Author Guidelines

If your manuscript and figures are ready to submit according to the "Author Guidelines", please proceed directly to the Make a new submission.

To submit your manuscript, you need the following files:
1. Title page [Article title; Author names; Author affiliations; Author contributions; Corresponding author information; Information about the author (s): Author names; Bio Statement (e.g., department and rank); ORCID; e-mail; Author affiliations; сity, country];
2. A main document file (abstract, keywords, main text and references);
3. Author agreement form.

Manuscripts should be prepared following the general style guidelines set out in the Publication:
Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals.
EASE (European Association of Science Editors) Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles to be Published in English.
Accurate and clear expression of your thoughts and research information should be the primary goal of scientific writing. Remember that accuracy and clarity are even more important when trying to get complicated ideas across. Contain your literature review, ideas, and discussions to your topic, theme, model, review, commentary, or case. Avoid vague terminology and too much prose. Use short rather than long sentences. A sentence made of more than 40 words should probably be rewritten as two sentences. Avoid Adjectives and Adverbs. If jargon has to be utilized keep it to a minimum and explain the terms you do use clearly. Write with a measure of formality, using scientific language and avoiding conjunctions, slang, and discipline or regionally specific nomenclature or terms (e.g. exercise nicknames). Journal prefer authors to write in the active voice ("we performed the experiment...") as experience has shown that readers find concepts and results to be conveyed more clearly if written directly. We have also found that use of several adjectives to qualify one noun in highly technical language can be confusing to readers. Over the whole document, make the average sentence length 15-20 words. The editors reserve the right to make any final adjustments to the manuscript to ensure consistency within the journal.
Manuscripts should meet the general requirements.
Text should be one spaced, in Times New Roman, 10-point typeface. Margins: 2 cm at top, bottom, right, and left. Manuscript size: From 13000 characters.

Citing in the Text - Vancouver Style
In the Vancouver Style, a number is assigned to each reference as it is used. Even if the author is named in your text, a number must still be used. The original number assigned to the reference is used each time that reference is cited in the text. The first reference you cite will be numbered [1] in the text, and the second reference you cite will be numbered [2], and so on. If you cite reference number [1] again later in the text, you will cite it using the number [1].
Citing more than one reference at a time
• When citing more than one source at a time, the preferred method is to list each reference number separately with a comma between each reference:
[1, 2] (maximum 2 references; exception - 3)
Citing a reference multiple times
• If referring to a different page number, or other reference, within the source, use the following forms:
[3, pp. 5-10], [3, Ch. 2, pp. 6-21], [3, Fig. 1], [3, Sec. 4.5]

Title page

should carry:
• the article title (is the most important summary of a scientific article, should also include information on the scope of investigation);
• full names (first name, middle-name initials), and last names of all authors;
• authors' affiliations; if authors belong to several different institutions, superscript digits should be used to relate the authors' names to respective institutions;
• names, e-mail of the corresponding author should be given.
Authors are required to include information of responsibility in the manuscript that specifies the contribution of every author. Authorship should be considered if one has made substantial contributions to the conception, acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data, drafted or revised the work, approved the final manuscript, and willingness to take responsibility (ICMJE criteria).
People helping only in data collection, performing statistics, technical contributions, and data entry, or those who have obtained grants or head of the department should be all acknowledged but cannot be considered as authors unless they fulfill the ICMJE criteria.
We suggest the following kind of format (please use First Name Last Name to refer to each author’s contribution):
A – Study design;
B – Data collection;
C – Statistical analysis;
D – Manuscript Preparation;
E – Funds Collection.
Example 1:
Olga V. Ivashchenko1ABCDE, Sergii S. Iermakov2ABCD, Oleg M. Khudolii1ACDE
1Kharkiv National Pedagogical University, Ukraine

Example 2:
Wladyslaw Jagiello1ABCDE, Oleg Khudolii2ACDE
1Gdansk University of Physical Education and Sport, Poland 
2 Kharkiv National Pedagogical University, Ukraine

No names of co-authors will be published unless their contributions are indicated. Connect authors to contributions using alphabetic superscripts.


