REQUIREMENTS FOR MANUSCRIPTS SUBMITTED TO THE JOURNAL ARE BASED ON THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE HIGHER ATTESTATION COMMISSION OF RUSSIA AND THE ICMJE RECOMMENDATIONS

GENERAL RULES

  1. The manuscript should be initialed by the supervisor and accompanied by an official Letter of Confirmation (see. ATTACHMENT 1) issued by the affiliate institution of the manuscript that dwells with issues covered by the publication. In some cases the editors may need an expert opinion or opinion of the Ethics Committee to conduct the published study.

The Letter of Confirmation printed on the institution’s headed note-paper should indicate whether the article pertains to the thesis work.

  1. The manuscript should be signed by all authors providing the Journal with the right to publish it.
  2. Authenticated signatures of the authors (last page of the manuscript) together with the Letter of Confirmation, initialed by the institution’s management should be scanned. Scanned documents are then sent to the Journal via e-mail.
  3. Manuscripts already submitted to other publishers should not be sent to the Journal editors. If any part of the manuscript has been published by other publishers, the Letter of Confirmation should note that with the intent that the Journal’s editors make an informed decision about publishing the presented text.
  4. See ATTACHMENTS 1-3 for sample Letter of Confirmation, Title page and Reviewer’s Check List.

See ATTACHMENTS 4-5 for rules of Appeal and Retraction of articles.

ATTACHMENTS 1-5 are presented at the end of this web-page.

PEER-REVIEW OF ARTICLES SUBMITTED TO THE JOURNAL

  1. All scientific manuscripts submitted to the Journal are reviewed according to the established procedures.
  2. The Journal’s editors check whether the manuscript complies with the Journal’s profile and formatting requirements and send it on to the Executive Secretary. The Executive Secretary evaluates scientific value of the manuscript and presents his opinion to the editorial board. Then the editorial board appoints two reviewers. The manuscripts are reviewed by external reviewers who are main Russian specialists in the related field and work in scientific areas that correspond to the theme of the manuscript.
  3. The reviewers handle the manuscript as confidential information with strict compliance to the ethical requirements for the reviewer. The Journal editors consider expert review of manuscripts as an essential part of the scientific process.

The editors also encourage reviewers to withdraw if biased.

  1. The Journal’s editors use a double-blind review method, i.e. neither authors nor reviewers know identity of each other.
  2. The author of the reviewed manuscript is provided with a copy of the review.
  3. Review takes three weeks. The deadline is monitored by the editors. Depending on situation and upon request expressed by either one or both reviewers the review period can be extended.
  4. The Journal editors use Reviewer’s Check List to ensure comprehensive and unbiased review of manuscripts (see ATTACHMENT 2). Guided by the Check List the reviewer evaluates how well the manuscript reports certain issues and gives their opinion about the manuscript. The manuscript a) can be recommended for publication as it is or revised according to the reviewer’s comments or b) not recommended for publication. In some cases the manuscript can be submitted to another specialist for further review.
  5. If the review contains recommendations to change or improve the manuscript, head of the editorship sends the author a copy of the review and suggests that the author consider recommendations to developing a new manuscript or rejecting recommendations with reason (partially or in full). The improved version of the manuscript will be again submitted for review.
  6. Should the authors and reviewers come into irrepressible contradictions regarding the manuscript, the editorial board has the right to submit the manuscript for further review. In disputed situations the manuscript can be given to one of the members of the editorial board for review. In such situations the final decision is up to the Editor in Chief.

If the author sends a Notice of appeal to the Journal expressing their disagreement with the editors’ decision regarding their manuscript, this manuscript together with the appeal is sent on to the “Conflict management committee” for informed decision about its possible publication (see ATTACHMENT 4).

  1. A manuscript not recommended for publication by the reviewers is not eligible for further submission. Notice on a negative review together with the review per se is sent to the author via e-mail.
  2. Positive reviews are not sufficient for publishing the manuscript. The final decision whether the manuscript is worth publishing is made by the Editorial board based on the manuscript significance and its compliance with the theme of the Journal. In disputable situations the decision is made by the Editor in Chief. Decision on each manuscript made by the Editorial board is documented in the minutes of its meetings.
  3. The Journal keeps the original reviews for five years.

