References are given in square brackets and numbered (beginning with N 1) in order of their appearance in the article. With several references appearing in sequence they should be placed in the chronological order. The aim of the study should be clearly formulated.
  • Objects and methods of researches.
    - for describing experimental work the section should contain a full description of the object of study, consecutive steps of the experiment, equipment, and reagents. The original names of equipment and reagents should be specified, and the manufacturer’s name (company, country) should be given in parentheses. If a method is not widely known or considerably modified, please provide a brief description in addition to the reference;
    - for presenting theoretical research the section should contain the tasks, approximations and assumptions, conclusions and solution of basic equations. The section should not be overloaded with intermediate data and the description of well-known methods (such as numerical methods of solving equations) unless the authors have introduced some novelty in them.
  • Results and discussion*.
    - the section should provide a concise description of experimental and / or theoretical data. Rather than repeating the data of tables and graphs, the text should seek to reveal the principles detected. It is recommended to use the past indefinite verb tense in describing the results. The discussion should not reiterate the results. This section should be completed with a major conclusion that answers the question specified in the introductory part of the article.
    * In case of surveys these sections do not need a title. The contents may present analytical survey of the problem chosen and give the widest reflection of existing points of view and data connected with the theme.
