The editor-in-chief decides to publish the article according to the Editorial charter, scientific reviews and opinions of editorial board members. The editor-in-chief is also guided by the accuracy of the data presented and the scientific significance of the work in question.

Requirements to article design

For the publication of the article in time, it is necessary to provide the editorial office 4 months before the next issue of the journal at least:
* letter of guarantee (see the sample) on a letterhead from the Head of the institution;
* information about the author (authors): full name (completely!), place of work, position, academic title, degree, direction of the research, contact phone numbers, postal and electronic addresses;
* the maximum volume is 0.4 of the sheet (16 thousand characters including spaces, or about 10 sheets A4-size of the text typed in Times New Roman font, 14 pt with 1,5-line spacing without formatting);
* the tables are executed by regular MS Word tools or imported from MS Excel (without any extraneous information!);
* drawings and diagrams should be black and white or halftone (shades of gray); elements of vector images should be grouped; resolution of raster images (photos, scans) - 300 dpi at least;
* lists are numbered and marked manually (to avoid formatting loss during layout);
* notes are made in the form of usual (not terminal!) footnotes by regular MS Word tools;
* formulas, as a rule, are created in MS Equotion (regular editor of MS Word formulas) or Math Lab;
* bibliography are situated at the end of the article. Sources are arranged in alphabetical order.


* Title of the article (in CAPITAL LETTERS)
The maximum length of the title is 10-12 words. Too long titles, as well as short ones, are difficult to perceive for the readers. The title of the article should be: informative, concise, fit the scientific style of the text, contain the main keywords characterizing the topic (subject) of research and the content of the work. The title should be easy to perceive for readers and simply identified by the search engines.

* Initials, surname, academic degree, academic title of the author (s) and the name of the organization in which they work, telephone, e-mail in italics

* Brief annotation of 150-250 words (after the indentation)
Annotation (abstract, essay, author's summary) includes a description of the main topic, the problems of the object, the objectives of the study, the basic methods, the results of the research and the main conclusions. In the annotation it is necessary to indicate what is new in this scientific article in comparison with the other ones, related in subject and purpose. Annotation should be:
- informative (not to contain common words);
- original;
- meaningful (to reflect the main content of the article and the results of research);
- structured (to follow the logic describing the results in the article);
- compact (fit into the volume of 150-250 words).
It is convenient to write a structured annotation on a structured article, choosing from each section the most important information that will provide together a complete picture of the content of the material and will allow to find this article using the main terms included in the annotation (along with the title and keywords). It is not allowed to include in the annotation notes to sources from the full text, as well as abbreviations which are
revealed just in the full text. All types of abbreviations should be revealed in the annotation. It is need to understand that the annotation is main and initial source of information about the article.

* Keywords (5-10).
The keywords making up the semantic core of the article are a list of basic concepts and categories that serve to describe investigated problem. These words serve as a guide for the reader and are used to search for articles in electronic databases; therefore, they must reflect the discipline (branch of science which the article is written within), the topic, purpose, and object of study. As keywords can be used both, single words and word combinations in singular and nominative case.
* The text of the article with the included illustrative material (tables, figures), after the indent. Structuring the article into sections below is a prerequisite.


This section describes general research topic, purposes and objectives of the proposed work, theoretical and practical significance, provides the most famous and authoritative publications on the topic of the study, identifies unsolved problems. This section should contain the rationale for the need and relevance of the study. Information in the Introduction should be organized according to the principle “from the general to the particular”. As a rule, the introduction consists of four subsections: 1. Description of the problem which the study is related with; 2. Review of literature related to the study; 3. Description of the information gaps in the raised problem or description of what has not been done; 4. Formulation of the purpose and objectives of the study.

Methods and materials

In this section, the methods used to obtain the results are described in detail., General scheme of experiments of the study is usually presented first, then they are presented amply and so detailed that any competent specialist can reproduce them using only the text of the article. When using standard methods and procedures, it is better to refer to relevant sources, not to forget the description of standard methods modifications, if there were any.


This section presents experimental or theoretical data obtained during the study. The results are given in the processed form: as tables, graphs, organizational or structural diagrams, equations, photographs, drawings. This section contains only facts. Their interpretation, comparison with the data of other researchers should be left for the section Discussion. If there were lots of similar dependencies, presented in the form of graphs, so it is need to give only typical one, and the quantitative differences between them should be presented as a table. There are three ways to present the results:
- text (verbal representation);
- tables (semi-verbal presentation);
- drawings: diagrams, graphs, images (visual presentation).
All the ways to present the results of quantitative research (text, tables and drawings) should complement but not to repeat each other.


The conclusion contains the main ideas of the essential text of article. It is advisable to compare the obtained results with those that were planned to be obtained, as well as to show their novelty and practical significance, to highlight encountered restrictions. At the end, there are conclusions and recommendations, moreover the main directions of further research in this area are determined.


In this section it is customary to express appreciation to colleagues who have assisted in the implementation of the study or have expressed critical remarks about the article. However, it is necessary to obtain the consent of those you plan to thank before you express gratitude. If non-standard equipment or materials were used during the work, it is possible to name what and whose special equipment the experiments were carried out on, and also to list the sources of all other special materials and objects of research (cultures, animals). It is need to express gratitude for the financial support of the study to organizations and funds, to wit grants, contracts, scholarships due to, were possible to conduct the research.