FORMATTING AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

  1. The manuscript should be sent to the editors in electronic format (either on disc or via e-mail). The manuscript should not exceed 10-24 pages.
  2. The Journal accepts manuscript files in MS Word 97/2000/XP/2007/2010.doc,.docx, size 14, Times New Roman, 1.5 line space.
  3. The manuscript should be organized as follows:
    • Author (authors) – last names and initials in Russian;
    • Title in Russian
    • Full official name of the affiliate institution in Russian
    • Space
    • Author (authors) – last names and initials in English;
    • Title in English
    • Full official name of the affiliate institution in English
    • Space
    • Contacts: Full name and e-mail address;
    • Space
    • Abstract in Russian;
    • Keywords or key phrases in Russian;
    • Abstract in English;
    • Keywords or key phrases in English;
    • Space

All keywords and key phases (five to seven words ideally) are separated by semicolon.

The list of keywords should reflect the research field as precisely as possible. General terms (like health, disease, number of population, healthcare, etc.) that do not clearly outline specifics of the research subject should be avoided.

Notes. Title, abstract and keywords should not be electronically translated into English to avoid distortion of the author’s meaning.

See ATTACHMENT 3 for sample title page.

  1. Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) mark (not obligatory) is given together with the UDC acronym in the upper left corner of the first page. The UDC classification mark is determined though the complete edition of the Universal Decimal Classification.
  2. The manuscript should contain Abstract which is the main source of information in national and international information systems and databases that index the Journal.
  3. The Abstract should be structured, concisely and accurately reflect content of the manuscript providing basic factual information and conclusions without over-interpretation or critical remarks of the author. Information in the Abstract should not differ from that in the text. The wording should be concise and persuasive. The text should not contain nonessential information. Charts, tables, graphs, pictures or references to literature are not allowed.
  4. The Abstract should start with the phrase summarizing the main idea of the article. Often this information is included in the title. Redundant introductory phrases (for example, “the author of the article considers….”) should be avoided. Syntactic structures of scientific language are encouraged while complicated grammar should be avoided. Only standard terminology should be used in the Abstract. Acronyms and abbreviations in the text are not allowed. Rare terms should be avoided as well. The author should ensure consistency of terminology in both Abstract and Article.
  5. The Abstract should contain essential words from the text of the article to ensure automated retrieval. The Abstract should specify the following contents:
  • Significance, subject, purpose of the work;
  • Methods;
  • Results;
  • Conclusions;
  • Scope of application

The Abstract should only list the methods used. Results of the work should be described as accurately and informatively as possible. The Abstract should list basic theoretical and experimental results, factual information and relationship patterns and regularities identified. The focus should be placed on new findings and conclusions, which, according to the author, are of practical importance.

Data limitations and reliability, as well as degree of validation should be indicated.

Conclusions may be followed by recommendations, estimates, and proposals described in the article. On average the Abstract should not exceed 2700 characters (up to 1.5 pages of text) as recommended by the Social Aspects of Population Health journal. The text of the Article shoul beginwith the Abstract.

  1. Do not forget, that Abstract is the article in small and its structure mirrors the one of the article. The Abstract is usually developed after the article is finalized. Availability of Abstract does not mean that its main parts (relevance, object, goal, methods, results, conclusions and scope of application) can be ignored in the text of the article.

The intent and content of the Abstract in Russian and English should be consistent.

  1. Structure of a scientific article outlined by the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals of the International Committee of the Medical Journal Editors should include the following sections: “Introduction”, “Methods”, “Results, “Discussion” and “Conclusion”.

This structure is not an arbitrary publication format but a reflection of the process of scientific discovery.

Introduction. This section provides a context for the problem under study and its significance and states the specific purpose of the study.

Methods. This section should clearly describe the selection of observational or experimental participants (including controls), including eligibility and exclusion criteria and a description of the source population. The guiding principle of the Methods section should be clarity about how and why a study was done in a particular way.

The section should aim to be sufficiently detailed so that other researchers would be able to reproduce the results.

Results. Results should be presented in logical sequence in the text, tables and figures. The main or most important findings should be presented or summarized first.

Numeric results should be given not only as derivatives (for example, percentages) but also as the absolute numbers from which the derivatives were calculated. The Results section should also specify statistical methods used to analyze data. Tables and figures should be restricted to those needed to explain the argument of the paper and to assess supporting data.

Graphs should be used as an alternative to tables with many entries; data should not be duplicated in graphs and tables.

Nontechnical uses of technical terms in statistics should be avoided, such as “random” (which implies a randomizing device), “normal,” “significant,” “correlations,” and “sample”.

Discussion. Emphasis should be placed on the new and important aspects of the study and the conclusions that follow from them in the context of the current best available evidence. Data or other information given in the Introduction or the Results section should not be repeated in detail. It is useful to begin the discussion by briefly summarizing the main findings, then explore possible mechanisms or explanations for these findings, compare and contrast the results with other relevant studies, state the limitations of the study. It is also advisable to explore the implications of the findings for future research or for clinical practice.

It is important to link the conclusions with the goals of the study but avoid unqualified statements and conclusions not adequately supported by the data. In particular, statements on economic benefits should be avoided unless the manuscript includes the appropriate economic data and analyses.

Claiming priority to the study should be avoided. It is appropriate to state new hypotheses when warranted, but label them clearly.

Conclusions. Conclusions should be stated in affirmative statements defining the study results that all together clearly indicate achievement of the study goals. Conclusions should be listed in order of their importance. Usually they are restricted to five or six.

  1. Text and other materials should be thoroughly checked. The manuscript text should not include such affirmative phrases and words like “it is known that” or “as you know”, “it is scientifically proved that”, “as experience shows”, “proceeding from the common knowledge that”, etc. Authors should provide direct references to original sources of such statements even if such statements are generally accepted and widely known. It is interpretation of the fact that is important rather than accepted truth of the statement no matter how trivial it is.
  2. The manuscript should not use foot references to citation courses. Only end references are allowed.
  3. References to sources should be enclosed in square brackets. If there are several sources, they are listed in ascending order, separated by commas without spaces. For example: [2,4,6,8]. If several references are cited in the same place in the text, a hyphen for joining the first and the last numbers inclusively should be used [2-6,8-12]. Do not use a hyphen if there are no intermediate numbers in citation, for example, [1-2]. The text should not contain references to sources not included in the References.
  4. The manuscript should be accompanied by References (Bibliographic List) containing at least nine references.
  5. References should follow the standards summarized in the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals developed by the: International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (Vancouver style). Lack of references in the manuscript is sufficient for rejecting its publication. As a rule such manuscripts are returned back to the author (authors) for proper organization.
  6. References should be thoroughly checked and numbered; in the manuscript text references should be given in square brackets in strict compliance with the References organized in alphabetic order.
  7. References should first list publications of the Russian authors, including works by foreign authors, translated into Russian, followed by references, published in foreign languages, including works by local authors, translated into a foreign language. References should not include unpublished works and textbooks. Personal work is not recommended for inclusion in the References.
  8. A reference should list the first six authors. If there are more authors, the sixth author is followed by et al at the References.
  9. Reference to a citation should immediately follow the citation either in square or round brackets. If the square brackets are used, the first comes the citation number in the References, and then, after a comma, the page number with the letter "c". For example, [10, p. 81], or if the cited text reaches the next page [10, p. 81-82]. If the citation is enclosed in round brackets, it should be organized as follows: initials and surname of the author/authors, followed by the year of publication, and then - the citation number in the References in square brackets, followed by a comma, page/s. For example: (I.I. Petrov, 2012 [33, p. 29]).
  10. The manuscript text should not contain any citations not included in the References.
  11. Correct description of the sources listed in References is a guarantee that the cited publication will be counted when assessing scientific work of its authors and the affiliate organizations. Original papers are allowed to cite no more than 30 sources, literature reviews – up to 60. Besides fundamental works, References should contain publications for the last 5 years.
  12. Verification of references is the sole responsibility of the author.
  13. The number of illustrations (figures, tables, charts, diagrams) is limited to 10.
  14. All formulas should be thoroughly checked.
  15. Tables should only contain essential summarized and statistically processed data. All data must be interpreted in the text of the article. Uninterpreted data should not be included in tables.

All tables should be numbered and titled. All clarifications should be provided in notes (footnotes) rather than in titles.

  1. Figures. Letters, numbers, and symbols on figures should be clear and answer their purpose. Titles and detailed explanations should be given in the legends - not on the illustrations.

Interpretation of all illustrations in the article is mandatory.

  1. Full name and business contacts including e-mail of the author who is the focal point for the editors should be provided at the end of the manuscript.
  2. Information for the Russian Science Citation Index should be provided on a separate page. This information includes full names of all authors (in Russian and author’s transliteration), official title of the affiliate institutions (in Russian and English), accurate postal address (in Russian and English), institution’s postal code, job titles, science titles and degrees, and e-mail address.
  3. Publication is free of charge.
  4. Editors will not consider manuscripts that fail to meet the formatting and submission requirements of the Journal.
  5. ATTACHMENT 5 outlines procedures for retracting articles that have been already published.

ORGANIZATION OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES

Sample references (see below) specify reference style and format for the most common sources of literature and clarify symbols and identifications used to organize reference lists a la Vancouver style that seem unusual to the Russian speaking authors.

According to the international citation systems, bibliographic references are included in the translated into English part of the manuscript. Therefore, references should be presented both in the source language and in Roman alphabet. So, the author should provide References in two versions: in the source language (Russian language sources should be in Cyrillic alphabet and English language sources – in Roman alphabet), and then the same list in Roman alphabet for international databases duplicating all literature sources no matter whether there are any international sources among them.

All Russian language sources in the References should be formatted in the following order: authors’ names (author’s transliteration), manuscript title (transliteration), manuscript title (English translation in square brackets), journal’s title (transliteration), publisher (transliteration). Imprint data in digital format should be followed by indication of the source language (in Russian). Title of the journal should be highlighted in italics.

Example:

Запорожченко В.Г. Героин: исторический обзор. Профилактика заболеваний и укрепление здоровья 2000; 3(6): 31-36.

Zaporozhchenko V.G. Geroin: istoricheskiy obzor [Heroin: a historical review]. Profilaktika zabolevaniy i ukreplenie zdorov'ya 2000; 3(6): 31-36. (In Russian).

To develop References in Roman alphabet, editors of the Journal recommend using Translit transliteration system available from http://www.translit.ru. Access is free. Manual transliteration is not encouraged as fraught with errors.

Guides to transliteration.

  1. Go to http://www.translit.ru. Select BGN (Board of Geographic Names) in the Options box.
  2. Insert text of the reference in the main box and press the “In translit” button. The entire text of the reference is immediately transliterated.
  3. Paste the transliterated text into the References.
  4. Translate title (of the manuscript, book, proceedings) into English and paste it into the References. We recommend refraining from the use of electronic translation programs to ensure that the author’s implication of the title is accurately conveyed without distortion.
  5. Consolidate transliterated and translated texts to format the reference according to the stated above rules. Place of publication (city) should be transliterated as well (please, note that both capitals, i.e. Moscow and St. Petersburg, should be translated into English rather than transliterated). Introduce technical corrections if needed.
  6. The reference should end with the language source (in Russian)

SAMPLE ORGANIZATION OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES RUSSIAN LANGUAGE BLOCK

Note 1. The editors give pared examples: the first example samples organization of a reference for the Russian language References. The second one exemplifies organization of the same reference for the English language References.

Note 2. Part of a reference is presented in digital format if organized a-la Vancouver style.

Let’s take the following reference as an example: Сабгайда Т.П., Семенова В.Г., Иванова А.Е., Евдокушкина Г.Н., Секриеру Е.М., Никитина С.Ю. Полнота учета в медицинских свидетельствах о смерти состояний, приведших к смерти. Здравоохранение Российской Федерации. 2014; 58 (5): 4-8.

Part of this reference is displayed in a format that is uncommon for the Russian authors, i.e. 2014; 58 (5): 4-8. This is so called digital format and reads the following:

2014; - the year (date) of publication. Semicolon indicates that the dating is completed. Dating can be more complicated, for instance: 2002 Jul; (the year and month of publication) or 2002 Jul 25; (the year, month and day of publication). However, in both cases the semicolon shows that dating is completed.

58 is the volume. There can be no volume if the Journal is free from volumes. If the volume is followed by a colon not the journal’s issue, this means that the Journal is not numbered by its editors. Semicolon is followed by the number of pages on which the publication is placed inside and out.

(5): is the number of the journal. It is always displayed in round brackets even if there is no volume. Semicolon indicates that the number is followed by pages on which the publication is placed inside and out. The sample article above is placed on pages four to eight.

Note 3. Reference to books in digital format reads the following: if the letter “p” follows the number (436 p) it indicates the total number of pages in the cited source; if it precedes the number (P. 436), it refers to the page of the source on which the idea or conception cited by the author is placed.

If a reference is made to a book’s section of chapter (more than one page), number of pages indicate pages on which they are placed inside and out: P. 434-636.

Note 4. If you have difficulties formatting references please, refer to the examples provided on this webpage or apply for help to the editors of the Journal. Assistance is free.

References to a standard journal article

Note. The titles of the Russian language journals should be provided in full. Abbreviations can be used only if accepted in PubMed or Index Medicus. For example, JAMA or Br J Psych. Titles of the journals in the References should be highlighted in italics.

If an article has up to six authors, the reference should list them all.
