Additional information

  • In case of doubt about the rights to use content/illustration material, the editors will ask the author to confirm the author/copyright holder in writing. Each author is obliged to ensure that the proposed content/material can be published. The editorial office is not responsible for violations by authors of texts, although it ensures that authors act within socially and legally accepted ethical standards.
  • The editorial staff does not accept drastic, unethical and offensive content, including illustrative material. However, the specific nature of the field in which we operate sometimes requires the presentation of photographs of human and animal remains. We ask authors to select figures appropriate for a public audience.
  • We ask authors to pay attention to the form of the text, adapted to publication on the Internet. Specialist vocabulary should be adequately explained, content presented clearly, text composition clear, sentences short. The article must contain key words and phrases, both in the title and in the body.
