The structure of the article:

 Introduction: statement and justification of the problem; relevance of research; analysis of recent researches and publications; defining the purpose and hypothesis of the study. The introductory part of the article should substantiate the essence of the problem that the author intends to solve, as well as its importance. This section should not take the form of an overview of research on the topic.

  • Research Methodology (Methods): description of the research procedure; sample description: number, gender, age and other characteristics of participants; methods and techniques with their description; possible errors of results. The description of the research methodology should give a clear idea of the objectivity of obtained results.
  • Results of the research (Results): description of the results (with tables and/or graphs); analysis of results. This section of the article can have an additional internal structure (substructure).
  • Discussion: summary; interpretation of the obtained results; their comparison with similar results of other researches on the article’s subject; restriction on the application of the author’s/authors’ conclusions; proposals on further research guidelines. In this part, it is necessary to provide reasonable support of all the conclusions.
  • Conclusions. This is the most important part of the article, a summary of theses that the author offers for professional discussion based on the results of the study. The author’s/authors’ task here is to prove the research’s importance and to interest readers.

  It is obligatory to mention the authors and sources of used or quoted materials (References).
