Articles format requirements
1. The article itself, the text alongside with drafts and other non-text elements must consist of 5...10 full pages of A4 format (210х297 mm) with 20 mm margins from each side. The manuscript of the article needs to be made with the help of the MS Word editor. Font is Times New Roman, 12 pt, style is ordinary. Line and paragraph spacing is single. Hyphenation is automatic. Alignment is done according to the page width, without page numbers.
2. The article structure (each element from a new line): UDC code; authors’ initials and family names, the scientific degree of the authors; name of the organization, the city, the country where the authors work; the title, the summary (no more than 300 symbols), keywords (from 3 to 5) and the article’s body; conclusions; the list of references.
If an author already registered oneself in the system Science Index and has the personal identification number of author (SPIN-code), then necessarily specify this code. Thus you will accelerate correct comparison of the article and author on a web-site "The Scientific e-library"(http://elibrary.ru/). Reference for registration in the system Science Index - http://elibrary.ru/author info.asp
UDC code can be defined independently by means of classifier, for example, http://pu.virmk.ru/doc/UDK/. Checking correctness of decoding of well-known UDC code is possible here - http://scs.viniti.ru/udc/Default.aspx
Problem that is decided in the article definition is briefly expounded in an annotation, and the got basic results over are brought. Reduction of words in text of annotation and article, pictures and tables is shut out.
