The following Latin abbreviations are used in The Monograph of the Jagiellonian University PhD Student Association:
ibidem (lit. “in the same place”), when citing the same entry as in the previous footnote
idem/eadem (lit. “the same”), when citing the text of the same author whose work had been cited in the previous footnote
op. cit. (lit. “work already cited”), when citing a text previously cited or a text which the article had previously made a reference to. In this case we can resort to two alternatives:
(3a) if throughout the article the author makes a reference to only one text of a given person, “op. cit.” should immediately follow his/her surname,
(3b) if, however, the author makes a reference to more than one work of a given person then a fragment of the work’s title should follow that person’s surname, and only then be followed by “op. cit.”
EXAMPLE 3a: M. Heidegger, op. cit.
EXAMPLE 3b: M. Heidegger, Bycie i czas, op. cit.
It is possible for the above-mentioned abbreviations to co-occur:
EXAMPLE: Idem, Podstawowe problemy fenomenologii, op. cit.
When citing a previously cited work with a longer title, shorten the title:
EXAMPLE: I. Kant, Prolegomena..., op. cit.
Articles and all necessary information should be sent by email to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Texts not formatted according to the guidelines outlined above (font, footnotes), or lacking the necessary information, will not be accepted.
Graphics (photographs, illustrations, charts) should be attached as separate files and sent in the best possible quality. The Author is responsible for obtaining permission for printing the illustrations. The Editorial Board reserves the right to publish a text without graphics.
Please do not format the text by inserting non-breaking spaces or non-breaking paragraphs. The final version of the article shall be prepared for printing by the editor and any shortcomings in formatting will not influence the evaluation of the received material.
Bibliographical entries should not contain names of publishing houses, the information provided in the entries should agree with the information found on title pages of the works cited. When quoting works in English, keep “ed.” and “trans.”, when quoting works in Polish change “ed.” to “red.” and “trans.” to “tłum.”. When quoting a fragment of a different author’s text, indicate the page numbers, on which the given fragment can be found.
Throughout the editing process we will remain in contact with the Author of the article. Any concerns not addressed here shall be discussed via email. The last stage of the process consists in autocorrection and authorization of the article.
