The introduction provides a brief overview of relevant data, a critical assessment of the literature related to the problem under consideration, a justification for the novelty and significance of the study in a global sense (not only in terms of a given city or country), identifies unresolved issues and sets clearly formulated goals and objectives that explain further study. Each keyword of the article should be reflected in the introduction. It is recommended to avoid lengthy analyzes and lengthy historical excursions.
The “Material and Methods” section should contain: where and when the study was conducted; criteria for inclusion and exclusion of patients, experimental animals…; description of the study method (cohort, prospective, randomized drug trial, retrospective, observational series); a detailed description of a new medicine, method, modification, experiment, surgical intervention in a certain sequence; A brief description of the Standard Operating Protocol (SOP).
It is strongly recommended that you follow the CONSORT Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials, which can be found at
Methods published earlier must be accompanied by references: the author describes only changes related to the topic.
Works presenting the results of scientific research must use modern methods of statistical data processing, which must be described in the “Material and Methods” section of the article.
Mandatory in statistical analysis: sample size calculation based on statistical power; determination of normality of distribution according to Kolmogorov-Smirnov or Shapiro-Wilk; detailed presentation of logistic or linear regression analysis models (determinants and covariates); statistical package and version.
Presentation of results and discussion in one section is not allowed.
Results should be clear and concise. Data should be presented in absolute numbers and percentages, and the 95% confidence interval (95 CI%) and p value should be provided. Error bars are required on all experimental and computational data points, with an explanation in the text of how these errors were established.
The Discussion provides a compelling explanation of the results and demonstrates their significance. In the case of computational studies, the results obtained should be compared with information from published experimental work, if possible.
When submitting experimental work for publication, you should be guided by the “Rules for carrying out work using experimental animals.” In addition to the type, sex and number of animals used, authors must indicate the methods of anesthesia and methods of killing the animals used during painful procedures. It is necessary to indicate whether the given numerical values are primary or derived, provide the limits of accuracy, reliability, confidence intervals, estimates, recommendations, accepted or rejected hypotheses discussed in the statistics

12.5 Design of reviews. A review article should be identified by the authors as (literature review) after the title of the article. It is advisable that reviews be compiled in accordance with international recommendations for systematic literature search methods and standards. Abstracts of review articles should contain information on literature search methods in the databases Scopus, Web of Science, MedLine, The Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Global Health, CyberLeninka, RSCI and others. Keywords for review articles should include the word “review.”

The manuscript may be accompanied by a dictionary of terms (unclear, which may cause difficulty for the reader to read). In addition to generally accepted abbreviations of units of measurement, physical, chemical and mathematical quantities and terms (for example, DNA), abbreviations of phrases that are often repeated in the text are allowed. All letter designations and abbreviations introduced by the author must be deciphered in the text the first time they are mentioned. Abbreviations of simple words are not allowed, even if they are often repeated. Doses of medicines and units of measurement of physical quantities must be indicated in the SI system. In decimal fractions a comma is used: 0.35. The letter “ё” should not be replaced with “e”.

12.8 Author’s summaries. The author’s abstract for the article is the main source of information in domestic and foreign information systems and databases indexing the journal. The resume should present only the essential facts of the work and not contain general words. For original articles, a summary structure is required, repeating the structure of the article and including introduction, material and methods, results, conclusion. However: the subject, topic, purpose of the work are indicated if they are not clear from the title of the article; It is advisable to describe a method or methodology for carrying out work if it is novel or of interest from the point of view of this work. The resume should begin with the information contained on the title page. The text volume of the author’s summary should be strictly from 200 to 250 words.
The summary should be accompanied by several keywords or phrases that reflect the main topic of the article and facilitate the classification of work in computer search engines. Keywords are listed separated by semicolons. At the end of the listing there is a period.
The summary and keywords must be presented in both Russian and English. Keywords in English should be taken from Medline’s organized dictionary (MeSH, EMtree…). When translating the authors’ surnames, it is recommended to transliterate them in the same way as in previous publications or using the BGN (Board of Geographic Names) system, see the website English-language authors are listed in John Y. Smith format. For the organization(s), it is important that the official English version of the name is provided.

12.9 Requirements for drawings. General issues. Each image is submitted as a separate file. Files with graphic images must have logical names (Ivanov. Figure 1).

t Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), then it should be presented “as is” in the same format.
You should not send:

  • files that are formatted for display on the screen (for example, GIF, BMP, PICT, WPG); they usually have low resolution and a limited range of colors;
  • very low resolution files;
    — three-dimensional images;
    — drawings previously published in other works of the authors. The editors reserve the right to check drawings for plagiarism via Google Images.

12.10 Captions for drawings and photographs. Captions for drawings and photographs. Captions for drawings and photographs are grouped together and given after the information for the RSCI. Each figure must have a general title and an explanation of all abbreviations. The captions to the graphs indicate the designations along the abscissa and ordinate axes and units of measurement, and provide explanations for each curve. The captions to the microphotographs indicate the staining method and magnification.

12.11 Design of tables. At the top right you need to indicate the table number (if there is more than one table), below is its name. Abbreviations of words in tables are not allowed. All numbers in the tables must correspond to the numbers in the text. Tables can be given in the text without being placed on separate pages.

12.12 Mathematical formulas. Mathematical equations should be presented as editable text rather than images. Variables should be denoted in italics. Equations should be numbered in order.

12.13 Bibliographic lists. In the journals of the Medicine Publishing House, the Vancouver citation style is used (in the bibliography, references are numbered not alphabetically, but as they are mentioned in the text, regardless of the language in which the work is given).
In original articles, it is advisable to cite no more than 40 sources, in literature reviews – no more than 60, in lectures and other materials – no more than 15. The minimum number of sources in the bibliography is 30. Bibliographic references in the text of the article are indicated by numbers in square brackets.
You must make sure that all references given in the text are present in the bibliography (and vice versa).
The bibliography should contain, in addition to fundamental works, publications over the past 5 years, primarily articles from journals, links to highly cited sources, including Scopus and Web of Science. Links must be verifiable.
Each scientific fact must be accompanied by a separate link to the source. If several scientific facts are mentioned in one sentence, a link is placed after each of them (not at the end of the sentence). In case of multiple references, they are given in chronological order [5-9].
Abbreviated names of journals should be given in accordance with the List of Title Word Abbreviations:
Links to online sources must be reliable and durable. At a minimum, you should provide the full URL and the date the link was made available. You should also give any other additional information, if known: DOI, names of authors, dates, links to publication sources, etc.
You should not refer to unpublished, retracted (withdrawn from print) articles. Self-citation is not allowed, except when necessary (no more than 3–5 references in a literature review).
You should not refer to dissertations, as well as abstracts of dissertations; it is more correct to refer to articles published based on dissertation research materials.
Documents (Orders, GOSTs, Medical and Sanitary Rules, Guidelines, Regulations, Decrees, Sanitary and Epidemiological Rules, Standards, Federal Laws) should be indicated not in the lists of references, but as footnotes in the text.
Bibliographic description of the book (after its title): city (where it was published); after the colon the name of the publisher; after the semicolon the year of publication. If the link is given to a book chapter: (authors); chapter title; after the dot, put “In the book:” or “In:” and the surname(s) of the author(s) or editor(s), then the title of the book and the imprint.
Bibliographic description of the journal article: author(s); article title; name of the magazine; year; volume, in parentheses the journal number, after the colon the numbers of the first and last pages. With a team of authors of up to 6 people inclusive, everyone is mentioned, with large teams of authors 6 first authors “et al.”, in foreign ones “et al.”); if editors are mentioned, after the surname of I.O., after a comma, “ed.” should be placed; in foreign languages, “ed.”
Taking into account the requirements of international citation systems, bibliographic lists are included in the English block of the article and, accordingly, must be given not only in the original language, but also in the Latin alphabet. Therefore, authors of articles must provide a list of references in two versions: one in the original language (Russian-language sources in Cyrillic, English-language in Latin), and in a separate block the same list of references (References) in the Roman alphabet for international databases, repeating in it all sources of literature, regardless

depends on whether there are foreigners among them.
When citing translated sources in References, you must cite the original.
If the list contains references to foreign publications, they are completely repeated in the list prepared in the Roman alphabet. Authors’ surnames and Russian-language names of sources are transliterated. The titles of articles, monographs, collections of articles, conferences are translated into English, indicating after the output data, which are given in numbers, its language (in Russian). The source name is in italics.
A list of references in Latin can be prepared using free access transliteration systems ( and Google translator. Manual transliteration is not allowed in order to avoid errors. Since various options for transliteration of surnames are possible, when preparing links to articles published in journals of the publishing house EKOlab JSC, it is recommended to use data from the sites or

12.14 Technology for preparing links using an automatic transliteration system and a translator.
On the website you can use a program to transliterate Russian text into Latin.
1) Enter the program. In the “options” window, select the BGN (Board of Geographic Names) transliteration system. We paste into a special field the entire text of the bibliography, except for the title of the book or article, in Russian and press the “transliterate” button.
2) Copy the transliterated text into the prepared References list.
3) We translate the title of an article, monograph, collection, conference, etc. using Google Translator. into English, we are moving it to the list that is being prepared. The translation certainly requires editing.
4) We combine descriptions in transliteration and translated ones, formatting them in accordance with accepted rules. In this case, it is necessary to disclose the place of publication (for example, Moscow) and, possibly, make minor technical corrections.
5) At the end of the link, (in Russian) is indicated in parentheses. The link is ready.