page should carry:
• Structured abstract (> 250 words), consisting of the following sections:
Background and Study Aim: should describe clearly the rationale for the study being done and the previous work relevant to the study. It should end with a statement of the specific question or hypothesis being addressed.
Material and Methods: mention the techniques used without going into extensive methodological detail, and outline the most important results. Include sample sizes for key experiments as appropriate.
Results: list basic results without any introduction. Only essential statistical significances should be added in brackets. Draw no conclusions.
Conclusions: provide the key-findings as clearly as possible. You may also include a brief, more general interpretation of the results and / or specific recommendations for future research.
• 5 to 6 key words (not from title).
• Glossary (up to 40 words as appropriate), referring both to key words and specialized terms, presenting the meaning, definitions or explanations of the words, phrases etc.
(Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Highlights, Acknowledgements, Glossary and References):


Should be comprehensible to the general reader. Should contain the hypothesis. Authors should briefly introduce the problem, particularly emphasizing the level of knowledge about the problem at the beginning of the investigation.


Material and Methods

The materials and methods section should be brief but sufficient to allow other investigators to repeat the research.
The Method section typically consists of three subsections: Participants, Procedure, and Statistical analysis.
You can choose to add other subsections if they can be justified.
Example. Ten healthy university students and staff members (8 women and 2 men), aged 18-24 years, volunteered to participate in the experiment. All were assigned to the same experimental task. In this experiment, informed consent was obtained from all participants.
The Procedure subsection is the second subsection,
- and it gives the reader a summary of each step in the execution of the research. This summary must be concise, precise, and logical. Do not burden the reader with too much detail but give enough so the reader can follow what is being done;
- and it tells the reader what equipment and tools you used to run your experiment and to acquire data.
Statistical analysis:
Within the subheading Statistical analysis: authors need to explain which statistical tests were used in their data analysis and the rationale for using those tests. Care must be taken to assure that: a) all tests used are listed in the Materials and methods under Statistical analysis, as well as b) that all tests listed are indeed applied in the study. From this section, every reader should be able to understand which test exactly was used for every comparison of the data presented with the Results section. At the end of the Statistical analysis, authors need to state the level of significance applied in their study and statistical program used.

Should describe clearly the selection of observational or experimental subjects including controls, such as age, gender, inclusion and exclusion criteria, (the circumstances for rejection from the study should be clearly defined), randomization and masking (blinding) method.
The protocol of data acquisition, procedures, investigated parameters, methods of measurements and apparatus should be described in sufficient detail to allow other scientists to reproduce the results. Name and references to the established methods should be given. References and brief description should be provided for methods that have been published but are not well known, whereas new or substantially modified methods should be described in detail. The reasons for using them should be provided along with the evaluation of their limitations. Names of chemicals and devices used should be followed by the information on the manufacturer (name, city, and country) set in parentheses. Please provide generic name, dose and route of administration.
The statistical methods should be described in detail to enable verification of the reported results. List the tests used. Relate each test to a particular data analysis. This should be repeated in the Results section. Statistical significances should be shown along with the data in the text, as well as in tables and figures. Provide exact p-values, with three decimal places.
Provide information on patients informed consent. Studies on patients and volunteers require informed consent documented in the text of the manuscript. Where there is any unavoidable risk of breach of privacy - e.g. in a clinical photograph or in case details - the patient's written consent to publication must be obtained and copied to the journal.
Information on approval of a Local Ethical Committee should also be provided. In reports on the experiments on human subjects, it should be indicated whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) or with the 2008 revision of the Helsinki Declaration.


Should concisely and reasonably summarize the findings. Restrict tables and figures to the number needed to explain the argument of the paper and assess its support. Do not duplicate data in graphs and tables. Give numbers of observation and report exclusions or losses to observation such as dropouts from a study. Report complications. The results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and illustrations related to the statements in the text by means of reference remarks. Do not repeat in the text all the data from the tables or graphs. Emphasize only important observations.


Should include interpretation of study findings, and results considered in the context of results in other studies reported in the literature. Do not repeat in detail data or other material from the Background or the Results section. Include in the Discussion the implications of the findings and their limitations, including implications for future research. The discussion should confront the results of other investigations especially those quoted in the text.


Should be linked with the goals of the study. State new hypotheses when warranted. Include recommendations when appropriate. Unqualified statements and conclusions not completely supported by the obtained data should be avoided.


Present particularly important information the authors would like to point out.


List all contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship, such as technical assistants, writing assistants or head of department who provided only general support. Describe their role. Financial and other material support should be disclosed and acknowledged.

