The article should not only introduce a reader with a problem, but it also should provide useful information in the form of appropriate conclusions and results. As the results can be presented formulas, coefficients, practical advice, etc. For example, if the author of the publication has developed a new mathematical model, it is desirable to present the results of calculations using this model.

It is mandatory the article should be completed by findings or conclusions.

Typically, at the end of the article should be a list of references, which are referenced in the text.

The following structure of the article is considered to be optimal:

“Introduction” indicating the purpose of scientific research, “Problem Statement”, “Results”, “Findings or conclusions”, “Literature”, “Appendix” (where, if necessary, may be presented mathematical calculations, not included in body text, etc.).

The decision on publishing is taken by the editorial board of the corresponding journal series and approved by the editorial board of the journal.
