2.3. THE BODY OF THE TEXT should be structured in sections. The experimental scientific article usually has the following sections: INTRODUCTION, METHODS, RESULTS, DISCUSSION, CONCLUSIONS, and REFERENCES. In addition to these sections the section AKNOWLEDGEMENS may be placed before the LITERATURE section. If there are some additional data to the article, they could be placed in an APPENDIX section located after the section LITERATURE.

2.4. CITATION. References in text should be placed in square brackets. The examples below illustrate basic rules on citing references in text:

[Cao et al., 1998] – a reference to an English article written by 3 or more authors;

[Arah and Stephen, 1998] – a reference to an English article written by 2 authors;

[Grant, 1998] – a reference to an English article written by 1 author.

The reader can be interested in the material cited and need to refer to the original source.

Therefore it is desirable to specify pages containing the citations when referring to a sufficiently great publication (e.g. books). The page numbers should be placed after the year of publication and separated by a comma. It is possible to specify several pages when necessary. Examples:

[Cao et al., 1998, р. 3293],

[Кароль, 1996, с. 5-7],

[Wille et al., 2008, p. 5, 8].

It is also possible to place several references in a historical order within the same square brackets, separated by a semicolon:

[Cao et al., 1998, р. 3293; Wille et al., 2008, p. 5, 8].

2.5. LIST OF REFERENCES. A reference list should be 9-point type. Cited literature should be given in the alphabetic order. Authors should specify not only the names of journals but also the names of the quoted articles. It is possible to use generally accepted abbreviations for the journals. See detailed information about List of references with examples in an additional file. The reference list guidelines are available from another file: https://www.ugrasu.ru/education/institutions/recenvironmental-dynamics-and-global-climate-change-the-unescochair/UNESCO_journal/docs/The%20reference%20list%20guidelines_ENG.pdf

 

3. TABLES. All tables with captions should be placed at the end of the paper after the text of the complete manuscript submitted by the authors. The titles of the tables – 11 poins, “Table #” printed in boldface, the font size of the tables shouldn’t be less than 8 points.

 

4. FIGURES. All figures with captions should be placed at the end of the paper after the text of the complete manuscript submitted by the authors. Furthermore, all figures must be presented as the individual graphics files (one picture – one file) with the following title format: First author surname, Fig.#.

Duplicating of the results in tables or figures is not permitted. If the author considers it necessary to provide the same information and a picture, and in the form of a table in the main text of the article, he still has to put a table or figure, but in the electronic annex to the article on the website he is free to place whatever he wants.

The paper can also contain color figures (mainly photos and maps). They should be placed on separate pages at the end of the paper (1-2 color pictures on an A4 paper). The journal will contain all color pictures on insets of 8 pages one after another with individual continuous picture numbering. For technical reasons, journal issue can contain only one or two insets. Therefore we ask authors who are inclined to believe that the color pictures are necessary for the paper to discuss this question with the editor responsible for the print version of the journal (prof. Lapshina E.D.).

 

5. FORMULAS should be placed centered or left aligned at the author’s discretion. Numerals in parentheses should be used for formula numbering when necessary. A formula number should be placed on its right side.

 

6. ABBREVIATIONS (except the conventional abbreviations) should be defined in special chapter called «Accepted abbreviations».

 

7. DATA PUBLISHING.  We encourage the authors to make the data that underpin or are described in their articles publicly available. The authors could chose the way in which the raw data will be presented: 1) The data files could be imported in the text (e.g., Darwin Core occurrence data, checklists, data tables, literature references), 2) The data files could be attached to the article as supplementary materials, 3) The large data sets could be imported in established international repositories (e.g. GBIF, Dryad, NCBI GenBank, Pangaea, TreeBASE, Morphbank, and others). In this case the authors must provide a citation of the datasets and where they are deposited (including accession numbers, DOIs or other persistent URL identifiers). For biodiversity and biodiversity-related data the reader may consult the Strategies and guidelines for scholarly publishing of biodiversity data (Penev et al. 2017, Research Ideas and Outcomes 3: e12431. https://doi.org/10.3897/rio.3.e12431).

 

8. ETHICS. The authors are solely responsible for the scientific content, the accuracy of the information used in the article, as well as for saving of the commercial state secrets.
