Manuscript submisison

Authors should submit a copy of their manuscript with a short summary and a list of keywords. All copy, including quotations, notes and references, must be double−spaced, allowing generous margins at top, bottom, and sides of page.

Tables should be typed on separate pages; please refer to each in numerical order in the text. Illustrations and figures should be also typed out on a separete sheet.

Please provide full names of authors, when citing them the first time in the text. Acronyms for names of organisations, institutions, etc. should be preceded by the full title.

Articles submitted in appropriate form will be refereed blind. Please exclude author's name, institutions, and clues to the author's identity that exist within the manuscript. A separate page should carry the title, and author's name and author's affiliation.

On a separate sheet, please provide a biographical description (see recent issues of Kwartalnik Pedagogiczny for examples) of the author; when there are more than one author, please submit biographical descriptions for all of them.
