{tab Practical Advice}

Before deciding to write an article, it is necessary in particular:

  • get acquainted in detail with
    • guidelines for authors,
    • ethical standards,
    • the principles of the renouncing procedure,
  • to clarify the purpose, the key message and the readers to whom the article will be addressed.


  • Select keywords that have the most general use. Avoid unique expressions that are unlikely to be used in the future. In the online version of Vojenské rozhledy, key words are called “tags” and allow identifying articles dealing with similar topics. You can find a list of the already used keywords used or under the “Keyword List” bar.

Bibliographic links and Quotations

  • Bibliographic links and quotations used in the article must respect the international standard ISO 690: 2010. We recommend using the Citation Machine, available at http://www.citationmachine.net/.


Recommendations for Preparing Your Paper

When you work on your final version, you should eliminate those building elements (words, sentences, paragraphs) that are not directly related to the idea being communicated or are repeated. Try to remove as much as possible in order to make the article brief and clear in terms of the topic of interest. The work ends only when there is a risk that if you remove one more word, the whole idea will collapse. Empty places, where the structure of the article is fragile and the text is less comprehensible, should be supplemented with appropriate terms that support the materiality of the body.

N.B.: There is an analogy of building a house of cards, subsequently taking cards away one by one before the house collapses; in a PC, this should be easier.

General principles of writing papers

Keywords should not repeat terms already used in the title. Reading the title and the keywords must give the reader an idea of the content of the paper. The abstract is based on the key words and complements what the reader knows about the paper. It contains the major new findings. It does not contain any comments. The conclusion of the paper contains all new findings, if necessary, with explanations. Its concise content results in an abstract. The title of the article, keywords, abstract, and conclusion must form the ‘red thread’ that represents the meaning of the content of the paper. The introduction to the paper should briefly state why the paper has been written and what it is supposed to achieve.

Abstract - new contributions, findings yet unknown. Max. 950 characters, including spaces.

Keywords - max. 5 words (not repeating the title of the paper).

Introduction - very short, just stating the purpose of the research, why.

Methodology - material used and methods of its examination - always with reference to the sources of the methods and material used.

Results - what was found using the methods to examine the material, always statistically processed (tables, graphs).

Discussion - why are the results what they are, what do they show hitherto unknown or how do they correct the known.

Conclusion - indicate the main new findings and what shift they have brought in the research.

Interdependence of individual parts of the structure.
