Instructions for the authors
Geology, Geophysics and Environment publishes original papers from the Earth and Environment Sciences fields.
Articles and notes are accepted only in English language. All submitted articles are peer reviewed by the two independent reviewers.
Submission to the GGE proceeds online. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting. Please submit your article via https://journals.agh.edu.pl/geol/user/register.
Remember to scan and attach author statement signed by all authors of article during submission process.
The length of the manuscripts should not be less than 5 pages and should not exceed 25 pages (Times New Roman CE fond type, 12 points, 1.5-spaced format, 2.5 cm margins, left justification, without hyphenation); however, in justified cases these length restrictions may be waived. The texts containing scientific discussion and/or critical position regarding previously published articles in the Journal will be accepted only if they contain new research results and the author's original interpretations. The author of the original text is entitled to the final answer and must follow the same principles as the opponent.
The text should be arranged in the following order:
– Title page which should contain: the title of the paper, abstract and keywords.
Abstract: brief summary (200-250 words long) ought to state the scope of the paper, methods, and key results;
Keywords should not contain more than 7 terms and they ought to be arranged in a hierarchy from general to specific;
– Body text which should be presented in the following order: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgments and References.
– Figures and/or tables captions
All tables and figures should be prepared on as separate files which ought to be uploaded as supplementary files during submission process. Their width should not exceed 170 mm and high 226 mm.
Tables (Tab.) - should supplement, not duplicate, text and figures.
Figures (Fig. ) should be supplied as high resolution (at least 600 d.p.i.) electronic graphics files and saved as jpg or TIF. Particular attention should be given to maintain the appropriate size of letters in figures which may be reduced during zooming. Hatching should be labeled with the numbers along with their legend. Individual figures in the photomontage should be captioned using capital letters (e.g. Fig. 5B).
References should be alphabetized, started on a new page and include only cited texts. Titles of references written in Latin alphabet should be provided in their original form. References written in the Cyrillic alphabet should be transliterated to Latin alphabet according to international standards (ISO recommendation). Remember to copy and paste all the references to right place during submission process.
Several works of one author that were published in the same year should be distinguished by putting small letters after the publication year e.g. Nowak (1976a). References within the text should be cited in the following format: one author: Kowalski (1985) or (Kowalski 1985), two authors: Kowalski & Nowak (1997) or (Kowalski & Nowak 1997), more than two authors: Kowalski et al. (1996) or (Kowalski et al. 1996). When citing several works at once, maintain their chronological order.
