Abstract. An authorial summary repeats the structure of the article and shortly reveals the aim, methods, results and conclusions. The information given in a summary must not contain the materials which aren’t 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 in the author’s summary. Summary must not contain references to the 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 contain 200–250 words.


Author’s initials and last name (italics)

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 (transliterated), 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 fifures. If there is a table, it is not necessary to give digital material in the text, just to specify the change of indexes with reliable differences (P<) in times or percents, cross-correlation (r=). If figures are present in the text it follows to give digital data (AV arithmetic and rejection, oscillation).

Conclusions (5–10 sentences).

Prospects of further researches (3–4 sentences).

References. References to works of the last years must prevail. The list must be concluded in accordance to ISO in an alphabetical order (by numbers in square brackets). References to the foreign sources are published in the language of original source. The amount of references in the experimental article must not exceed 20 and for a review article — 100. It is not allowed to put reference to the unpublished materials.

For example: Golubets O. V., Vudmaska I. V. Fatty acids composition of rumen bacteria and protozoa in cows fed diet with different concentrates level and sodium bicarbonate addition. The Animal Biology, 2008, vol. 10, no. 1–2, pp. 103–110.

Tables. Tables are represented in text in order of mention. Abbreviations are not allowed in tables unless they are well-known. Digital data must be rounded according to the rules and taking into account a middle error. The results shouldn’t repeat in the tables and in figures. All columns in tables must be named and filled with corresponding data.

Illustrations. Figures are presented in the order of mention. Replacement of photographs of electrophoretic, chromatographic and other researches by figures 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 etc.).

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 (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 appropriate branch of science. The articles with corrections and remarks of reviewers are returned to the authors. After the revision of the article the author returns the copy of manuscript and review to the editorial board and also gives two printed copies and electronic version of the corrected article and necessarily the answer to the reviewer.
