INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING THE MATERIAL

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING THE MATERIAL FOR PUBLISHING OF THE WARSAW UNIVERSITY PRESS (WUP)



Leads for authors and translators



1. Substantive preparation of material for WUP

 

1.1. Main text

  1. Division into chapters and sub-chapters should be used consistently with the chapter number (sub-chapter) and its title; should be consistent with the adopted concept of organizing the content of the book.

  2. Substantially reasonable distinctions, uniform and consistently used: bold (to indicate distinguished symbols, concepts, etc.), italics (for titles, defined concepts, new terms, inclusions and words in foreign languages), small caps.

  3. For the convenience of the author, reviewer, editor, the so-called typescript, i.e. an electronic file containing the publication text saved in a text editor with illustrations, must be provided. It should be remembered that illustrations embedded in the text are not suitable for use in preparing the file for printing,and therefore all illustrations should also be provided in separate files (see section 2 below).

 

1.2. Quotations

  1. Quotations within the text should be enclosed in quotation marks, written in plain text, and the source information in the footnote. If, within the quotation enclosed in quotation marks, there are fragments having their own quotation marks (quotation in the quotation), the latter should be replaced by angular quotation marks «».

  2. Quotes longer than 3 lines of text should be separated from the main text and written from a new paragraph, without quotation marks, smaller than the main text with a degree of writing (Times 11), plain text. Finally, the footnote number or reference should be placed in parentheses.

  3. The words or phrases entered in the quote should be enclosed in square brackets and provided with information about who the given supplement comes from, given inside the brackets (e.g. the author's initials, author's note, trans. note).

  4. Leaving a part of the text in the quote should be signaled with three dots in square brackets [...].

  5. If a fragment of more than two pages is left between two parts of the citation, treat such a case as two separate quotes, enclose in separate quotation marks and provide your own cross-references.

  6. Titles of books, films, plays, visual arts and music in the quote should also be italicized. In case of introducing distinctions not originating from the author of the cited work (semi-bold font, underline), their authorship should be specified in square brackets or footnote on the page (e.g. underline mine. - A.A.).

 

1.3. Names

  1. Record of proper names, surnames, first names, geographical names etc. should be used according to the rules given in Uniwersalny słownik języka polskiego, t. 1-4, red. S. Dubisz, WN PWN, Warszawa 2003 and subsequent editions, Nowy słownik poprawnej polszczyzny, red. A. Markowski, WN PWN, Warszawa 2005 and subsequent editions, and Nowy słownik ortograficznym, red. E. Polański, WN PWN, Warszawa 2005 and subsequent editions; in doubtful cases, please contact the PWN language counseling center http://www.słowniki.pwn.pl/poradnia.

  2. In the case of surnames, the full name (not initial) should be given in the first occurrence, then the surname itself (without initial). The exception is different people with the same surname - then we keep the initial of the name in subsequent appearances.

 

2. Illustrative material


  1. Image files should be saved in one of the following formats
    - photos, illustration scans: eps, jpg, tif, bmp, png;
    - drawings, charts, diagrams, diagrams, maps etc itp. eps, cdr, ai.

  2. Graphic files should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, with the exception of scanned line illustrations, which should have a minimum resolution 600 dpi.

  3. Graphic files to be included in the publication should be attached in a separate catalog, numbered according to the order in which they appear in the work (according to the numbering used in it and the page of the text file (e.g. Fig. 2.1, p. 50; Fig. 1.15, p. 123), which the illustration should appear in. Files should be prepared in accordance with the instructions for preparing the illustration

  4. All descriptions in graphic files should be unified in terms of language, terminology, and technology (typeface, font size, distinctions, e.g. bold, italics).

  5. Tables should be included in the text and marked with consecutive numbers. The numbering of the tables should be separate from the numbering of illustrations, drawings and charts.

  6. Captions for illustrations: photos, drawings, charts, diagrams, maps, etc. are placed under the given object, captions / table titles – above the object.

  7. The work should be accompanied by lists of all illustrations and tables with the sources from which they were taken.

 

3. Footnotes


3.1. Traditional - at the bottom of the page:

  1. numbering within the chapter or the whole work should be consistent with the adopted book concept,

  2. footnotes are placed at the bottom of the page,

If the author's name appears in the sentence, only the year and pages can be given in the appeal (uniformly throughout the work):

np.: Kowalski states, .............. (2000: 123)

 

Editor's name, edited year: page,,

np.: (Cropsey, red. 1964: 234)

General rules for reference:

b. In the references for Harvard footnotes, order several works by the same author by year of publication (from the oldest), and not by alphabet.
c. Names of authors are repeated (we do not replace them with dashes).
d. Abbreviations: page p. , numberno, issue i., volume v., ed., trans. (from English names).
e. When quoting Russian surnames, initials of Russian letters Е, Ё, Ю, Я are given: Je .; Jo .; Ju .; I.
f. Slavonic titles should be transliterated (according to the PWN Słownik ortograficzny edited by E. Polański).
g. Non-Polish letters are placed in accordance with the English alphabet, "as if there were no diacritical characters" (Cackiewicz, Čapek, Cat). (Cackiewicz, Čapek, Cat).

6.2. Non-English letters are placed in accordance with the English alphabet, as if there were no diacritical characters (Cackiewicz, Čapek, Cat).

8. Title page


The title page should contain the names of the author, scientific editor, translator and the full title (with subtitle).


9. Other elements


The main text should be accompanied by other elements adopted in the book concept, e.g. dictionaries of terms, exercise keys.


10. Technical preparation of the material for the publishing house:


10.1. The volume of the prepared text is determined based on the number of characters (1 author's sheet is 40,000 characters with spaces). Work volume should be calculated as follows:
- open the Tools tab
- choose Word statistics from the drop-down list
- with the option With footnotes and endnotes enabled we read the number of characters with spaces.


10.2. 12 pt font, preferably Times New Roman or Arial, uniform throughout the work (also regarding footnotes and references), the text should not be justified (should be moved to the left margin).


10.3. The entire text, i.e. all chapters, parts of the thesis and additional materials, should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the publication.


10.4. The electronic version of the text should be saved in one of the following formats: MS Word, RTF or TeX / LATeX (for mathematical works).


11. Method of submitting materials to the WUP


Materials intended for issue should be sent to WUP by e-mail or via the WeTransfer application or delivered to a pendrive.
In the case of very heavy files (containing a lot of graphic elements) or containing so-called special characters (mathematical, physical, chemical formulas, letters of non-Polish alphabets) it is recommended to use the WeTransfer.
After agreeing with the leading editor and obtaining the access password, it is possible to place files on the WUP FTP disk.
