  • advertisements that may be covered on separate pages of the quarterly (prices are subject to individual negotiations).

Papers must be accompanied by the following submission letter (form available at journal’s website), signed by all Authors: “The undersigned Authors transfer the ownership of copyright to the Polish Journal of Sport and Tourism should their work be published in this journal. Authors state that the article is original, has not been submitted for publication in other journals and has not already been published except in abstract form, preliminary report or thesis. Authors state that they are responsible for the research that they have carried out and designed; that they have participated in drafting and revising the manuscript submitted, which they approve in its contents. Authors also state that the reported article (if it involves human experiments) has been approved by the appropriate ethical committee and was undertaken in compliance with The Helsinki Declaration.”

Authors are required to declare their individual contribution to the article (study design, funds collection, data collection, results analysis, statistical analysis, data interpretation, literature search, manuscript preparation) on special form sent to the Editorial Office. Author, who submits the paper, bears the main responsibility for given data. „Ghostwriting” and „guest authorship” are symptoms of scientific dishonesty, and all discovered cases will be exposed, including informing suitable entities.

Papers submitted for publication should be sent to the Editorial Office in duplicate typescripts in A4 format. They should be single-page typed in Times New Roman (12 points), with the following margins: 3 cm on the left, 2 cm on the right, 2 cm on the top and 2 cm on the bottom, with 1.5 line spacing, without justification nor formatting. Indentations should be made of 3 characters not using a tabulator. Subsequent pages should be numbered with a pencil. Authors are recommended to enclose an electronic form of the manuscript (CD-ROM disc) prepared in WORD XP-2007 text editor. The disc should be labeled with the name of the file containing the manuscript (acceptable file formats: *.doc). Manuscripts may also be submitted via electronic mail (a cover letter with attached manuscript) to the e-mail address provided at the end of Instruction to Authors.

Articles will be sent to two independent and anonymous referees from outside of the institution from which the paper was sent (“double-blind review process”). Depending on the reviewers’ opinion, the Editors will make a decision on their acceptance or rejection. The Editors’ decision is ultimate. The list of cooperate referees is published once a year, in the last issue. Evaluation sheet is available at Journal’s website.

Title page. The title page should contain: title of the paper, short title (maximum 40 characters), first and last names of authors with affiliation, first and last name of corresponding author with postal address, telephone, fax and e-mail.

Abstract (up to 250 characters) consisting of the following sections: justification and aim of the study, material and methods, results, conclusions as well as 3-6 key words, should be provided before the body text.

Body text should be sectioned into: Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgements (if necessary), and Literature. In articles of other types, the text should follow in a logical sequence and headings of its particular sections should reflect issues discussed therein.

Introduction – should be short and concise; it should introduce readers into research problems addressed in the study as well justify undertaking the research and specify its objective.

Material and methods – should describe the subject of the study (in the case of human subjects data should include their number, age, sex and any other typical characteristics) and methods applied in a sufficiently exhaustive way to enable readers to repeat the experiments or observations. For generally known methods only references should be given, whereas detailed descriptions are to be provided for new or substantially modified methods.

Results – should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and figures. Data collated in tables and figures should not be repeated in the text which should summarize the most important observations.

Discussion – should emphasize new or important aspects of experimental results and discuss their implications. Results of own studies are to be compared with findings described in the respective domestic and international references used by the Authors.

Conclusions – should be stated in points or descriptively and should be logically connected with objectives stated in the Introduction. Statements and conclusions not derived from own observations should be avoided.

Acknowledgements – should list persons or institutions that helped the Author(s) in preparing the manuscript or provided financial support or technical assistance.

Literature – should list only to those quoted in the text and connected directly with the topic of the study (not more than 25 references in original papers and not more than 50 references in review papers). They should be presented in the order, in which they are cited in the text. In quoting them in the text only their respective number from the list of Literature should be given in parentheses. References quoted in tables and figures are to be included in the list of Literature. Non-published works should be avoided. References should include up-to-day world literature. Manuals etc. may be quoted, but exceptionally. When there are six or less authors, list all of them; when there are seven or more, list the first six and add: et al. If article is not in English, authors should translate the title into English and enclose the language of translation in square brackets. Do not translate the title of the journal or the name of a publishing house. The authors’ names and the title of the article written in Cyrillic alphabet should be transcripted in Latin. Referring for articles in electronic form is admissible.
