Author Guidlines. Guideline for Reviewing Manuscripts
About the content. The article should contain only original material reflecting the results of the author's research not previously published
and not submitted to other publications.
On the review of the submitted materials. At the first stage all scientific articles undergo mandatory testing for borrowings. Articles containing
less than 70 % of the unique text and violating publishing requirements are returned to the author (authors). Articles that have passed
the verification of the uniqueness of the text and following the journal profile are sent for reviewing. The comments are transmitted
to the author (authors). After the finalization, the reviewers analyze the materials again, after which the decision for publication is made.
Article format. The article should be typed in a text editor Word (with the extension *.doc or *.docx) (font — Times New Roman Cyr 14 pt,
indentation — 0,5 cm, line spacing — one and a half without hyphenation in words). Print on paper in A4 format (210×297 mm). Pages should be
numbered with a pencil on the back. The volume of the article is 16–18 pages, including figures and tables (excluding annotations, keywords,
bibliographic list and information about authors); the text of the article should be at least 6–7 pages.

Header. In the upper left corner of the sheet the UDC is placed. Further, in the center, the title of the article is printed (the capital letter is only the first).
The title of the article can not be abbreviated. Below there are initials, the author's (authors') surname, the line below — the full name of the organization,
through the comma — country, city, street name, house number, postcode.
Below the line the text of the annotation and keywords in Russian are placed.
The abstract should reflect the main topic of the article, its relevance, purpose and objectives, as well as its results. In the annotation, the author (authors)
indicates that the work is new in comparison with others related to the topic and purpose. The recommended average annotation volume is over 500 characters.
Keywords — 6–8 words/phrases, which should reflect the specifics of the topic, the subject and the results of the research. It is necessary to avoid common
words and phrases. When selecting keywords, it is recommended to use terms and phrases used in the areas researched.
Next, the main text of the article is placed through the line.
The text of the article should be structured and contain the following sections: «Introduction», «Statement of the problem», «Theory», «Experimental results»,
«Discussion of experiments»,«Conclusions».
If there are notes in the text, after the main text, before the Source list, the title «Notes» is typed in the center and the text of the notes, numbered
in the form of an upper index (for example, 1) in the order of the references in the text, is placed through the line. The reference to the note in the main
text is bolded with a number in the form of an upper index (for example, ...models1). Automatic numbering of the notes is not allowed.
The «Introduction» section includes the relevance of the research topic, a review of the literature on the research topic (the initial hypotheses, if they exist),
the object of the study, the statement of the problem.
The Statement of the problem should follow from the results of the literature review and contain the formulated goal and a list of tasks to be solved.
The section «Theory» contains theoretical analysis and theoretical studies.
The sections «Results of experiments» and «Discussion of results» contain the actual results of the research (text, tables, graphs, diagrams, equations,
figures)and interpretation of the results of the research, respectively.
The section «Conclusions» contains brief summaries of the sections of the article without repeating the formulations given in them.
Formulas. Simple inline and single-line formulas that do not contain special characters (absent on the keyboard) must be typed with symbols from
the keyboard without using special editors. Single special characters that are not present on the keyboard, formulas containing special characters that
are not on the keyboard, and complex and multi-line formulas must be typed entirely in the Microsoft Equation 3.0 or MathType formula editor. It is not allowed
to type part of the formula with symbols, and parts in the formula editor. If in the text of the article the formulas are numbered, then this numbering
should be performed by a set of numbers. Automatic numbering is not allowed.
List of sources. Below the main text, the title «List of sources» is printed down the line and a numbered source list is placed through the line in the order
of the text references in accordance with the current editorial requirements for the bibliographic description. Only one source of information should be
indicated in one item of the list.
The text of the article should contain references to information sources (at least 15–20 sources):
— obligatory citation of modern works (the share of quoted publications published on the subject of the article is estimated over the past 5 years);

the current state of the problem in Russia and abroad);
— the share of links to the articles of the author (authors) published earlier should not exceed 20 % of the total number of references.
References to information sources are numbered sequentially, as far as they are mentioned in the text, and are denoted by numbers enclosed in square
brackets (for example, ). If the reference to the source of information in the article is mentioned repeatedly, then its number from the list is repeated
in square brackets (without using the next sequence number and the link «Ibid» in the Source list). In the case when they refer to different materials from
the same source, the page number is also indicated in square brackets each time, for example, [1, p. 17] or [1, p. 28–29].
Tables are placed on a new page after the Source list. The numbering of tables is made in the order of the references in the text. The numbering header
of the table is typed in a font with boldface, aligned to the left.

not exceed 3 MB. The use of graphics in MS Visio format, various CAD and other programs is not allowed. Figures should be clear. All positions in the figure
must be decoded and described. The legend of the figure should be easy to read, the font is not less than 8–9 pt. It is allowed, and in the case of illustrations
of a large volume (file), the placement of pictures in a separate electronic version file is welcome. The name of the figure is placed directly under the figure
and should not be included in the format of the figure.
No more than 8–10 figures are allowed.
On the last page indicate the following information about the author (authors): surname, name, patronymic; academic degree, academic title, position,

A separate page contains the English-language part of the article.

and specialists in this field of science (Dr., PhD). All reviewers are acknowledged experts on the subject of peer-reviewed material and have relative publications for the past three years.
Reviewers are notified that the manuscripts are the private property of the authors and are not subject to disclosure.
The journal uses double-blind peer review. The author of the manuscript provided a copy of the review, or a reasoned refusal, without a signature and the name,
