For Authors
 
  1. Papers for publication in journal „Engineering of Biomaterials / Inżynieria Biomateriałów" should be written in English. Minimum length of manuscript - 8 pages.
  2. All articles are reviewed. Non-reviewed articles, including conference materials, will be printed in special issues at the end of the year.
  3. The authors should enclose a statement, that the article is original, has not been published previously and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
  4. The Editors lead the policy of "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship" prevention.
    - "Ghostwriting" is the case of contributing a publication without revealing one's participation as one of the authors or without reference to their role in the acknowledgments in the publication.
    - "Guest authorship" (honorary authorship) is the case of insignificant contribution of the author or its complete absence and nevertheless being the author or co-author of the publication.
    The Editors require that authors should reveal individual co-authors' contribution to the publication (a statement concerning individual contribution should be provided, i.e. the information who is the author of the concepts, assumptions, methods, etc. used to prepare the publication). However, the corresponding author will chiefly be held responsible.
  5. A manuscript should be organized in the following order:
    • TITLE
    • Authors and affiliations
    • Abstract (200-250 words) - it should reflect the structure of the article (introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion, conclusions)
    • Keywords (4-6)
    • Introduction
    • Materials and Methods
    • Results and Discussions
    • Conclusions
    • Acknowledgements
    • References
  6. Authors' full names and affiliations with postal addresses should be given. If authors have different affiliations use superscripts ¹,².
  7. The papers (including figures, tables, references) should be submitted as MS WORD file (Arial 9 point size font with 1.5 line spacing). Minimum length of manuscript - 8 pages. SI units should be used.
  8. All illustrations, figures, graphs etc. preferably in black and white or grey scale should be additionaly presented in separate electronic files (format .jpg, .gif., .tiff, .bmp). High-resolution figures are required for publication, at least 300 dpi. All figures must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the paper and captioned below. They should be referenced in the text (e.g. FIG. 1, FIG. 2a, TABLE 1). The captions of all figures should be submitted on a separate sheet.
  9. References should be listed at the end of the article. Number the references consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. References should contain the authors' names and initials, full title of the paper, name of the journal (full or using Journal Abbreviations Index), volume number, year of publication, first and last page numbers.
