Manuscripts should be submitted electronically via the journal's Editorial System. Author(s) declare that the manuscript has not been published elsewhere or is not being considered for publication elsewhere. By submitting your manuscript to this journal you accept that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism. All the detected cases of scientific misconduct will be exposed, including notification of relevant institutions. Editors initially verify the manuscript and decide to review it, send it back for adjustment, or reject it.
All submissions to the Journal should be written in American English. The Journal does not offer translation services. In cases English is judged as inadequate, Editors may reject the manuscript or direct the Author(s) to seek editorial services to bring the work to minimum standards for the review process.
The Editors send the anonymous version of the manuscript to two (2) expert reviewers in the field. After receiving reviews, the Editors decide to accept the manuscript, send it back to the Author(s) for corrections, or to reject it. The Author(s) receive the anonymous version of the review. When a manuscript is returned to the corresponding author for revision, it should be returned to the Editorial Office within 14 days; otherwise it may be considered withdrawn. The manuscript is initially accepted for publication and the corresponding Author receives an email with a link to the License Agreement. Each Author is required to fill it in, scan and the corresponding Author shall upload the scanned Agreements to the Editorial System. Then, each Author sends the original copies of the License Agreement to the Editorial Office (in Poland). The manuscript will not be published unless we receive the printed version of the License Agreement from all Authors. A native speaker copy-edits the manuscript. The Author(s) receive the manuscript for the galley proof, which should be sent back to the Editorial Office within 3 working days; otherwise the publication will be withdrawn or published without the Author's corrections. Any alterations in galley proofs, other than the correction of printer’s errors, are made on the author’s responsibility. The Author(s) may not make any changes to the galley proof that exceed 3% of the manuscript's volume, unless these changes have been consulted with the Publisher. Changes that involve, among others, adding new paragraphs to the text or replacing them with new paragraphs of the existing text shall be acceptable only after the Publisher's consent, provided that these changes do not significantly increase the cost of editing and typesetting, and do not jeopardize the release date of the manuscript.
