According to APPA
procedure, the prepared manuscripts should not be in camera ready
format. To help you estimate the length of the manuscript, we present
here few hints.
A guide to estimate the length of paper as it will appear in print
printed pages of the new layout of Acta Physica Polonica A are
equivalent to about 10000 characters of text. This value excludes the
title, authors list with three different affiliations, about 250
characters long abstract and PACS numbers, all of these being
equivalent to about 3200 characters.
One column of two-column page consists of about 58 lines of text with
no formulas, figures nor tables. Each line of text in one column
consists of about 55 characters. Using formulas or tables, their
equivalent length in characters can be estimated individually using
formating for such column of text given above in word editor. Also, an
equivalent length of reference list should be estimated based on such
One figure of square shape, positioned in a single column of printed
text, is equivalent to about 1400 characters including short caption.
Symbols on figures should be well-readable after reducing the size of
figure to fit into a single column.
Section titles mentioned in the APPA guide to authors of papers may be
omitted in short conference communications papers adopted by this

lines with 80 characters per line.)