Non-English language sources
Use of DOI is highly encouraged. When referencing a document with a DOI in Vancouver style, the information regarding the doi should be given in the following format:


Tables must be provided in an editable format in order for them to be typeset e.g. .docx/doc or .xlsx.
Numbering. Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and should be cited in the text by number, e.g., "see Table 1." Each table must be mentioned at least once in the text, and in proper numerical order. In the printed paper, the placement of tables will be determined by their first mention in the text.
Format. Every table should have a concise title (less than a sentence); more extensive descriptions or secondary information should be incorporated in a note to the table. All tables are typeset with horizontal rules only; no vertical rules are used. Tables should not contain empty rows. Each column, including the first, must have a heading. Column headings should label the entries concisely (one or two words); the first letter of each word is capitalized. Units of measurement should be given in parentheses immediately below the column headings, not listed with the data in the body of the table.
Introduce figures and tables in your text in logical places and in logical ways. Tables should not duplicate results presented elsewhere in the manuscript (e.g. in graphs). All the necessary explanations and a legend of the abbreviations have to be provided.
Data should be organized so that related elements read downward, not across. The data arranged in columns should correspond to the time sequence of their collection when read from left to right. Each column heading for numerical data should include the unit of measurement applied to all the data under the heading. Choose suitable SI units, so that the values given in the table should fall within the range of 0-999. Large numbers can be expressed in smaller units with appropriate column headings.
Identify statistical measures of variations such as standard deviation and standard error of the mean. Do not use internal horizontal and vertical rules. Be sure that each table is cited in the text. If you use data from another published or unpublished source, obtain permission and acknowledge them fully.


Created in the Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, or 2011 default equation editor pose problems because the MathML mapping of this editor is not 100% accurate. Please use MathType, to create equations.
Long equations should be set off from the text and numbered sequentially. After an equation is introduced, refer to it by number (e.g., "Eq. 1," "Eqs. 3 and 4").
If some or all of your equations are simple (on a single baseline), use normal text and fonts:
E(t) • r = D+[exp(-it)] + D-[exp(it)] (1)
Complex equations should be embedded using standard plug-ins like Mathtype or the Word Equation Editor:
If the paper includes many equations or schemes, these can be collected in a table of equations, which we can display as a boxed figure.


General figure guidelines:
• Figures should be numbered in a single series that reflects the order in which they are referred to in the text.
• Figure titles should be provided in the main manuscript, not in the graphic file.
• Figure keys should be incorporated into the graphic, not into the legend of the figure.
• Please note that it is the responsibility of the author(s) to obtain permission from the copyright holder to reproduce figures (or tables) that have previously been published elsewhere.
• Axis scales and labels. The horizontal (X-axis) and vertical (Y-axis) axes require scales and labels that identify the variables being graphed and the units of measure.
• Color in Figures - journal encourages the use of color to enhance the clarity and aesthetic appeal of figures.
• Figures prepared as .doc/.docx files may not be accepted.
• Graphics downloaded from the Web are not acceptable for print. Web graphics, usually in GIF or JPEG format, have a resolution of only 72 dpi, which does not meet the standard for publication.

Figures for peer review

At initial submission, figures can be provided within the manuscript or as separate files. Full resolution figure files are not required at initial submission.

Figures for publication

You must supply each complete figure as a separate file upload.

1. Fonts for your figures: Sans-serif fonts like Calibri, Arial and Helvetica are good choices for figures We prefer the use throughout of a 'standard' font, preferably 10-point Calibri.
2. Line art, graphs, charts and schematics. For optimal results, you should supply all line art, graphs, charts and schematics in vector format, such as EPS or AI. Please save or export it directly from the application in which it was made, making sure that data points and axis labels are clearly legible.
3. Photographic and bitmap images. Supply all photographic and bitmap images in a bitmap image format such as jpg, or psd. Please do not supply Word or Powerpoint files with placed images.
4. Graphs/charts can also be provided as separate Excel files.
Figures that do not meet these standards will not reproduce well and may delay publication until we receive high-resolution images.

Units of Measurement

Measurements of length, height, weight, and volume should be reported in metric units (meter, kilogram, or liter) or their decimal multiples. Temperatures should be given in degrees Celsius. Blood pressures should be given in millimeters of mercury.

Abbreviations and Symbols

Use only standard abbreviations. Avoid abbreviations in the title and abstract. The full term which an abbreviation stands for should precede its first use in the text unless it is a standard unit of measurement.
