1. Paper submission requirements

Please write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these). Authors who require information about language editing and copyediting services please contact the Editorial Board for more information. Submission to this journal proceeds totally online. Use the following guidelines to prepare your article. Via the homepage of this journal you will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of various files.


1.1 Formatting

Please submit your article as *.doc file. The size of the article should not exceed 18-20 pages (including figures and tables) typed in Times New Roman, Font size 14, spacing 1.5.


1.2 Title

Paper title must be concise. Please place it at the top of the first page typed in upper case, bold. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.


1.3 Author names and affiliations

Make sure you provide full names of all authors, their scientific titles and full names of their affiliations. Present the authors’ affiliation addresses (where the work was done) below their names and the e-mail address of the corresponding author.


1.4 Abstract and keywords

All papers must include an abstract (up to 2000 symbols) and keywords (up to 7 words, listed in alphabetical order).

A concise and factual abstract is required. It should summarize the problem, the method, the results, and the conclusions. It is advisable not to include references to figures or tables, or citation of the reference in the abstract. Authors are invited to submit keywords associated with their paper.


2. Article structure

Article must contain the following sections:

  1. Introduction

  2. Methods and Materials

  3. Results

  4. Discussion

  5. Conclusions


2.1 Introduction

The introduction should be brief and clearly state the problem being investigated, the background that explains the problem, and the reasons for conducting the research. You should summarize relevant research to provide context, state how your work differs from published work and importantly what questions you are answering. Explain what findings of others, if any, you are challenging or extending. Briefly describe your experiment, hypothesis(es), research question(s), and general experimental design or method.


2.2 Methods and Materials

The key purpose of this section is to provide the reader enough details so they can replicate your research. Explain how you studied the problem, identify the procedures you followed, and order these chronologically where possible. If your methods are new, they will need to be explained in detail; otherwise, name the method and cite the previously published work, unless you have modified the method, in which case refer to the original work and include the amendments. Identify the equipment and describe materials used and specify the source if there is variation in quality of materials. Include the frequency of observations, what types of data were recorded. Be precise in describing measurements and include errors of measurement. Name any statistical tests used so that your numerical results can be validated. It is advisable to use the past tense, and avoid using the first person.


2.3 Results

In this section you objectively present your findings, and explain in words what was found. Please be clear and lay out your findings in a logical sequence. Raw data are rarely included in a scientific article; instead the data are analyzed and presented in the form of figures (graphs), tables, and/or descriptions of observations. The results section should follow a logical sequence based on the table and figures that best presents the findings that answer the question or hypothesis being investigated. Tables and figures are assigned numbers separately, and should be in the sequence that you refer to them in the text. Figures should have a brief description (a legend), providing the reader sufficient information to know how the data were produced. It is important not to interpret your results - this should be done in the Discussion section.


2.4 Discussion

In this section you describe what your results mean, specifically in the context of what was already known about the subject of the investigation. You should link back to the introduction by way of the question(s) or hypotheses posed. You should indicate how the results relate to expectations and to the literature previously cited, whether they support or contradict previous theories. Most significantly, the discussion should explain how the research has moved the body of scientific knowledge forward. It is important not to extend your conclusions beyond what is directly supported by your results, so avoid undue speculation. It is advisable to suggest practical applications of your results, and outline what would be the next steps in your study.


2.5 Acknowledgments

This section should be brief and include the names of individuals who have assisted with your study, including, contributors, reviewers, suppliers who may have provided materials free of charge, etc. If your paper is part of grant research, please provide details of the project grant and indicate it as such (*).


2.6 References instructions

References are placed at the end of the paper in the order as they appear in the text. Please refer to the reference number and page number, as in [1, p. 25].
Last name and initials of all authors, full title, publishing house, place and year of publication, and number of pages must be provided. For journal articles also include number of volume and issue. Please DO NOT include unpublished sources in the list of references.

References are listed in the language of the original without abbreviations. References to resources in Russian must be transliterated and translated into English as in the examples below. The examples of how to reference printed and electronic resources
