Author Guidelines

To be accepted for publication a research article must suit the journal’s profile, be original and adequately shaped. Its structure (according to the requirements set forth in the Resolution № 7-05/1of the Presidium of the HigherCertifying Commission of Ukraine passed on 15 Jan. 2003) must include: an outlay of the problem in a general mode and its relevance to basic scientific and practical tasks; an analysis of main studies and publications that launch the solution of the problem highlighted in the article; a formulation of the aims and tasks of the article; an exposure of the main material of the investigation with a full grounding to its scientific results; conclusions from the study and ideas for further research in the chosen direction.

         Besides, such elements are obligatory in a submitted article:

1. An index of the Universal Decimal Classifier (UDC) that is placed in a separate line in the left upper corner of the first page before the title. Indexing is done by the author.

2. The title of the article that is given in three languages: Ukrainian, English and Russian.

3. Relevant data about the author (authors) – surname, first name and patronymic, scientific degree, position in jobs and name of educational (research) institution or other place of work. These are written in three languages: Ukrainian, English and Russian.

4. Abstract. This is given in Ukrainian, English and Russian. The Ukrainian and Russian versions must characterize the main topic as well as state problems, aims and general results. For requirements to the English version see further.

5. Key-words are words from the text of the article that carry a defining load to ease information search. Such words are given in a nominative case and range in number from three to ten.

6. A List of sources must be supplied STRICTLY in the mode DSTU 8302:2015. Examples registration list of sources used for this standard can be found here.

7. For variants of shaping in order sources written in the Latin ABC see further.

The article must not exceed the size of 40000 typographical units. Bigger articles can be published as split to be continued.

Tables are to be drawn in Excel or Word without any gradient paint (filling). Formulas are to be given in MS Equation editor.

Pictures in Word must be grouped into one graphic object. All illustrations must be given in black and white variants or in gradations of grey, other modes of filling (pattern) can be used.

Scanned illustrations and tables will not be tolerated. Raster illustrations are to be given in the original (snapshot, picture, negative or slide).

The article is supplied with relevant data about the author (authors).

The material is submitted on USB-carriers, disk or sent by e-mail.

The editor reserves the right for its staff to edit and shorten materials.

Manuscripts are not supposed to be sent back.

Authors carry responsibility for the accuracy of facts, citations, numbers and names.


Some essentials should be taken into account by authors who prepare articles for submission.


The title of an article must be informative. Only widely-used abbreviations can be used. No transliteration is allowed in the English translation of the title, except for proper names, names of equipment (tools) and other objects that are not translated. Slang that is used among Ukrainian specialists is not allowed in titles. The same is good for abstracts and key-words.

         English language abstracts (summaries and author profiles) in a Ukrainian publication are, for a foreign specialist,the main and the only source of information about the contents of an article and the results of investigation.

         It is the abstract that helps foreign specialists to evaluate the publication and define their interest to it, to use it in their own work or to refer to it, to open a discussion with the author, to ask for a full text of the work etc.

         Thus, the English abstract must be over 200-250 words, i.e. bigger in size than the Ukrainian one. Other requirements to English abstracts are these:

–       informative outlay (an abstract is not to include truisms);

–       originality (an English abstract is not a copy of a Ukrainian one)

–       pithiness (an annotation must reflect the gist of the article and the results of the study);

­         – well-structured contents (an abstract must reflect the logics of the article)

–       good English.


         Surnames and first names of the authors are translated according to one of the accepted systems of transliteration (see further “TABLE for Latin transliteration  of Ukrainian and Russian letters). It is desirable that the author who hopes to get his (her) article into the scientific metric base of the journal should use a single variant if his (her) name and surname.  By so doing the author will avoid having several profiles (identifiers) and his (her) works will be reflected in a fuller size within one profile.

         The same requirements are good to the presentation of the scientific status (position) of the author and the name of organization where he (she) works and carries research.




Aside from great importance of references inbibliometric and scientometric research, it should be noted that, based on references, scientometric resources may estimate the value and level of recognition of works by specific authors, a scientific level of journals, organizations and countries on the whole, determine the topicality of schools and scientific problems, identify their points of growth and fall etc. In addition, an article with a substantial list of references demonstrates a professional range of vision and a qualitative level of achievements of its authors.

The SKHID Journal chose the Harvard Referencing Style (the version of Great Britain (GB)) as a basis for drawing up a list of sources used as well as for arrangement of inline references.

With the above in view, please find below some general principles of entering REFERENCES:

1. Sources in the list are not numbered but arranged alphabetically by the last names of the authors and chronologically in case of references to more than one work of the same author (by the publication year, beginning with the earliest).

2. At first the author’s last name and initials are entered, a comma in-between: Malik, L.М.

3. If there are several authors, the latter are entered at the beginning of a bibliographic description, separated with commas: Bondar, I., Buhaienko, E. &Yaroshenko, Н.

4. In case of a publication under the editorship, the Editor’s surname is entered at the beginning of a bibliographic description with thepostscript‘ed.’or‘eds.’: Tochylin, V.O. еd. or Silverman, D.F. and Propp, K.K. eds.

5. If there is no author given, a bibliographic description starts with the book title: Collins German-English Dictionary.

6. The year of publication is entered after the surname and initials of the author/authors (if there are any) or after the book title (is there is no author): Guttmann, A., 1978. or Collins German-English Dictionary, 1993.

7. The title of a book or journal is italicized: Guttmann, A., 1978. From Ritual to Record: The Nature of Modern Sports. New York: Columbia University Press, pp.15-55.
