Preliminary remarks

Texts for publishing are accepted on an ongoing basis and are published on a first-come, first-served basis.

The editorial team accepts original texts which have not been published before, from the field of literary studies, linguistics, cultural and translation studies, on Polish and Eastern Slavic cultural, literary and linguistic links with particular emphasis on Belarussian, Russian and Ukrainian literature.

The quarterly publishes articles, reviews, review descriptions and reports from academic conferences.

The text can be published in one of five sections: Literary Studies, Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Translation Studies, Descriptions, Reviews and Reports.

Having received the article, the secretary of a given issue of the journal will confirm its receipt, which is not equal to its acceptance for publishing.

The editorial team reserves the right to reject texts which do not meet general and technical requirements or the rules for writing footnotes.

The editorial team of “Acta Polono-Ruthenica” journal makes every effort to detect and disclose cases of unfair practices, such as: plagiarism, multiple publications, unauthorized citing, etc.

The editorial team considers ghostwriting (failure to mention a particular person’s significant participation in the article writing) and guest authorship (adding a person whose participation was insignificant as a co-author) as lack of academic integrity.

Authors of publications shall receive an electronic copy of the journal.

Authors shall not receive remuneration for the articles published in the journal.

General requirements

Texts of articles and reviews are accepted in Polish, Belarussian, Russian and Ukrainian.

Only the texts which fit the journal’s profile and have been prepared according to the requirements of UWM Publishing House (see: Rules for preparing materials for print published on the journal’s website in the “For Authors” tab) can be qualified for reviewing.

Submitting a text for reviewing is considered by the editorial team as equal to the Author’s declaring that:

a) the text has not been submitted to another journal (negative result of the review procedure releases the author from this agreement) and had not been previously published;

b) the text is the author’s original work;

d) the author is not breaching copyrights to research and illustrations made by third parties;

e) no information concerning persons or institutions which have contributed to the research results presented in the text has been omitted;
