1. Scientific articles of 10-20 pages, paper size – A, page orientation – portrait, margins on each side – 20 mm., spacing – 1.5 cm., font size – 14, font –Times New Roman, paragraph – 1 cm (for the main text of the article) are accepted for consideration.

2. The structure of a scientific article:

line 1 - UDC identifier (left alignment, boldface font).

You can determine the UDC code following this link;

line 2 - JEL Classification (left alignment, boldface font). You can determine JEL code according to your key words visiting;

line 3 – last name and name of the author (boldface font, centered); 

line 4 – scientific degree and  academic rank, position and place of employment (full name of structural unit), town, country (centered);

line 5 – e-mail address of the author (centered);

Each co-author should be placed in a new line.

line 6 – title of an article (centered, boldface font, capital letters);

line 7 – abstract ( type TNR 12, italics, spacing – 1, the titles of structural elements – boldface). Scope of the article should be 150-250 words.

The manuscripts with maximally precise annotations are accepted to the publication. Abstract should contain the main conclusions of the work and results. Compositionally annotation can be built by the principle of IMRAD:

  • Introduction – the relevance of research.
  • Purpose – the purpose and objectives of the study.
  • Methods – the information about when, where and how the research  was conducted; which information; what methods were used; who was included into the experimental group.
  • Results – the main conclusions (specifics), the results of the study.
  • Prospects – the information about how the received result corresponds to the findings of other scientists, what are the research prospects, directions for further work, complexity.
  • Keywords (indicate 5-7 words or phrases), they should be concise and reflect the content of the specific of the manuscript.

Abstract and keywords are checked to prevent technical translation by software because the manuscript will be available in the Internet network: bibliography (scientometric) databases, information portals, online libraries.

line 8 – the text of the article with the following elements:

Introduction, where the importance of research, existing problems and ways of their solution in the context of setting scientific problems are highlighted; specify the unresolved parts of the problems are indicated.

Analysis of recent research and publications, where a brief analysis of scientific studies of the scientists on the subject of a scientific article is presented.

The purpose, where the purpose and objectives of scientific research are indicated.

Methodology of the study, where the main methods and techniques used in the scientific article are highlighted.

Results, where the main findings of research, presented in the scientific article are highlighted.

Conclusions and prospects, where the specific conclusions by the results of the study and prospects for further developments are presented.

3. List of references is given at the end of the article (not less than 8 references) according to the order of mention or in alphabetical order (type – TNR 12, spacing – 1). The list of references is set according to intergovernmental standard of DSTU :2006 “Bibliographic record. Bibliographic description. General requirements and rules”. References to literature sources in a text should be given in square brackets. [1, p. 56; 7, p. 45–51].

4. The appropriate data in English is indicated after the list of sources: the original data of the author (s), (examples of translation of scientific degrees, scientists and positions that are presented in the Appendix 3); the title of the article; abstract, keywords and a list of sources (adhere to the technical parameters of their design in accordance with the analogue).

5. List of references in English (References) is formed by the international standard АРА (that will be used at the location of manuscripts in international databases). The standard is used in the USA as a standard for design the paper (including bibliography) that was adopted by the APA (American Psychological Association) and is international. We recommend using the reference in order to facilitate the completing of sources according to this standard. Transliteration of Ukrainian symbols should be carried out in accordance with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers dated from 27 January 2010, no. 55, and Russian – according to the system BGN / PCGN. Examples of different types of sources by the proposed standards are listed in the Appendix 4.

6. Formulas (with the standard numbering) are performed in the editor Microsoft Equation.

7. The tables and illustrations must be only portrait orientation, their amount should be appropriate. The table must have the number that is set in a right hand corner (type – 14, italics, spacing – 1.5). The title of the table should be typed above the table (type – 14, boldface, spacing – 1.5). The text of the table should be typed Times New Roman (type – 12, spacing – 1). The reference should be indicated after the table (italics, type – 12, spacing – 1), or author’s development, made by the author on the grounds.

Figure should be a single graphical object and grouped; should have a number and a title that is indicated outside the object (font size - 14, boldface, line spacing –1). The figure is inserted in the text of the article. Figures must be contrasting and black-and-white, fill pane – dashes. Graphical materials must not be scanned.

8. Hard returns and the use of macro are not allowed in scientific articles. You must use the same type of quotation marks «…». You should clearly distinguish between the dash and the hyphen. Paragraphs should be marked only with the key “Enter”, you should not use spaces or tabs (key “Tab”). It is not allowed to use condensed or expanded font.
