Requirements for submission

When submitting the manuscript to the journal, the authors must confirm its compliance with all of the requirements set out below. In case of discrepancy between the submitted work and the items of these requirements, the editorship will return the materials to the authors for revision.

Title of the article (in English)

Initials and surnames of the authors (in English)

The abstract should contain an introductory sentence, a brief description of the methods of conducting the research (1-2 sentences), a description of the main results (50-70% of the volume of the abstract) and concise conclusions or prospects for further research (1 sentence). The terminology used in specialized international English-language journals should be used in the text. The abstract itself must be clear without acquaintance with the main content of the article. Use an active rather than a passive voice ("The study tested," not "It was tested in this study"). International databases to which your article will get after its publication in the journal, do not transliterate and translate anything, they will accept any variants of your surname, initials, organization names, listed in the article, even with errors.


Keywords: 4-6 words (phrases), none of which duplicates the words from the title of the article

Postal address: name of the organization, street and house, City and index, Country (in English)

ORCID of each of the authors of the article

Title of the article (in Ukrainian) 

Initials and surnames of the authors (in Ukrainian) 

Official name of the organization, city, state (in Ukrainian) 

Annotation in Ukrainian (according to the language of the article). The volume is about 2000-2500 characters. The requirements are the same as for the annotation in English.

Keywords: 4-6 words (phrases), none of which duplicates the words from the title of the article

When writing an article, please observe the following rules. The volume of the article - not less than 3000 and not more than 5000 words, Times New Roman,12 pt, line spacing - single, fields -2 cm, sheet A5. The text materials should be prepared in MS Word editor (* .doc). Prepare mathematical formulas and equations in the embedded equation editor. Use the units of the International Measurement System.

The title of the article should briefly inform about its content, contain no more than 12 words. The title should be interesting for an international audience. The experimental article should contain the following sections: Introduction, Material and Methods of Research, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, References. The review article may have different numbers of sections with arbitrary titles, but conclusions and References are required.

Tables and figures should be numbered according to the content of the article. The statistical and other details are given below the table in the notes. Table materials and drawings are placed in the text of the manuscript immediately after the first mentioning of them. All elements of the text in images (graphs, charts, diagrams), if possible, should have a Times New Roman headset

Articles returned after the refinement later than a month are considered as new ones. The editorial board reserves the right to correct and reduce the text. The authors are responsible for the accuracy of the content of the submitted materials.

As an example, you can use articles published in the latest issue of the journal.

References in the text are based on the sample (Surname, year), for example: one author (Vinson, 1997), two authors (Vargo & Laurel, 1994; Vargo & Hulsey, 2000), three or more authors (Jones et al. , 1978; Davis et al., 1989). 


The introduction should include a description of the research of the  problem in the world scientific literature (at least 15 references to English-language articles in international editions over the past 5 years). The introduction is completed by characterization of the purpose of the article or the hypotheses formulated before the start of the study. 

Materials and methods

The section should give the opportunity to repeat the entire volume of the research to verify the author's article data. It can, if necessary, be subdivided into subsections. The section should create a coherent idea that the author of the article is aware of all possible sources of errors that may affect the results of the research.


The section can, if necessary, be subdivided into subsections. The requirements for writing this section are general, as well as for all international scientific publications.

 Results and Discussion can not be combined into one common section of the article. 


In the Discussion, it is necessary to summarize the results, compare them with 10-20 results of other studies.

Let’s briefly describe the shortcomings that are most common in manuscripts.

1. The Latin names are in italics, the author's surname and the year - in normal type.

2. It is not possible to refer to a table or a drawing as a separate sentence.

3. It is necessary to avoid " superfluous " words in the sentences. The same is true for larger fragments of the text.

4. Units of measurement of the CI system are given without a point (m, g, ha, mol), and non-standardized units - with reductions (ex. / M2, etc.).

5. It is necessary to distinguish the characters «—», «–» and «-». The first of them is not used in manuscripts.

6. Most of the editorial changes are due to incorrect use of the words "in", "and", "from" etc.

7. The articles do not use the expression "within" - we replace " during"

8. It is necessary to avoid the word "was": as a rule, the sentence content does not change without it.

9. It is desirable not to use the reduction of scientific terms in the article.

10. The names of the tables and drawings (and the notes to them) should be "comprehensive". The reader should not need to re-read the section "Material and Methods " or the title of the article to understand the content of the table or figure, determine the repetition of the research and understand the information provided after the plus or minus: standard error, square deviation or mistake (SE, SD or m )

11. The article may be rejected by the reviewers due to the lack of proper statistical processing of the primary data.

12. It is not recommended to use passive voice in the text.

13. If you have any questions about the design or presentation of certain data in the article, you can take the last issue of the journal as an example.

14. Diagrams must be editable.


Conclusions - 5-10 sentences should better be written in solid text.

Acknowlegements (if necessary)

Acknowledgments are given after the conclusions before the bibliographic references.


The list of literature references is given in alphabetical order, and not in the order of reference in the text.

All authors should be included to the description of the article, without reducing their number. The list of references is based on the requirements of the American Psychological Association's APA, with the doi indexes, available at www.crossref.org.

Concluding remarks

The manuscript should be executed in such a way that the number of refinements and revisions during the article's editing is minimal. You may use this file as a template to prepare  the articles (font size, line spacing, page parameters).

Articles are sent to the editorial board as one file  in electronic form only by e-mail to info@http://instzak.com/. Executive editors - Oksana Mityay, Olena Nikoliuk, Tetyana Shestakovska.

Payment for organizational expenses

Payment for organizational expenses of the editorial board (reviewing articles, preparation and printing of original layouts, work with literary and technical editors, mail and transport costs, obtaining a digital identifier, indexing in databases, Internet provider services, etc.) is carried out after the article is accepted for publication. Payment for the publication of an article drawn up in accordance with the requirements for a manuscript is executed after the adoption of the final decision on publication. Attention: According to the decision of the Editorial Board, in 2018 the submission of manuscripts is free of charge! Please also note that in the future the cost of publication may vary. All authors of the articles, at their request, are given one copy of the journal. In this case, the authors must compensate the cost of publishing a printed version of the journal in the amount of 200 UAH.

The procedure of reviewing the articles

Scientific articles submitted to the editorial board are subject to review. The form of reviewing articles is external (reviewing manuscripts by two leading specialists in the relevant field of science).

The editorial board determines the compliance of the article to the journal's profile, the requirements for design, sends it for review to a doctor or a candidate of sciences, who has a scientific specialization close to the subject of the article. The responsible editor informs the authors within three working days about getting an electronic version of the article by the editorial board. The terms of review in each individual case are determined taking into account the employment of reviewers for the fastest publication of the article (usually from one to two weeks). The following aspects of the future publication should be identified in the review:

- whether the content of the article corresponds to its title;

- how much the article corresponds to the modern achievements of science;

- whether the article is available to researchers from the point of view of language, style, location of material, tables, drawings, etc .;

- whether the publication of the article is reasonable in the light of previously published literature on this issue;

- what exactly are the positive features, as well as the shortcomings of the article, which corrections and additions should be made by the author;

- conclusion on the possibility of publishing the manuscript: "recommended", "recommended in the light of  corrections and deficiencies noted by the reviewer " or "not recommended".

In case of rejection of an article, the editorial board sends a motivated rejection to the author.

An article, not recommended by the reviewer prior to publication, is not accepted for re-examination.

The presence of a positive review is not a sufficient condition for the publication of the article. The final decision on the expediency of publication is taken by the editorial board.

After the decision on the publication is made, the responsible editor informs the authors about it, specifies the terms of publication and payment.
