should be sent by email to the Editorial Office: or

Manuscripts should be submitted in the MS Word format as a standard document (.doc).

The Editor assumes, that an author submitting a paper for publication has been authorised to do that. It is understood that the paper submitted to be original and unpublished work, and is not being considered for publication by another journal. After printing, the copyright of the paper is transferred to Society for Ecological Chemistry and Engineering (Towarzystwo Chemii i Inżynierii Ekologicznej).

"Ghostwriting" and "guest authorship" are a sign of scientific misconduct. To counteract them, please provide information, for the Editor, on the percentage contribution of individual Authors in the creation of publications (including the information, who is the author of concepts, principles, methods, etc.) - the form to fill in, could be found on the site:

Editorial Board believes that the main responsibility for those statements bears the Corresponding Author.

Editors had to expose any detected case of ghostwriting, guest authorship as well as plagiarism to the appropriate subjects.

In preparation of the manuscript please follow the general outline of papers published in the most recent issues of CDEM, a printed sample copy can be sent, if requested. Papers submitted are supposed to be written in English language and should include the title, an abstract and keywords, if possible also in Polish language. If not then the Polish title, abstract and keywords will be provided by the Editorial Office. The manuscript should contain also text, figures, tables and reference list.

Generally, a standard scientific paper is divided into:

  • Introduction: you present the subject of your paper clearly, indicate the scope of the subject, present state of knowledge on the paper subject and the goals of your paper;
  • Main text (usually divided into: Experimental - you describe methods used; Results and Discussion);
  • Conclusions: you summarize your paper;
  • References.

The first pageshould include the author’s (authors’) given name(s) without titles or scientific degrees like Prof., Ph.D., etc., their affiliations, phone and fax numbers and their email addresses however, with the corresponding author marked by an asterisk.

It is urged to follow the units recommended by the Systéme Internationale d'Unites (SI). Graph axis labels and table captions must include the quantity units.

Symbols recommended by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (Pure Appl Chem. 1979;51:1-41) are to be followed. Graphics (drawings, plots) should also be supplied in the form of digital vector-type files, eg CorelDraw, Excel, Inkscape or at least in a bitmap format (TIF, JPG). Tables should be numbered. They should have brief titles and column headings. The equations should be numbered in round brackets.

Authors should provide complete, correct and properly structured references. If the article/book has DOI number, the author should include it in the references. DOIs are very easy to find. Most publishers, if they have them, place them at the top of the article front page. Please keep in mind that the DOI number will automatically makes the active link.

Please remember that every sign in the references counts.

All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of References.

Journal titles should follow the Chem. Abstr. Service recommended abbreviations.

Each publication is evaluated by at least two independent Reviewers from outside of the unit.

As a rule double-blind review process is used (the Author(s) and Reviewers do not know their identities). In any case Editor must be sure that no conflict of interest (direct personal relationships, professional relationships, or direct scientific cooperation in the past two years) occurs between the Reviewer and the Author.

Reviewer has to fill in the Reviewers report. On its end must be an explicit request to the approval of the article for publication or its rejection.

Receipt of a paper submitted for publication will be acknowledged by email. If no acknowledgement has been received, please check it with the Editorial Office by email, fax, letter or phone.
