Original articles within the scope of the Journal should be submitted through Internet:
Paper Manager as pdf file. Papers can be submitted only in English.
The file with the paper should contain:
Title, Authors - give names, affiliations and addresses of the author and all co-authors,
Abstract - it must state the main objectives, scope and findings of the work within approximately 300 words,
Keywords - few keywords are required for use in indexing,
Main text with figures,
Acknowledgements (if necessary),
Appendix (if necessary, not advised),
Title and abstract (300-500) words in Polish - only Polish Authors should submit abstract
in Polish. The publisher will do translation of the title and the abstract into
Polish for other Authors)
All contributions will be evaluated by two reviewers selected by the Editorial Board and the
Authors will be notified about the decision.
When the paper is accepted, MS Word source file with the text as well as figures in separate files
have to be sent. It can be done either through internet or, if the file is too big, on the CD
together with the printed version.
Text of the paper has to be written on the A4 format with 25 mm margins on all sides, using
Times-Roman 12 pts font. Add page numbering at the bottom-centre of the page.
Equations should be justified to the left margin and equation number (in parenthesis) to
the right margin:
Figures, photograph and tables have to be included in the text. They should be referred to
in the text by the whole word in lower case letters, for example function f(x) is presented in
figure 1 and the results of calculations are given in table 1. Use the SI-system for units and
all quantitative data. When the paper is accepted for publication, all figures have to be additionally
supplied as *.bmp or *.jpg files. If requested, figures or photographs can be printed in colour
for an additional cost of 40 euro per page paid by the authors
List of references is located at the end of the text, in the alphabetic order.
Reference to the list has to be made by the name of the authors and the year of publication, for example:
In the case of one author
developed by Huber (1904).
energetic criterion was applied (Huber, 1904).
In the case of two authors:
on the basis of research by Thompson and Hamzeh (1992).
work of ... was accounted for (Thompson & Hamzeh, 1992)
In the case of more than two authors:
Bai et al. (1993) researched the effect of ...
Parameters for the steel are also available Bai et at., (1993).
In the case of referring to more than one publication:
(Thompson & Hamzeh, 1992; Chenot & Bellet, 1992)
If one author of a group of authors published more than one cited paper in the same year, add letters a, b, . . after the year.
Examples of formatting references for books, journal publications, conference proceedings and PhD theses
are presented below. Name of the publisher as well as names of all editors have to be added for edited
books or conference proceedings. 1 cm indentation should be used. Examples:

For publication in the journal Computer Methods in Materials Science an article may not have been
published previously anywhere else. Copyright of material in the article is the responsibility
of the author. Extensive quotations and the sources of illustrations must be acknowledged.
After the acceptance of the manuscript by the Editorial Committee, the author assigns the rights
of publication and translation of his work to Akapit Scientific Publisher for a period of one
year after the date of its publication. During this period, publication elsewhere requires the prior
agreement of Akapit. Such rights as further reproduction for commercial purposes and the granting
of licenses for reprints, remain exclusively with Akapit.
Each author has to create his own account (Web System -> Register), which will allow
to pass each step of the paper submission. Author will have to fill the 'Registration form', where
the obligatory fields are marked with asterisk. Please check carefully all your data, especially
email - it will be your unique identifier and login in the Web System. After submission of correctly
filled registration form, the email containing password will be generated automatically and sent
to the Author immediately.
The paper has to be submitted through the Web System.
Therefore, Author has to login to the system. After successful login, Author is redirected to
the page containing list of his papers. In every moment Author has the possibility to add new paper.
The procedure of paper adding, submitting and reviewing is divided into following steps:
Paper Upload - Author has to choose the accepted position from the paper list - he will be redirected to
form allowing to upload the full version of the paper. The paper has to be uploaded as PDF file, in this
form it is sent to Editor and paper receives new status - 'Paper Submitted'. Editor assigns the paper to
two Reviewers and status is changed one more time - 'Paper in Review'.
After Review Actions - Reviewers assess the paper and send their notes to Editor, who assigns the
final note and gives additional explanation. The status is changed to 'Paper Accepted' ('Paper Rejected')
if the paper was accepted (rejected) or 'Paper Accepted Conditionally'.
The latter means that Authors should consider the suggestions written by Reviewers and
explanations of Editor. Then Author can submit the paper one more time to review. If the paper is finally accepted,
then Author is able to upload DOC version of the paper and related images in form of JPG or TIFF files.
