Due to the potential appearance of false publishers of Archives of Electrical Engineering, the Editors of AEE would like to draw your attention to the fact that the official journal websites are exclusively:
(a) the home page of the AEE journal,
(b) the electronic platform of de Gruyter online as well as
(c) the web page of the owner of the journal the Committee on Electrical Engineering Polish Academy of Sciences.

  • Manuscript submission:

  • All manuscripts should be submitted electronically on Editorial System.

    Submission of paper to the Archives of Electrical Engineering is understood to imply that the article is original, unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. All articles will be reviewed. Since 2013, Authors wishing to use the facility of colour printing should consult the editors. All contributions should be addressed to the Editor-in-Chief or the Editorial Office:

    Archives of Electrical Engineering

  • The reviewing process:

  • Each paper submitted for publication in Archives of Electrical Engineering is subjected to the following review procedure:
    a) the paper is reviewed by the editor in chief or guest editor for general suitability for publication in AEE
    b) if it is judged suitable two reviewers are selected and a double blind peer review process takes place
    c) based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editor then decides whether the paper should be accepted in its present form, revised or rejected
    d) the author(s) is(are) informed by e-mail on the results of the reviewing procedure.
    The papers are published on average within 3 months after acceptance.

  • Requirements for preparation of manuscripts:

  • The manuscripts submitted for publication should not exceed 30 000 characters (ca. 12 pages of a manuscript written on an A4 sheet in Times New Roman, 10pt font size, single line spacing and 3.8 cm margins). The manuscripts, written in UK English, should be typed using Template AEE according to the following instructions and should include: a title page with the title of a manuscript, a short title; abstract; key words, text; list of references. A DOI number as well as received and revised data will be completed by Editor. When you open Template.doc, select "Print Layout" from the "View" menu in the menu bar (View > Print Layout). Then type over sections of Template.doc or cut and paste from another document and then use markup styles (Home > Styles). For example, the style at this point in the document is "main text").
    All papers submitted for publication are assessed on the basis of the mutual anonymity rule as to the names of reviewers and authors. Authors' names and affiliations should not appear in the attached text/tables/figures.
    If English is not your first language, ask an English-speaking colleague to proofread your manuscript. The manuscripts that fail to meet basic standards of literacy are likely to be immediately declined or after the language assessment, sent to the authors for linguistic improvement.
    The manuscripts are published on average within 3 months after their acceptance.
    Do not change the font sizes or line spacing to squeeze more text into a limited number of pages. Leave some open space around your figures.

  • Text:

  • The pages must be numbered consecutively. Articles should be divided into numbered sections, and if necessary subsections, preferably: Introduction, Material, Methods, Results, Conclusion and References. Any special characters (e.g. Greek, script, etc.) should be named in the margin where the character first occurs in the text. Names of species are to be accentuated with wavy underlining (italics). Equations should be numbered serially (1), (2), ... on the right side of the page. Footnotes should be avoided, if required, they should be used only for brief notes which do not fit well into the text. Figures and tables have to be included into the text. If table is typed on a separate page its position in the text should be marked. Abbreviations should be explained when they first appear in the text.

  • Math:

  • Please use the Microsoft Equation 3.0 editor (comes with Microsoft Office 2007 and later versions) to build an equation in your paper.
    To insert an equation in Word, choose Insert, then Object. This will bring up a dropdown menu, where the Object option should be chosen again. Pressing it opens a popup window, where the Create New option has to be clicked. Scrolling down the window allows to find Microsoft Equation 3.0.
    Please note that the MathML editor as well as MathType editor is not recommended for typing equations.

  • Equations:

  • Equations should be typed within the text, centred, and should be numbered consecutively throughout the text. Their numbers should be typed in parentheses, flush right. Equations should be referred to in text, e.g. (1), except at the beginning of a sentence: "Equation (1) is ...". All symbols appearing in equations have to be defined in the text, before or just after the equation.
    If the symbols are written in Times New Roman use italic fonts. Symbols of vectors and matrices should be written in bold fonts. Do not italicize Greek fonts and mathematical symbols like e.g.: the derivative symbol d, max, min, etc. The indices of symbols that are indices themselves should be written in a clear manner.
    Note that the equation is centered using a center tab stop. Please keep the same font in the formulas and text.

  • Unit Symbols, Abbreviations:

  • Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used in the text, even after they have been defined in the abstract. Abbreviations such as IEEE, SI, MKS, CGS, sc, dc, and rms do not have to be defined. Do not use abbreviations in the title or heads unless they are unavoidable.
    Si units are recommended for use in formulas, drawings and tables., for example the SI unit for magnetic field strength H is A/m. Apply the center dot to separate compound units.
    Do not mix complete spellings and abbreviations of units: "Wb/m2" or "webers per square meter," not "webers/m2." Spell units when they appear in text: "...a few henries…", not "...a few H…".
    Use a zero before decimal points: "0.25," not ".25." Use "cm3," not "cc."
    Unit Symbols, SI Prefixes as well as Abbreviations should be writing in accordance with the IEEE standard

  • Tables, figures (illustrations) and captions:

  • The illustrations (line diagrams and photographs) should be suitable for direct reproduction. The lettering as well the details should have proportional dimensions to maintain their legibility after the usual reduction. All illustrations should be numbered consecutively (Fig. X). Tables are numbered with Arabic numerals.
    All figures, figure captions, and tables in the text must be inserted into the correct places.
    Figures, photos, tables or other parts of a manuscript that have previously appeared in another publication or are not the property of the authors must be properly acknowledged in the manuscript. Permission to republish these items must be obtained by the corresponding author from a person or institution holding the copyright, usually the publisher.
    Authors are requested to send figures (diagrams, line drawings and photographic images) in separate computer files. JPG, PNG or TIF are the recommended file formats. Photographs, colour and greyscale figures should be at least at a resolution of 400dpi. Linear, including tables should be at a minimum of 600dpi.
    All colour figures should be generated in the RGB or CMYK colour space, while greyscale images in the greyscale colour space.
    When preparing your figures/graphics etc., we suggest the use of the Arial 8 point font for axis numbers and Arial 9 point font for axis names. Figures/graphics etc. can be prepared in one of two proposed ways - see Template AEE.
    Tables are numbered with Arabic numerals. Use 9 point Times New Roman for the title of the table and 9 point Times New Roman for the filling of the table (9 in the case of symbols with subscripts).
    AEE journal allows an author to publish color figures in e-version at no charge, and automatically convert them to grayscale for print versions. Authors wishing to use the facility of color printing should consult the editors.

  • Conclusions:

  • A conclusion might elaborate on the importance of the work or suggest applications and extensions. Although a conclusion may review the main points of the manuscript, do not replicate the abstract as the conclusion.

  • References:

  • References in text must be numbered consecutively by Arabic numerals placed in square brackets. Please make sure that you use full names of journals i.e. Archives of Electrical Engineering. Please ensure that all references in the Reference list are cited in the text and vice versa.
    Please provide name(s) and initials of author(s), the title of the manuscript, editors (if any), the title of the journal or book, a volume number, the page range, and finally the year of publication in brackets.
    You can use the rules presented on the site: IEEE standard
