Author Guidelines



The journal joins the principles of the Publishing Ethics Committee (COPE). All authors must comply with the standards set forth in the ethical principles of the journal. In particular, pay attention to the need to avoid duplication of the article, plagiarism and self-plagiarism. If you are not sure what is implied by plagiarism, then read the article in Wikipedia. Self-plagiarism is defined as a type of plagiarism, in which the author reissues the work in full, or repeatedly some of it from his previously published work in a new article. A characteristic feature of such an article is the absence of references to its previous publications. Articles are checked for plagiarism. If such evidence is found, the article will be rejected and there is no further opportunity to forward it to the editorial office. You can also find services such as WriteCheck, which for a fee check your article for plagiarism.


The magazine welcomes articles on various aspects of physical education, sports and health of students, covering scientific research in related fields such as biomechanics, kinesiology, medicine, psychology, sociology, technology of sports equipment, studies of efficiency of training and sports selection, working capacity, health preservation and other interdisciplinary areas.
Empirical articles [recommend: Experiment - (from the Latin experimentum - a trial, an experiment) the study of any phenomena by actively influencing them by creating new conditions appropriate to the objectives of the study, or by changing the flow of the process in the desired direction. Differing from the observation of the active operation of the studied object] should be written briefly, using the scientific format [introduction, method (including participants, tools and procedures), results, discussion, references].
Theoretical work should be based on existing research literature and should critically analyze selected models and / or theories, or only representations of empirical results, if they are directly related to theory.
A review article should critically evaluate materials that have already been published.
The purpose of the review article is to analyze, evaluate and synthesize modern knowledge, and not simply reproduce what is already known. Review articles should consist of the following sections: problem definition, summary of previous studies, explanation of the subject, contradictions, problems and suggestions for further research.
According to preliminary data, the studies should present the results of the empirical study, which are still in the process and should be written using the same format as the empirical studies described at the beginning of this section. However, these reports should be shorter than the standard manuscript.

The manuscript should include:

Title page

should have the following data:

• the title of the article (the most important assessment of the scientific article, it should also include information about the scope of the research)

• full names (first name, patronymic - initials) and the names of all authors.

• Authorship (institution, university, etc.); if the authors belong to several different institutions, superscript numbers should be used to distribute the authors' names to the relevant institutions

• the full address, phone number, e-mail address of the respective author. The abstract should contain:

• Structured data (at 1800 printed signs), consisting of the following sections : Introduction and purpose of the study: it is necessary to clearly describe the rationale for conducting research based on previous work with respect to the study. This section must end with the affirmation of a specific solved problem or a hypothesis put forward. Next, indicate the purpose of the study. Material and methods: should list the methods used, without going into extensive methodological details and indicate the most important results. It is necessary to include sample sizes for the main experiments. Results: The main results should be listed without introduction. In parentheses, only the main statistical significance should be added. It is not necessary to draw conclusions. Conclusions: it is necessary to provide key conclusions as clearly as possible. A short, more general interpretation of the results and / or specific recommendations for future research can be included: • from 5 to 6 keywords (not from the title). • a glossary (up to 40 words as necessary) with links to keywords and special terms, representing the meaning, definitions or explanations of words, phrases, etc.


(Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Funding, Acknowledgments, Glossary and References): Introduction It is necessary to briefly present the problem, especially highlighting the level of knowledge of the authors about the problem at the beginning of the examination. It should be noted that one of the indicators of the level of knowledge about the problem is the ratio of the quoted sources of domestic authors to links to articles from English-language journals. One more indicator of the level of knowledge about the problem are references to their previous research on the topic of the article. In analyzing publications on the topic of the article, it is necessary to show: what has been accomplished and what the authors of these studies have failed to solve. It is necessary to highlight the problems that other authors have not solved. The introduction should contain a hypothesis. The purpose of the study After the hypothesis is to formulate the research objective. Material and methods. The materials and methods should be concise, but sufficient to allow other researchers to repeat the study. This section should contain three subsections (you can add other subsections if there is such a need) :( 1) Participants: Specify the number of participants, age. Note that all participants received informed consent to participate in this experiment. (2) Procedure (organization of research): gives the reader a summary of each step in the research. This summary should be concise, accurate and logical. Do not burden the reader with too many details. It is necessary to give enough information so that the reader can follow what is being done. Specify the instruments, equipment, and tests used. (3) Statistical Analysis: In the subtitle Statistical Analysis: the authors should explain which statistical tests were used to analyze their data and the rationale for using these tests. Care must be taken to ensure that: a) all tests are listed in the Material and Methods in the framework of statistical analysis, and b) that all of the listed tests are actually applied in the study. From this section, each reader should be able to understand which test was exactly used for each comparison of the data presented in the Results section. At the end of the statistical analysis, the authors should indicate the level of significance and the statistical programs used. We draw the attention of the authors that a simple listing of the research methods used by the editorial board is not accepted. It is necessary to clearly describe the set of observations or experimental methods used, the organization of the study, including such criteria as: age, sex, the need for their use depending on clearly defined circumstances, randomization and depersonalization of the subjects. Data collection protocol, procedures, parameters, measurement methods and instruments should be described in sufficient detail to allow other scientists to reproduce the results. References to the methods used should be provided. There should be provided: links and a brief description of the methods that were used. Little-known and significantly modified methods should be described in detail. There must be grounds for their use along with an assessment of their limitations. The names of the chemicals and devices used must be accompanied by information on the manufacturer (name, city and country), represented in parentheses. In the case of the use of chemicals, the general name, dose and method of administration should be provided. Statistical methods should be described in detail in order to ensure verification of the results presented. It is necessary to list the criteria used and the methodology for determining each criterion in a specific data analysis. This should be repeated in the "Results" section. Statistical values should be shown together with data in the text, as well as in tables and figures. It is necessary to present the exact values of p, with three decimal places. Providing information about participants in the experiments (patients) requires their official consent. Studies of patients and volunteers require informed consent, documented in the text of the manuscript. Where there is any unavoidable risk of infringing privacy - for example, in a clinical photograph or in detailed circumstances - it is necessary to obtain written consent from the patient for publication of the data that is copied in the journal. It is also necessary to provide information on the approval of the studies and their results by the ethics committee. With the participation of children in the experiments, the written consent of their parents must be obtained, as indicated in this section. In the human experiments reports, it should be indicated whether the procedures were carried out in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee for experimental rights (institutional or regional) or Helsinki declaration of 2008. The results should be presented briefly and reasonably. It is necessary to limit the number of tables and figures (graphs) necessary to explain the argument of this document and assess their necessity. You can not duplicate data in the form of graphs and tables. It is necessary to give the number of observations and reports, as well as the exclusion or loss of observations, such as those who dropped out of the study subjects. The results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, as well as in tables and figures that are consistent with the text with the help of footnotes. Do not repeat in the text all the data from the tables or graphs. It is necessary to emphasize only important observations and show trends. Discussion (or Discussion of results) should include an interpretation of the results of the study, as well as the results considered in the context of the results in other studies described in the literature. Do not repeat in detail the data or other material from the "Introduction" or the "Results" section. It is necessary to include in the discussion issues arising from conclusions, limitations on the scope of the conclusions, and prospects for future research. Discussion should be confronted with the results of other studies, especially those indicated in the text. It is necessary to show which researches of other authors confirm the validity of your research; highlight the novelty of your results. The volume of the "Discussion" section should be equal to or greater than the text part of the "Results" section. Outputs The results should not be repeated. It is necessary to reflect what results from the results. They should also be related to the research objectives. It is possible to formulate new hypotheses, if this is justified; include recommendations if necessary. It is necessary to avoid unqualified statements and conclusions that are absolutely not supported by the data received. The main points are to provide especially important information that the authors would like to highlight. Thank you. It should be noted that all participants who do not meet the authorship criteria, for example, technical assistants, assistants, text operators or department head , which provide only general support. It is necessary to describe their role. Financial and other material support should be disclosed and recognized. If the research is carried out in the context of the state budget, it is necessary to indicate this. Conflict of interest of the persons having direct or indirect relation to the publication of the article or the information contained therein. Otherwise, indicate "Author (s) declare (s) that there is no conflict of interest". Literature (≥20) this list should be numbered. The links selected for publication should be selected both for their importance, availability, and, if possible, for further reading. References cited in the tables, the captions to the figures should be numbered, as they will be cited in the text in a certain sequence. The references given in the glossary should be numbered starting with the last citation series in the text. If the article has a DOI, then this should be reflected in the link. The list of literature corresponds to the Vancouver style. The compilation of a list of references should proceed from the following principles: 1) the editors believe that the author has full knowledge of the problem if the references list articles from English-language journals of the last 5 years. The editors believe that there should be at least 50% of such references. 2) the editorial board believes that 2-3 fundamental works of the fatherlands should be presented in the article authors and 2-3 foreigners on the investigated problem.3) the editors consider it necessary to refer to 2-3 of their previous work on the problem under study. Thus, the author confirms his status as a specialist in this problem. 4) the editors consider it necessary to have references to the work of other specialists on the problem being investigated, both domestic and foreign. Such references can be 20, 30, 50 or more. See our latest issues of magazines. The sufficiency of references in review articles is determined by 2 reviewers, to whom the article is transferred from the editorial office. Examples of a bibliographic description - see the new state standard DSTU 8302: 2015. Its main differences from the previous one are as follows: All authors' names are indicated sequentially and then the main source name (twice the name is not repeated). The main source name is indicated below. Instead of the / and // signs, put a period. The "dash" (or hyphen) character is replaced with a space (it simply does not exist). There must not be any spaces before the punctuation marks.


