5. Further, the bureau of the editorial board determines for the article a reviewer from among the members of the editorial boardб or an authoritative scientist in the relevant scientific field:
• reviewers should be well-known experts in the field of the submitted manuscript and have publications in this field of research (preferably for the last 5 years).
6. After expert evaluation of the scientific article, the reviewer may:
• recommend the article for publication;
• recommend the article for publication after its revision by the author, taking into account the comments and suggestions made;
• do not recommend the article for publication indicating the reason.
The editors recommend that reviewers use a standard form of review developed by the editorial board when reviewing articles.

Requirements for the design of a scientific article

1. Scientific articles accepted for consideration must be from 10 pages of text, paper format – A4, page orientation – portrait, margins on all sides – 20 mm, line spacing – single, font size – 11, typeface – Times New Roman, paragraph indent – 1 cm.

2. The structure of a scientific article:
• UDC (alignment on the left edge, bold font). You can determine the UDC code by following this link:
http://www.udcsummary.info/php/index.php?lang=uk&pr=Y;
• Article title (in English, centered, bold, capital letters). Must concisely inform about its content (up to 12 words) and be interesting for scientists and professionals;
• Author’s surname and initials (in English, centered, bold font); academic degree, position, name of the department or place of work;
• ORCID for each of the authors of the article;
• Official name of the organization, city, state (in English, centered, italics);

It should be concise, without unnecessary words, reflect the main content of the article, structured and written in high-quality English (font size – 11, italics, line spacing – single). Compositionally, the abstract can be built on the principle of IMRAD (Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion): 1–2 sentences about the relevance of the research problem; a brief description of research methods; main results (specific facts); specific conclusions and prospects for further research (1 sentence). The content of the annotation should be clear without reading the main text of the article. It is necessary to use an Active Voice, not a Passive (“The study tested”, not “It was tested in this study”).
Keywords: 4–6 words (phrases) that reflect the content of the article (font size – 11, italics, line spacing – single)
The abstract in Ukrainian and English should be identical in content and design.

Requirements for the presentation of the main sections of the article:

Relevance (Introduction) should reflect the relevance of the scientific problem with the citation of facts known in the world literature with an indication of still unresolved aspects of the issue.
Analysis of recent researches and publications. It is desirable to analyze the scientific facts from foreign and domestic English-language publications for the last 5 years. References to literary sources in the text of a scientific article should be given in parentheses as follows: (Surname, year), for example one author – (Putchkov, 2013), two authors – (Peter & Prince, 2018), three or more authors – (Lonappan et al., 2016; Lu et al., 2017; Sarkar et al., 2017). In the end, the main task of scientific research is briefly formulated in the form of Purpose or hypothesis of the article.
Materials and methods of research – describes in detail the study scheme, conditions, and location of the experiment, animal selection criteria, basic research methods and techniques (with reference to the original source), reagents and devices (the firm, model, and country of manufacture are specified), compliance with the European Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals used for Experimental and other Scientific Purposes. This section should contain the most comprehensive information for further possible reproduction of the published results. Finally, information on methods of statistical data processing is provided.
Results of the research and their discussion – the obtained results of research and their analysis with the given comparison concerning the known facts (it is desirable for the last 5 years) are noted. The requirements for this section are general, as for all international scientific journals.
Tables and figures by volume should not exceed 30% of the text. Images must be available for editing. References to a table or figure should not be given as a single sentence.
Conclusions and future perspectives. It is necessary to present specific results of the analysis (preferably as a single paragraph up to 10 sentences) and prospects for further research.
Acknowledgments (if necessary!) Are given after the conclusions before the bibliographic references.
References (list of used sources) is given at the end of the scientific article, at least 20 sources, preferably foreign and domestic English-language and for the last 5 years, in alphabetical order (font size – 11, line spacing – single), without numbering, in English (with transliteration in the case of Ukrainian or Russian titles), which is formed according to the international standard APA (American Psychological Association) style (for placement of manuscripts in international databases). To facilitate the work on the design of sources according to this standard, it is recommended to use the link https://slovnyk.ua/translit.php. Transliteration of Ukrainian symbols must be carried out in accordance with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers from January 27, 2010, № 55, and Russian – according to the BGN/PCGN system.
