I would like to invite you to submit your texts to be published in Volume 7 of our magazine. It will be entitled JOHN AMOS COMENIUS’ PANSOPHIA IN INTERPRETATIONS AND REINTERPRETATIONS BY POLISH AND EUROPEAN COMENIOLOGISTS (2020). After the “journey” Towards comeniology as a science, which enabled us to find many new leads for comeniological research, which inspire us for further research and interpretation, we are approaching pansophia, John Amos Comenius’ philosophy, which all of his writings are imbued with. Despite this fact, pansophia is still an abstract research branch for us, the contemporary dealing with John Amos Comenius’ life and output. It seems that only nowadays, in the 21st century, this idea based upon the message “to teach… everyone… everything about everything.. with all the senses… “ is coming true, mainly thanks to the modern media and their common availability. Comenius kept searching for the harmony of all things. Did he find it?
The subject matter of the volume is correspondent with the 350th anniversary of John Amos Comenius’ death celebrated in Poland, Europe and all over the world. Days of Comenius’ commemoration, conferences and seminars are taking place. The celebrations are certain to enrich the knowledge with new elements and deepen the interpretation of his ideas, including - or maybe first of all – of PANSOPHIA. However, to a large extent it depends on comeniological centres’ good cooperation. Will it be successful in the jubilee years?
Volume 7 of “Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin, PEDAGOGY series” is the second year’s accomplishment of the Ministry project Support for scientific magazines. For the first time, the whole process of text submission will take place online on the platform ICI Publishers Panel (see the file “Instructions of how to post an article on the platform ICI Publishers Panel”).
Please accept our sincere thanks and acknowledgements for preparing articles for the volume. It was devoted to the international discussion of comeniology as a science. Its subject matter was the most difficult - so far – and had emerged naturally from the subject matters of the previous volumes, mainly volume four, describing the Polish and European perceptions of John Amos Comenius, and volume five, about the critical interpretation of this controversial figure and his rich output in the CONTEMPORARY period. It could be stated that between 2014 and 2019 we created a unique system of knowledge about John Amos Comenius, his life and writings, and we started an international discussion of comeniology as a science. The publication is interdisciplinary and multilingual.
We present information about comeniological conferences in Europe in the jubilee years of John Amos Comenius (2020-2022):
I would like to invite you to submit your texts to be published in Volume 6 of “Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin, pedagogy series”. It will be entitled Towards comeniology as a science – discussions – polemics – dilemmas. I will be delighted if you agree to take part in this discussion and encourage others to do the same. Many professors from Poland and Europe have already declared their readiness to participate in this discussion, which is so important for all of us, dealing with John Amos Comenius. The deadline for text submission is 30 June 2019.
It is a pleasure to inform you that “Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin, pedagogy series” has taken part in the project of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education Support for scientific magazines and become its beneficiary. This year the publication has been indexed in the international list of magazines ICI Journals Master List / ICI World of Journals, and consequently, it has been awarded 20 points since 2019. We are going to use the electronic system ICI Publishers Panel to manage the magazine, which will enable us to spread the articles of Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin throughout the world more easily.

editor-in-chief of Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin
Dear Authors of Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin
of PEDAGOGY series
I would like to express my sincere thanks for your comeniological cooperation. Your interesting and valuable papers published so far in the three volumes of Siedlce Comeniological Research Bulletin have made John Amos Comenius and his extensive writings more familiar both to the readers and other authors. They have made them aware of how up-to-date many of his views of education and ideas are. The idea of the project was to research more detailed issues present in John Amos Comenius’ writings, and make them available to the reader in a form of entries. I am fully aware of what a difficult and time-consuming task it has been. Some of the difficulties the authors have encountered were: lack of Polish translations of Comenius’ writings or studies of his writings in Polish, a language barrier due to the lack of knowledge of the original language of his writings, and finally lack of time due to the rush of daily university routine.
The papers prove an individual perception of Comenius by each of the authors, both Polish and foreign. The variety of these perceptions inspired me to design a volume entitled Modern perceptions of Comenius. We expect Polish, European and worldwide perceptions of John Amos Comenius and his writings to be submitted. In this way, we would like to enrich our comeniological knowledge with these perceptions. Gradually, an area of this knowledge would emerge which could be called “international” knowledge. That is why I would like to suggest writing a paper or papers in the author’s mother tongue (about 20 thousand signs with spaces + bibliography each; shorter or longer texts will also be accepted), accompanied by a one-page (1.200 signs with spaces) English abstract each. The best deadline for submission would be the end of April 2017. In reality, however, meeting deadlines turns out to be difficult for the authors, so they often need to be modified by the editor.
I want to invite you to take part in the creation of the following volumes. I address the letter to all authors: regular, those who have submitted at least one paper, and future ones, hoping for a good and fruitful cooperation.

Guidelines for the authors of entries for
“ Siedlce Comeniological Journal”
“Siedlce Comeniological Journal” (“Siedleckie Zeszyty Komeniologiczne” – SZK) is the first phase of the compilation of John Amos Comenius Lexicon. The material collected and published in the journal will ultimately form the basis of the lexicon entries.
“Siedlce Comeniological Journal” is divided into two series: a) that pertaining to the study of literature and history, b) pedagogical. Professor Roman Mnich is in charge of the former and Professor Barbara Sitarska – for the latter. As the material builds up, it will be published in successive issues of the journal prior to the publication in the Lexicon with later updates and corrections.
The Lexicon will consist of three parts:
The Lexicon will include significant achievements of contemporary Comenius studies in the light of major strategies of interpretation and reception of John Amos Comenius’ works.
The lexicon entries must be submitted by January 31, 2013.
