Guidelines for Manuscript Preparation

General Requirements

The electronic version of a manuscript should be submitted to the editorial board by e-mail or other means as indicated by the editorial board. Submission must include all files containing elements of an article (text, tables, and illustrations) in PDF and one of the following formats: DOC, DOCX, or RTF. TeX files should be submitted if a journal accepts manuscripts in TeX. Оriginal files of illustrations corresponding to the technical requirements should also be included. Recommendations for preparation of the manuscript text can be found here. Files and accompanying documents should be compressed in one archive (preferably a ZIP file). The manuscript files must take into account all peer reviewer notes and editor corrections.

The manuscript should contain the complete affiliation of each author, including country, city, zip code, and address for correspondence, as well as the e-mail address of the corresponding author. Since proofs are sent to authors only by e-mail, it is recommended that additional backup e-mail addresses be included. If a manuscript has several authors, it is recommended that the e-mail addresses of more than one author be included, and that these addresses be checked regularly.

When submitting a manuscript to a Russian-language journal, please consult the guidelines for authors of the particular journal.

Should you have any questions, please contact the editorial board. If you do not receive a reply, please use our web-based feedback form.
