All those who took part, but do not fall under the category "Author", can be mentioned in the "Gratitude" section.


5. Abstract:

The abstract is the main and most readable part of the work, based on facts. The text of the annotation should not contain abbreviations and abbreviations, except for units of measurement. The abstract should be structured and consist of four mandatory sections: a) the purpose of the study; b) materials and methods; c) the results; d) conclusion. The volume of the annotation is 250-450 words. On the same page are placed "keywords" (from 3 to 10 words), contributing to the indexing of the article in information retrieval systems.


The title, abstract and key words should be presented in Russian and English.


6. Introduction:

The article should begin with an introduction, in which the formulation of the research task should be reflected. Here it should be noted the relevance of the research problem, the hypothesis and substantiate the importance of the work: what specific questions does your research try to answer?

Include a brief overview of key sources (necessarily sources for different types of work, links to primary sources, use, including English-language literature).

The introduction concludes with a summary of the overall goal of the work and a comment about whether this goal has been achieved.


7. The following questions should be answered in the methodology / methods:

1) How was the specific tool selected, how was the research organized?

2) Why was a certain method chosen, how was the object of research determined?

3) Step by step, describe the procedure.

4) What changes in the original method (if any) were necessary in your study? Why was this adaptation necessary?

The methodology should describe the study in such detail that another researcher, having familiarized himself with the section, could repeat the experience / actions.


8. In the "Results" section:

It is necessary to answer the question: what exactly did you find out from the results of the study?

It is recommended to present the results in the table and give explanations to it. The table should be understandable at a glance, since many readers get acquainted with the results section, skipping the methodology: if the results do not seem interesting, why find out how they were obtained.


9. Discussion

In the "Discussion" section, focus on the question: what conclusions from the results do not seem obvious?

Discussion should always focus on the interpretation of results and their applications.

Here you can describe the possible directions for further research and the scope of the study. But it is not necessary to make these points (about further research and about the boundaries of application of the results of the study) central in the discussion.


10. Conclusion

The section describes the results of the study, their interpretation and conclusions. The authors should explain how the results relate to the main hypothesis they put forward, and give a brief description of the significance of the findings, especially in relation to previous studies, and also the importance for further research.

For the cover letter, briefly give information on the following items:

- To sum up, why this work is a valuable addition to the already existing scientific literature in your field;

- describe how your research relates to previously published works (on what researches is based / with whom you may be in polemics);

- indicate the type of article you are submitting (for example, research article, systematic review, meta-analysis, clinical trials);

- to confirm that the article has not been published and is not under consideration in any other publication.


Requirements for the quality of English

One of the most important factors affecting the result of the review is the quality of the language of the article. The language of the article must correspond to the standards of academic writing. Most often Oxford English is required.

We draw your attention to the fact that the translation of the article by a professional translator does not exclude the necessity of proofreading an article by a native speaker. The translator can provide a good level of language without grammatical and terminological errors (the second - with the author's active assistance and providing them with a glossary). Proof reading by a native speaker who understands your topic will make the text accessible to the wide audience of readers, avoid stylistic errors, overloaded sentences and the so-called "Russian English".

For the editor, it is important that the article be written in a comprehensible language so that readers are not distracted from the content of the article to all that makes the perception of information difficult: grammatical, stylistic errors, atypical construction of sentences and so on.

In addition, the quality of the language of the article can indirectly affect the increase in the number of links to the published article.


Requirements for the design of the article.

The text of the article is provided in the format WORD (* .doc, * .docx) and includes:

The main text is printed in Times New Roman font 12 normal, the line spacing is single, it is aligned to the width. Each paragraph begins with a red line. The indent is 1.25 cm.

Accepted notation.

Accepted designations are decoded directly in the text of the article. Do not use abbreviated words, except for common (ie, etc., etc.). At the end of the sentence after dots and abbreviations of the kind etc., etc. there is no additional point. Case endings are placed only in ordinal numbers.

When typing, it is necessary to distinguish between "hyphens" and "dashes". Punctuation marks (.,; :) are not separated by a space from the word followed. The quotes and brackets ("", (), []) are not separated by spaces from the word or expression inside them. Watch for the presence of spaces in the lists and references, as well as between the percent sign and the unit of measurement from the number that must be put together by a space "Ctrl + Shift + Space".


All formulas mentioned in the text must be typed in the Microsoft Equation formula editor. It is allowed to set formulas in text mode. Microsoft Equation parameters should be as follows:

Style: text - Times New Roman, straight; functions - Times New Roman, direct; variable - Times New Roman, oblique, Greek letters - Symbol, direct; characters - Symbol, direct; matrix-vector - Times New Roman, straight, bold; numbers - Times New Roman, direct. Dimensions: conventional - 12 pt, large index - 10 pt, small index - 8 pt, large symbol - 16 pt, small symbol - 12 pt. It is not allowed to convert a formula into a drawing format. Formulas, which are referred to in the article, should be printed from a new line. In this case, the formulas are numbered in the order of the text of the article. Only the formulas for which references are needed should be numbered. After each formula, a comma or period must be placed (you can not put a period or comma in the formula editor) according to the context. The reference in the text to the formula is denoted by the number in parentheses: (1), (2), (3), which are tabulated at a distance of 14 cm using a marker on the top ruler. The dimensionality of all physical quantities must correspond to the International System of Units of Measurement (SI).



Are located after the first mention of them in the text. However, they should not duplicate the graphics. The title of the table begins with the word "Table" and its numbers are in order, they are written in Times New Roman font, normal, straight, located above the table without indentation. Tabular data is either centered, or left-aligned (Times New Roman font 12, normal font style). The only table is signed with the word "Table". When referring in the text to a single table, you need to write the word "table" without a reduction. If there are several tables, the tables are numbered and referenced as follows: "... in Table 1 ...". The interval of the paragraph before and after the table should be 6 pt.



The drawings are placed after the first mention of them in the text and can be performed as follows:

- in the built-in graphic editor MS Word;

- in graphic editors (Adobe Photoshop, CorelDraw);

- in the vector graphics editor Microsoft Visio.

For the name of the coordinate axes and the indication of their dimension, the font (Times New Roman 12, normal, straight) is used. The only figure is signed with the word "Figure", and when referring, you need to write the word "drawing" without any reduction. If there are several figures, the figures are numbered and referenced as follows: "... in Figure 2 ...".

Figures, graphics, screenshots, photos are presented in separate graphic files and with a resolution of 300 pixels per inch and dimensions of at least 10x15cm or 15x10cm.

The bibliography (bibliography) is printed on a separate sheet (s) in 2 intervals, each source from a new line under the serial number. In the list all the works are listed in the order of citation (references to them in the text), and not by the alphabet of the surnames of the first authors. When mentioning individual authors' names in the text, they should be preceded by initials (the names of foreign authors are given in the original transcription).

In the text of the article, bibliographic references are given in Arabic numerals in square brackets. It is not recommended to include dissertational works in the literature list, since it is difficult to get acquainted with them, as well as abstracts of dissertations the main content of which is set forth in the publications cited in the abstract, the links to which appear more correct. References to abstracts of papers, especially those published more than 5 years ago, are also undesirable.

The order of compiling the list is as follows: a) author (s) of the book or article (italics). Included are ALL (!) Authors (with initials after the last names); b) the title of the book or article; c) output data. In some cases, the authors of books are their editors or compilers. After the last name of them in parentheses should be set (red.), In foreign references (ed.).

In the bibliographic description of the book, after its name, the following is given: the city where it was published, after the colon - the name of the publishing house, after the semicolon - the year of publication (after the year of publication, a colon is placed), pages. The city where the book is published is given in full, except for Moscow (M.) and St. Petersburg (St. Petersburg). If the link is given to the chapter from the book, first the authors and the title of the chapter are mentioned, after the dot - the "In": and the surname (s) of the author (s) or the editor appearing in his capacity, then - the name of the book and its output.

In the bibliographic description of the article from the journal, the names and initials of ALL (!) Authors in italics, the title of the article, the journal (the title of the journal in italics), year, volume (indicated only by ARAB numbers), journal number, page numbers "from" and "before" . After the title of the article and the magazine, points are placed.

References to foreign sources should contain the digital identifier of the object (doi) (if available), which is defined on the site http://www.crossref.org/guestquery/).

For the reliability of the bibliographic data presented, the authors bear responsibility until the right to publish is denied.

The magazine's website also has the opportunity to publish supporting materials - including large-scale graphics and drawings, videos, presentations, etc.
