An article containing the results of experiments must have permission to publish. It is sent in paper form to the address of the editorial office or scanned and sent in PDF format.  The form should be free.

The size of original articles, including the list of references, tables, figures and summaries — no more than 12 pages, the volume of review articles — up to 20 pages (including the list of references), brief messages, cases from practice, reviews — up to 5 pages.

The manuscript should include – abstract, aims and objectives, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions.

Introduction should be succinct, with no subheadings. The materials and methods section should contain sufficient detail so that all procedures can be repeated. It may be divided into headed subsections if several methods are described. If you have more than one method, use subsections with relevant headings, e.g. different models, in vitro and in vivo studies, statistics, materials and reagents, etc.

We encourage authors of clinical trials and other clinical studies to upload the detailed plan of their study that was approved by the ethics committee (or European Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals used for Experimental and Other Scientific Purposes, 18.03.1986) as supplementary materials.  If there is a published version of the protocol, this should also be cited in the methods section.

In any studies on human or animal subjects, the following ethical guidelines must be observed. For any experiments on humans, all work must be conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki (1964). Manuscripts describing experimental work which carries a risk of harm to human subjects must include a statement that the experiment was conducted with the human subjects’ understanding and consent, as well as a statement that the responsible Ethical Committee has approved the experiments. In the case of any animal experiments, the authors must provide a full description of any anesthetic or surgical procedure used, as well as evidence that all possible steps were taken to avoid animal suffering at each stage of the experiment.

References to the article should include links to publications over the past 10 years. Original articles — no more than 20 sources, reviews — up to 50. The list is compiled in the order of appearance of references — 1,2,3, etc. Works of one author are arranged in ascending years of publication. Works of domestic authors, published in foreign editions, are indicated in Latin, in the language of the publication. Monographs of foreign authors translated into Russian are given in Cyrillic, indicating the language of the translation. The names of foreign authors in the list of references are given in the original transcription.

The article should be no more than 3 figures and / or tables. Micrographs and X-rays should be contrasted. In the captions to them indicate the increase (eyepiece, lens) and the method of staining or impregnation of the material. In the figure captions, explanations of the values ​​of all curves, letters, numbers and other symbols are given. Tables and figures can be inserted into the text. Color drawings should be duplicated in black and white.

Upon submission of an article, authors should include all figures and tables in the PDF file of the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files. If the article is accepted, authors will be asked to provide the source files of the figures. Each figure should be supplied in a separate electronic file. All figures should be cited in the manuscript in a consecutive order. Figures should be supplied in either vector art formats (Illustrator, EPS, WMF, FreeHand, CorelDraw, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) or bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers.

Generic and species names of organisms, infraspecific categories, as well as family names should correspond to the names adopted by the International Taxonomic Committee. The first time (in the title or text) the name of the studied organisms is written in full, in italics, for example: Plasmodium vivax. Next, you should write the name of the genus only one capital letter, the type — completely with a lowercase letter, for example: P. vivax. Family names are written in full, without italics.
