3. Recommendations for writing annotations (author's abstracts) for scientific articles

Manuscripts with the most specific annotations are accepted for publication. The composite abstract can be constructed according to the principles of IMRAD (Introduction, Methods (Methodology), Results and Discussion). It is well-known international practice to use annotations (in English – resume or abstract) not only as a structural component of a scientific article itself, but also as a separate scientific form, which aims to familiarize the essence and content of the research in the broadest terms.

Relevance – is the topicality of the research. Purpose – is the aim and objectives of the study. Do not repeat the title of the article. If the purpose of the article is clear, then this sentence should be omitted. For example, you can specify – Considered Topics … Do not use suchwords as “In this article..” Competent researchers are well aware that this is your work.

Methods (research methodology) – are pieces of data about when, where, how the study was conducted; what information, methods were used; who was included in the group of subjects. The method or methodology of the work should be described if they differ in novelty or their development is an independent part of the work. The abstracts of the documents that describe the experimental works indicate the sources of data and the nature of their processing.

The results are the main conclusions (specifics), the consequences of the study. For example – Defined that …, It is found out that …, Shown that …, and so on. The results of the work are described in an accurate and informative way. Basic theoretical and experimental results, evidence, identified relationships and patterns are provided. In this case, preference is given to new results and data of long-term value, important discoveries, conclusions that refute existing theories, as well as data that, in the author’s opinion, are of practical importance.

The conclusions may include the recommendations, estimates, suggestions, hypotheses described in the article. It is not recommended to indicate that your approach or methodology is better than the other authors’ one. This is understandable from the very status of the article as a scientific itself.

Perspectives – is information about the result’s comparison with the findings of other scientists, what are the prospects for the study, directions for further work, the complexity.

In the process of annotation’s preparation, you should start with what you write for competent researchers and a wide range (spectrum) of potential English-speaking users Therefore, you can enter special terms in annotation. You should clearly state your position. The style of its presentation depends on the number of appealsand, what is especcially important and relevant today, the number of citations of your publication. The abstract should not contain general words.

The author’s resume should state the essential facts of the work and should not exaggerate or contain material that is not present in the main body of the publication.

The information contained in the title of the article should not be repeated in the text of the author’s summary. Abbreviations and conventions are not allowed.

The author’s resume does notinvokethe publication number in the list of references in the article.

Excessive introductory phrases should be avoided (for example, “author’s reviews”). Historical references, if they do not constitute the main content of the document, no description of previously published works and well-known provisions should not be presented in the abstract.

Syntax constructions inherent in the language of scientific and technical documents should be used in the text of the abstract and complex grammatical constructions (not used in scientific English) should be avoided.

The volume of the text is determined by the content of the publication (the amount of information, their scientific value and / or practical value), but should not be less than 1800 symbols..

4. Recommendations for writing the text of a scientific article

According to the Resolution of the Presidium of the Higher Attestation Commission of Ukraine dated 15.01.2003 №7-05 / 1 “On increasing the requirements for professional publications included in the lists of the Attestation Commission of Ukraine”, the text of the article should include the following elements:
the relevance of the problem in its general form and its validity to important scientific or practical tasks;
an analysis of the latest research and publications in which the problem is solved and which the author relies on, the selection of previously unresolved parts of the general problem to which the article is devoted;
formulation of the purpose of the study (setting the task);
presentation of the main research material with full justification of the scientific results;
conclusions from this study and prospects for further investigations in this area.

Features of the scientific article’s style

Often, authors who declare access to a scientific issue use a nonfiction style of presentation. Mixing styles is not justified, as a creation of a qualitative intellectual product cannot be associated with publicity in any form. Journalism and science are two full-fledged, important for social development, but completely different areas of intellectual expression. That is why, starting with the stage of comprehension of the methods of gathering information and ending with the forms of presentation of those concepts and ideas that the author came up with as a result of the research, it is necessary to be clearly and unambiguously guided by the generally recognized scientific standards of the level of argumentation and style of presentation of the material.

It should be remembered that the article does not contain unproven theses and concepts; all ideas were in a natural and well-reasoned relationship; the author aimed to maximize objectivity and search for scientific truth, free from the pressure of ideology and emotions.

5. Recommendations for compiling a list of references

After the article 2 lists are submitted:
List of used links (regular reference list) and References (a list for international databases, where data are translated in Ukrainian / Russian using transliteration,, however sources are duplicated in English from the list of Used Sources). All authors should be included in the description of the document in the List and References, without reducing the list to three, as it is recommended by the current state standard.

Rules for designing the References translated in the Roman alphabet (Latin)

Proper description of the sources used in the literature lists is a guarantee that the cited publication will be taken into account when evaluating the scientific activity of its authors, and therefore (by chain) – the activities of the organization, region, country.

According to the citation, the periodical(journal) , determines its scientific level, authority, effectiveness of its editorial board, etc. The following is that the most significant components in the bibliographic references are the names of the authors and the names of the journals. In order for all authors of the publication to be included in the Scopus system, it is necessary to insert the names of all authors in the description of the article, without reducing them to three, four and more.

You must use the Harvard’s standard to draw up your References.

An example of a journal’s article description: Fritzkowski, P & Kaminski, H 2009, ‘Dynamics of a rope modeled as a discrete system with extensible members’, Computational Mechanics, no. 44(4), pp. 473-480. doi:10.1007/s00466-009-0387-2.

Example of the book description: Loveikin, V, Chovniuk, Yu, Dikteruk, M & Pastushenko, S 2004, Modeliuvannia dynamiky mekhanizmiv vantazhopidiomnykh mashyn, RVV MDAU, Mykolaiv.
