The following information will assist you in submitting an article:

Since 2009 the journal has been indexed in Russian Science Citation Index. Due to the preparation of the journal for inclusion in foreign bibliographic databases, carefully review the guidelines for the preparation of articles for publication.

Author’s names.

 The names of the authors of articles must be presented in both Russian and English languages.

Translated names of authors should be implemented in one of the standard international system of transliteration: "simple system", Library of Congress system, the system of Board of Geographic Names (BGN), system of the U.S. State Department. The authors must take note on following the right spelling of their last name and initials in English. Arbitrary choice of transliteration (or edited by the author himself) will inevitably lead to a variety of options of the name of one author, and as a result it will make unfeasible the process of identification and consolidation of data on its publications and citation in bibliographic databases. On the website  http://www.translit.ru/ you can find free application for transliteration of the Russian text into Latin.

Name of organization and department.

• The Name of the organization must be without abbreviations in both the Russian and English languages.

• All relevant words in the title of the organization (except for articles and prepositions) must begin with a capital letter

Organization name is used to identify the authors to create their profiles and profiles of organizations in the databases. The information about publications of particular authors related to specific organizations around the world is used to obtain complete information about the scientific activities of the organizations (and country as a whole). Organization profile in the database usually includes a large list of information: the address of the organization, the amount of publications, number of authors, all related articles, a list of sources (magazines) where author’s from affiliated organizations has been published, the subject of publications and organizations which authors cooperate with.

The authors must correctly specify the name of the organization in the Russian and English languages. The editors don’t transliterate and translate the name of the organization, so it will be published “as is”. Using different versions for the translation of organization names and different transliteration systems leads to loss of items in the profile of the organization and the author in different databases.
Using an official name of the organization with no cuts in Russian and English languages in the article will allow the most accurate identification of author’s affiliations. The exception is untranslatable into English brand names. These names must be given in the transliterated version.


Title of the article

• The title of the article must be presented in Russian and English languages
• All relevant words in the title (except for articles and prepositions) must begin with a capital letter
• The title of a scientific article should be informative, i.e., clearly reflect its contents in a few words
• Author’s must apply simple structures to the article’s names.
• It is recommended to use keywords in the title
• Using the untranslatable slang known only to the Russian-speaking professionals is strictly prohibited. This statement also applies to abstracts and keywords.
• Title of the article should not contain mathematical and chemical formulas, letters of the alphabets other than Latin and Russian, Roman numerals
• Only standard abbreviations can be used in the title
• When the article is ready authors must check that the title fully corresponds to its contents.
• In the translation of the article should not be any transliterations from Russian language except for untranslatable proper names, instruments, and other objects that have their own names

Abstracts

• Abstract of article must be both Russian and English languages

• Abstract performs the following functions: 
- Allows to set the main content of the article, determine its relevance and decide whether to refer to the full text of the article
- Gives an information about the article
- Can be used in information search engines including automated to search for articles and other types of requested information

• Abstract must be:
- informative (without common words)
- authentic
- meaningful (reflect the main content of the article and research results)
- structured (follow the logic for description of the results in the article)
- compact (volume of 100 to 250 words)

It’s very important! Usually abstract in English in the Russian-language publication for foreign scientists and different specialists is the only source of information considering the content of the article or result of researches. Foreign experts estimate the publication by abstracts, determine their interest in the work of the author, can use it in their publications and make a reference, they also can open a discussion with the author, ask the full text, etc. The volume of abstract in English on the Russian-language article can be more than abstract in Russian, as the Russian-language annotation is followed by the full text in the same language.

General recommendations:

• The information contained in the title, should not be repeated in the abstract. Avoid unnecessary introductory phrases (e.g., "the author of the article analyzes the ..."), historical references, descriptions of previously published and well-known positions.
• One of the choices of presenting an abstract is a recapitulation of structure of the article, including the introduction, aims and objectives, methods, results, conclusion
• You have to use peculiar syntax structures appropriate for scientific and technical papers and avoid complex grammatical structures
• Generally accepted technical terminology should be used in translation process
• In abstracts you must use relevant words from the text of the article. Abbreviations and symbols except the widespread ones are used in exceptional cases only, or you can give their definitions at the first use
• Physical units should be provided in the International System of Units. If you use different system of units, you can place it after SI value in parenthesis.
• In the abstract you should not provide links to the publication number in the list of references to the article

Keywords:

• Keywords for the article must be both English and Russian languages
• Maximum number of keywords per article should not exceed ten
• Use only standard abbreviations
The keywords should clearly indicate the main content of the article. Try to avoid using as a keyword such general terms as "system", in this case search engine does not lead the reader to the required information. In some cases the keyword may be used in a phrase form, but never in a form of even a short sentence.


General recommendations for submitting an article:

• You should always use structured approach in writing an article. Article must have an introduction containing summary review of formulating the problem. The main part have to include several internal partitions and contain a formal statement of the problem and the proposed solution method. There must be difference from the already known problem statements. You must emphasize on advantages of developing method for problem solution. It will be also necessary to put a good example of practical use confirming the operability and effectiveness of the proposed solutions. In the end of the article preferably to give recommendations on practical using of the findings. 
• Units of physical quantities should be included in the International System of Units (SI). It is possible to deal with the units permitted alongside SI units, as well as multiples and submultiples. 
• Figure captions should explain their meaning, thus the presented data can be clearly understood without reference to the whole text. The abbreviation should stand in the figure captions, if it was not made in the text.
• Formulas, lettering, numbers, signs and their location must be clear and distinct. All letters must be printed in italic, Russian and Greek - straight.
With best regards, editorial office.
