Abstract in English (1800-1900 characters with spaces). In the abstract sections should be highlighted: aim, materials and methods, results, conclusions.
Keywords in English (10 words)
The main sections of the article:
The introduction should provide the reader with all the information (including reference character) necessary in order to understand your research, and reasons why you hold them. In the section of the “Introduction”, it is also necessary to provide a comparison of similar pharmaceutical systems in other countries.
This part of section of the article is to give an answer to the need for ongoing author’s research.
Thus, the section of the article «Case of research» aims to highlight the outstanding part of other scientists studied the problem and point to "niche" of research, not occupied by other scientists to this problem (of course, the answers to two questions formulated above).
ADVICE: You can use the electronic resources of open access scientific journals around the world from Cochrane Library. The search can be performed by keyword of your subjects in English.
It is necessary to highlight the unresolved parts of the investigated problem by other scientists and point out the “niche” of research not occupied by other scientists in this problem.
Important! Often, as a justification for the need for an author’s study, it is indicated that the subject (question) in the scientific literature is “not described” or “not described enough”. This in no way can be considered a reasoned justification. It is not enough to refer to the fact that “this problem has not yet been studied”, because it is possible that it does not need to be studied!
Aim of research. The formulation of aim of the research should be performed in such a way that it became clear how to fill in the "niche" research (i.e. to answer the question: "what needs to be done to bridge the gap of knowledge associated with the presence of pieces of total problems unidentified by other scientists?»).
The aim of research, formulated by the author, can be the formulation of Hypotheses and that the author wanted to prove or disprove.
2. Planning (methodology) of research
The section provides the scientific justification for the selection of materials (objects), research methods and the sequence of the experiment to achieve the goal.
3. Materials and methods
In this section of the article, it is necessary to describe in detail all the materials that were used in the study, indicating the source of receipt; equipment and methods (techniques) with which the research was conducted.
Materials and methods should be described in such detail that the study can be repeated.
This section should be structured in accordance with the following description of the results and their discussion.
Studies involving animals and humans
Clinical trial registration
Human biological samples
Publication of images of participants in human subject research
Studies involving human embryos, gametes, and stem cells
Experiments involving plants or microorganisms
Selection of medicinal plants
Applications and additional materialsAuthors who wish to publish electronic supplementary materials to their article (Excel files, images, audio and video files) can send these files along with the manuscript.
Results should be presented in a logical order, and it is recommended to give the results in order of importance, it is not necessary to use the order in which the experiments were conducted.
Conflict of interest
The authors declare that they have no conflict of interest in relation to this research, whether financial, personal, authorship or otherwise, that could affect the research and its results presented in this paper.
Acknowledgments (if any)

Requirements for graphical abstract
A graphical abstract is an image that appears alongside the text abstract in the contents. This is a single, concise, pictorial and visual summary of the main findings of the article.
A graphical abstract should allow readers to quickly gain an understanding of the take-home message of the paper and is intended to encourage browsing, promote interdisciplinary scholarship, and help readers identify more quickly which papers are most relevant to their research interests.
Authors must provide an image that clearly represents the work described in the paper. It could either be the superposition of several figures from the article or a figure that is specially designed for the purpose. Any postage stamps, currency from any country, or trademarked items should not be included in it. Graphical abstracts should be submitted as a separate file.
Requirements for graphical abstract:
- Image size: the minimum required size for the graphical abstract is 560 × 1100 pixels (height × width) with minimum resolution of 300 dpi. If you are submitting a larger image, please use the same ratio. Please note that your image will be scaled proportionally to fit in the available window.
