Instructions for Authors

Instruction for authors

Preparation of the paper

General: The manuscript should be written in English. It should be typed using 12 p TNR font with 1.5 line spacing, on single-sided A4 sheets with 2 cm margins. The manuscript should not exceed 20 pages including tables and figures.

The first page and the main text: The first page of the article should contain: (1) the title of the article, (2) the name, academic merits, affiliation and e-mail of each author, (3) the name and the address of the author to whom correspondence, proofs and reprints should be sent, (4) a summary of 50-150 words, (5) a list of key words (not to exceed 8). The main text should be divided into numbered (1, 2, etc.) and titled sections and, if needed, into subsections (1.1, 1.2, ... in Section 1, 2.1, 2.2, ... in Section 2, etc.). An extended abstract of 200-300 words is required on a separate sheet. Polish authors are requested to enclose Polish translation of the abstract.

Tables and figures: Tables and figures (black-and-white figures and glossy photographs) should be enclosed on separate sheets, numbered consecutively and titled. They should be referred to in the text as Fig. 1, Fig. 2, ..., Table 1, Table 2, ... A list of table and figure captions should be provided on separate sheet(s) at the end of the manuscript. Colour figures will be accepted only if the colour is essential for the explanation.

Units and mathematical formulae: SI units and abbreviations are obligatory. Mathematical formulae should be typewritten and centred. The formulae referred to in the text are to be numbered consecutively in each Section, i.e. (1.1), (1.2), ... in Section 1, (2.1), (2.2), ... in Section 2, etc. The numbers should be placed in parentheses ( ) at the left margin. The formulae are to be referred to in the text as Eq. (1.1), Eq. (1.2), ..., Eq. (2.1), Eq. (2.2), ..., etc. The formulae not referred to in the text should not be numbered.

References: RReferences are to be listed at the end of the paper in the citing order and consecutively numbered. A reference to a published paper should be referred to in the text by the last name(s) of author(s) and the reference's number in brackets [ ]. Each item should contain full bibliographical data in the format illustrated by the following examples:
1. C. K. Choi, H. S. Hong, Finite strip analysis of multi-span box girder bridges by using non-periodic B-spline interpolation, Structural Engineering and Mechanics, 12, 3, 313-328, 2001
2. L. Fryba, Vibrations of solids and structures under moving load, Academia, Prague 1972
3. T. Y. Kam, F. M. Lai, Finite element of foam-filled laminated composite sandwich plates, Proc. 6. Int. Conf. on Computer Methods in Composite Materials, 453-462, Montreal 1998
In special cases, other formats related to codes, reports, dissertations, etc. will be accepted.
