1.       The paper should be delivered in the digital format, sent on a diskette or by e-mail. The digital form of the paper should be complemented with the printed version (one copy), which is treated as the original of the paper.
2.       The graphical material (pictures, graphs) should be also delivered in the digital format apart from the printed version on paper or tracing paper - independent of the pictures inserted into the text in the editor. Our requirement for the pictures is that they should be vector pictures made in the following programs: Coreldraw version 3.0-5.0. Grapher for DOS (or for Windows), or at least binary ones (TIF, PCX, BMP). The pictures which have only been scanned and require retouching are not accepted.
3.       The paper can be typed in any editor, but we recommend the following programs: WORD (version 2000 for Windows or previous ones), or, if WORD is not available,  WRITE (for Windows) WORD PERFECT (version 6.0 for Windows). We accept diskettes 3.5 and CDs.


1.       The text is to be typed with the following rules being observed: top margin 4.7cm; bottom margin 5.4cm; left 4.2cm; right 3.7cm; heading 3.9cm. The text should be aligned to the left or right margin, and typed using the font Times Roman 11pkt with a single space. The type Times Roman is the only one acceptable. Descriptions of Figures with the size 10pkt, and the same with Table headings.
2.       The main title (capital letters) and subtitles in bold type. Under the main heading, names and surnames of the authors are to placed followed by the address of the institution. This fragment is to be centered.
3.       Please, enclose a summary of 100-200 words.
4.       Paragraph indentations are to be marked using the tabulator only (the tabulator is to be used also in the case of other types of indentation). The space button used for that purpose is not allowed.
5.       The button ENTER is to be used only when we finish a given paragraph and we start a new one (all headings, or supporting information in the form of points, bullets, etc., are treated as separate paragraphs).
6.       A word is not to be divided into syllables, and single letters at the end of the line are unacceptable.
7.       The space button is to be used in the following cases:
a)      to separate the words,
b)      after a dot, comma, exclamation mark, colon, semicolon etc.,(and never before these marks).
8.       The space button must not be used within brackets if they are not used to separate particular words – a bracket is a part of the first and the last word of the text within the brackets. The same procedure is to be applied in the case of inverted commas.
9.       We follow the instruction of a given editor involving the superscript or subscript. When we place the number of a subsequent footnote in the text, it should be presented in the form of a digit without additional characters, e.g. brackets.
10.   In order to write the text within brackets we use, depending on the needs, parentheses or square brackets. We never use “/”
11.   When typing the text we ignore the ability of the program to produce so called generated texts (footnotes, reference marks, indexes, etc.) We also exclude the option used to differentiate inverted commas used in printing.
12.   Footnotes and tables are to be written as separate files. The pictures are not to be delivered in the format bigger than the required page format.
13.   The literature, numbered in square brackets, in the order it is quoted, should be placed as in the examples:
