Because of the formatting errors or due to consistency reasons, the manuscript will not be accepted, both for evaluation and possible further editorial process.

Submission of a manuscript to Materials Science-Poland implies that it is not being considered for the publication elsewhere, and the authors have a necessary authorization to publish the material contained in the paper.

The review process for submitted papers is blind peer review.

1. Submission of Manuscripts

New manuscripts must be submitted to “Materials Science-Poland” via the Editorial Manager, available on the following website:

All the following information should be submitted separately:

  • The title of the manuscript;
  • The name(s) of the author(s);
  • A concise and informative title;
  • The affiliation(s) of the author(s), i.e. institution, (department), city, (state), country;

  • Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 12-point Times Roman) for text.
  • Use bold for chapters.
  • Use italics for emphasis.
  • Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages.
  • Do not use field functions.
  • Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.
  • Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.
  • Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.
  • Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions).

The required formats for the graphic files are:

– Figures must be delivered as tif (or – possibly – jpg) files. The resolution must be exactly 300 ppi (300 dpi when printed out) and at least 10-point font size should be used for descriptions.
– Photographs will be accepted in TIFF (or – possibly – jpg) formats. Their resolution must be exactly 300 ppi (300 dpi when printed out).

All figures and pictures should be numbered with Arabic numerals, have descriptive captions, and be mentioned in the text. Each figure (as well as other graphic elements) should be placed in the body of the paper as appropriate. All figures and pictures submitted, including chemical schemes, must be of a high standard and resolution for direct reproduction. The figures are supposed to be computer-generated prints of high quality.


Please, submit tables as editable text and not as images. The smallest font is 10-point size.
Tables can be placed next to the relevant text in the article. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Please avoid using vertical rules and shading in table cells.


In the manuscript, the references should be numbered consecutively by Arabic numerals in [square brackets] (e.g. [1]; [2]; [3]; [4]; etc.). Each one of the cited references must be discussed individually and demonstrate their significance to your work. Please, describe in one or two sentences, what they claim, what evidence they provide to support their claim.
The list of references MUST have the following format:

Reference list
The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. If the cited work has DOI number, it must be specified on the Reference list. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.
The entries in the list should be numbered consecutively.
