Further detailed editorial recommendations:

6. If you include a quotation, always provide page number from which the quote was taken. Short quotations should be written in a regular font and enclosed in quotation marks. For internal quotation marks use the „«…»” signs. Longer quotations should be written in a smaller font (10 pt), with single spacing, and set off in a block with indentation to the left, without quotation marks.
7. Notes should always end with a full stop and be placed at the bottom of a page (10 pt font, Times New Roman).

Notes should be created according to the following template:
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska. Warszawa 2008, s. 35.
If you quote a passage (e.g. one of the papers from the book of a given author):
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska. W: Idem: Górny Śląsk – wczoraj i dziś. Warszawa 2008, s. 35–48.

If a publication is a part of joint publication:
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska. W: Górny Śląsk – wczoraj i dziś. Red. J. Nowak, B. Malinowska-Kern. Warszawa 2008, s. 35–48.

If a book was translated:
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska. Przeł. K. Adamska. Warszawa 2008.

If a book was quoted in a previous note:
Ibidem, s. 35.

In case when a book was quoted before (within one chapter), you have to provide a description in abbreviated form (not op. cit.). When shortening a bibliographic description, make sure that it is written in the same format. The descriptions of joint publication should also be shortened (even if you refer to different articles from one volume):
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska…, s. 45.
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska. W: Górny Śląsk – wczoraj i dziś…, s. 35–48.
M. Malinowska: Wpływy czeskie w sztuce Górnego Śląska. W: Górny Śląsk – wczoraj i dziś…, s. 56–67.

If an article comes from a journal:
J. Kowalski: Historia Górnego Śląska. „Górny Śląsk – wczoraj i dziś” 2008, nr 4 (120), s. 35–45.

How to prepare footnotes:

Size and numbers
- footnotes should be placed on the same page as reference marks (not at the end of the article, chapter or work);
- each footnote requires a new paragraph.

Italics and quotation marks
- the titles of quoted books, chapters, and articles should be written in italics;
- the titles of journals and periodicals should be placed in quotation marks.

Hyphen and dash
-the footprint must include the first initial of author(s), and surname(s). In case of double surnames, put a hyphen without space between them (RIGHT: A. Kowalska-Nowak, WRONG: A. Kowalska – Nowak, A. Kowalska - Nowak, A. Kowalska–Nowak);
- do not use a hyphen between numbers of volumes, parts, and notebooks (25-35). Instead, use dashes (25–35) without spaces on either side (RIGHT: 25–35; WRONG: 25-35, 25 – 35, 25 - 35).

Full stops, colons, commas
- when referring to a chapter/article (fragment of a larger text), the title and a full stop should be followed by W (capital letter, without brackets) and colon;
- colon should be placed after author’s surname and phrase „Idem/Eadem” , in case of referring to a larger text – after „W”;
- comma separates elements of description after year of publication;
- if you provide publisher, it should be placed in each footnote after place of publication and separated from place and year of publication by commas;
- notes end with full stop.

Capital and small letters
-use the following abbreviations (written with a capital letter) V. (volume); P. (part); Ed. (editor); Trans. (translated); Ed. (edited)
-abbreviations written with a small letter: no (number); n. (notebook); p. (page);
Arabic numerals, Latin words
- volume, parts, notebooks – use Arabic numerals (regardless of the original);
- use Latin words: Ibidem, Idem/Eadem (depends on gender).

Photographs and illustrations
If you send texts in an electronic form, all photographs or other illustrations should be attached as separate files (as .jpg, .gif, .bmp, .png or .tif) and the names of all files should contain: Photo. 1, Photo 2, Il. 1, Il. 2 etc. Please do not place photos and other illustrations with captions in the text. Electronic correspondence should include list of pictures captions, prepared in Word according to the following template:
Photo 1. Obozowisko Pasztunów, zachodni Pakistan (fot. J. Stolarski, lipiec 2005).
