    Par. 4 – the (co) authors information: footnote (superscript - arabic numeral and further asterisk for corresponding author) [if the authors two or more], the organization, where the author works, and / or department, the complete mailing address (building, house, street, locality, country), for the (co) author for correspondence - additional telephone numbers, fax, e-mail (required) website (if there is), ORCID unique number (you have the opportunity to register and receive an unique number in the register of researchers ORCID identifiers on https://orcid.org/register link).

    Percent signs are beaten from the previous number, for example: 10 %.

  4. Table sets. Tables should give information to the reader in a clear and simple form, should be drawn concisely, clearly and should contain the minimum information, necessary to illustrate the text.

The figure have to be located in the center, without text wrapping. Figures are placed "in the text" (not in the tables). Symbols, signature, drawing lines should be done in such way that its are perceived after reducing the size of the picture to the width of one column. Captions should include numbering in the stacking order in the text and explanatory caption, which are in italics. It is unacceptable to include a signature in the figure.

    Illustrations should be prepared with the possibility of printing materials on rizografe, rather with a minimal use of gray shades (especially diagrams prepared in MS Excel).It is not allowed for illustration creating to use editing software built into Word for Windows !!!

    The caption should be out of the picture, the intervals before and after - 6 pt, Times New Roman, italic, lowercase letters, font size 10 pt, centered. If after thematic headings of signature is given decoding then between them is placed the colon and the next posted decoding is typed in a smaller point size (9 pt.). The mandatory tranlating of the figure signature in English.

  6. Formula sets. For formula sets is used the built in Word for Windows formula editor Microsoft Equation 3.0 or MathType 5.

    Formulas range the separate lines in the middle column and only simple, small formulas, which do not have independent sense are positioned within text strings.

    Arabic numerals in parentheses denote a formula number of the article. It is placed at the right edge of the dial in one line with the numbered formula. If it is a multiline formula, a number is placed in line with the last line of the formula.

    Formulas are arranged so, that its are placed in a column of 81.5 mm in width. Before and after of formulas is an interval of 6 pt.

    Common set of rules:

    1. The numbers in the formulas are typed in a upright font.

    2. Literal marking of values (symbols), which use letters of the alphabet are typed in italics.

    3. The reduced mathematical terms (for example, sin, arcsin, lg, lim, const, max) are typed in a upright font.

    4. Abbreviations of physical and technical units, metric measures and their derivatives are typed in a upright font without points, for example: 10 V, 25 kW,12 km.

    5. Reductions in the indexes is typed in a upright font, for example: Lpol (L pol.). If the index is a value symbol, it is printed in italics, for example: p - pressure; x - coordinate; i, k - the current indexes.

    6. It is not permitted to place designation unit next to the formula that shows the dependence between values or between their numerical values in the form of letters.

  7. REFERENCES is given below the main text of the article, after the "Break section (on the current page)." Its are performed in a single column on the page width. The references in the text are placed in square brackets ([1]). The reference list is made in the following order: first, all references in the Cyrillic alphabet from A to Z, then all the Latin alphabet (A ... Z), presented in alphabetical order. Then this list is numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals.

    Each reference record is according to "State Standard 7.1:2006. The standards system on information, librarianship and publishing. The bibliographic record. The bibliographic description. General requirements and rules", which is valid from 01.07.2007.

    The transliteration of authors' names is performed, depending on the language of the original source as required by the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated on January 27, 2010 №55 "About harmonization of translіteration of Ukrainian alphabet in Latin" (for the Ukrainian language), or the requirements of BGN / HCGN system (for the Russian language).

    Separately, the REFERENCES are done, according to the Harvard style, that does not have stringent canonical requirements for the composition and have a conventional recommender character. Each university chooses for itself. Thus, REFERENCES in journals of different universities have basically a similar design, but the details may differ greatly!

    REFERENCES for "Construction, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering", "Physical Metallurgy and Heat Treatment of Metals" and "Prydniprovij Engineering Science of News" are made as follows:

    There is the tranlating of authors (initials are placed on the right, between the point of the name letter and surname letter the space is not put [Shparber M.E.,]), surname and initials are written in transliteration in the beginning. If there are no authors, it is indificated an editor. If there is more than one author before the last author instead of "," is written the word "end". After the last author and his initials is set ".", are written the transliterated name of the article, journals, books (in the general reference) in italics. After that is set the space and is opened the "[]". There is written the translation of the book names in English. After square brackets are put a point and ".". Then there is all that is behind "//". It is recorded a transliterated title (in italics) in the "[]" and the English translation, is placed in the ".". Then (for the book) city ":" publishing "," year "," the number of pages «p.». (Kyiv: Vyd-vo Yevropeiskyi Universytet, 2008, 208 p.) The transliteration record is without italics.

    For articles: italic and transliterated name of the journal, the collection, in the "[]" the English translation, at the end of ".". Then the abbreviation of the organization (if there is some) "," city "," vol "," iss "," № "," the pp '. " the range of the pages ".'. The record is transliterated without italics. After "." in the end in "()" is written the original language of the article. (Stroitelstvo, materialovedenie, mashinostroenie - [Construction, materials science, mechanical engineering]. PDABA Dnipropetrovsk, 2013, no. 69, pp. 242-246. (in Ukrainian).)

    There are four types of dash: dash (long) «—»; short (average) dash «–», minus; «–» and dash «-».
