The abstract or the annotation must provide 3 to 10 key words that allow the article to be indexed in the information retrieval systems.

Text. An original article should not exceed 8-10 pages (1 page contains 1800 characters with spaces); brief communications and clinical notes should be 3-4 pages; lectures and reviews should be 12-15 pages.

The original articles should have the following structure.

Introduction. This defines the objective of and a need for an investigation, briefly describes the current state of the problem with references to the most important publications.

Subjects/materials and methods. These provide the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of patients (examinees) and mention all techniques used in the investigation, including statistical methods for data processing. When equipment and novel drugs are mentioned, their manufacturers and country should be indicated.

Results. These should be sequenced logistically in the text, tables, and figures. The text should not repeat all the data from the tables and figures, but should mention only the most important data of them. The figures should not replicate the data given in the tables. Figure captions with designations should be appropriately numbered on a separate page. Units of measurements should comply with the International System of Units (SI).

Discussion. The authors must identify the new and important aspects of the results of their investigation and, where possible, to compare them with the data obtained by other investigators. The information already given in the section “Introduction” and detailed data in the section “Results” should not be repeated. Discussion may include sound recommendations and a concise conclusion.

Tables. Each table should be typed on a separate page and must have a name and a serial number in accordance with to its first mention in the text. Each table column should have a brief heading (abbreviations may be used). All explanations, including abbreviation expansion, must be placed in footnotes. Identify statistical methods used to represent the variability of data and difference significance.

Captions for illustrations. These should be typed on a separate page numbered in Arabic numerals according to the numbers of figures. The caption for each figure should consist of its name and a legend (explanations of the parts of a figure, symbols, arrows, and its other details).

Illustrations (figures, diagrams, photographs) should be presented on separate sheets; their number must be absolutely necessary. The back of illustrations must have the surname of the first author, the number of a figure, and an indication of its top. The figures must not be overloaded with textual inscriptions.

References (citation) should be typed on a separate sheet(s), state each reference by beginning a new line and giving an ordinal number. A list should enumerates all references according to the order of citation in the text, not in alphabetical order of the surnames of the first authors. When the individual surnames of the authors are mentioned in the text, these should be preceded by their initial (the surnames of foreign authors should be given in their original transcription). References should be indicated in the text by Arabic numerals in square brackets. A list of references should not include dissertation papers as their familiarization is difficult. When compiling a reference list, preference should be given to the works of Russian authors.

The list should be compiled in the following order: a) surnames of all authors of a book or an article; b) the title of a book or an article; c) imprint. Sometimes, editors or compilers may act as the authors of books. The surname of the last of them should be followed by “ed.’ in parentheses.

The bibliographic description of a book (after its title) should give the city or town (where it was published), followed by a colon and the publisher name, a semicolon and the year of publication. A reference to a book chapter should include first its authors and title followed by a point, a capital letter “In:”, and the surname(s) of author(s) or those who act(s) as its editor, then the title of the book, and its imprint.

The bibliographic description of a journal article (after its title) should give the abbreviated name of a journal and the year of publication (no punctuation symbol is put between them), then a semicolon and the issue of a Russian journal (its volume, as well as its number parentheses for foreign journals), a colon and the first and (a dash) last digits of pages.
