SCIENTIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR EXECUTION OF A PAPER
The paper should clearly indicate the relevance, scientific significance, research results and conclusions. Any borrowing of materials from other sources should be properly referenced, and the name of the source to which the author refers should be indicated in the list of references.
The paper should be written in a scientific style. The lexical composition of the scientific style is characterized by relative homogeneity and closeness; this is expressed, in particular, in the lesser use of synonyms. In the scientific style, there should be no colloquial vocabulary; it is also not characteristic of evaluativeness. Evaluation is used in scientific works to clarify the author’s thoughts and has a rational character. Scientific style of speaking is distinguished by the accuracy and logicality of thought, its consistent presentation and objectivity of treatment.
A scientific publication is one of the main results of a researcher’s activity. The material submitted for publication must be original, and not previously published in other print media. The paper should be written using predominantly modern scientific literature, and involve new concepts. The main purpose of the publication is to make the author’s work available to other researchers. The author indicates his/her priority in the chosen field of research by means of the publication.
In the introductory part, it is necessary to indicate the relevance and expediency of developing a scientific problem or task. It is required to reveal the problems under study and ways to solve them by analyzing and synthesizing information in the main part of the paper. The author also needs to justify the possible results and their reliability. The paper should analyze, compare and identify the most important and promising directions for the development of science (or scientific practice), its individual types of activities, phenomena, events, etc.
A scientific paper should be of problem nature, demonstrate different views of scientists on the development of scientific (practical) knowledge, and contain conclusions, generalizations, and summary data. In the final part, the author should summarize the results, formulate conclusions, recommendations and indicate possible directions for further research.
