The Editors endorse the principles embodied in the Helsinki

Declaration, and expect all research involving human subjects to

be conducted in accordance with these principles. The authors of

clinical and research articles are obliged to protect the patients'

right to privacy. Only clinically or scientifically essential data can

or should be published. Therefore, if it is necessary to identify a

patient in a case report, illustration or paper, the Editors require

that the authors obtain and provide a written consent form from

the patient or his/her legal guardian to publish their data, including

photographs, results of imaging tests, etc., prior to publication.

For animal experimentation reported in the Journal, it is expected

that investigators will have observed the Interdisciplinary Principles

and Guidelines for the Use of Animals in Research, Testing, and

Education issued by the New York Academy of Sciences' Ad hoc

Committee on Animal Research.

All human and animal studies must have been approved by the

primary investigator's institutional review board prior to submission

of the manuscript to the journal for review. Manuscripts including

the results of examination of patients (involving a risk element)

must have a copy of the written approval issued by the ethical

committee attached.

Journal policy requires that reviewers, associate editors, editors,

and senior editors reveal in written correspondence to the Editor-

In-Chief any relationships they have that could be construed as

causing a conflict of interest with regard to a manuscript under

review. The letter should include a statement of any financial

relationships with commercial companies involved with a product

under investigation.

The authors relinquish the copyright of their work exclusively to

the Journal. Upon acceptance, all published manuscripts become

the permanent property of Publisher (Polish Psychiatric Association

Editorial Committee), and may not be published elsewhere without

After many years of publishing the journal in a very classical format, we have decided to implement some important

editorial changes. We hope you'll find the new form more convenient and reader friendly.

As previously, Archives will be published quarterly (March, June, September, December), exceptionally this double issue has

been provided especially for The XLII Polish Psychiatrists' Congress, which takes place the 14-16th of June in Szczecin.

In this issue we start a presentation of a series of Antoni Kepiński studies. His thoughts and work influenced generations of Polish psychiatrists. Some of his books were also published in Russian and Ukrainian contributing to transformation

of mental health care. As the first we shall bring Kępiński's papers concerning Auschwitz problems.

We have to mention also some important changes in the Editorial Board - we are very sorry that Prof. Frank Dattilio was obliged to finish his duty as an Editorial Board Member. Nevertheless, he will cooperate with us in The Advisory Board.

Therefore we would like to use the occasion and thank him for his highly professional skills and dedicated attitude. We are wishing him further successful activities in new fields!
