General Information

The Dydaktyka Polonistyczna journal is published yearly by the University of Rzeszow. The papers submitted for publication should be written in Polish, accompanied by a summary in Polish, English, German, French, Russian or other and a summary in English (including the title).
Accepted for publication may be previously unpublished texts, such as papers, critical replies, reviews, translations of foreign language texts falling within the scope of the journal’s profile, as well as information notices and reports.

The articles are published under license  Creative Commos CC-BY NC ND after receiving positive reviews.

The authors do not bear any costs related to the editorial procedure and printing. Before publishing the article, they sign a contract with the publisher of the magazine.

According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Education and Science, publication ethics aimed at preventing ghostwriting and guest authorship have been introduced by the Editorial Board.

a) Concept definitions:
ghostwriting occurs when a significant contribution to the paper has been made by an unnamed co-author who does not reveal his/her contribution (who is not stated as a co-author of the paper, or whose contribution has not been referred to in the acknowledgements either);
guest authorship (honorary authorship) occurs when the actual contribution of an author has been minimal or non-existent, but he/she has been stated as a author/co-author nevertheless.

b) The procedure aimed at preventing serious malpractice at the Dydaktyka Polonistycznajournal: ghostwriting or guest authorship attest to academic unreliability; hence, all such cases detected will be denounced by the Editorial Board, whereas the institutions concerned (the author’s employers, academic societies, academic editor associations, etc.) will be informed of the fact;

In the case of co-authorship, the Editorial Board requires that the contributions of particular authors (i.e. the information on who are the authors of the concept, assumptions, methodology, protocol, etc., applied to the paper concerned, as well as the information on their affiliation) be revealed, with the main responsibility on the part of the author submitting the manuscript.

The Editorial Board should receive the information on the sources of finance for the paper, as well as the contribution of academic and research institutions, societies, and other entities.

The editors of Dydaktyka Polonistyczna will document all the occurrences of academic unreliability, in particular the cases of violation of the academic ethics.