The ARA style is used in the journal to design the list of references.

Rules for the design of ARA links are based on the author-year system, i.e. the author's surname and the date of the source creation are indicated inside the text: (Rogalevitš, 2017).

 The link should be indicated for each paragraph or sentence that is not written by the author of the work or when the wording used other people's ideas and ideas. For a paragraph, the link is added after the point, for the sentence - at the end of the sentence to the point or in the middle, depending on the wording of the text (Ainsaar, 2016), for example:

In the opinion of scientists, appraisers are not interested in the quality of content - they are more focused on indicators (Uustalu, 2013).
Uustalu (2013) writes that according to scientists ....
In 2013, Uustalu wrote that ... ..
 In the case of a quote, you must specify the page number where the quote is taken from. The number is indicated after the year and is separated by a colon:

Uustalu (2013: 15) writes that ".....".

If numbered links are used, then it is easier to refer to the text inside: In 2013, Uustalu wrote that ... [1]. Or together with the page number: In 2013, Uustalu wrote that ... [1,15].

NB! No matter where the quote is taken, from paper sources or from the Internet - it is necessary to refer in any case! If a web page was used, then it is also necessary to specify the author and year (the date of updating or viewing).

If the author does not specify in the source, then it is necessary to refer to the title and year. The source should be well studied, the author can specify the organization or owner of the web page.

A short review of two possible styles of design of in-text links based on different number of authors and their type:

References for sources in Russian, Ukrainian, Polish.

Surnames, initials of authors are written down by transliteration. The title of the work is translated into English. The title edition is written in transliteration (if there is no English version). At the end of the source, it is indicated in which language it is published (In Russian).


Numbering. The tables should be numbered with Arabic numerals; there should be links in the text in order of numbers, for example, "Table 1." Each table should be mentioned at least once in the text in the appropriate order. In the printed document, the placement of the tables will be determined be their first mention in the text.

Format. Each table should have a short title (less than the sentence); more extensive descriptions or secondary information should be included in the footnote to the table. All tables should be typed only according to horizontal rules; vertical rules are not used. Tables must not contain empty lines. Each column, including the first, should have a title. Headings of columns should be marked with short entries (one or two words); the first letter of each word is capitalized. Units of measure should be given in parentheses immediately below the column headers, and not listed in the data in the body of the table.

Tables must accompany the manuscript. Tables should not duplicate the results presented elsewhere in the manuscript (for example, on graphs). All necessary explanations and the legend of abbreviations should be indicated. The data should be organized so that the corresponding elements are read down, not across. Data located in columns should correspond to the time sequence of their collection, when read from left to right. Each column header for a numeric data must include the units of measure applied to all data in accordance with the header. It is necessary to select suitable SI units, so that the values given in the table range from 0-999. Large numbers can be expressed in smaller units with the corresponding column headings. It is necessary to determine statistical indicators of variations, such as the standard deviation and the standard error of the mean. You can not use internal horizontal and vertical rules. Each table must be cited in the text.

If you use data from another published or unpublished source, you must make the appropriate reference. The equations created in the Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, or 2011 formula editor create problems because their display in the editor is not 100% accurate.

Therefore, it is recommended to use the formula editor MathType to create equations. Long equations should be placed in the text and numbered sequentially. After the equation, you should refer to it by the number (for example, "equation 1", "equations 3 and 4.") If all or some of the equations have a simple form (on one baseline), plain text and fonts are used: E (t ) • R = D + [exp (-it)] + D- [exp (it)] (1) Complex equations should be built using standard plug-ins such as MathType or Equation Editor Word: (1) If the manuscript includes a lot of equations or schemes, they can be collected in a table of equations that can be displayed in the form of a picture.

