The manuscript should be arranged according to the following pattern in two documents:
First document (in English, numbered lines, without personal informations)
- title (please use capital letters only when needed),
While writing the summary please keep in mind that it may be also reprinted separately by abstracting/indexing journals or databases. In research notes or review articles a short conventional abstract should be written instead of a structured summary.
The summary should be divided into small chapters:
- Background (Why the study was initiated? Why this type of study is needed? and What is the aim of the present paper?),
- Results, principal
- Conclusion (with a closing remarks—What is the importance of the present findings? and What directions it sets for future research?) Please note that the Conclusion is not a summary of the results, but a more general statement.
- 4-6 key words,
- Introduction, Materials and methods, Results, Discussion, tables, and figures. Figure captions (including full legend describing the figure and explaining all the symbols used) must be pasted below respective figures (do not repeat them). An excess of headings and subheadings should be avoided. Only generic and specific names should be set in italics. Any issue not covered by the present instruction should be resolved based on “The scientific style and format”. The CBE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers. Sixth Edition 1994, Cambridge University Press.
Second document, additional informations
- names of authors (with first names spelled out, middle names as initial, and last name CAPITALIZED),
- affiliations of all authors,
- ORCID id for all authors (if exist, see -> https://orcid.org/).
- full postal address (with e-mail addresses),
- Important! Obligatory! Funding Source Declaration (funding agency e.g. university or research grants and their source received in the course of study)
- Possibly Acknowledgements
- additionaly Polish spoken authors only: Title of the manuscript, keywords and structured summary in Polish
