The editors prefer manuscripts that contain the results of innovative experimental research that are relevant to the international community, contribute to the development of scientific, technical and social ecosystems and use a variety of research methods.

In addition, we accept the following types of scientific publications : innovative project; review article; clinical case; clinical research; perspective article, opinion and comment; book review.

The volume of manuscripts is not more than 1.5 author's sheets (1 author's sheet – 40,000 printed characters (including spaces between words, punctuation marks, numbers, etc.)). The minimum volume is 20,000 printed characters.

The manuscript has not been previously published or sent to other journals (or you must provide the necessary explanations in comments to the editor).

The text meets the requirements for stylistics and bibliography set out in the sections below.

The article does not contain information that is prohibited from publication under current French law, and therefore the article may be made publicly available.

The copyright to the work has not been transferred before and will not be transferred to third parties in the future. There is no conflict between the authors of the article (if there are several authors). The article does not violate the intellectual property rights of others.

Each article must contain metadata. They are published in the publication, on the website of the publication and stored in information and scientometric databases.

Metadata are:

  1. UDC – it is presented in a separate line, on the left before the information about the authors.
  2. Information about the author (authors) indicates to the right above the title of the publication (command – alignment with the right edge of the text) with the first and last name; line below – academic degree and academic title; positions, places of work; another line below – the settlement (in parentheses), where the author lives or works, country names, E-mail. All information is given in the nominative case. The name of the author (s) is highlighted in bold and italics. Through the line on the right (command – align the right edge of the text) indicate the ORCID.
  3. The title of the publication (12–18 words) is given in capital (bold) letters in one paragraph (command — alignment in the center of the text).

If the publication is submitted in parts in several issues of the publication, it is not allowed to change its title. In addition, in the footnote to the title of the publication you should provide information about its continuation or end (Continued (End)). Start ”see…and indicate the issue number (s) of the publication in which the previous parts of this publication were printed). 

  1. Abstract is placed before the text of the publication after its title. The volume is 1,800 characters with spaces in each annotation. The abstract is submitted in accordance with the requirements of scientometric bases as a structured abstract and must contain the following selected elements: the purpose of the study, the research methodology, the scientific novelty, the conclusions.
  2. Keywords (three to eight) are presented on a separate line after the annotation, marking “Keywords” (these two words are highlighted in bold and italics).



The main part of the article should contain the following structural elements:

The Problem Statement. Defining the problem in general and its connection with important scientific or practical tasks.

The Analysis of Sources and Recent Research Papers. Review of works related to research in which the problem is solved and on which the author relies; identification of previously unstudied parts of the general problem to which the article is devoted; an explanation of how the study fills a gap in the scientific literature; novelty compared to other studies.

The Purpose of the Articlе. 

The Main Material Statement.

The Results of the Research. Describe the research procedure and the results obtained: provide information about the stages of the research (in chronological order), methods (quantitative, qualitative, mixed), participants of the experiment, means of data collection and processing.
It is important to ensure that the ”``Methods” section contains adequate experimental or methodological information needed by others in the field to reproduce their work. A description of standard protocols and methods should be provided. Any study reporting experiment(s) involving human subjects should include a statement of ethical approval/informed consent at the end of the manuscript.
The presentation of the main material of the research involves a full justification of the obtained scientific results. We recommend: reminding readers of the conceptual hypotheses or questions you ask about the transactions you have performed; ensure that the answer/result as well as the statistics are clear; clearly interpret the results; determine whether the hypotheses are justified, what is the perspective of the results for the reader; indicate unexpected results and compare your findings with the findings of previous studies (mentioned at the beginning of the article in the review of sources). If there are differences, explain why you think these differences exist and what they might mean. Consider the limitations of the study (if any). What questions did your research raise? What questions could you not answer?

The Conclusions (summarizing the research and outlining the prospects for further research of the problem).

Make a synthesis of the key points (not a summary of the main topics); prove to readers and the scientific community that the results are important and valuable. Outline the prospects for further research in this direction.

All parts of the article should be in bold.

Acknowledgments (optional). Mention grants or other financial support for the study, thank all those who helped with the study or reviewed the manuscript. This section also explains any special authorship agreements, for example, if the authors have made different contributions to the study.

Funding (optional).

All parts of the article should be in bold.


It is necessary to cite at least 25 sources in the experimental article and 50 in the theoretical.

It is necessary to consider the reliability of the sources used! If it is not possible to determine the author and / or year of publication, it is better to refrain from citing such a source, as it is not reliable.

Self-citation should be appropriate and not exceed 20%.

Most sources should be from the last 5 years (preferably articles in reputable journals indexed in Web of Science and / or Scopus). Geography must cover at least three regions; most sources must be in English.

We do not recommend quoting textbooks, manuals, if the analysis of didactic materials was not the purpose of the study.

References to conference abstracts and other non-peer-reviewed materials should be minimized.

We recommend replacing dissertations with articles in reputable journals by the same author.

You can format your citations according to APA style at the online automatic citation generator site: Creating APA Citations.

Be sure to submit the DOIs of all cited sources and check the sources on Crossref.



