Final Manuscript Preparation Guidelines for Chemical Technology, Control and Management
This document provides details on typesetting and layout requirements pertaining to final manuscript submission to Chemical Technology, Control and Management.
The editorial board possesses the right not to consider articles issued with a violation of current journal rules.
Please note that the editorial board of the International Scientific-Technical Journal " Chemical Technology. Control and Management" (hereinafter the editorial board) does not accept articles for publication if an identical article has already been published or exists in the portfolio of other media.
Authors, submitting the materials in Russian or English to the editorial board, take the responsibility not to share such materials with publications of any other media without the knowledge and official agreement of the editorial board.
The editorial board has the right to stop further work with authors who violate the agreements below. The article is submitted in electronic form.
Structure of the article: Regardless of the type, the content of the article should include three main sections:
- introduction ("Introduction"), where the author justifies the relevance of the topic and the appropriateness of its development, defines the purpose and objectives of the study, reveals the tested hypotheses. The main task of this section is to establish a scientific problem, which at the moment is not completely solved in theoretical or practical aspect, has inconsistencies between theoretical assumptions and reality, etc. Without sufficient justification by the author of relevance and expediency of the studied topic the article may be rejected at the initial consideration;
- research Methods and the received results ("Research Methods and the Received Results"), which may consist of one or more sub-items with a name. Here the author on the basis of the analysis and synthesis of information reveals the processes and methods of research of the problem and development of the topic, details the results of the study;
- conclusion ("Conclusion"," Results "and" Discussion"), where the author formulates conclusions, gives recommendations, reveals the results of the study (in accordance with the goal), containing scientific novelty, indicates possible directions for further research.
- The volume of the article: six pages or more (including figures, tables and bibliographic references.
- Do not include a title page or abstract. (Begin the document with the introduction; a title page, including the abstract, will be added to your paper by the editors.)
- Do not include page numbers, headers, or footers. These will be added by the editors.
- Write your article in English or Russian.
- Submit your manuscript, including tables, figures, appendices, etc., as a single file (Word, RTF, or PDF files are accepted).
- Page size should be A4 Format 210x297.
- Margins: right—1.5 sm, left—2 sm, top and bottom—2.5 sm., including your tables and figures.
- Single space your text.
- Use a single column layout with both left and right margins justified.
- Main Body—12 pt. Times New Roman
- Footnotes—10 pt. Times New Roman
- If figures are included, use high-resolution figures, preferably encoded as encapsulated PostScript (eps).
- Copyedit your manuscript.
- When possible, there should be no pages where more than a quarter of the page is empty space.
- Not allowed (!) type texts in uppercase (capital) letters and bold (except for the authors (a) and the title of the article), as well as place all these elements in the framework and simulate the design of the set performed in the journal.
When submitting a scientific article to the journal it is necessary to adhere to the following:
- Submit the article title, full name of authors, abstract and keywords in English, Uzbek and Russian.
- UDC (Universal Decimal Classification) number precedes the title of the article corresponding to the declared topic and should be indicated in the upper left corner of the page;
- title of the article (centered in bold capital letters);
- author (s) (centered in bold);
- keywords (at least 7 words).
- Indicate the name of the organization and the addresses only in English (official name of the organization, city, country, e-mail address and phone number) of all authors.
- Article manuscript (full text) in Russian or English.
- the list of references are given, containing at least 16 names with a wide geography, in English or transliterated in Latin letters (according to the requirements below).

The abstract should have a volume of 150 to 250 words (at least 8 lines), font 10 and include the following aspects of the article content:
- result of work;
- scope of results.
In the abstract, verbs in the past tense of the perfect form should be used: Introduced, analyzed, Given, Proved, Stated, Investigated, Discussed, Described, Defined, Marked, Shown, Obtained, Posed, Proposed, Presented, Given, Illustrated, Formulated, Considered, paid attention, Indicated, etc.
Indenting, Line Spacing, and Justification
Indent all paragraphs except those following a section heading. An indent should be 1.25 sm.
Do not insert extra space between paragraphs of text with the exception of long quotations, theorems, propositions, special remarks, etc. These should be set off from the surrounding text by additional space above and below.
Don't "widow" or "orphan" text (i.e., ending a page with the first line of a paragraph or beginning a page with the last line of a paragraph).
All text should be left-justified (i.e., flush with the left margin—except where indented). Where possible, it should also be right-justified (i.e., flush with the right margin). "Where possible" refers to the quality of the justification. For example, LaTeX and TeX do an excellent job of justifying text. Word does a reasonable job. But some word processors do a lousy job (e.g., they achieve right justification by inserting too much white space within and between words). We prefer flush right margins. However, it is better to have jagged right margins than to have flush right margins with awkward intra- and inter-word spacing. Make your decision on whichever looks best.
Language & Grammar
All submissions must be in English or Russian. Except for common foreign words and phrases, the use of foreign words and phrases should be avoided.
