Notes to Authors
The following types of articles will be published:

  • Articles describing original research;
  • Short Communication, also reporting original work, but shorter and more concise as regards the subject matter;
  • Reviews, which should be a critical evaluation of the current stage of research on a particular facet of environmental problems;
  • Invited, accelerated articles, stimulating the up-to-data research;

Every article will be reviewed. The Editorial Board of the "Polish Journal of Environmental Studies", assisted by referees, will screen the submitted articles. Papers accepted for publication must not have been published elsewhere.
Authors of papers concerning the experiments with animals are requested to include the opinion and approval of Local Commitee of Ethics.