Text editor no lower than Microsoft Office 2003, font – Times New Roman (size 12 for title, 9 for annotation, keywords and source list, 11 – for text). File format – .DOC, .DOCX or .RTF. If non-standard fonts were used when typing, be sure to provide their full name or the font itself (standard Windows location: local drive C: / Windows / Fonts).


The text is typed without hyphenation. Paragraph indents should be formatted according to the following algorithm: select the required text; in the "Paragraph" dialog box set the following parameters: alignment – width, indentation on the right – 0 cm, indentation on the left – 0 cm, spacing before – 0 pt, spacing after – 0 pt, line spacing – 1 line, indentation of the first line – 0 , 75 cm. It is forbidden to format paragraphs with spaces and tabs.

Create tables automatically via the menu "Table – Insert table" and number sequentially. To the right above the name of the table to place the inscription "Table" indicating its number (highlight in italics). The title of the table should be given in the middle of the page symmetrically to the text, highlighted in bold. All tables must be referenced in the text ("Table….", "Table…", "Table…").

Figures must be uploaded as separate files (one per figure) and accompanying legends should be included in the main article file (with consecutive numbering in Arabic numerals and signature "Fig.…", "Photo…", "Scheme…").

If any figures contain sub-sections (e.g. parts a, b, etc), these should be grouped together in one file. Any supplementary information should be combined and supplied as a single separate file.

When typing the following general rules must be observed:

– Put only one space between the words.

  Distinguish between dashes ( ) and hyphens (-). A hyphen is a sign that connects parts of complex words. When printed, it is marked with a small horizontal line (-) and is not separated by spaces from words. A dash is a punctuation mark used to indicate direct speech, pauses. The dashes in the text must be separated by spaces on both sides.

– Do not separate from the previous figure the sign of the degree, minute, second, percentage (25 °; 5 '; 30' '; 77%).

– It is necessary to separate characters and letters to denote volumes, parts, paragraphs, paragraphs, page numbers, etc. by a continuous space (simultaneously pressing Ctrl + Shift + Space), from the next digit (Vol. 7; Part 23; § 5; № 34; C. 2830); generally accepted designations of units of measurement from the previous figure (45 poods; 150 UAH; 32 km; 6 million; 45 thousand).

– It is necessary to separate the initials and surname with an inseparable space (V. Pichon); abbreviations after lists (type, etc., etc.), before names and surnames (Brad, V. Vynnychenko), before geographical names (Washington, Europe).

– Abbreviations such as 80's, 2nd must be printed with a hyphen (simultaneously pressing the keys Strl + Shift + Hyphen).

Quotation marks are used in the ” “  variant.

– The apostrophe should look like this: ’

– Arabic or Roman numerals are used according to tradition.

– Dates are given through dashes without spaces. In combinations of decades, dashes with spaces are placed between the dates: 40's – 50's, 1940's – 60's. Years that do not coincide with the calendar are given through a slash (1997/98 academic year; 2012/13 budget year).

Time and numerical intervals must be separated by dashes without spaces (July–August; 36–44).

– In digital data containing more than five digits, an inseparable space is placed after every three digits (13,255; 457,357; 46,532.5 kg.)

– Any clarifications, comments, selections, etc. made by the author, which are inserted into the citation, should be made according to the following template: [text. – Author].



Every article that contains statistical testing should state the name of the statistical test, the n value for each statistical analysis, the comparisons of interest, a justification for the use of that test (including, for example, a discussion of the normality of the data when the test is appropriate only for normal data), the alpha level for all tests, whether the tests were one-tailed or two-tailed, and the actual P value for each test (not merely ”significant“ or ”P < 0.05“). It should be clear what statistical test was used to generate every P value. Use of the word ”significant“ should always be accompanied by a P value; otherwise, use ”substantial“, ”considerable“ etc.
Datasets should be summarized with descriptive statistics, which should include the n value for each data set, a clearly labelled measure of centre (such as the mean or the median), and a clearly labelled measure of variability (such as standard deviation or range). Ranges are more appropriate than standard deviations or standard errors for small data sets. Graphs should include clearly labelled error bars. Authors must state whether a number that follows the ± sign is a standard error (s.e.m.) or a standard deviation (s.d.).
Authors must justify the use of a particular test and explain whether their data conform to the assumptions of the tests. Three errors are particularly common:

  • Multiple comparisons: When making multiple statistical comparisons on a single data set, authors should explain how they adjusted the alpha level to avoid an inflated Type I error rate, or they should select statistical tests appropriate for multiple groups (such as ANOVA rather than a series of t-tests);
  • Normal distribution: Many statistical tests require that the data be approximately normally distributed; when using these tests, authors should explain how they tested their data for normality. If the data do not meet the assumptions of the test, then a non-parametric alternative should be used instead;
  • Small sample size: When the sample size is small (less than about ten), authors should use tests appropriate to small samples or justify their use of large-sample tests.



Bibliographic reference is a set of bibliographic information about another document cited, considered or mentioned in the text, which is necessary and sufficient for its general characterization, identification and search.

