If the article/book has DOI number, the author should include it in the references.
Accuracy and completeness of references are the responsibilities of the author.
References in the text should consist of the name followed by the year of publication in parentheses (if more than 2 authors, please give the first author's name followed by et al. and year). All references cited in the text must be included in the reference list, and vice versa.
Figures must be submitted in electronic file, preferably saved as eps, jpg, cdr, tif. We can not accept figures created in Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, Excel as they are low-resolution graphics, not suitable for reproduction. The resolution for graphic files must be: 250-300 dpi for colour and grey scale images, 600-900 dpi for black and white only. Line weights and lettering should be suitable for reduction. Please consult the recent issue of our journal as to the size of the figures.
Tables should be created with Word's Insert Table function. Avoid tables built with tab key or as pictures. Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and referred in the text. The header should be placed on top of the table. Please make sure that the size of the tables is adequate to the layout of the journal's page (16x24,7 cm).
Final version of the paper
All manuscripts are peer-reviewed by at least two referees and will not be processed further until favorable referees' reports are obtained. Blind Peer Review system is applied.
Once the review/revision process is finished, and the paper is accepted for publication, the corresponding author may be asked to prepare its final version, according to the template available at: http://pub.igf.edu.pl/. We will then inspect it and make some editorial adjustments (if necessary). The pdf file will be sent back for proof-reading.
