Metadata (summaries) are to be provided in the original language of the article and in English; (if the language of the article is English, then the metadata is in English and in Ukrainian).

If there are many abbreviations, a list with the explanation of each of them can be provided before the text of the article.
Introduction (the formulation of a scientific problem and its connection with important scientific or practical tasks, analysis of research, which initiated the solution of this problem and based on the author; the identification of previously unclaimed parts of the general problem that reveals this article). The text of the article should conform to the IMRAD format (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion). Thus the following sections must be highlighted: the introduction; the aim of the study; the source material and research methods; the research results; and the conclusions.
The purpose of the research (the goal should be to solve a problem or to acquire knowledge about it. The aim of the study is its final result; the task is to formulate questions which correspond to the purpose of the research. To achieve this goal, it is desirable to use words such as establish, identify, develop, and prove.)
Research material and methods. This section should be brief, but sufficient to enable other researchers to repeat the study; it should contain three subsections (additional units may be added if necessary):
Specify the number of participants, and the age and sports qualifications of the subjects. Please note that we have received informed consent from all the participants to participate in this experiment.
(2) Organization of the Research:
This summary should be brief, precise and logical (containing brief information about each step of the research, the duration and the steps involved in the experiment). Specify the devices, equipment, and the tests used.
(3) Statistical Analysis:
Under the subheading "Statistical Analysis", authors should explain which statistical methods have been used in the analysis of the data presented in the section "Research Results" and should justify their application. Statistical methods should be described in detail to ensure the verification of the results presented. The statistical values should be shown along with the data in the text, as well as in the tables and figures. At the end of the statistical analysis authors should indicate the level of significance and the statistical programs which were used.
We wish to bring to the attention of the authors that a simple enumeration of used methods of research is unacceptable.
The protocol for data collection, procedures, test parameters, measurement methods, and equipment should be described in sufficient detail to enable other scientists to reproduce the results. Reference must be made to the methods used. Little-known or substantially modified methods should be described in detail, and the names of the devices used should be accompanied by information about the manufacturer (name, city and country), indicated in brackets.
Providing information about participants in experiments (or patients) requires their formal consent. For research involving patients and volunteers, documentation of informed consent must be provided in the text of the manuscript. When children are involved, experiments must be preceded by the receipt of written consent from their parents, as we mention in this section. With respect to experiments involving human beings, reports should indicate whether the procedure was conducted in accordance with the ethical standards of the Responsible Committee on Human Rights (Experiments or Institutional Regional) or the Helsinki Declaration of 2008.
The editorial staff reserves the right to request any source data from authors at any stage during the review or publication process, including post publication. Refusing to provide the requested information may delay the publication or cancel the acceptance.
Research Results. A summary of the main research material with a complete justification of the scientific results obtained (the results of the research with the obligatory statistical processing of data should be presented in the form of tables, graphs, and charts.) The data displayed in the tables should be substantial, complete, and reliable. The titles of tables and the names of the graphs or diagrams should match their content. Research results should of necessity be analyzed.
Discussion. This section is considered to be the most important element of a scientific article. To the maximum extent, it needs to uphold the accuracy of the author's point of view, summing up and comparing the results of his own research and the data of other authors to confirm the various scientific hypotheses. It is necessary to explain the essence of the received data, to evaluate possible contradictions and unexpected results, and to offer further research options.
Conclusions. (This part includes a short formulation of the results of the research, a generalization of the topic, as well as prospects for future research. The conclusions should be concise, specific, and logical, corresponding to the purpose of the research and should be derived from the main content of the work).
After the text of the article should contain a patch list of sources used.
All sources given in the bibliography should be cited in the text of the article; otherwise the corresponding element should be deleted. If the article to which the link points has a digital identifier DOI (http://www.doi.org/index.html), it must be specified.
References should contain a sufficient number of recent sources (within the last five years) relevant to the research problem.
The list should include scientific articles of Ukrainian and foreign authors.
A reference to the authors' own work (self-citation) is allowed, but constituting no more than 12% of the total number of sources.
If the text is in Ukrainian or Russian, then the list of literature should consist of two parts: «Sources and Literature» and «References».
The list of references «Sources and Literature» is a bibliographic description of the sources used during the preparation of the article, executed in the original language and executed in accordance with DSTU 8302: 2015: Bibliographic link. General terms and conditions of assembly (http://lib.pu.if.ua/files/dstu-8302-2015.pdf).
However, if foreign-language sources appear on the list, they do not need to be translated into Ukrainian or Russian.
«References» is a duplicate list of references «Sources and Literature», formulated in accordance with the APA standard (http://www.apastyle.org/ in English (and/or using transliteration).
The names of Cyrillic sources are transliterated, with a translation placed afterward in square brackets.
