"Przegląd Elektrotechniczny" exists since 1919 and it is one of the oldest Polish scientific journals. It is dedicated to electrical engineering and it is edited by SEP (Society of Polish Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
Przeglad Elektrotechniczny is published monthly in average 80 pages per issue. We publish the papers in Polish or English. The Scientific Level of our Journal is controlled by 30-person Program Editorial Board.
Name of the journal.
Official name of our journal is Przeglad Elektrotechniczny . We sometimes use name Przeglad Elektrotechniczny (Electrical Review) but note that the second part is only translation of official name (more correct should be Review on Electrical Engineering). Therefore please do not use only English part of our name because we are registeres in ISI as Przeglad Elektrotechniczny and other names are not indicated in calculation of Impact Factor (of the journal and authors as well)
Support of printing costs.
Editor does not require fee or charges for the paper. But our journal is not supported by goverment or other organization. Only incomes from subscription or sale enable to publish our journal. Unfortunately sale incomes can cover cost of publishing only about 10 papers monthly. To publish more papers we have to demand from the authors the declaration that they cover cost of printing. We established that these cost are as follows: 50 Euro for page b/w and 80 Euro for page in colour. In return for payment all papers are available in Open Access mode.
Preparation and submission of the papers
Przeglad Elektrotechniczny publishes original scientific papers, review papers, book reviews and reports from conferences linked to various aspects of electrical engineering."Original" means work, which was not published before – as a whole or as a substantial part – in other publications, including authors’ publications. If the published work is a part of a doctoral thesis or similar, the Editor should be informed about such a connection. All published papers are peer reviewed.
FAQ - Timing of submission procedure
The time period between submission and publication depends on three factors: a) looking for reviewer and receiving the review, b) waing for support of printing costs, c) waiting in the queue. Ad a) We send papers to reviewers directly after submission. Many of reviewers send the review in time not exceeding 10 days. But sometimes we are waiting long time for review and after about a month it is necessary to look for other reviewer. It should be noted that we have submitted usually about 1000 papers and it is not easy to find so many reviewers. Therefore very important is cooperation between authors and editor - authors are the right to suggest reviewers. If this suggested reviewer is reliable it can speed up the review process. It is stronly recommended to propose reviewers among PE authors (especially Polish authors) because it is more easy to motivate these reviewers. If author is not abble to find proposed reviewers among PE authors it means that the subject of submitted paper is rather far from the main area of interest of our journal. Ad b) In contrary to many other journals we are not supported by any organisations or state and incomes from subscription are only about 10% of our costs (payment depends directly on the number of subscribers - we estimate that we should have about 3 000 subscribers to enable publishing papers free of any charges - that is why we offer for subscribers some exemption of payments). Thus we have to ask the authors to cover the printing costs. Earlier we asked for payment after publishing of the paper but we met many problems with not honest authors. That is why we decided to start processing of the paper for publication only after receiving the payment. It can be very short time period - it is sufficient to send us the data for invoice (please do not pay without invoice becasue invoice number is the method of identification of payment). After receiving the invoice you can pay by bank transfer of by credit card. Please note that reviewers are independent and the review process does not depend on payments. Ad c) When the accepted paper is ready to publication it has to wait in a queue because we have to respect the order of submission. Typically time period between submission and publication does not exceed half of a year but if all components of submission procedure are realised efficiently it can be much shorter.
Przeglad is monitored by the Thomson Institute and the reviewers are asked to control the international standards of scientific publications (quality of work, originality, suitability of references, etc.) The papers can be submitted in English or Polish – the language is a choice of authors. However, translation from one language to another is NOT provided.
The paper (with main text, abstract and keywords) should be submitted ONLY via email (if the manuscript file is too large it can be sent by post on a CD – in such a case please contact the Editor beforehand).
The manuscript should be prepared as a Microsoft Word document (*.doc format) with embedded images. (The editorial office does NOT offer any services for typing from printed documents or making the images – all materials should be prepared by the authors.) Source files for the images are required (preferably in *.eps or *.tif format, but any other commonly used format is acceptable). If this is not possible, in special cases (please contact the Editor beforehand) an image can be submitted as a printed A4 page. A standard width of an image is equal to the width of a single column (8 cm). In the final version (8 cm wide), the inscriptions and captions within the 8 cm wide images should be NOT smaller than 2 mm. Each paper must contain postal and email address of the authors. In special cases (please contact the Editor beforehand) manuscripts in Latex format are accepted.
The authors should bear in mind, that Przeglad is devoted to a wide engineering audience. For this reason, if the paper relates to a specialised topic, a suitable introduction explaining the basic concepts and progress in the area should be included for the benefit of the potential readers. References should include the up to date publications in the matter. If the references are few or not up to date this may suggest that either the authors do not know the state-of-the-art in a given topic or that the topic is of little interest to the readers. Early-stage career authors are encouraged to submit their publications (e.g. compilations of their MSc or PhD theses). Industrial authors are also very welcome to submit papers describing commissioning of new solutions or inventions. The authors must be able to guarantee that the text and images used in the paper are their sole intellectual property. By submitting the work for publication in Przegląd, the authors transfer copyrights to the manuscript in its printed and Internet version to the publisher.

Issues with postconference papers
Przeglad Elektrotechniczny does NOT publish conference materials (e.g. papers submitted to a conference), with the possible exception of invited or keynote speaker papers. However, the extended versions of full papers (post-conference), different from those presented at the conference, can be published. Therefore, the organisers of the conference should consider accepting the conference materials in a form of extended abstracts (e.g. up to 2 pages), also in CD format. The post-conference papers can be then corrected and expanded upon, also by including the discussions from the conference.
We publish of postconference papers because in our opinion it extends the circle of our authors and readers. But not all postconference papers will be published – only the best papers with sufficiently good scientific quality should be recommended by Scientific Committe (based also on the recommendations of the peer-review referees). The Editorial Office can reject further papers based on the recommendation of additional referees in questionable cases.
We do not print the special conference or postconference issues - all papers recommended by Scientific Committee of the conference are next treated as normal papers. In comparison with normally submitted papers papers recommended by Conference Organizers can be published together in the same issue of Przeglad Elektrotechniczny (special topic issue).
