How to prepare the text for submission?
- The basic reference example
J. Kowalski [N. Surname]: Historia Górnego Śląska [Title]. Warszawa [city of publication] 2008, p. 35.
- Names and surnames
In footnotes, do not use the full names of the authors; instead, provide the initial letter of the name followed by the full stop. If the author of the cited work uses two names, both of them should be written as initials, for instance: J.A. Kowalski. There should be no space between the two initials; this rule also applies to names written with the hyphen, for instance: H.-G. Gadamer. We suggest that all the surnames in references be written in small caps. In order to make small caps, you need to select the surname of the author and press shift + ctrl + k (in MS Word). Please do not put spaces between the letters of the surnames. Please do not use all caps in surnames.
