The list of references should include articles mainly published in the last 10–15 years in refereed journals as well as monographs and patents. It is recommended to avoid citing the author's abstracts of dissertations, methodical guides, works from collections of proceedings and conference abstracts. 

The article from the journal should be modeled as follows:

Surname, initials of the author. Article title // Journal title. 2001. Vol. 5, no. 7. P. 11-23.

Authors Name. Article Title // Journal Title. 2007. Vol. 5(7). P. 21–54.

If the article is authored by a group of more than 4 people, the first three authors are listed followed by "et al." If there are four authors, all names are listed.

The reference to a book should be made in the following way: the author's name (authors' names), the title of the work, the place of publication, the publishing house, the year of publication, the number of pages.

For collective monographs and collections, the name of the editor (names of editors) is added. The monograph, written by a team of authors (more than 4 people), is placed in the list by the title of the book.

Electronic publications which have a digital object identifier, or doi assigned by the international organization International DOI Foundation ( are described similarly to printed publications, indicating doi without a dot after it. In this case, the URL is not given, since doi allows one to uniquely identify an object in databases, unlike a network address that can change.

For example:

D'Addato A.V. Secular trends in twinning rates // J Biosocial Sci. 2007. Vol. 39 (1). P. 147–151. doi:10.1017/s0021932006001337 

If there is no such digital identifier, then the designation of materials for electronic resources should be indicated [Electronic resource].

The electronic address and the date of access of the document on the Internet are always given.

For example:

Belous NA Pragmatic realization of communicative strategies in the conflict discourse [Electronic resource] / / World of linguistics and communications: electron. scientific. journal. 2006. № 4.

URL: (дата обращения: 15.12.2007).  

Tables should be clear and compact and contain statistically processed materials. Tables should be created by the means of standard MS-Word or Excel. Each table should be spaced at 1.5 intervals on a separate page and numbered sequentially in the order of the first mention in the text. Each table should have a title and an ordinal number (above the table), corresponding to its mention in the text. Each column in the table should have a short title (one can use abbreviations, deciphered in footnotes). All explanations should be placed in footnotes. Statistical parameters that were used to represent the variability of the data should be indicated. As an alternative to tables with a large number of data the use of graphics is recommended. The name of the table and footnotes should be sufficient for understanding the information presented in the table without reading the text of the article.

Figures (color or black and white) should be included in the text as well as submitted as separate files. Figures should meet the following requirements: file extension *.tif, *.jpg, *png, *gif; resolution — not less than 300 dpi (pixels per inch); figure should be cut at the edges of the image; the width of the figure is from 70 to 140 mm, the height is no more than 200 mm.

Charts and graphs should be editable black and white or color. In histograms, it is permissible to alternate a solid fill and pattern (hatching, rhombs, etc.), in the charts well-distinguishable markers and dotted lines should be used. All digital data and signatures must be clearly distinguishable. Each figure should be accompanied by brief captions, which together with the designations given in the figure should be sufficient for understanding the information presented in the figure without reading the text of the article.

The author should save copies of all materials and documents submitted to the editor.

Articles not formatted according to the rules are not considered for publication.
