As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

The authors are responsible for obtaining and submitting to the Editor permission to reproduce in their text illustrative materials covered by copyright.

Submission of the text for printing means an agreement  to the printing without receiving royalties in exchange for the copy of the publication. The Editor reserves the right to the final decision regarding the text for the print.

We ask for consistent application of principles, which significantly accelerate prepress.


Need to check the DOI number

Since the magazine is available in the open access resources, editorial office is required to check with each article selected for publication, whether bibliographic references cited in the text (footnotes, bibliographies) are accompanied with DOI numbers by the publishers,  and place such a number in the bibliographic description of a cited publication. Editorial office asks the authors to check the availability of cited works in open access and to enter DOI number. The easiest way to check the DOI numbers is to look up publishers and editors websites relevant to the referenced articles, also on CrossRef website:

Therefore, bibliographic entry is as follows: Szulakiewicz W., Ego-dokumenty i ich znaczenie w badaniach naukowych, „Przegląd Badań Edukacyjnych” 2013, nr 16, s. 65-84,
