In journal are published scientific researches results of scientists, masters, scientists from other universities and organizations and foreign scientists. Their scientific works include actual problems of radical, applied and other researches in different sciences. Materials are published in Kazakh, Russian and English languages.

Leading scientists from different countries of the world agreed to join the Editorial Board of the Journal.

The publishes the following article types:

· Reviews, usually by invitation and organized into themed issues, report on recent advances in mathematical and physical research; · Mini-Reviews discuss a more narrowly focused topic of recent research. Unsolicited reviews are considered only if they are authored by investigators who have demonstrated expertise in the relevant areas; · Original Research Papers contain innovative, hypothesis-driven research that is supported by sound experimental design, methodology, and data interpretation; · Brief Technical Notes, normally more limited in scope than Original Research Papers, must be of high quality, general interest, and sufficient importance to warrant publication; · Rapid Communications provide a venue for fast-breaking research updates or other news items. The justification for rapid communication should be stated in the cover letter during submission; · Regulatory Notes provide a summary of regulatory decisions made and rationale for the regulatory decision made on a product. These notes are typically submitted by invitation only, but Authors may propose notes to the Editors; · Editorials, Commentaries or Summaries are usually published by invitation only.

 Formatting your document

*Title

The title page must be submitted as a separate file, and should include the title of the article, author names with full first name (no degrees), each author’s affiliation, and a suggested running head (of less than 50 characters, including spaces). The affiliation should comprise the department, institution (usually university or company), city, and state (or nation) and should be typed as a footnote to the author’s name. For the corresponding author designated to correspond with the Editorial Office and review proofs, indicate his/her complete mailing address, office/cellular telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address.

*Abstract

Only Reviews, Mini Reviews, Original Research Articles, Rapid Communications and Meeting Reports require an abstract. The abstract is limited to 250 words or less. All abstracts must be written in one paragraph, with no subheadings, equations, tables, reference citations or graphics.

*Keywords

Insert 5–10 keywords. Please follow the template style for all the above features.

*Introduction

Required for Reviews, Mini Reviews, Original Research Articles, and Meeting Reports only.

*Main Text Body

For Original Research Articles, Brief Technical Notes, Rapid Communications, organize the main text as follows: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion. Combining Results and Discussion is discouraged. The use of subheadings to divide the text is encouraged. Primary, Secondary, and Third level headings should be clearly defined, but do not use numbers or letters.

Recommended word counts are as follows: Reviews, Original Research Articles and Meeting Reports: 5000; Mini Reviews: 2500; Brief Technical Reports/Note, and Rapid Communications: 1200.

Use abbreviations sparingly, and define them at the first insertion in the text. Define all abbreviations used in tables within the table footnotes Use the metric system for all measurements. Express metric abbreviations in lowercase letters without periods (cm, mL, sec). Define all symbols used in equations and formulas. When symbols are used extensively, the authors may include a list of all symbols in a table. Numbers should be reported as no more than 3 significant figures, unless clearly justified.

PEER REVIEW

All submissions will be reviewed by two independent Reviewers. Authors are encouraged to submit names and email addresses of expert reviewers, but selection remains a prerogative of the Editors. Authors may include supplementary notes to facilitate the review process. Authors are responsible for all statements in their work, including changes made by the copyeditor after a manuscript is accepted. We make use of a streamlined refereeing system that aims to be both fair and consistent. For every submission that falls within the scope of one of our journals, we normally select independent experts from members of editorial board in the subject of the article who normally act as referees and advise on whether the article should be accepted or rejected. We ask our referees to take into account the content of the article, its quality and presentation when reaching their recommendations. If the referees give conflicting advice, a editor-in-chief acts as an adjudicator. If the referees recommend rejection of your article, you can appeal to the Editorial Board for further consideration.

Duties of editors

 The ethic statements, concerning the duties of the editors, are based on Committee on Publication Ethics.

The Editors actively work to improve the quality of the Journal. Thy are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted should be published and they are guided by the policies of the Journal’s International Board and constrained by the laws in force.

The editors evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political orientation of the authors.

The editors and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher.

Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by editors without the express written consent of the author. The collection of responsibilities and expectations presented below are mainly based on the guidelines and standards developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and are enforced during each phase of processing a contribution for publication

Duties of reviewers

Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.

Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

A reviewer should call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation.

Reviewers should not consider manuscripts which can give birth to conflicts of interest resulting from competitive,collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Duties of authors

Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The articles should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

Usually, authors should not publish manuscripts presenting the same research in more than one journal or primary publication.

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given like publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors.

Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors.

The corresponding author should ensure that all co-authors are included on the article, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the article and have agreed to its submission to the Journal for its publication.

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the Journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
