The article should not be longer than 1 printing sheet.
Note! 1 printing sheet comprises 40,000 graphic characters, i.e. approx. 20–22 pages of typescript or 3,000 cm² of illustration material.
On the first page of the article the following should be specified in the prescribed order:
- the author’s first name and surname,

- key words in English and Polish,
- at the bottom of the page the annotation specifying the author’s/authors’ title(s) (academic degree), first name(s), surname(s), the name of the institute, faculty, university/institution (in English).
At the end of the article the following should be specified the list of references.
Please prepare the abstracts in both languages in a way that it could be located on the first page (each abstract should have up to 800 characters).
Please save the text file in .rtf or .doc format. Please do not write papers in .pdf format.
2. THE ILLUSTRATION MATERIAL
If the illustrative material is going to be delivered by the authors in the electronic form, it should have the following form:
Bit graphics (eg. scans of photographs, all kinds of pictures from digital cameras or collections on CD-R etc.)

We have the possibility of opening and processing files saved in the following programmes:

- Adobe Photoshop 7.0
- Corel Draw 9.0
- Adobe Illustrator 9.0
- MS Word 2002/XP
- Please, do not give us graphic files downloaded from the Internet because the picture resolution of such files is very small (72 dpi), which makes it impossible to print them properly (the required resolution is 300 dpi).
- Please do not deliver files (tables, charts, etc.) made in Word, in color, in particular, contain explanatory text color.

Italics should be used for:
- letters symbolizing numbers, variable and constant quantities as well as geometrical points;
- symbols for functions, e.g. f(x);
- letter symbols and letter abbreviations appearing in subsripts and superscripts (with the exception of two- or three-letter abbreviations, e.g. ikr , Xwe , Xwy , formed from the first letters of one word);
- symbol of the partial differential ∂, which can also be written in upright type.
Upright type (Roman type) should be used for:
- Arabic and Roman letters, also in subscripts and superscripts, e.g. x1;
- Greek letters, also in mathematical writing, e.g. α;
