisać inicjał imienia.

Pozycje literatury na końcu artykułu powinny być ułożone w porządku alfabetycznym, w nawiasach kwadratowych, powołania w tekście również w nawiasach kwadratowych.

W przypadku publikacji w czasopiśmie oczekujemy: nazwiska i imienia autorów, roku, tytułu artykułu, tytułu czasopisma, zeszytu i stron, na której znajduje się publikacja.
