GUIDELINE FOR THE AUTHOR
The original scientific articles (i.e. the articles covered research results and conclusions and have not been published previously) are accepted for the publication in journals. The articles should comply with the following subjects of the journal: biology and biomedicine, history of science, formatted in accordance with the following requirements. The research should be of interest to the international scientific community. Articles not to meet the requirements will be rejected.
The articles are accepted in electronic format Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx formats), the file with the article should be named according to author’s surname. If there are several authors, the article file should be named according to the surname of the first author. All illustrations and tables are arranged in the text after the references to them, each illustration and graph is also arranged in separate files (.jpg, .cdr, .tiff, .eps, .xls formats).
The text is typed according to the next parameters: Times New Roman, 12pt size, line spacing 1.5, indention 10 mm, without word wrap. Size of margins is to be: top and bottom – 20 mm, left – 30 mm, right – 20 mm. The recommended length of the manuscript, including tables, figures and references – 15–20 typewritten pages of A4 size; brief communication – 5–10 typewritten pages, review – 6 typewritten pages. All pages should be numbered (page numbering should be from the title page).
Structure of the article
The title page should include the following structural elements:
Maximum title length is 10–12 words. Long title names as well as short title names are difficult to perceive.
The title name should be informative and concise, it should correspond to the scientific style of the text, contain keywords, that reflect the research topic (scope), content of the work. The title name should be clear for the reader and easy to search by search systems. Abbreviations and formulas should not been used.
The name of organization where the author works (if the author worked and conducted research in several organizations, it is preferable to specify these organizations), address, city and country. Each organization name should be specified in a new line. The counting number in superscript should be written before the organization name and after the author’s surname, that helps to relate the author with the organization.
Foreign partners and international databases make strict demands to annotations. The annotation should include description of the main subject, problem, object, goal of research, value of research results, and practical relevance of these results. The annotation should reflect new aspects of the scientific article in comparison with other correspondent articles (i.e. articles of the same topic and purpose). It is possible to use unstructured annotations in «Journal of the Belarusian State University. Biology». The abbreviations should be transcribed.
Key words are a semantic kernel of the article, they are main concepts and categories that describe the research issues. Key words help the readers to search the articles in electronic databases, so the key words should reflect the discipline (i. e. the field of scientific research), subject, goal and object of research.
Key words may be either separate words or phrases (singular number, Nominative case). It is suggested 5–7 key words in Russian and English languages, at most 3 key words in the key phrase.
In this section the author acknowledges colleagues who contribute to the research or express criticism to the article. Before acknowledge someone, the author should obtain the consent from the person whom the author wants to show appreciation.
Organizations and funds should be acknowledged for sponsorship, i.e. specify grants, contracts, etc., that helped in conducting research.

The article should consist of the following structural parts that are written boldface type.
Includes: urgency of research, correspondent literature review, stated problem, research aims and objectives.
The part describes methods and framework of research/experiment as to allow other scientists to re-conduct the results relying on the article as well as use materials, devices, equipment, study samples and research/experimental conditions.
The part covers actual results of the research (texts, tables, graphs, diagrams, formulas, pictures, images), interpretation of the results, including their relevance to research hypothesis, as well as limitations of the research and generalization of the results, suggestion on practical application and further research directions.
The part covers section summary. Duplication of wording from the sections should be avoided in the summary. The part can be included into the previous one.
Each source should have its counting number in the list.
– a book: name and initials of the author (if there are more than three authors, first three authors should be specified), book full title, place of publication, publisher, year of publication.
Example: 1. Euwals R., Dagevos J., Gijsberts M. et al. Immigration, integration and the labour market: Turkish immigrants in Germany and the Netherlands. Bonn : IZA, 2007.
– articles from the journals, collections, materials and conferences, etc.:
Example: 1. 4. Raijman R., Ophir A. The Economic Integration of Latin Americans in Israel. Can. Ethn. Stud. 2014. Vol. 46, No. 3. P. 77–102. DOI: 10.1353/ces.2014.0036..