Because this journal publishes electronically, page limits are not as relevant as they are in the world of print publications. We are happy, therefore, to let authors take advantage of this greater "bandwidth" to include material that they might otherwise have to cut to get into a print journal. This said, authors should exercise some discretion with respect to length.
Set the font color to black for the majority of the text. We encourage authors to take advantage of the ability to use color in the production of figures, maps, etc., however, you need to appreciate that this will cause some of your readers problems when they print the document on a black & white printer. For this reason, you are advised to avoid the use of colors in situations where their translation to black and white would render the material illegible or incomprehensible.
Please ensure that there are no colored mark-ups or comments in the final version, unless they are meant to be part of the final text. (You may need to "accept all changes" in track changes or set your document to "normal" in final markup.)
Whenever possible use italics to indicate text you wish to emphasize rather than underlining it. The use of color to emphasize text is discouraged.
Except, possibly, where special symbols are needed, use Times or the closest comparable font available. If you desire a second font, for instance for headings, use a sans serif font (e.g., Arial or Computer Modern Sans Serif).
The main body of text should be set in 12pt. Avoid the use of fonts smaller than 6pt.
Headings (e.g., start of sections) should be distinguished from the main body text by their fonts or by using small caps. Use the same font face for all headings and indicate the hierarchy by reducing the font size. There should be space above and below headings.
The font for the main body of text must be black and, if at all possible, in Times or closest comparable font available.
Whenever possible, titles of books, movies, etc., should be set in italics rather than underlined.
Footnotes should appear at the bottom of the page on which they are referenced rather than at the end of the paper. Footnotes should be in 10 pt. Times or closest comparable font available, they should be single spaced, and there should be a footnote separator rule (line). Footnote numbers or symbols in the text must follow, rather than precede, punctuation. Excessively long footnotes are probably better handled in an appendix. All footnotes should be left and right-justified (i.e., flush with the right margin), unless this creates awkward spacing.
Tables and Figures
To the extent possible, tables and figures should appear in the document near where they are referenced in the text. Large tables or figures should be put on pages by themselves. The tables must be numbered sequentially. The word "table" is typed in the usual right-aligned font 10 (for example, table 1), below-the title of the table (typed in bold in the center). If the table is large, it can be placed on a separate page, and in the case when it has a significant width-on the page with landscape orientation. Illustrations. Photos must be clear, with a resolution of at least 300 dpi (CMYK color coding). Attention! Color drawings when printing should be clear and sufficiently contrasting or made by means of computer graphics. Special attention should be paid to curves and graphs of dependencies. They must be different from each other. To do this, they should be either lines of different thickness, or dashed or dotted lines, or provide markers, or numbered, giving appropriate explanations in the caption text. Illustrations and captions should be inserted into the text of the article and additionally attached as a separate file of any common graphic format (for example,.jpg,.bmp, .tiff, etc.). Illustrations are numbered consecutively in bold italics, without quotation marks, and centered (for example, Fig.1). Can contain a caption, font 10 PT.
All equations must be written using the "Equation Editor". The use of the copy-paste procedure for inserting equations in manuscripts from other sources is strictly prohibited. The set of mathematical formulas within the entire text should be uniform:
—character sizes are determined by standard Math Type settings (Size-Define-Factory),
—Russian and Greek characters-direct font,
—Latin in italics.
Roman letters used in mathematical expressions as variables should be italicized. Roman letters used as part of multi-letter function names should not be italicized. Whenever possible, subscripts and superscripts should be a smaller font size than the main text.
Short mathematical expressions should be typed inline. Longer expressions should appear as display math. Also expressions using many different levels (e.g., such as the fractions) should be set as display math. Important definitions or concepts can also be set off as display math.
Equations should be numbered sequentially. Whether equation numbers are on the right or left is the choice of the author(s). However, you are expected to be consistent in this.
Symbols and notation in unusual fonts should be avoided. This will not only enhance the clarity of the manuscript, but it will also help insure that it displays correctly on the reader's screen and prints correctly on her printer. When proofing your document under PDF pay particular attention to the rendering of the mathematics, especially symbols and notation drawn from other than standard fonts.
It is the author's obligation to provide complete references with the necessary information. After the last sentence of your submission, please insert a line break—not a page break—and begin your references on the same page, if possible. References should appear right after the end of the document, beginning on the last page if possible. References should have margins that are both left and right- justified. You may choose not to right-justify the margin of one or more references if the spacing looks too awkward. Each reference should give the last names of all the authors, their first names or first initials, and, optionally, their middle initials. The list name of references should be written with a word “REFERENCES”. References to the sources used in the article are enclosed in square brackets and numbered sequentially, for example .
The list of references is compiled in the order of citation and issued in accordance to the IEEE Citation Style. References to literature in the text are marked as they appear by serial numbers. An example is given here
