The full text (in Russian or English) must be structured by sections. The structure of the full text of the manuscript must comply with international standard IMRAD and contain sections:

Introduction. Description of the research object, relevance of the research, review of world literature, confirming the absence of a solution to this problem in the literature sources and indicating the predecessors on whose research the work is based. The purpose of the study and the list of tasks to be solved are formulated.

Methods. This section describes the selected research method in detail. The method is defined so that other researchers can replicate it and get similar results.

Results and Discussion. This section includes analysis of the results obtained, their interpretation, and comparison with the results of other authors with references to their publications.

Conclusions. The results of the research are summarized. The conclusion contains numbered conclusions that formulate the main scientific results of the study. Conclusions should logically correspond to the tasks set at the beginning of the article.

References. The list of references should include at least 25 scientific publications available to a wide range of Russian and English-speaking readers.

- Scientific publications indexed by Scopus (Q1, Q2) or Web of Science databases. There must be at least 10 such publications.

- Scientific publications with open access in English in peer-reviewed scientific sources.

It is not recommended to cite dissertations, interstate and state regulatory documents, standards, instructions, textbooks, manuals, lecture notes and other educational literature in the article.

- It is necessary that the sources are up-to-date. We recommend that you have at least 8 articles from scientific journals no older than 10 years in the list of references, 6 of them – no older than 3 years.

- The literature review should confirm that there is no solution to the problem in the world literature. The recommended volume is at least half of the total number of sources in the list of references. Foreign sources are publications published in a foreign journal.

The list of references should be numbered - each source should be placed on a new line in numerical order. The numbering of references in the reference list must correspond to references in the text, where they should be put in square brackets in Arabic numerals. In the list of references, all works are listed in citation order, NOT in alphabetical order.

The following are the principle points you should be aware of while preparing your manuscript for submission:

References should be numbered in the order in which they are cited.

Number of references is limited to 60 for literature reviews, and to 20 for original studies and lectures.

Within the body of the text references should be provided in Arabic numerals enclosed in square brackets.
