          ● Tables should have a concise, not excessively long heading.

          ● Tables can be put in the appropriate place in the text, at its end, or in separate files.


1. Prepared in MS Excel, MS Word, or Corel Draw formats

They should be submitted in the format in which they have been prepared. Figures prepared in Corel Draw should not be saved as *.tif or *.jpg.

2. Scanned figures

They should be saved in the *.tif or *.jpg format (if in *.jpg, then choosing the smallest compression level and the highest quality - the smaller the file, the worse its quality, which should be avoided) at a resolution of a minimum of 300 dpi and a width of 126 mm.

3. Figures prepared in other programs

They should be exported, preferably to such formats as *.wmf. *.emf or *.eps; if this is not possible, then to *.tif or *.jpg (if to *.jpg, then choosing the smallest compression level and the highest quality) at a resolution of a minimum of 300 dpi and a width of 126 mm.

● Files with figures are best named in accordance with their numbering in the text rather than in a descriptive way.

The parcel can be preceded by e-mail correspondence with attachments.



The principles of COPE are respected.
