Structure, content and scope of the author's summary (annotations)
The author's summary should set out the essential facts of the work and should not exaggerate or contain material that is not in the article.
The structure of the abstract, which follows the structure of the article and includes an introduction, goals and objectives, methods, results, conclusion(s) is welcomed. However, the subject matter, topic and purpose of the work shall be indicated if they are not clear from the title of the article. The information contained in the title of the article should not be repeated in the text of the author's summary.
Superfluous introductory phrases (e.g., "the author of the article considers...") should be avoided. Syntactic constructions typical for the language of scientific and technical documents should be used in the text of the Author's Summary, and complex grammatical constructions should be avoided.
The text of the author's abstract should be concise and readable, free from secondary information, unnecessary introductory words, general and insignificant formulations. The text should be coherent, the disparate provisions set out should follow logically from one another.
The length of the text in the author's summary is determined by the content of the publication (volume of information, its scientific value and/or practical significance) (approximately 100-150 words).
- Keywords (5-7 words) - are separated from each other by a semicolon.
- Notes (footnotes). Notes are indicated at the bottom of the page on which the text to which they relate. Notes may contain less important details, additional explanations, but cannot be a substitute for the cited literature.
- Requirements for illustrations: The illustrations shall be presented in real size. For raster files, the resolution is 300 dpi (CMYK, Grayscale) and 1200 dpi for bitmap. If the illustration is placed on a whole strip, its size should be at least 2717 x 3378 pixels (230 x 286 mm). When scanning photos, you should set the resolution to 600 dpi. Illustrations can be in formats: EPS, TIFF, PSD, JPG, PDF. For graphics (drawings), preferably pdf, eps or ai (illustrator). All fonts should be translated into curves. Color model: CMYK, Grayscale, bitmap. The captions for the illustrations should be given in the text document, not in the file names. If the picture contains text, for example, an explication, it is desirable to send the text as a separate file. If the images are taken from the Internet, and the author wants to indicate the Internet source in the signature, then this source should be short (or only the main site should be indicated, or special services should be used to shorten links).
- Those who wish can also make a translation of information about the author, title, annotation, keywords into English.
- Literature. The list of literature is drawn up in accordance with GOST R 7.0.100-2018:
In the text the references are numbered in square brackets, the number indicates the source in the literature list. It is recommended to use no more than 14 literature sources in the article. It is prohibited to include any literature that is not referenced in the text into the list of used sources (the number of references must coincide with the number of sources).
The list of used sources is drawn up in the order of references in the text (not in alphabetical order). Each source is assigned a number corresponding to the number of references to it in the text. It is obligatory to indicate the place, publisher, year of publication, number of pages in the publication and pages to which reference is made.
The list of literature in Russian should be fully duplicated in English in a separate block, in alphabetical order, regardless of whether there are foreign sources in it or not. If there are references to foreign publications in the list, they are fully repeated in the list prepared in the Roman alphabet.
To form the list of literature (all references without exception) in English, one should use one of the accepted foreign bibliographic standards - APA (American Psychological Association).
The following structure of bibliographic reference is used for Russian-language articles from journals, collections, conferences:
Authors (transliteration), title of the article in transliterated version, translation of the title of the article into English (in square brackets), source name (transliteration), output data with designations in English or only digital.
Example of a reference to a Russian-language book:
Treyvish, A.I. (2009). Gorod, raion, strana i mir. Razvitiye Rossii glazami stranoveda [City, Region, Country and the World. The Development of Russia through the Eyes of the Country Studies Specialist]. Moscow: Novyi khronograf.
