A  resume in English, Russian       and Ukrainian,  given after the article and big enough for understanding the main points of the article is a must!

    7.    Common cultural rules of text layout:

    -    After a sign of punctuation  ( but in no case before) there should be a space. This concerns  a full point, a comma,a colon, points of ellipsis, a semi-colon, a question mark  and  a mark of exclamation. A decimal comma  in numbers is not separated by a space and is an exception.

    -    A space is put to the left from a forward quote  and an opening bracket and to the right from  a backspark  and  a closing bracket  but in no way vice versa.

    -   An integral part            in decimals  is separated  from a fractional part by a comma but not a point.

    -    A new paragraph is made  by means  of paragraph formatting   of a word processor   ( for example, in the program    Microsoft Word  « Format >>   Paragraph >> First line» or by  moving  a scroll box  on the upper ruler). It is not allowed  to make a new paragraph  by a space key or by tabbing key.

    -    Text formatting by multiple pressing of a space key or tabbing key  is not allowed.

    -    A hyphen  and a dash should be differentiated.  A dash is longer  than a hyphen,  and the former is framed   by spaces; a hyphen does not have a space neither to the left nor to the right.

    -    Signs  «±», «=», «<», «>» should be separated from the text by spaces on both sides.

    -    References to literary sources  should be given in square brackets  (not in round  brackets or diagonal braces).

    -    Literals and variables, Latin terms  and organisms’ names should be given in italics, for example: t = 2,3 (but not t=2.3); «Investigations in vitro showed…»; «from  aerophilous  component  of facultative  normal   indestinal flora  Escherichia coli and Enterococcus faecium are the most important».

    -    Finally, it is necessary to observe grammar and punctuation rules.

    8.    The data in tables, the text  and illustrations  should not duplicate each other ( all  the more contradict each other).

    9.    The editors office reserves the right to decide against  the article if its content  or layout  does not meet the requirements for  authors or the subject of the journal.
