Instructions to the authors


Geomatics, Landmanagement and Landscape (GLL) journal accepts only original English-language scientific papers relating to all aspects of spatial and environmental processes.

Preparation of the manuscript

1. Text volume: manuscript cannot exceed 12 pages (A-4 format), including tables and illustrations. The text should be written in 12-point font (Times New Roman), with line spacing of 1.5 cm, and 2.5 cm margins on each side.

2. Tables and illustrations: they must not be larger than 12.5 × 19.5 cm (format B-5). The tables should contain only relevant data with relevant statistical figures. Avoid repeating the results presented elsewhere in the body of text (e.g. charts). Each table with the accompanying heading, and each drawing identified by a number, must be described separately. Tables and drawings should be numbered in the order in which they appear in the text.

3. Template:

Title: concise, corresponding to the content.

Authors: In the multi-author paper, the order of names proposed by the authors is adopted.

At the bottom of the last page, provide first and last names, place(s) of work, e-mail address(es), ORCID, and full postal address(es) of all the authors who are submitting the article.

Abstract: a short summary (200–250 words) of the problem, containing basic information about the objective, methods, results, and main conclusions.

Keywords: up to a maximum of 6 words or phrases related to the main topic of the article.

Main body of the article: the text should consist of the following parts: introduction, subject of and methodology of the research, results, summary and conclusions. The objective of the research should be specified in the introduction.

References to literature: quotations in the text should be described in Latin alphabet with the author’s name and the year of publication, e.g. [Kowal 2000, Kowal and Nowak 2000, Baran et al. 2007]. The cited publications are to be listed at the end of the article according to the following standard:
