||The primary (original) version
of the BPS is the printed edition.

only accepts for publication commissioned papers that have been formatted
in accordance with the following guidelines.
||Papers should be sent to
the Editorial Committee by e-mail or on a storage medium accompanied by
a hard copy.
||Component parts of a paper
should be saved in separate files bearing appropriate names.
||In order to maintain a high
standard of academic integrity of papers printed in the BPS and following
the guidelines of the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education (2011),
the Editorial Committee implements procedures safeguarding against 'ghost
writing' and 'guest authorship'. Therefore, each submitted paper should
be accompanied by a written statement concerning the contribution of each
author and the sources of research financing.
||All dates in the BPS are
calibrated [BC; see Radiocarbon vol. 28, 1986 and next volumes].
Deviations from this rule will be pointed out in notes and marked as "bc".
