In the Introduction it is necessary to describe the problem addressed briefly and the rationale for the investigation, and to state an objective and to justify novelty, the need for the research or observation. Only studies that are directly relevant to the topic should be cited, excluding data and conclusions presented in the article itself.

Describing Materials and Methods of research detailed information should be given about:

  1. the type of study: literature review, experimental, descriptive, analytic (case-control or cohort), or cross-sectional study (single point in time), case report, etc. For randomised trials, a randomization method must be specified. A study protocol should be set out as clearly as possible
  2. the time of the study, its duration (the study years, participating centres)
  3. the method of selecting patients or experimental animals for observation and experiments (including those for control groups), their age, sex and other relevant characteristics
  4. the methods, apparatus (with its manufacturing company and country or city) and all procedures in sufficient detail to allow other investigators to reproduce the results. The quantitative and qualitative characteristics of patients (examined) are given.
  5. cite references to established methods. Identify precisely all drugs and chemicals used, their dosage and administration routes. The trade name of a drug and a manufacturer can be identified in this section in brackets after a generic name of the drug. But it cannot be repeated over and over again throughout the article — this is an advertisement! 
  6. the statistical methods: all statistical criteria used should be mentioned (e.g. Student’s t-test for independent samples, Pearson correlation coefficient), statistical abbreviations should be expanded, e.g. Me (median), etc. It is insufficient to refer only to the used statistical software. The specified statistical processing methods should make it possible to solve the tasks set in the work (to determine the dependencies, show the relationships and their degree, etc.)
  7. the compliance of procedures presented by authors with ethical principles with the name of Ethics Committee that approved the research (when studying treatment methods, invasive diagnostic procedures involving human subjects or animals, protocol numbers and dates).

All clinical trials should be conducted in accordance with the ethical principles of Good Clinical Practice and comply with the requirements of Federal Law No. 61 “On the Circulation of Medicines” (2010), as well as other applicable laws of the Russian Federation: Decree by the Ministry of Health of Russia as of 04.01.2016 №200n "On approval of the rules of good clinical practice", National Standard of the Russian Federation GOST R 52379-2005 "Good Clinical Practice", Federal Law № 323-FZ as of 21.11.2011 "On public health protection in the Russian Federation" and other legal acts that are in force.

All procedures that are not related to providing the standard medical care for the patient's condition are the subject of research and should be carefully justified. Participants in the study must be familiar with the aims and main purpose of the study, with all the diagnostic procedures, treatments and rehabilitation plans that are included in the study (laboratory, functional, radiation and other diagnostic methods, medical appointments, and manipulations not provided in the standard treatment), after which the patient must sign Voluntary Informed Consent to participate (Voluntary Informed Consent to participate in the study and the provision of  routine medical practice are not one and the same!). If the research procedure includes radiation, then it is advisable to describe the procedures and the exposure dose in the "Material and Methods" section.

Confidential information about patients; photographs, names, medical document numbers and other sources by which the patient's identity can be identified; must not be included in the article.

Animal studies should be performed under relevant laws and licences of the country in which the work was performed (or to an acceptable level such as defined in the most recent on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.

Results of the research should be presented in the text, tables and figures following a logical sequence and avoiding repeating in the text information presented in tables or figures, only important observations should be emphasized or summarized. All Tables and Figures must be referred to in the main body of the text in the appropriate place. The name of the table must reflect its content; abbreviations are not allowed in the name of the tables. In the sub-tabular note, explanations of all abbreviations used in the table should be given, helping to read the table, including the units of measurement of the received data. Bulky constructions should be avoided, it should be clear what is being compared to what and where the calculated data comes from. Measurement values must be in accordance with the International System of Units (SI). If the authors use relative values, then absolute values must be presented.

The editors have the right to request from the authors the primary material under which the article was written.

Statistical significance of obtained results should be reported. When presenting the results (in part) standard error and confidence interval are required. Reporting the results only as arithmetic mean or median is not enough! The level of significance is recommended to be reported rounded to the third decimal place: e.g., p=0.023 instead of p<0.05. Mathematical formulas should be constructed using the standard tools of MS Word, scrutinized and placed in the text. Units of measure should be given in SI units, temperature in degrees Celsius, blood pressure in mmHg.

In the Discussion section novel and important aspects of the study, possibilities for the implementation of the obtained results also in further studies, as well as their limitations should be emphasized. Results of the study should be critically compared with other studies in this field. This part should not duplicate or replace the "introduction" section, but should have the task of explaining the data obtained and highlighting their novelty, confirming its assumptions based on already known facts obtained by other authors.

An explanation by authors of the results obtained is encouraged.

It is acceptable to combine the last two sections into one — "Results and Discussion".

The Conclusion should be linked with the objectives of the study. Try to avoid unfounded statements that are not supported by the facts.

    • A complete list of all authors should be presented in every bibliographical entry. Do not shorten titles of your citations. Shortened journal titles should correspond to the MedLine catalogue. If the journal is not indexed by MedLine, please provide its full title.

4.5. Tables

Tables should be illustrative and compact and contain statistically processed data. The total number of tables should not exceed three. If the authors prove the need for more tables, after approval by the editorial board it is liable to an additional charge. In order to create tables, standard tools of MS Word or Excel should be used. Each table should be typed with double spacing on a separate page and numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Each table should have a short title, and each column should have a short title (abbreviations expanded in a footnote can be used). All explanations should be placed in a footnote, but not in the title of the table. Authors should specify which statistical parameters are used for representing the variability of the data, e.g. standard deviation and standard error of the mean. As an alternative to tables with a lot of data, graphs are recommended. The title of the table, its data and footnotes should be sufficient to understand the information presented in the table without reading the text of the article.

4.6. Figures and charts.

4.6.1. Figures presented in the text and in separate files should meet the following requirements:

  • file format * .tif or * .jpg;

The total number of figures should not exceed 3-5. If the authors prove the need for more figures, after approval by the editorial board it is liable to an additional charge.

Each figure should be accompanied by a short legend, which along with the figure content should be sufficient to understand the information presented in the figure without reading the text of the article.

Photos of potentially recognizable people should be presented with the use of de-identification methods. On roentgenograms, tomograms, the names of patients should not be visible.

All figures should be original. Publication of unoriginal images is possible only after receiving copyright permission.

4.6.2. Charts and graphs should be editable. In histograms alternating solid color (black, white, grey) and pattern (hatching, diamonds, etc.) is recommended.  In charts the use of clearly distinguishable markers and dashed or dotted lines is recommended. All digital data and footnotes should be well distinguishable. Each figure should be accompanied by a short legend, which along with figure content should be sufficient to understand the information presented in the figure without reading the text of the article.

Each chart and graph should be accompanied by a short legend, which along with chart and graph content should be sufficient to understand the information presented in the figure without reading the text of the article.

Charts and graphs should be presented both in the text and in separate files in the format of the program that created them.

5. Structure features of other types of manuscripts

In general, authors should follow the rules given above during preparation of manuscripts taking into account the following features. Abstracts of review articles may be presented without dividing them into sections. Other types of publications (letters to the editor, reviews of monographs, conference information, jubilees, etc.) may be submitted without abstracts. Keywords should be given in all cases.

Literature reviews should indicate where (in what sources, databases) the material was collected; if digital material is used, a reference to statistical sources - open or departmental materials (in particular, when indicating the state of the problem in terms of morbidity, prevalence of pathology, mortality) or memorandum records is mandatory. It is incorrect to take statistics data from other review publications or articles. Of course, the use of basic publications is encouraged, but the overwhelming majority of sources should be publications from recent years. It is inadmissible to talk about the “current situation” referring to data from 3–5 years ago.

It is desirable that the reviews comply with international recommendations for systematic literature search methods and standards. Abstract of review articles should contain information about the methods of literature search in the databases Scopus, Web of Science, MedLine, The Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Global Health, CyberLeninka, RSCI and others. The keywords of review articles should include the word “review”.]
