8. The list of references is given after the text of the article:

8.1.

The abstract to the article should reveal the article’s idea, relevance and scientific novelty. The informational openness of the abstract will make it easier for many authors to include their articles in the indexed databases and increase the author’s citations.

Abstract is a brief review of the bigger paper of a scientific nature. The author’s summary may be published independently from the main text, and therefore should be understood without reference to the publication itself.

The author’s abstract of the article is the main source of information in domestic and foreign information systems and databases, where the journal is indexed, as well as search engines.

Abstract in English is placed in the English-language block of information on an article downloaded in the English version of the journal’s web site and is being prepared for foreign abstract databases and analytical systems (citation indices).
