The article should contain sections such as Abstract, Introduction, Results, Discussion and Conclusion.
Each heading should appear on its own separate line:
A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords. Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
State the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background, avoiding a detailed literature survey or a summary of the results.
Material and Methods:
Provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described.
Theory / Calculation:
A Theory section should extend, not repeat, the background to the article already dealt with in the Introduction and lay the foundation for further work. In contrast, a Calculation section represents a practical development from a theoretical basis.
Results should be clear and concise.
This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
Should be formatted in accordance with APA requirements, it is necessary to refer only to those publications that are indexed in international databases; use the international standard notation for units of measurement and quantities, as the decimal delimiter, use a period (eg., 0.002); the bibliography should be no more than 2 references to the works of authors. http://www.easybib.com/reference/guide/apa/journal
The journal will consider the following article types:
Research articles should present the results of an original research study. These manuscripts should describe how the research project was conducted and provide a thorough analysis of the results of the project. Systematic reviews may be submitted as research articles.
A review article provides an overview of the published literature in a particular subject area.

The copyright to the articles after their publication remains with the founder and publisher of the journal. All Open Access articles are distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited.
The use of generic descriptive names, brand names, trademarks in articles, even if they are not specifically installed, does not mean that these names are not protected by relevant laws and regulations. The authors of the articles are responsible for obtaining the permissions necessary for the reuse of copyrighted material.
Although the recommendations and information in the journal are true and accurate on the date of its release, neither the authors, nor the editors, nor the publisher can bear any legal responsibility for any errors or omissions that may be made. The publisher makes no warranties, express or implied, regarding the materials used in the articles.
Conflicts of Interest:
Conflict of interest (also known as competing interests) occurs when problems that are not related to research can reasonably be perceived as affecting the neutrality or objectivity of the work or its evaluation. Authors must declare all of their potential interests, regardless of whether they really had influence or not. Each author in the “conflict of interest” section should explain why his scientific interest in this issue may cause a conflict. If there are none, authors should declare: “The author declares that there is no conflict of interest regarding the publication of a specific article.” Authors who submit materials are responsible for co-authors who declare their interests. Declared conflicts of interest will be reviewed by the editor and reviewers and included in the published article.
Authors must declare current or recent funding (including for Article Processing Charges) and other payments, goods or services that might influence the work. All funding, whether a conflict or not, must be declared in the “Funding Statement”.
Authors must state how the research and publication of their article was funded, by naming financially supporting body(s) (written out in full) followed by associated grant number(s) in square brackets (if applicable).
If the research did not receive specific funding, but was performed as part of the employment of the authors, please name this employer. If the funder was involved in the manuscript writing, editing, approval, or decision to publish, please declare this.
All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the manuscript before the references. Anyone who made a contribution to the research or manuscript, but who is not a listed author, should be acknowledged (with their permission).
The Procedure for Reviewing Manuscripts:
The article will be reviewed for possible publication, provided that it has not been published anywhere, has not been submitted or has already been accepted for publication in another journal. The journal expects the authors to allow one of them (the corresponding author) to correspond with the journal on all issues related to the correction of the article. The journal accepts articles in Russian and English. Perfect stylish English is not required, but the language must be clear and unambiguous. All received articles are considered in the prescribed manner.
When submitting an article, the editor first checks all received scientific papers. Articles with insufficient originality, serious scientific and technical deficiencies or lack of content, if they are not prepared in accordance with the instructions of the journal, are rejected prior to their official viewing. Articles that are unlikely to be of interest to the scientific community may also be rejected at this stage.
Articles are sent for review. Each article is reviewed by the journal editor, who makes the final decision based on the comments of the reviewers. Comments and suggestions from reviewers are sent to the author. If necessary, the author must respond to the comments of the reviewer and submit a revised version of his article. This process is repeated until reviewers and editors agree to publish the manuscript.
Manuscripts accepted for publication are checked for grammar, punctuation and format. The article template is sent to the author. The author must return the corrected article within two days.
If the editor recommends rejecting the article, the refusal occurs immediately. In addition, if most reviewers recommend rejecting the article, the rejection occurs immediately. The editorial process gives editors the right to reject any work due to inconsistency of its content, poor quality or inaccuracy of its results.
The editor cannot nominate himself as an external reviewer of the article. This should ensure high quality, integrity and impartiality of the review process of each article submitted to the journal, since any article should be recommended by one or several (usually two or more) external reviewers together with the editor responsible for publishing the article to the journal.
The review process is blind, that is, the reviewers do not know who the authors of the work are, and the authors do not have access to information about who the reviewers are.
The review process should provide all authors with equal opportunities to publish their work.
