10.5 A plan for the construction of the text original articles.
The structure of original articles must correspond to the IMRAD format (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion). The plan for building the text of original articles should be as follows: introduction; materials and methods; results; discussion; conclusion, list of references, captions if there are drawings.
The introduction gives a brief overview of relevant data, critical appraisal of literature related to the problem, justification of the novelty and significance of the study globally (not only in terms of the city or the country), identifies the outstanding issues and put clear goals and objectives, explaining further study. Each keyword of the article should be reflected in the introduction. It is recommended to avoid long analyses and long historical excursions.
The section "Materials and methods" must include: where and when the study was performed; criteria for inclusion and exclusion of patients, experimental animals; method of study (cohort, prospective, retrospective, series of cases); a detailed description of the new method, modification, experimentation, surgical interventions in sequence; a short description of the Protocol (Standard Operating Protocol, SOP).
It is strongly recommended to follow the "unified standards for the presentation of results and tests of the expert group CONSORT" (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials), which can be found at the link: http://www.consort-statement.org/
The methods published earlier should be accompanied by links: the author describes only changes related to the topic.
In works, presenting the results of scientific research, modern methods of statistical data processing should be used, which should be described in the section of the article "Materials and methods".
Required in statistical analysis: calculating the sample size based on statistical power; determining the normality of the distribution by Kolmogorov-Smirnov or Shapiro-Wilk tests; detailed representation of logistic or linear regression analysis models (determinants and covariants); statistical package and version.
The presentation of results and discussion in the same section is not allowed.
The results should be clear and concise. The data should be presented in absolute numbers and percentages, and a 95% confidence interval (95 CI%) and the confidence level of differences p should be specified. Error Bars are required at all points in the experimental and calculated data, with an explanation in the text of how these errors were established.
The Discussion provides a convincing explanation of the results and shows their significance. The results obtained in computational research should be compared with information from published experimental papers, if possible.
When submitting experimental works to the press, follow the "Rules for conducting work using experimental animals". In addition to the type, gender, and number of animals used, authors must specify the methods of pain management used during painful procedures and methods of animal killing. It is necessary to specify whether the numerical values given are primary or derived, specify the limits of accuracy, reliability, confidence intervals, estimates, recommendations, accepted or rejected hypotheses discussed in the article.
10.6 Design of reviews.
The review article should be designated by the authors as literature review after the title of the article. It is desirable that the reviews comply with international recommendations on systematic literature search methods and standards. Summary of review articles should contain information about the methods of literature search in the databases Scopus, Web of Science, MedLine, the Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Global Health, CyberLeninka, RSCI, and others. The keywords of review articles should include the word "review".
The name of the systematic review should include the words "systematic review". For more information on how to compile reviews, see the PRISMA guide (Recommended reporting elements for systematic review and meta-analysis).
All terms and definitions must be scientifically reliable, and their spelling (both Russian and Latin) must correspond to the "Encyclopedic dictionary of medical terms" (2001, 2nd edition, ed.: V. I. Pokrovsky, "Medicine", http://www.twirpx.com/file/123175/). Medicinal products should be listed only in international non-generic names that are used first, then, if necessary, several trade names of drugs registered in Russia are listed (according to the information search system "Klifar-Gosreestr" [State register of medicinal products]).
It is desirable that the writing of enzymes conform to the Enzyme Nomenclature standard (http://www.chem.qmul.ac.uk/iubmb/enzyme/)
It is desirable that inherited or familial diseases conform to the international classification of inherited conditions in humans ("Mendelian Inheritance in Man" [http://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Omim]).
The names of microorganisms should be verified in accordance with the publication "Medical Microbiology" (ed. V. I. Pokrovsky http://www.webmedinfo.ru/medicinskaya-mikrobiologiya-pozdeev-o-k-pokrovskij-v-i.html).
The full Name of the authors mentioned in the text should correspond to the list of references.
The manuscript may be accompanied by a dictionary of terms (unclear, which may cause the reader difficulties when reading). In addition to common abbreviations of units of measurement, physical, chemical, and mathematical quantities, and terms (for example, DNA), abbreviations of phrases that are often repeated in the text are allowed. All letters and abbreviations entered by the author must be deciphered in the text when they are first mentioned. The abbreviations of single words are not allowed, even if they are often repeated. The doses of drugs and units of measurement of physical quantities must be specified in the SI system. Use a comma in decimals: 0.35.
The summary should state only the essential facts of the work, and should not contain General words. Original manuscripts must have a summary structure that follows the structure of the manuscript and includes an introduction, material and methods, results, and conclusion. However, the subject, topic, and purpose of the work are indicated if they are not clear from the title of the manuscript; the method or methodology of the work should be described if they are new or interesting from the point of view of this work. The length of the text of the author's resume should be strictly from 200 to 250 words. The summary should be accompanied with several keywords or phrases that reflect the main topic of the article and facilitate the classification of work in computer search engines. Keywords are separated by semicolons. Keywords in English must be taken from an organized Medline dictionary (MeSH, EMtree...). It is recommended that the authors ' surnames be transliterated in the same way as in previous publications, if they are not available - in accordance with their foreign passport or using the BGN (Board of Geographic Names) system, see the website http://www.translit.ru. In English, authors are indicated in the John Y. Smith format. For organizations, it is important that the official English version of the name is indicated.

Captions to drawings and photos are grouped together and indicated in Russian and English after the information for the RSCI. Each drawing should have a common title. The captions to the charts indicate the designations for the abscissa and ordinate axes and units of measurement, and provide explanations for each curve. Captions to microphotographs indicate the color method and magnification.
10.11 Table Layout.
The table number should be indicated on the top right (if there are more than one tables), and its name in Russian and English is given below. Abbreviations of words are not allowed in tables.
