The main purpose and objectives of the author`s summary (AS)
The author`s summary (AS) is a brief summary of a larger volume of work that has a scientific character. The author`s summary can be published independently, in isolation from the main text and, therefore, must be understandable without referring to the publication itself.
According to the AS of the article, the reader should understand the essence of the research. By AS, the reader should determine whether to refer to the full text of the article for more detailed information that interests them.
The AS to the article is the main source of information in domestic and foreign information systems and databases that index the journal.
The AS in Russian is the basis for preparing the author`s resume in English, but it should not be translated verbatim (calque), and follow the basic rules and style of the English language.
Structure, content and scope of the author`s summary (AS)
The AS should state the essential facts of the work, it should not exaggerate or contain material that is missing from the part of the publication.
An AS, that repeats the structure of the article and includes an introduction, goals and objectives, methods, results/discussions, and conclusions is welcome to the journal.
The results of the work are described very accurately and informatively. The main theoretical and experimental results, actual data, found relationships and patterns are presented. Preference is given to new results and data of long term value, important discoveries, conclusions, that refute the main theories, as well as data that, in the author`s opinion, are of practical importance.
Conclusions can be accompanied by recommendations, estimates, suggestions and hypothesis, described in the article.
The information contained in the title of the article should not be repeated in the text of the AS.
Avoid unnecessary introductory phrases ( for example, “the author of the article…”)…”)
The text of the AS should use the significant words from the article. The text of the AS should be laconic and precise, free of secondary information, unnecessary parenthetic words, common and unimportant formulations.
The text should use the words “consequently”, ‘moreover”, “for example”, “the benefits of the study”, “as a result”, and so on;), the stated provisions should follow logically one from the other. Use an active, not a passive voice, i.e., “The study tested,” (“It was tested in the study.”).
Keywords (author`s keywords) should reflect the main content of the article. If possible, do not repeat the terms of the title and annotation, use terms from the text of the article, as well as terms that define the subject area of the research and include the subject area of research and other important concepts, that will facilitate and expand the search by means of the information-retrieval system .
The scope of annotation is 200–250 words and keywords (6–8 words)
Remember: you are writing for an international audience.
