Author Guidelines

Articles are accepted in English or Russian 

When writing an article, it is advisable to adhere to the EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles to be Published in English.

1. An article volume:

  • Full article — standard format for completed scientific articles, about 30,000-40,000 characters (Times New Roman, 12 pt), at least 15 references;
  • Review article/perspectives — a critical synthesis/generalization of a research topic, usually at least 30-40 references.

2. The material presented in the article should be clearly structured. Sentences generally should not be very long. Their structure should be relatively simple, with the subject located close to its verb (Gopen & Swan 1990). Recommended article structure: Title, List of authors, Abstract, List of keywords, List of abbreviations (if required by the editors), Introduction, Methods, Results, Practical Application, Discussion (possibly with further research areas), Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References.

An article structure may contain other elements, for example, a review of research, methodological support, algorithmic support, a mathematical model, assessment of model reliability, etc. (at the discretion of the author).

All sections of the article are about improving the quality of the publication to be presented for the scientific and professional community.

The article should formulate the goals and objectives of the study. All elements of the article should be logically connected and presented in a stylistically literate and understandable scientific language. Write CLEARLY to facilitate understanding – make the text readable. Sentences generally should not be very long. The text should be cohesive, logically organized, and thus easy to follow. Their structure should be relatively simple, with the subject located close to its verb (Gopen & Swan 1990). For example, avoid abstract nouns and write “X was measured…” instead of “Measurements of X were carried out…” (See Appendix: Simplicity) Do not overuse passive constructions (e.g. Norris 2011). Preferably delete obvious statements (e.g. “Forests are very important ecosystems”) and other redundant fragments (e.g. “It is well known that…”). The use of scientific methods in the study should be justified in the publication. If research methods are well known and were applied in similar studies, it is necessary to use corresponding links and avoid detailed description of the methods. Experimental studies should contain a description of the location, conditions, research tools, etc. When using specialized software, a corresponding reference should be presented.

The Study Results should be presented clearly and concisely. It is necessary to highlight the results novelty and their difference from those obtained earlier in similar studies.

Practical Application describes the usefulness of applying the study results in further research and in industry. It is desirable to indicate the actual or expected economic effect.

3. The article must necessarily include:

  • author's abstract;
  • keywords;
  • cited list of references.

4. 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 and structure of the article, as for most readers it will be the major source of information about your study. 

5. The abstract volume is governed by the article content, but should not be less than 1200-1500 characters (for Russian-language publications, a larger volume is preferable). You must use all 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).

6. Provide about 7-10 key words. The use of word combinations should be minimized.

7. References should include links to international research.

8. Referencing should follow the Vancouver reference style or the author–number system, in which a citation style uses numbers within the text that refer to numbered entries in the reference list.

9. Number the references (numbers in square brackets) in the list in the order in which they appear in the text. The use of aggregated links (eg [3-8]) should be justified by a detailed description of the sources.

10. The text part of the article should be written in a separate file in doc or docx format.

11. Formulas in the article shall be typed using the built-in Microsoft Word editor Microsoft Equation. The formulas should use the characters of the Latin and/or Greek alphabets.

12. Make figures and tables easily understandable without reference to the main body of the article. The figures/drawings should be clear and suitable for computer reproduction. Scan images should have at least 300 dpi resolution, and the image should not contain unnecessary elements. The use of scanned images in the form of curves, graphs, structural elements, etc. is undesirable or should be justified.

Drawings of technical objects should be created in graphic editors. As symbols in figures, numbers and/or the Latin alphabet characters should be used. All symbols in a figure should be separately described.

The photographs used in the article should be clear and described in the article.

Figures for the article shall be presented separately in one of the following formats: JPEG / GIF / PNG / TIFF / RAW / PSD.

13. System International (SI) units and Celsius degrees are generally preferred.

14. Clearly distinguish your original data and ideas from those of other people and from your earlier publications–provide citations whenever relevant. Preferably summarize or paraphrase text from other sources. In case of revealing signs of plagirism in a paper, presented by an author (considerable borrowings of text, drawings, and/or other information from other sources without indicating citation), the paper will not be edited/reviewed and can not be submitted repeatedly in any form.

15. Articles and elements of articles that are submitted in Russian should not be translated into English by the authors. The editors office performs the translation by its own efforts. The papers submitted to the Editorial Board in Russian may be translated into English by the Editorial Board. In this case, the final check with the author shall be carried out only with Russian version of the submitted paper.

No payment from the authors of scientific and technical articles, including graduate students, for the publication of their manuscripts on a first-come, first-served basis is charged.