Figures like the rule are reduced to the same width (8, 4 cm) and should be prepared accordingly. Handwritten inscriptions and poor quality of computer graphics are not acceptable. Electronic versions of drawings should be prepared as they will be published in the journal. Files must have a resolution of 600 dpi. Figures should be numbered (Arabic numerals) sequentially in accordance with the order in which they were first mentioned in the text. Figures should contain the following information: (a) name; (b) all necessary explanations of symbols and conclusions written continuously; (c) Statistics. Do not put the name of the picture in its image.

Several figures related to the same subject, shown in the stages, should be labeled Figure 1 A, B, C, etc., not Fig. 1, 2, 3. The symbols must be constant during a series of drawings. You should use simple symbols, such as closed and open circles, triangles and squares. Different types of trunks can be used. The values of symbols and lines must be defined in the legend. The axes must be equal in length so that the diagrams are square. Each axis must be labeled with a description of the variable that it stands for. Only the first letter of the first word should be capitalized. Marking must be parallel to the corresponding axis. The axes must not extend beyond the last digit and must never end with arrows. The units of measure must be chosen so that the expressed values can range from 0 to 999. Graphs or diagrams must be provided as complete Excel files. Do not draw 3D graphics, if this is not absolutely necessary. Do not shade the background and use a grid.

Microphotos should have internal scale marks. The symbols, arrows or letters used in the photomicrograph should contrast with the background. If photographs of people or objects are used, they should not be identified, or their photographs must be accompanied by a written permission to use the photo. If the figure, graph, diagram, microphotographs, diagrams, etc. were published, it is necessary to recognize the original and submit a written permission from the copyright owner to reproduce the material. For This requires permission regardless of authorship or publisher for documents in the public domain except for exceptions. Measurement Units Measurements of length, height, weight and volume should be presented in metric units (meter, kilogram, liter) or their decimal multiples. The temperature should be given in degrees Celsius. Blood pressure should be given in millimeters of mercury.

Abbreviations and symbols You can only use standard abbreviations. Abbreviations in the title and annotations should be avoided. The full term must be preceded by an abbreviation when it is first used in the text, unless it is a standard unit of measurement.

1. Introduction

1.1. Reliability of science is one of its qualitative foundations. Readers should be guaranteed that authors present the results of their work in a clear, reliable and honest manner regardless of the fact whether they are the direct authors of publication or they took benefit of specialized help (natural or legal person). Openness of information of any part contributing to preparation of a publication (content connected with material, financial etc. support) is a proof of ethical attitude both research worker and high editorial standards and also become an indication of good practice and social responsibility. The publication in reviewed journals is a way for scientific communication, that is why makes a great contribution in the development of corresponding field of scientific knowledge. Thus, it is necessary to standardize the future ethical behavior of all involved in publication parties: authors, journal editors, publishing houses and scientific society.

1.2. Publisher supports and invests scientific communications, responsible for keeping all modern recommendations to the published article.

1.3. Publisher engages strictly supervise scientific materials. Our journal programs submit dispassionate “report” of scientific thought and research development. So, we realize the responsibility for proper presentation of such “reports” especially from the ethical aspects point of view of publication mentioned above.

2. Duties of Editors

2.1. Decision about publication
The editor of scientific journal by one-self and independently responsible for making a decision about publication in collaboration with corresponding Scientific society. The validity of reviewed manuscript and its scientific relevance is a basis of decision about publication. The editor can follow the policy of editorial board, even if he limited in topical legal requirements in relation to slander, copyright, legality and plagiarism. The editor can confer with other Editors and Reviewers (or public individuals of Scientific society) during making a decision about publication.

2.2.Fair play
The editor must appreciate intelligent content of the manuscripts without regard to race, sex, sexual orientation, religious views, origin, nationality or political preference of authors.

The editor and Editorial board of the journal must not declare any information about the manuscript except for Authors, Reviewers, possible reviewers, academic adviser and Publisher.

Disclosure policy and Conflicts of interests

2.4.1. Unpublished material from the reviewed manuscripts forbidden to use in own research works without written agreement of the Author. Obtained during the review information or ideas with possible preferences must be confidential and do not use for self-interest.
