When publishing an article, part or all of the information must be duplicated in English or transliterated (written in Latin letters). It is recommended that the BSI standard (British Standard Institute, UK) is used for transliteration. To transliterate text according to the BSI standard, you can use the resource at


They should be placed in the text of the article, they should have a numbered title and clearly marked columns easy to read and understand. These tables should correspond to the figures in the text, but should not duplicate the information of the text. References to tables in the text are mandatory.

Each table in the text, together with a numbered title, should be given twice - in Russian and English versions. First, the Russian-language version of the numbered title and table should be given. After that, the English version of the numbered heading and table should be placed, the heading number and data in the table (but not the text!) should coincide. When creating the English version of the table and the heading, do not use transliteration - you should give a full translation into English. The text of the English version of the table heading may not coincide exactly with the text of the Russian version, especially in those cases when it is advisable to give additional explanations of the table content in the heading.


Table 1. Analysis of publication activity


Reduce graphical material to minimum (unless the nature of your study dictates otherwise). Each figure must be accompanied by a numbered heading. References to figures in the text are mandatory.

The numbered heading should be given twice - in Russian and in English. Both headings should be placed below the image, the English version of the heading should follow the Russian version. The English version of the heading may, if necessary, contain a more detailed explanation of the illustrated data. Example:

Fig.1. Dynamics of indicators of the processes under study

If there is any text in the image (for example, in textual schemes), in addition to the original figure, a copy of its English version containing all Russian-language text should be inserted into the manuscript. If the image has few text elements (e.g., only units of measurement and axes headings), it is acceptable not to make a separate English-language copy of it, but to duplicate the text in English on the original image.

  • Illustrations (graphs, diagrams, schemes, drawings) drawn with MS Office tools should be contrasting and clear. Illustrations should be made in a separate file and saved as an image (in *.jpeg, *.bmp, *.gif format), and then placed in the manuscript file as a fixed figure. It is unacceptable to put any elements (arrows, headings) over the figure inserted in the manuscript file due to the risk of their loss at the stages of editing and layout.
  • Photographs, screenshots and other non-drawn illustrations should not only be inserted in the text of the manuscript, but also uploaded separately in a special section of the article submission form as *.jpeg, *.bmp, *.gif files (*.doc and *.docx in case of additional markings on the image). The resolution of the image should be >300 dpi. The image files should be given a name corresponding to the number of the figure in the text. In the description of the file the heading under the figure should be given separately. The heading should correspond to the heading of the figure, placed in the text. Example:

Fig. 1. Sechenov Ivan Mikhailovich.

If the manuscript contains figures previously published in other publications (even if their elements have been translated from foreign into Russian), the author must provide to the editorial board the permission of the copyright holder to publish this image in another journal (with the correct indication of the corresponding journal), otherwise it will be considered plagiarism (see "Ethical principles"). The source has to be indicated in the heading.


All abbreviations and symbols must be explained in the notes on the tables and figure headings, indicating the used statistical criteria (methods) and parameters of statistical variability (standard deviation, standard error of the mean, etc.). Statistical validity / unreliability of differences in the data presented in the tables is recommended to denote with superscript characters *, **, †, †††, ‡, ‡‡, etc.


To publish the results of experimental research involving humans, it is necessary to indicate whether the research participants signed an informed consent. It is necessary to indicate whether the research protocol was approved by the ethics committee (giving the name of the relevant organization, its location, the protocol number and the date of the committee meeting). For details on the principles of publication ethics that guide the journal's editorial board, see the section "Ethical Principles".


When submitting a manuscript to the editorial board, please, upload files containing scanned images of the completed and certified accompanying documents (in *.pdf or *.jpg format). Sample Cover Letter.

Required documents include a cover letter signed by all authors of the article (or several letters together containing the signatures of all authors of the manuscript).
