Qualifying papers for publication

Articles submitted to the editors should meet the editorial requirements ( see: the standard form ).
Submissions made to the editors of the Journalshould include an electronic version of the manuscript in a WORD and PDF file, send to the e-mail address: zeszyty.naukowe@wso.wroc.plby the corresponding author. In addition, following documents should be attached to each article:
  • signed statement of consent to the publication of the article in the ,,Journal of Science of the Gen. Tadeusz Kościuszko Military Academy of Land Forces” ( Annex 1 );
  • statement that authors became familiar with the ghostwriting procedure and on the percentage share of individual authors ( Annex 2 );
  • figures in separate files - format specified in the manuscript preparation

Articles that won’t meet the above requirements will be returned to the authors.

In case of the papers prepared by more than one author, the corresponding author should be indicated, with whom the editors would correspond. If the publication lacks such information, editors will correspond with the first author – it applies to the publications where there is more than one author.
Original materials to be published in the ,,Journal of Science of the Gen. Tadeusz Kosciuszko Military Academy of Land Forces” are subject to a content-related assessment made by members of the Scientific Committee and then independent reviewers holding an academic degree or title.
In the next stage, the selected members of the Scientific Committee and thematic editors would conduct a preliminary substantive evaluation. At this point, Editorial office creates the list of independent reviewers. After preparing the list of reviewers, the paper is reviewed by two independent reviewers (experts in the specific field of science), with a scientific degree.
Publication in the Journal depends on obtaining a positive review from two independent reviewers. If the reviews are contradictory, editors appoint a third reviewer. Author of the paper is informed of the outcome of the reviews.
The editorial staff, having consulted the Scientific Committee, may qualify for publication reports from conferences, seminars and symposiums organised by the Academy or reviews of books on the issues corresponding to the scientific and educational specialisation of the Academy. Such papers should meet the following criteria:
  • they cannot exceed 4 pages of the Journal (apart from the Academy’s chronicle for a given year);
  • they should present important accounts of science or organisational projects carried out at the Academy;
  • they must be included in a separate chapter.
The Journal’s editorial staff may edit the material submitted, abridge or complete it (after this has been agreed on by the author) or may refuse to qualify it for publication.
If the review shows that the paper requires changes, the Editorial secretary returns paper to the author and sets a deadline for making necessary changes. Author who sends back the changed paper is required to indicate the corrections that have been applied. Lack of the response would be considered as giving up publishing in the ”Journal of...”.
The editorial staff may refuse to publish original materials (apart from special cases specified in separate regulations) without giving reasons, in particular in the following cases:
  • the subject of the paper does not correspond to the fundamental thematic scope of the Journal;
  • the work exceeds the limit on the number of pages and the author does not agree that necessary cuts are made in the manuscript;
  • the author does not agree that all necessary cuts suggested by the Scientific Committee, the reviewer or the editorial staff are made;
  • the text and the illustrative material do not meet technical requirements specified by the editorial staff.
  • content  infringe the law (secret protection rules, media law, copyright law, etc.);
  • paper have not obtained a final positive opinion (except for works and materials that in accordance with paragraph 7 do not have to be reviewed).
After the final decision of publishing the paper in the ,,Journal...” and posting an information in the “In preparation” tab, Editorial office sends an information to the author and informs him/her about the possibility of final changes, which cannot exceed 1%. Lack of the response would be considered as a permission to publish the paper in its present form.
Authors that publish the results of research obtained with invasive research methods or tests on animals will make a representation in which they represent that the research or tests were conducted in accordance with the rules of ethics in science and were approved of by a local ethics committee.
