Author Guidelines

Since the Editorial Board does not charge for the publication of articles, we require authors to strictly follow the guidelines given below. Please make an effort to prepare the manuscript to be readable, and we also ask you to prepare a cover letter, which is essential. Articles that do not meet the formal requirements may be rejected at the initial stage and will not be sent for the review.

Please, let us respect each other's time and work.

  • Manuscripts intended for publication in Archives of Acoustics should be submitted in pdf format by an on-line procedure.
  • Manuscript should be original and should not be submitted either previously or simultaneously elsewhere, neither in whole, nor in part.
  • Submitted papers must be written in good English and proofread by a native speaker.
  • Basically, the papers should not exceed 40 000 typographic signs (about 20 typewritten pages).
  • A brief abstract must be included. The keywords and subject classification for the article is required.
  • Postal addresses, affiliations and email addresses for each author are required. At submission stage, all metadata concerning authors should be provided (including affiliation and email). Both in the metadata on the journal's website as in the headline of your article, provide the metadata in accordance with what you provided in the ORCID database.
  • Detailed information regarding the preparation of manuscripts is provided below (Article Requirements).
  • All articles in Archives of Acoustics are published on Creative Common licence CC BY-SA 4.0:

    The authors agree to the terms of this Copyright Notice, which will apply to this submission if and when it is published by this journal.
  • The submitted manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter containing the following information:
    • why the paper is submitted to ARCHIVES OF ACOUSTICS,
    • suggestion on the field of acoustics related to the topic of the submitted paper,
    • the statement that the manuscript is original, the submission has not been previously published, nor was sent to another journal for consideration,
    • 3–5 names of suggested reviewers together with their affiliations, full postal and e-mail addresses; at least 3 suggested reviewers should be affiliated with other scientific institutions than the affiliations of the authors,
    • author’s suggestion to classification of the paper as the research paper, review paper or technical note.

The aforementioned cover letter, with all the above-mentioned information, is strictly required.

Each manuscript is initially evaluated by the Editor and then allocated to an Associate Editor according to specific subject area. Upon receiving the Associate Editor’s list of potential reviewers, the Editorial Office forwards it to reviewers. The Editor and the Associate Editors make the final recommendation. Their opinions are crucial for the Editorial Committee to decide whether the paper can be accepted for publication or not.

Article Requirements

  1. At submission time only a PDF file is required. After acceptance, authors must submit all source material (see especially information about Figures). Authors can use their preferred manuscript-preparation software, including for example Microsoft Word or any variant of TeX. The journal itself is produced in LaTeX, so accepted articles prepared using other software will be converted to LaTeX at production time.
  2. Text should be submitted with double-lined spacing and preferably in a 12 point font size. The text should be in single-column format.
  3. The title of the paper should be as short as possible.
  4. Full authors’ names and surnames should be given – ORCID numbers are appreciated.
  5. The full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name should be provided. Affiliations should contain the full postal address, as well as an e-mail address of one author designated as corresponding author.
  6. The text should be preceded by a concise abstract (less than 200 words). Abstract should contain a brief presentation of the aim, methods, results and conclusions concerning presented research.
  7. Keywords should be given. It is also desirable to include a list of notations used in the paper.
  8. The formulae to be numbered are those referred to in the paper, as well as the final formulae. The formula number should be written on the right-hand side of the formula in round brackets.
  9. All notations should be written very distinctly. Special care must be taken to write small and capital letters as precisely as possible (this applies mainly to the letters c and C, s and S, and others whose shapes of the lowercase and uppercase letters differ slightly).
  10. Vectors should be denoted by boldfaced type.
  11. Trigonometric functions are denoted by sin, cos, tan and cot, inverse trigonometric functions – by arcsin, arccos, arctan and arccot; hyperbolic functions are denoted by sinh, cosh, tanh and coth. All functions must not be written in Italics.
  12. Acknowledgments should be included in a section after the main text, before the references.
  13. References in the text (author(s) and year of publication) are to be cited between parentheses. Examples: (Bogey, Bailly, 2002) or (Lodato et al., 2008), or (Motheau et al., 2017; Huet, 2015).
    All references in the bibliography should be cited in the text and arranged in alphabetical order by authors' last name. Number them from 1 to n.

Items appearing in the reference list should be complete, including surname and the initials of the first name of the author, the full title of the paper/book in English followed by the information on the original paper/book language. In case of a book, the publisher's name, the place and year of publication should be given. In case of a periodical, the full title of the periodical, consecutive volume number, current issue number, pages, and year of publication should be given; the annual volume number must be semi-bold so as to distinguish it from the current issue number. Please also provide the doi number for each item in the reference list to which the doi number has been assigned.

For more information on references see the attached file – Instructions for citation and bibliographic references.

Photographs must be high-quality – with resolution no lower than 300 dpi.

In the case of diagrams and graphs, the use of square brackets is required for unit descriptions in axis. The descriptions of the axes must be written in Times New Roman font (no boldfaced type) and its size adjusted proportionally. Mathematical symbols in the figures should be in italic if correspond to such symbols used in the text.

For diagrams and graphs vector EPS or vector PDF files are the most useful (EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript). Most drawing and graphing packages (e.g. Mathematica, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, MATLAB) allow the user to save files in one of these formats. Make sure that what you're saving is vector graphics and not a bitmap. Please also include the original data for any plots. This is particularly important if you are unable to save Excel-generated plots in vector format. Saving them as bitmaps is not useful; please send the Excel (.xls) spreadsheets instead.

Each figure should be saved in separate file, captioned and numbered.

Pack all figure files into a single archive (zip, tar, rar or other format) and then upload on the magazine web site.

After acceptance for publication

After acceptance, Authors will need to submit Word or LaTeX source files of the final version of articles as well as original source files of Figures (drawings/diagrams/graphs or photographs).

Files with figures should be prepared as follows:

  • In the case of diagrams and graphs, the use of square brackets is required for unit descriptions in axis. The descriptions of the axes should be written in Times New Roman font (no boldfaced type) and its size adjusted proportionally. Mathematical symbols in the figures should be in italic if correspond to such symbols used in the text.
  • For diagrams and graphs vector EPS or vector PDF files are the most useful (EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript). Most drawing and graphing packages (e.g. Mathematica, Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, MATLAB) allow the user to save files in one of these formats.

This is particularly important if you are unable to save Excel-generated plots in vector format. Saving them as bitmaps is not useful; please send the Excel (.xls) spreadsheets instead.
  • Photographs must be high-quality – with resolution no lower than 300 dpi.
  • Each figure should be saved in separate file and properly named.
  • Pack all figure files and text file into a single archive (zip, tar, rar or other format) and then upload on the magazine web site.
