The journal publishes the articles the Ukrainian and English languages.

The manuscript must be sent to the editorial board in two copies on a paper, and also in an electronic version by E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The manuscript of the article must be signed by each of the authors.

Experimental articles are accepted with an expert conclusion in relation to possibility of publication from the organization, where research has been conducted; if researches have partly conducted in other organization, then they must give the written consent on a publication.

A b s t r a c t.

An authorial summary repeats the structure of the article and shortly covers the aim and task, methods, results, conclusions. The information given in a summary must not contain the materials not included in the basic part of publication. Conclusions can be accompanied by recommendations, estimations, suggestions, hypotheses described in the article. Information concluded in the title must not be repeated in text of the author’s summary. The content of the summary must be laconic and clear, free from minor information, general and insignificant formulations. Abbreviation, except current, must be applied in the exceptional cases or given with their elucidation and determination at the first use of the author’s summary. Summary must not contain references to the list of literature. The size of the author’s summary is determined by the content of publication (size of information, them by a scientific value and/whether by a practical value), it must contain150–250 words.


Author’s initials and last name (in Italic)

A b s t r a c t (font size 12)

Name and address of a scientific organization that includes city and country, complete address information together with a mail address. All address information, except the name of street (given by a transliteration), also city and country. All these data are taken into account at forming of organizations profiles for every author of the article (font size 12).

Introduction. At the beginning of the article the background of issue is briefly summarized with reference to the literature and the aim of research is laid out.

Materials and methods are formed so that it will be possible to conduct research following the description. In case of well-known methods it is enough to give reference. It is necessary to point the names of firms and mark countries-producers of reagents and materials, kind and amount of experimental animals and necessarily, methods of anaesthetizing and euthanasia.

Results and discussions. It is not necessary to represent the same results in the tables and in pictures. If there is a table, it is not needed to give digital material in the text, only specify the change of indexes with reliable differences (р<) in times or percents, cross-correlation (r=). If picture are present in the text it follows to give digital data (AV arithmetic and rejection, oscillation).

Conclusions contain 5–10 sentences

Prospects of further researches (3–4 sentences).

List of the quoted literature. Conclude in accordance to ISO in the order of mention of sources in text of paper (by numbers in square brackets). References to the foreign sources point the language of original source. It is not allowed to do reference to the unpublished materials. The amount of references in the experimental article must not exceed 20, but in a review — 100. In a literature list must prevail references to works of the last years.

For example:

Author A. A., Author B. B., Author C. C. Title of article. Title of Journal, 2005, 10, (2), pp. 49–53.

Tables. Tables are represented in text in order of mention. Abbreviations, except for well-known, it is not allowed in tables.

All columns in tables must be named and filled by corresponding data.

Illustrations. Drawings are presented in the order of mention. Replacement of photographs of electrophoretic, chromatographic and other researches by drawings is unacceptable. Signatures to pictures, photos (font 10): the caption of picture and explanation of it separate elements, including abbreviations (А, B, а, b, 1, 2, І, ІІ et c.).

Terminology and units. All denotations and physical and chemical units are presented in SI-system. If certain organisms (animals, microorganisms) were used in researches, at first mentioned them mark the complete specific name of these organisms by Latin (by an italic), adhering to modern systematization, and at new mention of the name of family point briefly, for example Staph. аureus, Str. lactis.

The received articles are directed by an editorial board on a review to two leading specialists in corresponding branch of science. The articles with corrections and remarks of reviewers return to the authors. After the revision of the article an author returns the copy of manuscript and review to the editorial board, and also gives two copies of the corrected article and it electronic version and necessarily the answer to the reviewer.

For the control reading of the article editorial board sends to the authors e-mail typesetting that must be turned not later than three days by an e-mail.
