Graphic elements (tables and figures) should be informative and of high quality.


  • All the tables should have title.
  • Table should be mentioned and addressed in the article text (see. Table 1 etc.).

Addressing references in the article text

If you cite a source that is in the reference list, insert its number inside the square brackets. If there is a specific page you want to address in this resource, separate it by coma.

Example: «... on the available cognitive mechanisms [5, P. 206].»


References should include at least 10 sources.

References should be formatted according to Russian GOST 7.0.100-2018

Author IDs

In order to make it easier for authors to control the list of their publications, we recommend registering in the Science Index system of the Russian Science Citation Index (instruction), as well as getting an ORCID (instruction).
