The alternation of metadata on the cover page of the article depends on the language of the article: if the article is in Russian, first a block of Russian-language metadata is given; if the article is in English, the first is the English-language metadata. See sample article.

The Journal uses the Vancouver style of citing .

The article should contain no more than 30 sources in the list of references. When reflecting the results of their research, the authors should refer to the experience of Russian and foreign researchers, as reflected in publications included in the international databases Scopus and Web of Science. Most sources should have a year of publishing not older than 5 years. The analysis of current literature and recent research should not be limited to listing the theoretical information with the indication of their authors. The original article allows quoting no more than 3 works of each author.

In particular:

  • Intra-text bibliographic references are given in square brackets, where reference is made to the ordinal number of the used work in the reference list of literature and page - [40: 77]. If the link includes several used works, they are separated by brackets inside the square brackets. For example: [2: 38; 25: 80].
  • Textual bibliographic references are given after the text of the article under the general heading "Reference ". The references are numbered not alphabetically, but as they are mentioned in the text, regardless of the language in which the work was given;
  • The article may contain subscript bibliographic references (footnotes-notes): indications of archival sources, materials of collections and private collections, legal documents, as well as author's notes and comments. Unlike in-text references cited in square brackets, footnotes are placed at the bottom of the page and are made in computer mode: Insert-link-footnote.
  • In Reference, when referring to a book, it is necessary to specify the publisher. When referring to a multivolume edition, you must specify how many volumes and which volume the link is given. The reference to the periodical is given as follows: author. Article title // Journal title. Year. Tom (vol.). no. Interval of article pages.

REFERENCES should be in Vancouver format To describe the release date, volume and release of the periodical and the pages on which the source of the link is published, use the shortened record format (see examples below):
