Publishing Policy and General Information

Submitted works should use the standard Times New Roman font with a size of 12 points. The works should contain up-to-date information, with a particular emphasis on the practical aspect of the presented topic. The use of graphic forms such as tables, figures, charts, and diagrams is encouraged. Short and relevant excerpts of the text should be highlighted for placement in the margin (journal layout template). Only international drug names in their Polish equivalents should be used in the text. If illustrations or other previously published materials are included, permission from the copyright owner is necessary.

The bibliography should include a list of all cited references in the order of their appearance in the work. The preferred style by the Editorial Board is Vancouver.

The bibliography should be limited to the most important references (maximum 25). References in the text should be placed in square brackets.
