Main Requirements for Publications

Authors` manuscripts to be published in the journal «Family Health — the 21 Century» should correspond to the topic, be original and not published before. If the materials of an article have already been published the author should inform the editorial board beforehand. The decision on publication of such materials is made by the head editor.

Authors are responsible for the contents of their articles.

Manuscripts are sent to the editorial office in two variants: electronically (CD disk or by E — mail) and printed in the format 4 (210×297 ) signed by all the authors with exact contact details (name, surname, academic degree, address, index, E — mail).

Publications in the journal should be necessarily reviewed. The article should be accompanied by a review, the sign of a referee — be verified, the review — have a stamp.

The conclusive decision of the possibility of publication is made by the editorial board. «Blind» review of specialists in a definite field of medicine is also practiced. The editorial board conducts scientific and literary editing of the materials, if necessary reduces them on agreement with the author. If the theme of an article is of great interest for the journal the work can be sent to the author for correction and adaptation.
