Each submitted scholarly article should have a summary (abstract) in English and in Polish (in case of non-Polish Authors it will be translated into Polish by the Editors).
Your summary should outline the main problem and conclusions presented in the article.
The abstract should be between 500 and 2,000 characters long. However, we encourage Authors to provide summaries of 800–1,200 characters.
If you plan to include figures in your article, you are responsible for taking care of their quality. Please note that we publish our issues in black and white.
Figures should be both embedded in the manuscript and sent as separate files.
For drawings in bitmap format, the minimal width is 1200 px, and the minimal height is 800 px. However, we encourage Authors to supply figures as vector graphics, the preferred formats being “PDF”, “EPS” and “AI”.
Each figure should have a caption describing what it presents and identifying the source of the illustration (in the case of submitting the Author’s own work, the caption should be: “Source: own work”).
