Abstract

The abstract design sample in Russian

Иванов А.А. (Ростов-на-Дону). Доно-кубано-украинские отношения в 1917-1918 годах

Ключевые слова: казаки, взаимоотношения, Дон, Кубань, Украина.

Статья посвящена взаимоотношениям между образовавшимися на Юге России в 1918 году казачьими государственными образованиями и Украиной на основе общей борьбы с Советской властью. Указывается, что решающее влияние на эти взаимоотношения оказал фактора присутствия германских войск на территории Украины и Дона.

Abstract design sample in English

A. Ivanov (Rostov-on-Don). The  Relationships Between the Don and Kuban Cossacks and Ukraine State on 1917-1918

Key words: Cossacks, relationships, Don, Kuban, Ukraine.

The article is devoted to the relationships between the Don and Kuban Cossacks states, which appeared in Southern Russia on 1918, and Ukraine State on the foundation of the common straggle against the Soviet Power. At first, when the Don Cossacks and Ukraine were under the French and British leadership, they fought together against the Bolsheviks. Then the Ukrainian government changed its foreign policy for Germany and tried to occupy the part of Don Territory. The interaction between Don Cossacks and Ukraine stopped. Some monthes later the German troops occupied the Ukraine and reached the Don region. The Don Cossacks tried once more to unite the powers against the Bolsheviks. They wanted the new Ukranian government to become their ally in common straggle. Therefore, the Kuban Cossacks did. The decisive influence of German troops, which were situated on the Ukraine and Don territories, is shown in the article. The Don Cossacks could organize the allied relations with the Ukrainian government for the whole 1918 year. The Kuban Cossacks could not organize such relations with the Ukraine, because they had to fight against the Bolsheviks on the Kuban Territory together with the Volunteer army, and this army counted itself the enemy of the Germany.

The annotations in English should be:

  • Original (should not be a calque of the Russian-language annotation with literal translation);
  • Informative (should not contain common words);
  • Meaningful (should reflect the main content of the article and the research results);
  • Structured (should follow the logic description of the results in the article);
  • "English" (should be written in good English);
  • Compact (should stay within the volume of 100 - 250 words);
  • The text should be connected using the word "therefore", "more", "like", "as a result", etc. («Consequently», «moreover», «for example», "the benefits of this study», «as a result» etc.), or isolated stated points should flow logically from one another;
  • The active voice is in preference to the passive voice, that is, "The study tested", but not "It was tested in this study" (which is a common mistake of annotations in Russian);
  • The structure of annotation, resembling the structure of the article, including an introduction, goals and objectives, methods, results, conclusion (Conclusions) would be an asset.

Conclusions may be accompanied/attached by recommendations, estimates, suggestions, hypotheses described in the article. The information contained in the title of the article, should not be repeated in the text of the author's resume.

One should avoid the unnecessary introductory phrases (eg, "the author of the article considers ...").

Structured author’s resume sample

Purpose: Because of the large and continuous energetic requirements of brain function, neurometabolic
dysfunction is a key pathophysiologic aspect of the epileptic brain. Additionally, neurometabolic dysfunction has many self-propagating features that are typical of epileptogenic processes, that is, where each occurrence makes the likelihood of further mitochondrial and energetic injury more probable. Thus abnormal neurometabolism may be not only a chronic accompaniment of the epileptic brain, but also a direct contributor to epileptogenesis.
Methods: We examine the evidence for neurometabolic dysfunction in epilepsy, integrating human studies of metabolic imaging, electrophysiology, microdialysis, as well as intracranial EEG and neuropathology.

Results: As an approach of noninvasive functional imaging, quantitative magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) measured abnormalities of mitochondrial and energetic dysfunction (via 1H or 31P spectroscopy) are related to several pathophysiologic indices of epileptic dysfunction. With patients undergoing hippocampal resection, intraoperative 13C-glucose turnover studies show a profound decrease in neurotransmitter (glutamate-glutamine) cycling relative to oxidation in the sclerotic hippocampus. Increased extracellular glutamate (which has long been associated with increased seizure likelihood) is significantly linked with declining energetics as measured by 31P MR, as well as with increased EEG measures of Teager energy, further arguing for a direct role of glutamate with hyperexcitability.
Discussion: Given the important contribution that metabolic performance makes toward excitability in brain, it is not surprising that numerous aspects of mitochondrial and energetic state link significantly with electrophysiologic and microdialysis measures in human epilepsy. This may be of particular relevance with the self-propagating nature of mitochondrial injury, but may also help define the conditions for which interventions may be developed.

The articles’ scientific review procedure

Upon receipt of the manuscript the editoial staff checks the sent materials to meet the formal requirements specified on the journal's website, and the identity of the printed and electronic versions of the article. If the article does not correspond to the formal requirements, the author receives comments by e-mail, and the article is not considered until the elimination of all technical deficiencies.

When performing the formal requirements the article obligatory undergoes two steps of review: internal, by the members of the editorial board and external, one-sided anonymous ("blind") by especially engaged reviewers. The reviewing provides for a minimum of two reviewers, identified by the members of the editorial board. Reviewers may not be supervisors of the degree candidates and department staff, in which the author works.

The works of the academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences are published without reviews.

The internal review provides an expert opinion on the following essential criteria:

  • problem, clearly stated in the title of the article;
  • compliance of the the article's title with its content;
  • reflection of the degree of elaboration of the stated problem in the available scientific studies;
  • formulation of goals and objectives of one's own research;
  • grounding of the relevance of the chosen topic and the nature of the factual material of the concucted research;
  • validity of the author's thesis;
  • sufficiency of the scientific apparatus;
  • scientific novelty and practical significance of the achieved results;
  • presence in the conclusions of the increment of the scientific knowledge in contrast to the actual array of knowledge on the issue.

Review term - from 3 to 20 working days from receipt of the print version of the article to the editor.

On the results of the review authors are informed by e-mail.

The review originals are stored in the editorial office for at least 5 years from the date of publication of the article.

Upon receipt of the negative reviews, the editors reserve the right not to publish the article.

According to the results of the scientific testing the article can be sent to the author for revision. The second reviewing of the revised material is carried by the same reviewer or by members of the editorial board. The decision to publish the articles is accepted at a meeting of the editorial board.

The editors provide mandatory submission of review at the request of the authors of manuscripts in scanned form by e-mail, as well as to the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles at the request of the Expert boards in a specified form.
