Instructions for Authors

Manuscripts should be submitted to the Editor, Prof. R. Izbicki, Studia Geotechnica et Mechanica, Technical University of Wrocław, Wybrzeże Wyspiańskiego 27, 50-370 Wrocław, Poland. They can also be submitted to the Editorial Board.

Only original papers will be accepted and copyright in published papers will be vested in the publisher.

The languages of the journal are English, French or Russian.

25 reprints of each paper will be provided free of charge. Additional copies in multiplies of a hundred may be purchased on a reprint order from which will be sent to authors on request.

Manuscripts should be typed double spaced with wide margins on left side of the sheet and submitted in triplicate. Illustrations should be submitted with the manuscript on the separate sheets. No maximum length of contribution is prescribed: authors should write concisely.

The title should be brief, typed on a separate sheet and the author’s name should be typed in the line below the title; the affiliation and address should follow in the next line. In the case of co-authors, affiliations and addresses should be clearly indicated. Correspondence will be sent to the first named author, unless otherwise specified.

The body of manuscript should be preceded to the author’s own summary (maximum length 200 words) in the same language as the paper. Each paper that is published will be preceded by a summary in English, Polish and Russian. The necessary translation is an editorial responsibility.

Mathematical symbols may be either hand-written or typewritten. Greek letters and unusual symbols should be identified separately in the margin. Distinction should be made between capital and lower case letter, between the letter O and zero, between the letter l and number one and between k and kappa.

Computer programs should be given on an original print-out plain paper and will be reproduced photographically to avoid errors.

Photographs are to be restricted in number to the minimum necessary. They should accompany the manuscript and should not be attached manuscript pages. Photographs should be enlarged sufficiently to permit clear reproduction after reduction. If words or numbers are to appear in a photograph, two prints should be sent, the lettering being clearly indicated on one print only.

Original line drawings should be submitted and should include all relevant details. Drawings should be about twice the final size and it desirable the lettering should be in pensil. If not, the lettering must be clear and sufficiently large to permit the necessary reduction of size in block-making.

Figure legends should be typed on a separate sheet and placed at the end of manuscript. The amount of lettering on a drawing should  be minimised as far as possible transferring it into legend.

It is author’s responsibility to obtain written permission to quote material that has appeared in another publication.

Tables should be numbered consecutively and titled. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Tables should not repeat the data, which are available elsewhere in the paper, e. g., in a diagram.

References to published literature should be quoted in the text by numbers in square brackets and grouped together the end of the paper in alphabetic order, e.g.:                                                 

1. EIMER C., Plasticity of polycrystal, Archives of   Mechanics, Vol. 29 (1977), No. 5,   pp. 687-704.      
2. NOWACKI W., Teoria sprężystości, PWN, Warszawa 1970.

Authors are requested to identify symbols in the manuscript (including matrices and vectors). A list of symbols should be given at the beginning of a paper.

A section of Letters to the Editor (each limited to 500 words) will provide a forum for discussion of recent problem.

Authors are encouraged to use the SI- system of units.

No manuscript or figures will be returned following publication unless a request for return is made when the manuscript is originally submitted.
