Requirements for the article formatting
The journal publishes original articles on the problems of the food industry and related branches in the English and German languages.
Along with experimental works, the journal publishes descriptions of fundamentally new research techniques and surveys on selected topics, reviews and news items.
Manuscripts submitted for publication should meet the following basic criteria: validity of data, clarity, conciseness, reproducibility of results, and compliance with manuscript requirements. In discussing the results, it is mandatory to set forth a sound conclusion on the novelty of the content submitted for publication.
The articles are accepted in the text editor Microsoft Word using the font Times New Roman, font size 10. The manuscript should contain not less than 10 pages type written with the single line spacing and having 2 cm wide margins from all sides. The article size also includesa resume, tables, figures, and references.
Each article sent to the journal should be structured as described below.
1. In the top left corner of the first page there is the UDC (Universal Decimal Classification) index.
2. Title of the article should be prepared in Russian and English languages. It is necessary to give a short, informative and precise name of the work (no more than 10 words).
3. Name(s) and initials of the author(s).
4. A full title of the institution where the paper was prepared, the city and the country, and postal code, contact details of the authors (e-mail). It is obligatory to specify the institution where each of author’s works appear.
5. Abstracts should be informative (not contain common words), content (reflecting the main content of the article and the results of research), structured (follow the logic description of the results in the paper), compact (200 to 250 words). Abstract should not be divided into paragraphs.
6. Keywords in Russian and English languages (not more than 10 words and phrases). They reflect: the subject of the study, the method, the object, specifics of this work.
7*. Introduction. A brief review of the problem dealt with in the study, and the validation of the approach taken are presented. References are given in square brackets and numbered (beginning with N 1) in order of their appearance in the article. With several references appearing in sequence they should be placed in the chronological order. The aim of the study should be clearly formulated.
8*. Objects and methods of researches
- for describing experimental work the section should contain a full description of the object of the study, consecutive steps of the experiment, equipment, and reagents. The original names of equipment and reagents should be specified, and the manufacturer’s name (company, country) should be given in parentheses. If a method is not widely known or considerably modified, please provide a brief description in addition to the reference;
- for presenting theoretical research the section should contain the tasks, approximations and assumptions, conclusions and solution of basic equations. The section should not be overloaded with intermediate data and the description of well-known methods (such as numerical methods of solving equations) unless the authors have introduced some novelty in them.
9*. Results and discussion
- the section should provide a concise description of experimental and / or theoretical data. Rather than repeating the data of tables and graphs, the text should seek to reveal the principles detected. It is recommended to use the past indefinite verb tense in describing the results. The discussion should not reiterate the results. This section should be completed with a major conclusion that answers the question specified in the introductory part of the article.
* In case of surveys these sections are not needed to be entitled. The contents may present analytical survey of the problem chosen and give the widest reflection of existing points of view and data connected with the theme. The article should necessarily contain the grounds for the problem timeliness and the author's conclusion on prospects of the approaches given for the solution of the problem analyzed.
Each table is to consist of not less than three columns and have a number and a title. The journal publishes black-and-white photographs and diagrams.
Recommendations for typewriting formulae: Mathematical equations forming a separate line should be printed in the MathType formula editor as a whole.
It is not allowed to combine a table, a text and an inserted frame within the same unit. For the equations printed in the MathType it is necessary to keep to the standard style of symbols and indices, their size and placing. Forced manual changing of individual symbols and formula elements is not allowable!
10. Conclusions and recommendations.
11. Acknowledgements. If necessary, include the names of organizations that funded the work and grants, at the end of section.
They should be formatted according to the common standard. The list of papers is typed on a separate page in order of their appearance in the text. All authors of each cited paper are indicated. If there is an English version of the paper it is necessary to refer to it, indicating the DOI.
For cited journal articles — names and initials of all authors, name of the article, name of the journal ( for foreign journals it is necessary to keep to the CASSI ), year, volume, number, page.
For cited books — names and initials of the author(s), name of the book, publisher , year, volume, number, part, chapter, page.
For cited collections of articles, abstracts; conferences, symposiums, etc. – the author(s), name of the work, name of the collections (conference, symposium), city (place of holding), publisher, year, volume, number, the paper's first page.
References to web resources are to be given in the text.
It is not recommended to link to publications that are not always available. These include institutional regulations, state standards, technical requirements, unpublished works, proceedings of conferences, dissertation abstracts, dissertations.
It is not recommended to use more than three Internet sources, as well as literature, since the publication of which more than 10 years have passed.
Self-citation should not exceed 20-30% of the total number of quoted sources.
Absence of references to foreign authors and also to the cited papers of 2-3 year novelty reduces the chances of a manuscript publication. References should reflect the actual impact of representatives of different countries in the investigation of a particular problem.
