The quality of the abstract is estimated by content (how complete and understandable is the content of the article), volume and language.

It should keep in mind that the abstracts are intended for foreign scientists and specialists. The abstract is the main and, as a rule, the only source of information about the content of the article and the results of the research presented in it. Foreign experts evaluate the publication by the abstract, determine their interest in the submitted article, can use it in their publication and refer to it, open a discussion with the author of the article, request the full text of the article, etc.

The abstract to the article is designed to perform the function of an independent information source and can be published independently, in isolation from the main text, therefore, should be understandable without reference to the publication itself.

Abstracts should be:

  • informative (do not contain common words);
  • original;
  • meaningful (to reflect the main content of the article and the results of the research);
  • written in a quality language;
  • compact (the volume of the text of the annotation is determined by the amount of information, their scientific value and / or practical value), but not less than 100–250 words.

The information contained in the title of the article should not be repeated in the text of the abstract.

The abstract does not have links in the references list of the article.

Abstract should be accompanied by several key words or phrases reflecting the main topic of the article and facilitating the classification of work in computer search systems. The key words are separated by commas. At the end of the enumeration, a point is put at the end of a list. The key word size cannot be more than 100 characters, including spaces (limitation for e-library).

Block 2— the full text of the article in one of the languages allowed for publication in the journal.

The main part of the article should have a structure to make it easier to understand the author's logic. Desirable:introduction, subsectionsandconclusion.

There are no abbreviations in the names of cities or publishers, the main name is italicized. If the link is to a non-English source, after specifying the pages, we put the language of original in round brackets.

Transliteration

Representation of the Russian-language text (Cyrillic alphabet) according to various transliteration rules (or without rules at all) leads to the loss of necessary information in the analytical system Scopus. Therefore, it is important to choose and adhere to one or two of the most common systems. If you look at the dictionary of Russian authors in Scopus, you can distinguish at least four of the most frequently used transliteration systems. All these options must be taken into account when searching for publications and references of authors, organizations and journal titles that are transliterated from Cyrillic.

On the site http://www.translit.ru you can use the program of transliteration of the Russian text into the Latin alphabet.

For transliteration of references, one should use variants without the designations of a hard and soft sign.

Transliteration is done just like References.
