General Requirements

The materials of the manuscripts should present new research results that have not been previously published and that are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.


• is responsible for the accuracy of the results of the study;

• assures that all authors, who took part in the preparation of the article, are mentioned;

• ensure that the copyrights of the third parties are not violated, that the text of the article has no improper or illegal borrowings.


Manuscript length and structure

Manuscript should be no longer than 10 pages with the following parameters, including figures, tables and references.

Pages of the manuscript should be numbered.

Structure of the article should reflect the logic of the research. Article should be arranged as follows: it should be divided into clearly defined sections. For example, the statement of the objectives of the work and adequate back-ground, experimental materials and methods, results of the research, discussion and conclusions.


To the Editor the Author should submit

a scanned copy of the manuscript, carefully read and signed by the author (one of the authors), as well as an electronic version of the manuscript saved in Word; the text of the article, abstract, keywords and information about the author (s); all these should be submitted as a single file. Materials must be prepared using the options of Microsoft Office 2003 (the text file extension *. Doc).

abstract and keywords in English and Russian languages;

information about the authors in Russian and English languages;

corresponding letter (resolution of the institution where the work was done) about the possibility of publishing an article in press (on a separate sheet) – one copy – only for researches made in Russia.


Structure of the article

1. Index on the Universal Decimal Classification (UDC);

2. In a line in the middle – the initials and name (s) of the author (s) (size 11, italic);

3. In a line in the middle – the article title (in capital letters, size 12, straight, bold);

4. Text of the article (size 11), which includes mandatory structural elements (see the structure of the article);

5. References (should be entitled – References).


Formatting and style of the manuscript

Paper Size: A4.

Orientation: Book.

Margins: top - 2.3 cm; bottom - 2.7 cm; inside - 2.4 cm; outside - 2.5 cm. From the edge to heading: top - 1.7 cm, bottom - 2.0 cm.

Type font: Times New Roman. Font Size: the size of the ground pin - 11; paragraph - 1 cm; line spacing - single.


• Not allowed: apply styles in the summary; make changes to the template, or create your own for the formation of the text; put spaces before punctuation marks; apply any discharge words;

• Necessary: to share words within a paragraph using a single space; to type without forced transfers; set auto-matic hyphenation (path: Tools → LANGUAGE submenu item hyphenation → tick the box that opens, "Skye automatic hyphenation ").


Drawings and photographs. It is allowed only black and white clear drawings made with the means of computer graphics. All the figures must be numbered ( Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc. ) and have caption . Figure number and figure caption should be placed below the figure. All the symbols, terms, position, size, etc. on the drawings and photographs should be given in the text or figure captions.

Drawings and photographs should be placed in the text after the paragraph that first mentions about them. Author is allowed to put pictures and photos on the next page after the link.

Links to all figures in the text are required. Width of the figure should not be larger than the bandwidth of the text. Point at the end of the caption is not assigned.


Table. Width of the table should not be larger than the bandwidth of typing. The name (heading) of the table is printed in bold 10 point size, text in a table - normal font point size 8. Tables should be placed in the text after the paragraph that first gives the reference to it. Author is allowed to put tables on the next page after the link.

Tables should not be bulky and duplicate the text and pictures. All tables should be numbered and should have headings. Point at the end of the heading is not assigned. Table references in the text are required.


If an article has one figure or one table, they are not numbered.

It is not allowed to finish the article (section, paragraph) with figures or tables.

All figures and tables should be placed in the center of the text set.


Formula. Only the most important formulas that have referenced in the text should be numbered. In formulas it is recommended to use MathType. For formulas, it is recommended to use the following font size: the main - 11; large index - 7; small index - 5; large symbol - 14; small symbol – 10, type print Times New Roman. For a set of mathematical formulas, it is recommended to use letters of the Latin alphabet (italics), the Greek alphabet (roman font) and Gothic (regular font). The indices of the formulas indicated in the Latin alphabet are printed in italic (mi - mass of the i-th element) and marked with the letters of the Russian alphabet - regular font (lp - length of the runway; Vpos - landing velocity). Abbreviations of physical quantities and units of measurement (kW, F/m, W/m) - regular font without points. Numbers and fractions in formulas should be typed in regular font. Regular font is used in typing some mathematical values (sin, tg; max, min; const.; log, det., exp., etc.). Vector quantities should be denoted in bold italics, and not with upper line above the symbol: e not ē. Hyphenation is possible for formulas first on the signs (= , " , <,> , etc.), in the second place - on elision marks (...), on the signs of addition and subtraction ( +, -), and the last – on the sign of multiplication in the form of an oblique cross (×). Hyphenation for the division sign is not allowed. Mathematical sign, which is broken when hyphening formula, must be repeated at the beginning of the second line. When hyphening formulas, expressions contained under the integral sign, the logarithm, addition, multiplication can not be separated from the actual characters. Short formulas, having no independent value, are typed in the lines of the text. The most important formulas, all the numbered formulas, as well as long and cumbersome formulas containing signs of summation, multiplication, etc., are typed in separate lines. Formulas are centered, their numbers in brackets - on the right. Individual elements of mathematical formulas given in the text are typed in accordance with the above mentioned rules (regular font in the formula - regular font in the text, italics in the formula - italics in the text).


Chemical symbols (Ag, Cu ) are typed in regular font. It is recommended to use Chem Window editor.


Physical units should be presented in accordance with the international SI system GOST 8.417-2002. GSI. Units of quantities.


All the abbreviations in the text must be transcribed. Only common abbreviations of names of measures of physical, chemical and mathematical values are allowed.



Links to all of the sources in the bibliography are required (in the text contained in the serial number of square brackets, for example [2], [4-7], [1, 18, 25]). If the text has a direct quote, enclosed in quotation marks, a page on which this citation is given in the cited source must be put. For example: [7. 28]. References to unpublished works and works that are in print, are not allowed.

The list includes only those works for which the author refers to in the text. Sources in the bibliography are numbered and arranged in order of their appearance in the text (in order of citation).

Length of an abstract should be about 200-250 words.

The abstract should reflect the structure and content of the article, the basic actual information and conclusions without further interpretation or criticism of the author. Text of the abstract should not contain the information that is not mentioned in the original document. The text of the abstract should not repeat information contained in the title. It is recommended to avoid unnecessary introductory phrases (e.g. "The author considers ...). The description of previously published works, the well-known statements, the information about the state of the problem, the relevance of the completed research should not be listed. Abstract should be written in one paragraph.
