In the interest of a fast and efficient course of the publishing process, please follow our guidelines for printing and electronic version of the submitted materials.

Technical guidelines for the preparation of texts before submitting them to the Publishing House:

  • The text should be written in Word, in DOC or RTF format, basic text in Times New Roman 12 point font, 1.5 line spacing, 2.5 cm margins
  • The submitted printout must be compatible with the electronic version delivered by e-mail or on an external storage medium
  • The printout should be one-sided, on white A4 paper
  • Continuous page numbering throughout the work (continuous pagination)
  • Drawings should be made in one of the following programs: CorelDraw, Illustrator or Excel. They should be written in vector form with the possibility of applying corrections.
  • Keep table formatting to a minimum.
  • We use italics (italic text) – apart from formulas (see below) – only in monograph titles, chapters, articles and foreign words (e.g. homo viator). We put the names of journals in quotation marks (eg “Management. Theory and practice”).
  • Among the dashes, there are two most often: a dash and a hyphen (hyphen). We use the hyphen only in complex words (socio-economic phenomena; Kowalska-Malinowska). In other cases, we put a half-pause. Examples: 2013-2015 (no spaces); pp. 112–122 (no spaces); “As a result – chaos was created” (here with spaces). We will definitely put a good half-pause by pressing CTRL and selecting “minus” from the digital part of the keyboard.
  • Numbers and titles of tables and figures should be written in bold, with a smaller font than the main text. (10 points, 1.0 distance)
  • Always provide the source under the table or drawing, eg “Source: own study”; “Source:” Statistical yearbook of the Central Statistical Office “, Warsaw 2012. No bold, reduced font 10 pt, space 1.0.

The traditional method of footnotes and bibliography is adopted in the journal Social Studies. (See See the tab: Information for authors and editors)