All submissions should follow the journal's style of in-text parenthetical citations, followed by a complete list of works cited at the end of the paper. The journal does not permit numbered referencing. Authors should ensure that all references cited in the article text are included in a reference list at the end of the paper.

References will not be copy-edited prior to publication. All cited references will be linked electronically to external databases where possible, making correct formatting of the references essential. Incorrectly formatted references may result in errors or delays in the typesetting and publication process.

If the manuscript includes personal communications, authors should provide a written statement of permission (e-mail format, if permissible) from any person who is quoted, with their submission. The personal communication should be indicated by an endnote.

Please use the referencing style outlined: REFERENCES.

The bibliographic reference should contain the following elements:

– last name and initials of the author (authors);

– year of publication;
– title of the document;
– information related to the title (monograph, notes, collection, etc.);
– information on responsibility – information about individuals and organizations that participated in the creation of the described publication (compilers, editors-in-chief, translators, etc. are indicated);
– information about the publication – information about changes and features of this edition in relation to the previous edition of the same work (for example: 10th ed., Revised and supplemented);
– initial data (place, publisher, year of publication);
– information about the series (issue number, issue, volume);
– the pages to which the link is made or the total number of pages (with a link to the entire document).

The names of the authors should be highlighted in italics. The surname precedes the initials. An inseparable space must be placed between the initials and between the initials and the surname. The individual blocks of the bibliographic reference should be separated by a semicolon.

All bibliographic references must be submitted in the original language. In the case of repeated references to different works of one author, an abbreviated entry is used (author, the first two or three words of the title, three dots, dashes, page). Repeated references to a multivolume document should indicate the author, title, volume number (issue, book), page. If the re-reference is immediately after the original, its text is replaced by the words ”Ibid“, ”Ibid“ (depending on the language of the source to which they refer). In the repeated link to another page, the page number is added to the specified words. In the repeated reference to the work of one, two or three authors, which does not follow the original reference, the surname and initials of the authors, the words ”Op. cit.“ and pages.
Bibliographic references included in the complex reference are placed in alphabetical order and separated from each other by a semicolon. If the complex reference includes several references to the same author (authors), then in the second and subsequent references his surname and initials are replaced by ”His“, ”Her“, ”Their“.
The editorial board will not consider articles that do not meet the above requirements.
The Editorial Board has the right to edit and shorten the submitted materials. Unpublished articles, as well as electronic media and illustrations are not returned to the author.
The author is responsible for the content of the article, the accuracy of facts, quotations, dates etc.


The editors of the journal prefer to publish manuscripts that are checked for anti-plagiarism and reviewed by leading specialists.

They contain the results of innovative experimental research, which are relevant for the international community, contribute to the development of scientific, technical and social ecosystems and use various research methods.

The volume of manuscripts is no more than 1.5 author's sheets (1 author's sheet — 40,000 printed characters (including spaces between words, punctuation marks, numbers, etc.)). The minimum volume of manuscripts is 20,000 printed characters.

Innovative project

The section publishes innovative projects that correspond to the purpose of the magazine and are aimed at meeting the needs of the modern reader

Review article

Review articles provide a critical and constructive analysis of the existing literature in a particular field by summarizing, analyzing and comparing, often identifying specific gaps or problems and providing recommendations for future research. In general, review articles can be of three types: literature reviews, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses.

Narrative reviews or literature reviews can range in length from 8,000 to 40,000 words, while systematic reviews are usually under 10,000 words.

Clinical case

Clinical case studies provide details of real patient cases from medical or clinical practice. The described cases, as a rule, are those that significantly contribute to the improvement of knowledge in this field. The study is expected to discuss the signs, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

They are considered primary literature and usually have a word count similar to the original article. Clinical case studies require extensive hands-on experience and may not be an appropriate publication format for early career researchers.

Clinical research

Clinical research are specific studies in the field of medicine that describe the methodology, performance, and results of controlled studies, usually conducted with large groups of patients.
Clinical research articles are also long, usually about the same length as the original research article. Clinical research requires hands-on experience as well as high standards of ethics and reliability, so this format is more useful for experienced researchers.

Perspective article

Perspective articles are scholarly reviews of fundamental concepts or common ideas in a particular field. These are usually essays that present a personal point of view with a critique of common perceptions about the field. The perspective part can be an overview of a single concept or several related concepts. These are considered supplementary literature and are usually short articles (around 2000 words).


Opinion articles present the author's perspective on the interpretation, analysis, or methods used in a particular study. This allows the author to comment on the strengths and weaknesses of the theory or hypothesis. These articles are usually based on constructive criticism and should be supported by evidence. They contribute to the discussion of current problems of science. These are also relatively short articles.


Commentaries are short articles, usually around 1,000 to 1,500 words in length, that draw attention to or critique a previously published article, book, or report, explaining why they are of interest to them and how they can be enlightening to readers.

Book review

Book reviews are relatively short articles whose purpose is to justify an opinion about recently published scholarly books. Book reviews are a good publication option for early-career researchers, as they allow the researcher to stay abreast of new literature in the field while building their publication list.

The standard volume of a book review is about 3,600 characters.
