In the text of the abstract should be used the syntactic structures inherent in the language of scientific and technical documents, avoid complex grammatical constructions. The text of the abstract should be laconic, clear, with persuasive phrases, lack of background information. Depending on the selected section of the journal, there are:
3.1. Structured abstract (1500-2000 characters):
- The aim of the research.Text.
The subject, purpose of the work are indicated.
- Materials and methods. Text.
The method or methodology of the work in terms of novelty is described.
- Results. Text.
Described extremely accurately and informatively. The main theoretical and experimental results, actual data, discovered relationships and regularities are presented. At the same time, preference is given to new results, important discoveries, conclusions that refute existing theories, as well as data of practical importance.
- Conclusion. Text.
Can be accompanied by recommendations, estimates, suggestions, hypotheses, described in the article.
The names of the abstract sections are written from a new line without indentation in semi-bold, italic 12 pt, at the end a dot is put. The abstract should contain only those sections that are described in the Rules for authors. For example, the section "Actuality" does not appear in the abstract. The authors prescribe the actuality of their work in the introductory section of the manuscript.
3.2 Unstructured abstract (400-800 characters depending on the section - see "Selecting a section"):

4. Keywords contain 6-8 words and phrases, express the main semantic content of the article, serve as a guide for the reader. Are posted after the abstract, in Russian and English. Should reflect the discipline (the field of science, within the framework of which the article is written), the topic, the purpose, the object of research.
When publishing keywords through the site, you must select the "Keywords" option, write words / phrases separated by commas.
5. The text of the article. The structure of the original scientific article (the text of the remaining sections may not be structured):
Introduction- sets goals and objectives, gives a critical assessment of literature.
Materials and methods - a detailed description of the work.
Discussion and results - an explanation of the results is given and their significance is shown.
Conclusion - the main conclusions are drawn.

The text is printed on an A4 sheet, the font size is 12 pt, the interval between the lines is 1.5, the margins are 2 cm from all sides.
When processing material, the system of SI units is used, the % character is put in a space from the number, the value of p is written with a comma: p <0,0001; the value of n is written with a small letter (n = 20); signs>, <, ±, =, +, - with numerical values are written without a space; the meaning of "year" or "years" is drawn up - 2014 or 2002-2014.

Statistical methods are described in detail in the section '' Materials and Methods ''.
Mathematical equations should be represented as editable text, and not as images.
Simple formulas should be written to a string in plain text, where possible, using the slash (/) character, instead of a horizontal line for small fractional expressions, for example, X / Y. Variables should be expressed in italics. The powers of e are better denoted as exp. Equations located separately from the text (if this is clearly indicated in the text) should be numbered in order. The formulas are centered. The number is indicated on the right side of the sheet (in parentheses). The upper and lower symbols must be clearly legible. In formulas, fractional numbers, there should be a comma, and not a point (for example, 0,5). Formulas must be typed in the built-in formula editor MS Word (Equation 3.0) or in the editor Math Type 4.0.
Making graphs, schemes, tables and figures
It should be formatted as editable text, and not as images. For each table, a reference should be provided next to the corresponding text in the article.
The tables should be illustrative, corresponding to the content of the graph. All figures, total and percent data in the tables are to be carefully verified by the author and should match the figures in the text.

The dimensions of the indicators and the form of the data representation (M ± m; M ± SD; Me; Mo; percents, etc.) should be clearly indicated in the tables. All figures, totals and percentages must be carefully verified, and also correspond to their mention in the text.
Explanatory notes are provided below the table if necessary.
The footnotes should be listed in the following order: *, †, §, ||, ¶, #, **, ††, etc. Abbreviations should be listed in the footnote below the table in alphabetical order.

If a reference to a drawing or table is included in the sentence, the full spelling of the word is used - '' figure 1 '', '' table 1 ''; if the words are enclosed in parentheses, a reduction is used - (Fig. 1), (Tab. 1).
Drawings (photographs, graphs, diagrams, schemes, draughts and other illustrations) should be clear, in black and white format. Each image is presented in a separate file. For each of the drawings, a reference is required in the text.

- scanned image should be cut by the edges of the image and should be cleaned from dust and scratches.
The names of the graphs and drawings
, as well as notes to them, should be placed under the drawing / graph (in the form of editable text, not the picture) or they should be placed in a separate file.
These files are indicated as additional files. Figures should not repeat the materials of the tables.
Times New Roman font should be used in the image.
The images in the text should be numbered sequentially.
