  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
  • The authors are requested to download, sign, scan and upload the author's copyright form.  In the case when the paper is not accepted for publication in Mechanics and Control this copyright will be terminated and the authors will be free to submit the manuscript for publication elsewhere.
  • Two files need to be submitted: a Word document and a Pdf file. Upload the Pdf file as a Submission file (Step 2) of the sumission procedure. The Word document should be uploded as one of Supplementary files (Step 4) of the procedure.

  • It is the responsibility of the authors that the paper is written in clear and correct English.
  • In order to complete the submission procedure the authors are requested to fill the author's copyright form. In the case when the paper is not accepted for publication in Mechanics and Control this copyright will be terminated and the authors will be free to submit the manuscript for publication elsewhere.


The papers are published in Mechanics and Control free of charge. According to the policy of the AGH University of Science and Technology Press, the issues of the journal are available for the general public online. The corresponding author of a published paper will be sent one complementary hard coppy of the journal issue that contains his or her contribution.


It is the responsibility of the authors to prepare their manuscript according to the following instructions:

  • Keywords: please provide 4 to 6 keywords (both in Polish and English).
  • Scientific style: please use the standard mathematical notation for formulae, symbols (e.g. Italic for single letters that denote mathematical constants, variables, and unknown quantities; regular (not italic) bold face to denote vectors).
  • The running text of body of the paper should be followed by figures and tables; their exact placement should be indicated in the text or on the left-hand margin.
  • Figures should be drawn clearly in black, printed or photocopied. Dense distribution of details in figures and tables should be avoided. Figures, tables and photographs should be numbered consecutively according to their reference in text.
