    The journal publishes the following types of papers:

    • original research papers (maximum 12 standard pages of typescript, including tables, figures, references and abstract),
    • review papers commissioned by the Editor (maximum 20 standard pages of typescript, including documentation),
    • short communications (maximum 3 standard pages of typescript plus one table or figure and up to 5 references),

    • news (information on conferences, abstracts of Ph.D. thesis and Post-Doc. thesis, book reviews, biographical notes),
    • advertisements that may be printed on separate pages of the periodical (prices are subject to individual negotiations).

    Papers must be accompanied by the following submission letter (scan) (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 periodicals 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 an appropriate ethical committee and was undertaken in compliance with The Helsinki Declaration”. The journal does not have article processing charges (APCs) nor article submission charges.

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

    Authors are also required to fill in De Gruyter Open Access License. The form should be sent to the Editorial Office (scan) (“License to publish” is available at journal’s website).

    Papers submitted for publication should be sent to the Editorial Office as a file prepared in text editor (acceptable file formats: *.doc or *.docx). They should be 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. Manuscripts should be submitted via e-mail address: pjst@awf-bp.edu.pl (a cover letter with an attached manuscript).

    Articles compliant with journal’s profile and formal requirements will be sent by Section Editor 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 Editor-in-Chief will make a decision on their acceptance or rejection. Rejection occurs when there is at least one negative review. Editorial decision is ultimate. The list of referees is published in the last issue of the volume. Evaluation sheet is available at journal’s website.

    Title page should contain the title of the paper, first and last names of authors with affiliation as well as first and last names of the corresponding author with postal address, telephone, fax and e-mail.

    Abstract (up to 250 characters) consisting of the following sections: Introduction (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 as 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 be restricted only to works quoted in the text and connected directly with the topic of the study. 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 may be quoted, but only 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 an 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 to articles published in electronic form is admissible.
