Note: Articles sent to the Editorial Board via the Editorial System by the end of January 2021 will be published on the old terms (with a copyright notice and the transfer of the copyrights to the Publisher of the journal), and the articles may be used only under fair use.

The publisher recommends that authors use the version published on the AAMS website (the final version after the review and editor and author corrections) for autonomous sharing/archiving of works and metadata in any repositories and journal indexing databases. The sharing/archiving of preprints (author’s version before the review) and postprints (author’s version after the review, before publisher editing) requires providing the following information: a) preprint – e.g., “This work has been submitted to the Editorial Office of Annales Academiae Medicae Silesiensis (annales.sum.edu.pl), pending review”; after publishing the final version on the website of the journal, additional information shall be provided about it, e.g. “The final version of the work is available at ... [link to the work] under the license ... [name of the license]"; b) postprint – e.g. “This work is the author’s version corrected in accordance with reviewers’ comments, admitted for publication in Annales Academiae Medicae Silesiensis (annales.sum.edu.pl)”; after publishing the final version on the website of the journal, additional information shall be provided about it, e.g. “The final version of the work is available at ... [link to the work] under the license ... [name of the license]".
