The procedure for submission and conditions of publication of manuscripts
in a scientific and practical journal
“Bulletin of KazNMU”
In accordance with the international rules of publication ethics, KazNMU carries out a strict check and assessment of manuscripts for anti-plagiarism, duplication or borrowing of previously published texts, including the author (s). Subsequent republishing of articles in other publications is also not allowed.
Such articles will be retracted (withdrawn from the databases), and sanctions will be applied to authors who have violated ethical norms, up to blacklisting their names, which will negatively affect their scientific reputation and make our further cooperation impossible.
Please follow the rules of publication ethics of the journal “Vestnik KazNMU” and conscientiously draw up links to all sources used, avoiding borrowing and duplication.
Acceptance of articles for publication is carried out exclusively by receiving them in electronic form on the website of the journal. To do this, the authors (contact person) must carefully read the Requirements for the design of an electronic article and the procedure for sending an article in electronic form to the editor (see below).
When sending an article to the editors, it is recommended to be guided by the following rules, drawn up taking into account the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals, developed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, www .icmje.org).
All copyright materials sent for publication in the journal must be formatted in accordance with the following requirements. Manuscripts that do not have the appropriate format will not be accepted for consideration.
The editors accept for consideration only previously unpublished manuscripts that correspond to the focus of the journal and the criteria of scientific quality. Manuscripts should be relevant in terms of topics, significant from a scientific and practical point of view, clearly structured compositionally (problem statement, solutions, conclusions and proposals).
The article must be written in good Russian, English or Kazakh. The volume of the article (excluding the annotation, information about the authors and the list of references) is 1.5 – 5 thousand words.
When preparing a manuscript, it is necessary to adhere to the following structure of metadata presented in Russian and English:
classifiers of the UDC article;
surname, name and patronymic of the author (s); academic degree, academic title, honorary title (if any); position, place of work; Name of the organization; contact information: e-mail, city, country of residence, contact numbers for communication with the editorial office of the journal;
title of the article;
ORCID (if any) – a unique number of a scientist, which allows identifying his publications, patents, grants received and other results of scientific activity (each author can get this unique number by registering on the website http://orcid.org/);
annotation (200 – 350 words);
keywords (8–12 words).
At the end of the article, there is a list of sources in Russian, Kazakh and English with transliteration.
When translating a manuscript into English with the help of a non-specialist translator, it is recommended that the text be edited by a native speaker or someone who has been using English professionally for a long time.
All articles must undergo a two-way blind peer review. The base of reviewers is posted on the site. The manuscripts received by the editors are not returned to the authors.
Manuscripts undergo scientific and literary editing.
By sending materials to the editorial office of the journal, the author deliberately agrees with the rules for publishing and posting his materials in the open access by filling out the documents in the online article submission system.
Stages of article consideration
Moderation. The article is considered by the issuing editor from the point of view of compliance with the design requirements and can be sent to the author for revision.
Reviewing. The article is sent for two-way blind peer review to members of the editorial board and / or external reviewers. The maximum review period is no more than 1 month.
The article is accepted or rejected based on the conclusions of the reviewers and the decision of the editor-in-chief. All incoming articles are checked for originality using the appropriate electronic resources and systems. In the message to the author about the results of the review, the following wording is used:
– the article has been reviewed and accepted for publication;
– the article has been reviewed and requires some improvement;
– the article was reviewed and rejected.
The main reasons for rejection of articles are inconsistency with the scientific sphere of the journal, a significant proportion of borrowings and re-publication of their own results, lack of scientific novelty.
The editorial board does not enter into correspondence with the authors regarding the opinion of the reviewers.
Requirements for annotations and keywords
Only manuscripts with the most concretized annotations are accepted for publication. The abstract should contain justification, description of methods, main results and conclusions. The abstract shows the distinctive features and advantages of the article. Its purpose is to interest the reader and encourage him to read the entire article. Due to the fact that the author’s resume together with the bibliographic description of the article is also used regardless of the full text on the Internet, databases, etc., it is important to avoid references to the bibliography to the article and your own, not generally recognized abbreviations.
The abstract must be submitted in Russian and English.
The volume of the abstract (author’s resume) should be at least 200 – 250 words.
The annotation must reflect:
– the relevance of the study, its goals and objectives;
– information about when, where, how the research was carried out;
– what methods and sources of information were used;
– what are the specific results of the study;
– main conclusions (specifics);
– perspectives – information about how the obtained result correlates with the conclusions of other scientists; what are the research prospects, directions of further work, difficulties.
Keywords and phrases are used to search for an article in electronic databases – they should be laconic, reflect the content and specifics of the manuscript, including reflected in the abstract. The number of keywords is 8–12. When forming keywords, you should avoid words with an abstract meaning or terms that can be used in other scientific disciplines. Keywords should be as specific as possible and reflect the specifics of the article.
