The following papers are published by CTO:
We also publish texts on psychology, pedagogy and sociology, especially if their subject matter lies at the intersection of these sciences with theology.
The CTO journal accepts texts written in Polish or in one of the congress languages. However, if the language of the text is other than Polish, the author is obliged to consult the text’s language accuracy with a professional translator or a native speaker prior to submitting it to the journal’s editorial team.
No fees are collected for the publication of the paper. Also, the editorial team does not pay any remuneration for publishing the text. The journal’s purpose is not to earn profit but spread knowledge and stimulate the scientific discourse.
The editorial team notifies the authors of its decision promptly upon the completion of the reviewing process which maximum time do not exceed two months.
The admission of texts is conducted on a continuous basis and the editorial teams always strives to publish them in the forthcoming CTO journal’s issue. If the text is submitted by the end of June of a given year, it will be published in this year's issue after passing the publishing procedure. If the text is submitted later than in June, publication in the issue of the next calendar year should be expected. This is not, however, a fixed rule. We kindly invite authors to directly contact the editorial team as every attempt is made to approach each author in an individual way.
The CTO editorial team accepts electronically sent texts only (texts submitted in a paper form will neither be reviewed nor returned to authors). The text file (containing attachments necessary to integrate the article: images, non-standard fonts, etc.) in a format enabling to open in Word shall be submitted by means of a form available at the journal’s website. Particular attention should be paid to ensure that both the content of the article and the file being uploaded are devoid of any signs indicating their authorship (your personal data should also be deleted in the file properties).
Author's details of the submitted text should be sent in a separate file, in compliance with the detailed guidelines (available here). In case of any technical problems with reading the file, the editors shall request the author to re-send the materials or send the article in another format's file (e.g. LaTex).
Once the article is approved for publication, the working text (submitted by the author) is linguistically revised and adjusted. Next, the editorial team returns the text to the author for acceptance. The author is also provided with the set of documents (agreements, licenses, etc.) to get acquainted with, sign and return together with the revised version of the article.
When the journal’s issue is edited, it is placed at the e-platform of the Szczecin University Press and issued in a paper form. Authors are provided with one paper copy of the journal’s issue containing their article.
