The Journal considers only new, previously unpublished manuscripts: 27-54k characters for articles.
Manuscripts should be submitted via official email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Supported are .doc, .docx, .rtf files. The manuscript should include:
1. Authors’ first and last names; Identifying information for all authors that includes an email address, place of employment, position, academic degree, city and country;
2. An article title (that should be concise and descriptive);
3. An abstract not to exceed 100 words;
4. Keywords or phrases (no less than five);
The manuscript must include an abstract of 100-250 words. The abstract should provide a very concise descriptive summary of the research stream to which the manuscript contributes, the specific research topic it addresses, the research strategy employed for analysis, the results obtained from the analysis, and the implications of the findings.
The manuscript should have a bibliography. Each source from it must have a reference in the text. Absence of a bibliography can be a reason for rejecting registration of the manuscript.
Please note that it’s better to avoid citing such sources as Ph.D. thesis abstracts and conference reports abstracts. Full-fledged research materials should be cited and included in the bibliography. Bibliography should include monographs, collections of scientific materials, articles in academic journals, scientific and analytical reports. Other sources, such as information, reference, encyclopedia, government and other sources, including Internet resources, which are not scientific and analytical materials, are quoted in footnotes. Should some links for WEB-sources fail to provide direct access to the source, they can be deleted from the article.
References to academic literature, analytical reports and articles in academic journals should be given as in-text bibliographic references which include the authors’ last names, year of publication and page numbers. If no authors are given in the bibliography, in-text reference for such work should include its title (a long one can be separated by elision marks); after-text bibliography should contain full titles:
