 Do not include in the final list of sources a reference to State Standards (DSTU, ISO) and other normative documents that describe research methods or statistical compilations. You need to refer to them in footnotes, with sequential numbering along the text of the article.
 References to copyright certificates and patents should be indicated in the list of sources.
 References are formatted in accordance with the APA style (AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (APA) REFERENCING STYLE).
 Please note that you need to cite both classic and newest publications (last 3-5 years) in the leading specialized publications of the world (in English), be sure to indicate their DOI or URL, the correctness (activity) of which should be checked.
 It is possible to refer to manuscripts (abstracts, dissertations, reports, etc.) only if they are available on the web, that is, they have an email address (URL) of the full text.

 All manuscripts are independently reviewed by scientists who conduct research on related topics and have publications in specialized publications included in the List of Scientific Publications of Ukraine, or in publications included in international scientometric databases. The review procedure is described in detail in the section "About”
 After receiving a positive decision from the reviewer, the editorial board sends the author the comments and suggestions of the reviewer and editor and an invoice to pay the cost of the publication. The cost of publishing one page of the article and the terms of payment are indicated in the section "Financing and pricing policy" in the section "About".

Advice to authors to avoid mistakes and plagiarism
 It should be remembered that the purpose of writing an article is to cover, disclose the results of scientific research (assessment, analysis), and not to formulate and conduct research.
 You should choose the original sources – the edition where the argument you need was first published.
 Do not duplicate data in tables and figures in the text in any case.
 The admissible level of self-citation is no more than 5 %.
 Links to textbooks and electronic sources of a non-scientific nature, to encyclopedias, dictionaries and reference books are undesirable.
 Do not abbreviate the names of cities in the bibliographic description.
 For a verbatim quotation, it is imperative to use quotation marks ("…") and do not change the author's text in the quotation. Use a space and three dots for the omitted part of the quote.You should try to generalize information obtained from different sources, using your own inferences.
 Don't start a paragraph with a quote, initials, or the author's surname.
 The author must have permission to reproduce illustrations, tables, figures taken from other authors and / or sources, if the authors or copyright holders prohibit the use of their materials without special approval. Permission must be placed at the bottom under each item.
 To avoid accusations of auto-plagiarism, you should not copy fragments of unchanged text from your own, previously published works, without referring to the primary source. Most editors and reviewers think auto-plagiarism is unethical.
 Watch for the correctness of citation: refer to primary sources, do not cite sources that are not directly related to the topic of the article, completely and correctly fill out the bibliographic description, do not allow inconsistencies in citations in the text and the list of sources.
