1. Submission of manuscripts

Papers submitted in electronic format (by Editorial System) will be considered for publication in Environment Protection Engineering. They should deal with original research and may contain experimental as well as theoretical results. Engineering papers are also welcome provided their topics warrant wide attention.
Papers considered for publication in Environment Protection Engineering must not have been previously published elsewhere. Each submitted manuscript will be reviewed, the final decision concerning its acceptance resting with the editors.
The Editors reserve the right to apply charges for alterations in proof other than the correction of printer’s errors and even shorten the text, if unavoidable.

1.1. First submission

PDF and DOC files containing text, references, figures, tables etc. should be provided. When size of a file exceeds acceptable limits, the manuscript can be split into a several files (this should be clearly indicated in the covering letter).

1.2. Final submission

Upon acceptance, the corresponding author will be requested to submit the following material (on CD, via e-mail or by post):

  • A DOC or RTF file containing the final version of the text, references, tables and figure captions. The content of the file should be identical with that of the hard copy, and should exactly match the version seen and accepted by the referee(s).
  • File(s) with figures (plots, schemes of technological processes) in appropriate file formats. The acceptable formats include vector files such as XLS, OPJ, cdr (Excel, Origin, CorelDraw), also exported as EPS, EMF or WMF files. Drawings submitted in tiff or jpg formats (bitmaps, raster graphics), even if exported as EPS, EMF or WMF files, will not be accepted. Bitmaps are acceptable only in the case of photographs (greyscale only). The resolution of the photographs should not be lower than 300 dpi (estimated for the size in which they are expected to be reproduced).
  • A PDF file containing the complete manuscript (text, literature, tables, figures, etc). The file should be carefully checked as it will serve as a hard copy in case of doubts. The contents of the PDF file should exactly match the material in other files.

2. Organisation of the manuscript

Paper text must be typewritten in double spacing with the font size of 12 points.

2.1. The first page

The first page should be organised as follows:

    • Author names and affiliations.
    • Title of the paper.
    • E-mail (only the corresponding author).
    • Abstract (not more than 100 words).

2.2. Headings, sub-headings

These should be placed in the main text as appropriate. The authors are encouraged to conform to the standard sequence of sections (e.g., Introduction; Experimental; Results; Discussion; Conclusions; etc.)

2.3. References

In the main text, references (maximum 20-25) should be numbered consecutively by Arabic numerals in square brackets (e.g., [1]; [3, 4]; [7–11]). Each reference should contain names of all authors. The list of references should follow the main text and should have the following format:

    For a paper in a journal: author(s), paper title, journal abbreviation, year, volume (number), page.
    [1] Kitamura T., Yokoyama M., Hole drift mobility and chemical structure of charge-transporting hydrazone compounds, J. Appl. Phys., 1991, 69 (2), 821.
    For a book: Author(s), title, Publisher, place, year of issue.
    [2] Swalin R.A., Thermodynamics of Solids, Wiley, New York, 1962.
    For a chapter in a book: Author(s), title of the chapter in English, [In:] Author(s) or Editors of the book, its title in English, Publisher, place of issue, year, page(s), (original language if not English)
    [3] Wild U.P. and Renn A., Spectral Hole-Burning, [In:] H. Drr, H. Bouas-Laurent (Eds.), Photochromism. Molecules and Systems, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 1990, p. 930.
    [4] Electrochemistry, [In:] I. Barycka, K. Skudlarski, Fundamentals of Chemistry, Ofic. Wyd. PWr., Wrocław, 2001, p. 233–264 (in Polish).
Journal abbreviations should be in accordance with the standards of Chemical Abstracts.

2.4. Equations

Equations referred to in the text should be numbered consecutively at the right hand margin with Arabic numerals in parentheses.

2.5. Figures and tables

Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals, and denoted in the text. The figures and tables may be embedded in the text or their approximate positions should be indicated. In any case, they should also be attached separately as original files. The list of figure captions should follow the list of references at the end of the text. The tables should be planned so as their final widths do not exceed 13 cm.
