Manuscripts should be typewritten in English. Texts should be singly spaced with a font size of 12 pt. The corresponding author should be identified (including e-mail address). Follow this order when typing manuscripts: Title, authors, affiliations, abstract, main text (short introduction, material and methods, results, discussion), conclusions, acknowledgments, references. At the end of manuscript short CV of the authors with the photos are welcome.
All illustrations should be provided in the camera-ready form, suitable for reproduction (which may include reduction). Please import the Figures or Tables into your text. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used. The equations should be numbered in round brackets.
All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of References following the text of the manuscript. In the text refer to the References by a number in square brackets on the line (e.g. Family name [1,2]), and the full reference should be given in a numerical list at the end of the paper. References should be given in the following form: `1` K. Smith, M. Who, in: Surface and Colloid Science (E. Matijević, Ed.), Vol. 14, Plenum Press, New York, Londyn, p. 301, 1987 `2` A. Kim, Langmuir, 9 2344 (1993).
The electronic version of manuscript should be prepared in the MS Word package (*.doc or *.rtf file).
Two copies of the manuscript with the electronic copy on CD should be submitted directly to the Editor-in-Chief:

Operando spectroscopy: new methodology or new name?
J. Ryczkowski Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Chemical Technology, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University pl. M. Curie-Skłodowskiej 3, 20-031 Lublin, Poland tel. +48-81 537-55-46; fax: +48-81 537-55-65; e-mail: email@example.com
Abstract: This paper describes bases of the operando methodology. Moreover, indicates similarities as well as differences between classical in situ studies and operando spectroscopy. Infrared in situ studies in catalysis are given as an example that operando methodology was successfully applied in the past under the classical name – in situ studies.
