Dear Authors!

As stipulated in the Rules of International bibliographic database SCOPUS, an article submitted to a scientific journal is to contain the list of bibliographical sources – References – being transliterated. Thus, two variants of References are to be made up. The first one is to comply with the requirements ДСТУ ГОСТ 7.1:2006 «Bibliographic record, bibliographic description. General requirements and rules», the second one – with the international standard given below. Given as a separate unit References are to duplicate the Ukrainian or Russian list regardless the usage of English sources. If the English sources have been used, they are rewritten in References. As to foreign bibliographical sources, unlike English ones, they are to be given in English or transliterated by means of Roman alphabet, not Cyrillic one.

Roman transliteration of the Russian and Ukrainian texts can be carried out here respectively http://translit.ru and http://litopys.org.ua/links/intrans.htm

  1. Characters «//» and «–» are to be removed from transliterated text beingreplaced with commas. Pay attention to the use of English quotation marks (“ ”) instead of traditional ones (« »).
  2. Each transliterated name of the bibliographic reference is to be in italics and extended by the English translation (the title of the article, book, journal, conference). In this case, the translation is taken in square brackets and placed immediately after the transliterated name.
  3. The place of publication is to be marked in full (for example, «Kyiv» not«К.»).
  4. All basic data (page indications, volume, issue, numbers) must be in English, not transliterated. Thus, instead of «s.» «p.» or «pp.» must be used (for example, 123 p. or рр. 1-12); and instead of «т.» (volume), «вип.» (issue) і «№» (number) - «vol.», «issue» and «no.» respectively.
  5. Roman numerals (for example, conference names) are to be replaced with words or Arabic numerals (Second or 2nd instead of II).
  6. It is not needed to specify the type of publication in the description of textbooks and tutorials. This information in References will go amiss.
  7. The description of the source is to contain the names of all authors, in no case reducing the list.
  8. The year of publication is transferred to the beginning of the description, placed immediately after the author’s last name in brackets (the most appropriate option).
  9. When describing electronic sources, it is mandatory to indicate the date of access to information.
  10. All sources listed in References are placed in Latin alphabet. For example: 1. Cole M. Cultural Psychology… 2. Vygotskii L.S. Psikhologiia iskusstva..., by contrast Ukrainian or Russian variants: 1. Виготський Л.С. Психологія мистецтва… 2. Коул М. Психологія культури…

Optional notations

  1. When specifying a publishing house, it is recommended to use «Publ.» after its name. If the name of the publisher has an officially registered translation into English, this option is indicated, in all other cases the transliterated name of the publishing house is given.
  2. The original language may be specified in brackets at the end of the bibliographic description of the source, for example: (In Russian), (In Ukrainian). Also it is possible to provide information on translation of the annotation into English, for example: (In Russian; abstract in English).

Some pieces of advice to the authors

  1. In the case of a reference to a bibliographic source in English, it is not necessary to translate it, first of all this applies to publications registered in international scientometric databases.
  2. If the Ukrainian-language or Russian-language magazine has an officially registered name in English (usually this information is available on the website of the publication), then this name is to be written in References, not the own translation.
  3. If there is an opportunity to find the original publication of a foreign source, then it is necessary to give its description.
  4. When describing the publications without authors (collections, collective monographs), it is permitted to name one, maximum two editors of the publication instead of authors’ surnames.
  5. It is permitted not to transliterate titles of dissertations, patents, reports, legislative and normative documents, and other non-standard documents for quoting indexes, providing only their English translation. However, in brackets it is necessary to indicate the language of the original publication, for example: (In Russian) or (In Ukrainian).
  6. For unpublished documents, you can make a brief description indicating in brackets (Unpublished) if the source has an author; or (Unpublished Source) or (Unpublished Report) if there is no author.
  7. If the publication has doi, it is to be indicated at the end of the description of the source.
