Rules for the transfer


The punctuality and regularity of publication of subsequent journals is rated by the Ministry of Science and Education and is one of the basic requirements of the Scopus and Web of Science reference databases. The preparation of materials sent to WUP has a decisive impact on the course and duration of specific stages of the publishing process.

Below are the guidelines according to which materials for WUP should be prepared:

1. The editors of the journal provide the managing editor of scientific journals in WUP (ME) with a set of materials for each number of issues in the software version.

2. The editors of the journal designate one person for contact with the managing editor on matters related to the publishing process.

3. Materials must include:

  • table of contents, all articles with references prepared according to the rules adopted in the journal, reviews,
  • illustrations in separate editable files (jpg, tiff) described by the name of the author of the article and reference number in the text,
  • abstracts in English,
  • keywords in English,
  • authors' affiliations with the country appropriate for the affiliation,
  • affiliate contact details,
  • short notes about the authors,
  • authors' email addresses in the form of an Excel table - they will be used for contacts in publishing matters and for posting on the Internet.

  • Incomplete materials will not be accepted by WUP.

    In the event of improper preparation of the initial materials, as well as failure to meet the deadlines for corrections and / or exceeding the standard correction sizes by the editors of the journal, both the costs and the date of issue may change in relation to the initial assumptions.

    Form of the article and information it should contain

    The article files prepared by WUP for presentation in indexing databases are in PDF / A format, i.e. they are searchable. Thanks to this, reference database systems use not only the metadata describing the file, but also the content contained in it. Each article is treated as an independent publication. For these reasons, articles should contain relevant information and be properly constructed. Examples can be found here >>>
