Declaration of Accessibility (in polish)

Introduction to the Declaration

Jagiellonian University Press commits to ensure the accessibility of its websites following the Act of April 4, 2019, on the digital accessibility of public entities' websites and mobile applications. This accessibility statement applies to the ejournals.eu.

Website publication date: 2014-08-01. Date of last significant update: 2024-04-15.

The website is partially compliant with the Act of April 4, 2019, on the digital accessibility of public entities' websites and mobile applications due to the following non-conformities or exclusions:

  • Some of the published images lack alternative descriptions, these contents:
    • Have a promotional nature and are not used for current tasks of the public entity.
    • Are not updated and do not undergo changes in appearance and/or structure after September 23, 2019, which is in line with permitted statutory exclusions.
  • Provided videos lack audio descriptions because most of them were published before the entry into force of the digital accessibility act and/or lack dialogue lines. Some of them come from third parties (e.g., interviews with Authors), which is in line with permitted statutory exclusions.
  • Provided maps are not fully adapted to the needs of disabled persons (contact details of the Publisher are also available in textual form in the Contact tab).
  • The website does not allow stopping slideshows and other time-changing content.
  • The website does not allow changing the spacing between lines, paragraphs, and/or words. However, it is possible to change the display size of the page and font size.
  • There may be situations where, despite the efforts of the website editors, certain documents published on the website are unavailable due to the fact that:
    • They come from various sources,
    • They were published before the entry into force of the digital accessibility act.

This statement was prepared on: 2024-02-13. The declaration was prepared based on a self-assessment conducted by the public entity.

Date of the last review of the declaration: 2024-02-13.

Below are the keyboard shortcuts for specific browsers:

Keyboard Navigation

The website can be operated using only a keyboard. The pages are based on a header structure that allows for quick navigation. Filters, calendars, forms, and other functionalities are built according to standards and are accessible using a keyboard. People who do not use a mouse can easily navigate the site. At the beginning of each main page, we have placed links - shortcuts leading to:

  • Content,
  • News,
  • Contact,
  • Accessibility declaration.

On other subpages, we have included shortcuts leading to:

  • Navigation,
  • Content,
  • Site footer,
  • Site search,
  • Contact,
  • Accessibility declaration.

Our website should be significantly zoomable using browser tools.


There are many downloadable files on the Jagiellonian University Press website. Not all files may be fully accessible, e.g., they may lack headers or alternative descriptions for tables and graphics.

However, in the case of documents scanned and placed on the website, we also publish their available alternative version.

Alternative Descriptions for Graphics and Images

We ensure that alternative descriptions are added to graphics and images presenting essential information. Additionally, buttons and form fields are properly described.

Page Zoom

Internet browsers allow for zooming in on pages using keyboard shortcuts or appropriate settings. This is particularly helpful for people with visual impairments. If you want to learn how to easily enlarge or reduce the content displayed on the screen, go to the page: Zooming in and out of pages in Windows.

(Attach additional pages from the end of the document and set a link to this page in editing)


The contrast ratio of content conveying elements is at least 4.5 to 1.


We add subtitles and descriptions of the full content of the video placed in a separate file to the posted video materials.

Content Clarity and Readability

We make efforts to ensure that our content is understandable, and the way it is presented directly affects the readability of the materials and helps in information reception. Therefore, we divide long texts into paragraphs, use highlights, and appropriately emphasize quotes and important information.

Ensuring website accessibility is a process

We strive to ensure the accessibility of our website, but if you find errors, have comments, or want to help us improve the website itself, please contact us at the email address: kontakt@wuj.pl.


Everyone has the right to demand digital accessibility of a website, mobile application, or any of their elements. You can also request the provision of information in alternative forms, such as reading a digitally inaccessible document, describing the content of a movie without audio description, etc. Such a request should include the data of the person making the request, an indication of the website or mobile application concerned, and the preferred method of contact. If the person requesting indicates the need for information in an alternative form, they should also specify the form for that information.
