References are given in a single list at the end of the manuscript in the order in which they appear in the text. Bibliographic references in the text of the article are given in square brackets. If a certain block of text is cited then its source number given in the reference list and the page of the citation should be indicated. Information is separated with comma. E.g., [10, с. 81].
DO NOT USE FOOTNOTES AS REFERENCES
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COMPLETENESS OF THE LITERATURE REVIEW
The reference list should include 20 sources at least. This requirement provides that previous scientific achievements were used for research in reasonable extent.
The reference list should be performed in accordance with the journal requirements using Chicago Manual of Style format.
Minimum half of the references should be presented in one of the leading citation indexes:
- Web of Science: http://ip-science.thomsonreuters.com/mjl/;
- Scopus: http://www.scimagojr.com/journalsearch.php;
- Russian Science Citation Index: http://elibrary.ru/titles.asp.
When choosing the source it is recommended to consider its openness. It is desirable that papers were available online (including printed sources). The most accurate identification of articles in journals can be achieved if one indicates a unique identifier which is used by most foreign journals for identification of their article (Digital Object Identifier – DOI). If the article is indexed in DOI system, it is advisable to indicate its identifier in the reference list.
It is advisable that references should be relevant. The recommended quantity of contemporary references (not older than 10 years) on articles from scientific journals is 15 at least.
References to author's publications should be limited - no more than 30% in list.
