For the article file use the format *.doc. In the file's name do not Russian letters and gaps.

The article file is to identical to the printed original, submitted to the editorial board.

The article textual file has to include the head of the article, an abstract, a structured text, references. The diagrams, tables, structural chemical formulae are placed in the article text.

The articles are accepted in the text editor Microsoft Word using the font Times New Roman – for texts, Symbol for Greek letters, MathematicalPi2 – for handwritten and gothic symbols. The standard font size is 10.

For making up tables use Word (Table – Add Table) or MS Excel.

Recommendations for preparing an annotation

Abstracts should be informative (not contain common words), content (reflecting the main content of the article and the results of research), structured (follow the logic description of the results in the paper), compact (200 to 250 words). Abstract should not be divided into paragraphs.

The abstract should include the following aspects: objective, subject and methods, purpose of work, results, and conclusion.

The title of the article should not be repeated in the beginning.

Location of research should be indicated up to region.

The research method or methodology needs to be described effectively if it is markedly different because of its novelty or if it is interesting in relation to this particular research. In abstracts of papers describing experimental research, indicate the sources of the data and the nature of their treatment.

Research findings should be extremely accurate and informative. Applicants should include the fundamental theoretical and experimental results, actual data, observed relationships and patterns. Preference will be given to new research and data with long-term significance, important discoveries, findings that contradict existing theories, as well as data that, according to the author, are of practical importance.

Conclusions can be accompanied by recommendations, evaluations, suggestions, and hypotheses described in the article.

The information contained in the title, should not be repeated in the text of abstract (summary). Avoid unnecessary introductory phrases (e.g., "the author examines the ...").

Historical information should not be presented, unless they do not constitute the main content of the document, a description of previously published and well-known position in the abstract (summary).

In the body of abstract (summary) applicants should use syntactic constructs inherent in language of scientific and technical documents and avoid complex grammatical constructions.

In the text of abstract (summary) applicants should use relevant words from the text of the article.

Recommendations for typewriting formulas

Mathematical equations forming a separate line should be printed in the MathType formula editor as a whole.

It is not allowed to combine a table, a text and an inserted frame within the same unit. For the equations printed in the MathType it is necessary to keep to the standard style of symbols and indices, their size and placing. Forced manual changing of individual symbols and formula elements is not allowable!


They are separated from the figure with a gap (100 кPа, 77 К, 10.34(2) A), except degrees, per cent, permille: 90°, 20°C, 50%, 10‰. Fraction dimensions : 58 J/mol, 50 m/с2.

For complex dimensions it is allowed to use both negative degrees and parentheses (J/ mol-1 К-1), { J/ (mol К) or J(mol К)-1}, if it makes reading easier. The main requirement is unified character of dimensions writing.

While enumerating and giving numerical gaps, dimension is set for the last number (18-20 J/mol), with the exception of angular degree.

For Celsius degrees: 5°C, not 5°. Angular degrees are not omitted: 5°-10°, not 5-10°.

Dimensions for variables are written with a comma (E, kJ/mol), for logarithms – in square brackets without a comma: ln t [min].

Gaps between words

References for diagrams and tables are typed with gaps (fig. 1, tab. 2).

Inverted commas and brackets are not separated with gaps from the included words: (at 300 К), (а); not ( at 300 К ), ( а ).

There should be a gap between № or § sign: (№ 1; § 5.65), but no gap in numbers with letters: (IVd; 1.3.14a; fig. 1d).

In geographical names there is a gap after the point.: р. Енисей, г. Новосибирск.

References to cited works

Initials are put after authors' and editors' names and not divided with gaps: Иванов А.А., Petrov B.B.

The year, volume, number, etc. and divided from one another and from the figures with gaps: 1992. Т. 29. № 2. С. 213.or 1992. V. 29. № 2. P. 213.

To refer to the issue number of both Russian and foreign journal use the sighn №. In the titles the word journal is shortened for Journ.

Before the year of issue after the publisher's name or city (if no publisher) there is a comma.

For the papers: Last names and initials of all authors of the paper; full title of the paper; name of the journal; the year, the volume or issue number, the series, first and last page numbers.

For DOI article: Last names and initials of all authors of the paper; full title of the paper; name of the journal, year of publication, volume, number, first and last page of the article, DOI number.

For the theses: Last name and initials of the author of the thesis, full title of the thesis; for the pursuance of which academic degree the thesis was presented; the place and year of the defense of the thesis; the number of pages of the thesis.

For a book: The last names and initials of all authors of the book; full title of the book; name of the publishing house and name of the city where it is situated; publication year; number of pages of the book.

For the remotely-accessed electronic resources: Last names and initials of all authors of the source, full title of the material, URL address, the protocol of access to the network resource, the date of publication or creation, the date of access to the electronic resource (if it is not possible to determine the date of publication or creation).

For the standards: The name of the standard, the number of the standard, the place and year of publication, the number of pages.

For the patent documents: The last names and initials of all authors, the name of the invention; the patent number; the country, number and date of filing the application for the invention, the date of patent publication; the number of bulletin of inventions, the pages.

Graphic material

The journal publishes black-and-white illustrative material.

While making graphic files you are asked to keep to the following recommendations:
Vector pattern, schemes, diagrams are preferably to be presented in the format of the program, they were carried out or in EPS. For other illustrations it is preferable to use TIFF, JPEG formats, optimum resolving capacity – 300 dpi.
Photographs should be supplied in 2 variants. The first one ought to correspond to the paper-based original, with marks and inscriptions; the second one should not contain any texts, captures etc. The advisable file formats are TIFF, JPEG, the optimum resolving capacity – 300 dpi. The gray color shade is allowed from 9 to 93%.

All illustrations are to be retained as separate files in the folder. Every file retains one picture.
