1. Guide line for Submission and Publishing of Articles
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 consideration 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 are returned to the author (authors). Articles that have passed the verification of the uniqueness of the text are sent to the editorial board for review. 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.
To the article (with the author's signature) an expert conclusion is attached on the possibility of open publication.
Graduate students are required to provide the article review of the scientific advisor or doctorate of the corresponding specialty.
Article format. The article should be typed in a text editor Word (with the extension * .doc) (font – Times New Roman Cyr 14 pt, indentation – 0.5 cm, line spacing – one and a half, without hyphenation in words).

References. The text should contain links to information sources. Below the main text (or texts of notes), the title «References» is printed in the center 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.

Submitted by the author manuscript according to scientific research topics is sent for reviewing to the members of the editorial board in charge of this topic, and experts which are scientists 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.

– Assessment of readiness of the manuscript for publication in respect to the language and style, meeting the journal requirements;
– Scientific exposition used by the author matches methods, techniques, advice and research achievements of modern science and practice;
– The admissibility of the volume of the manuscript as a whole and its individual elements (text, tables, pictures, bibliographic references); the feasibility of space in the article tables, illustrations and their compliance with the stated theme; recommendations for reasonable reductions in manuscript (indicate by which element);
