Introduction: explain why the study was needed and specify your research objectives or the question(s) you aimed to answer. • Methods: describe in detail how the study was carried out (eg study area, data collection, criteria, origin of analysed material, sample size, etc. • Results: present the new results of your study (usually published data should not be included in this section). • Discussion: answer your research questions (stated at the end of the Introduction) and compare your main results with published data, as objectively as possible.
1. The text of the article is entered in the text editor Microsoft Word and saved in the docx format.
2. The volume of the article is not less than 18–25 pages.
3. The article must contain the following elements:
• information about the author (s);
•abstract (250 words);
• 5-10 keywords;
•in-text citations, formatted according to the list of references in square brackets.
Abstract: briefly explain why you conducted the study (BACKGROUND), what question(s) you aimed to answer (OBJECTIVES), how you performed the study (METHODS), what you found (RESULTS: major data, relationships), and your interpretation and main consequences of your findings (CONCLUSIONS). The abstract must reflect the content of the article, as for most readers it will be the major source of information about your study. You must use keywords within the abstract, to facilitate on-line searching for your article by those who may be interested in your results (many databases include only titles and abstracts). In a research report, the abstract should be informative, including actual results. Only in reviews and other wide scope articles, should the abstract be indicative, ie listing the major topics discussed but not giving outcomes. Make sure that all the information given in the abstract also appears in the main body of the article.
Keywords: include all relevant scientific terms. Keep the keywords specific. Add more general terms if your study has interdisciplinary significance. Up to 10 terms, singular, separated with commas; lowercase except proper names; avoid abbreviations.
Reference list citations
1. The reference list is ordered numerically according to the order of the citations in a work. When re-citing a source, it is assigned the original citation number.
2. Citations in the text are given in square brackets indicating the number of the source according to the reference list and the page of the quoted fragment, for example: [5, p. 115].
3. In an original scientific article, it is necessary to mention at least 35–40 attributed sources, in a scientific review — 70–80. The editorial board recommends citing articles from journals that are indexed in international databases (Scopus, Web of Science).
4. Electronic resources, in which the author of the material is not indicated, statistical collections, regulatory legal acts are placed in footnotes and are not included in the list of used literature.
5. The rate of self-citation should not exceed 20% of the total number of references.
