The style of references accepted in the journal will be applied to the accepted article at the proofreading (layout) stage. Please pay attention that at the proofreading (layout) stage missing information may be indicted for the author to add.
We place no strict requirements to formatting, though all manuscripts shall contain essential elements needed for their processing, e.g., an abstract, keywords, introduction, means and methods, results, conclusions, graphical elements and tables with captions.
Place make sure that the pages of your paper are numbered sequentially because this is an essential requirement for your paper to be reviewed by your peers.
Electronic graphical presentation. General provisions
Make sure that your original graphical presentation uses identical text styles of the same size.
Number the illustrations according to their order in the text.
Use a logical means of assigning names to your files with elements of graphics.
Please make sure that the figures and tables in one file are located opposite the respective text in the manuscript, and not in the beginning or end of the file.
Please insert mathematical equations in an editable format rather than as an image. Insert simple formulas in line with the body text if possible and use a slash symbol (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractions, e.g., Х/Y. In principle, variables should be in italics. Exponents are best to be indicated as exp. Number sequentially all equations, which are inserted separately from the body text (if the text has an explicit reference to such equations). Using software tools for processing the text
Please use as simple text formatting as possible. The majority of formatting codes will be replaced or deleted when the paper is processed. The electronic text should resemble a traditional manuscript as much as possible.
