1. The title page
The title page should only contain the title Without the author’s name and start in the twelfth verse, and then the text formatted according to the rules. A separate sheet of paper should include the author’s name and surname and the full name and address of the institution with the telephone, fax, and e-mail addresses. If there are several authors you are asked to indicate the main author responsible for correspondence. If the main author has not been indicated the ﬁrst listed will play that role.
2. The main text
The manuscript should be typed in a word processor (MS WORD), in the A-4 format with standard margins (2.5 cm margin on top, bottom, right, and left), the font 11 Times New Roman, single-spaced, spacing 0.0 before and 0.0 after. The entire article (with computer generated ﬁgures and tables all in the B-5 format) should not exceed 12 pages in the A-4 format (up to 6,000 words - if the article consists of the text only).
The article should be preceded by an abstract (100-150 words) and four or ﬁve key words, for instance: climate change, Poland, etc. Tables and ﬁgures should be placed at the end of the manuscript and the authors should clearly indicate where they should ﬁt in the text. Do not use footnotes. If necessary number them in the text (1), (2), and insert the Notes section on the last page just before the List of References. The articles are accepted in good English only. The spelling should follow the Oxford English Dictionary.
3. Tables, ﬁgures and illustrations
The tables should be numbered using Arabic numbers, and the title must be placed above the table. If footnotes are needed, the authors should mark them with letters a, b, c, etc.; and place the symbols and sources below the tables. The footnotes, symbols, and the sources should be written in font 8, italics.
Figures should be marked as “Fig(s)" when the abbreviation is placed in brackets (examples: Fig. 1, Figs 1 and 2A, B), however the entire word “Figure(s)” must be used in the text. They should be numbered using Arabic numbers. The illustrations should be of such quality that the editor would not have to correct them (computer generated - CorelDRAW). The size should match the B-5 format (horizontally and vertically). They should be black and white. Both drawings and photographs are considered as ﬁgures. Figures captions should be located below each ﬁgure (the example of ﬁgure caption: Fig. 1. Location of study area: A — geomorphological map: 1- kame, 2 — till plain; B - geological cross-section: 1 - till, 2 – sand
The authors should place the title of the illustration below the illustration with the symbols and the source, etc. all written in font 8, italics. The illustrations should be in the resolution of 300 and over 300 dpi in the tif format. Should you e-mail the article, make sure you provide illustrations in separate ﬁles.
4. The list of references
The text should quote the authors, the year of publication and the page (if it is a citation), e.g. Hurrell 1995; Kowal and Zielinski 2006; Kowalski et al. 2007, and the full credits should be included in the "List of References" at the end of the main text. Should the same author and year re-occur, the letters a, b, c, etc. must be added. An example:
