Requirements for references

  1. Structure of bibliographical reference to the Cyrillic sourse:
  • authors’ names and initials (transliteration);
  • transliterated name of the article or its English translation;
  • transliterated name of the sourse (journal, conference, year of publication, volume, number);
  • digital identificator doi (required)
  • for the monograph publisher’s imprint should be given (place of imprint, publishing house, quantity of pages).

2.3. References should not contain any special labels ("//", "/", "-"), at the end of the source specify [In Ukrainian] or [In Russian].

Put the reference list at the end of the manuscript. Every quoted sourse must be listed in the references. Alternatively, every quoted sourse must appear in the reference list. 

The numbers of the sourses are organized in the same order as they appear in the text. 

If the article has from 1 to 6 authors, all of them must be listed through commas. If there are more than 6 authors, the first 6 must be listed and followed by “et al.” in the end. 

Shorten the number of pages where applicable (for example, for pages 345-347 list 345-7). 

If the publication has a DOI, give it after URL.  Its possible to check the availability of doi articles at

To get DOI it is necessary to enter the title of the article in English in the search term.

The names of the journals should be abbreviated. The list of abbreviations can be found at the link:
