Title. The title of the article should be informative and concise. It must correspond to the scientific style of the text, contain 10-12 words, the main keywords and not use abbreviations and mathematical formulas. The title should be easy to read by people and web search engines.

Information about the authors: full name and place of work, city, country, e-mail address. The order in which authors are mentioned in the title of an article depends on their contribution to the work performed. The name of organizations must match the name in the charter of these organizations.

The list of the authors should be guaranteed to include all persons who meet the criteria for authorship (that is, have made a significant contribution to the work).

The authors acting in accordance with the rules adopted by their institution are responsible for correct authorship identification.

Author’s resume (abstract). The author provides an abstract of at least 200 and no more than 300 words. The abstract is a source of basic information about the article in international and Russian databases, as well as other abstract resources. It should contain the necessary terms that allow you to reach this article using the search elements. The annotation should reflect the relevance of the research topic, problem statement, purpose and methods of research, results and key conclusions (3-5 sentences, briefly reflecting the key research results).

Key words: 8-10 words / stable phrases, by which the article will be searched in the future. Key words should reflect the specifics of the article subject, research object and results. It is not recommended to include words from the title of the article in the list of keywords.

Translation. An abstract in English may be longer than in Russian and contain the necessary explanations for a foreign reader. The English annotation should not be a copy of the Russian language version, but a stylistically competent translation.


The main types of citations:

• Direct citation  –  verbatim reproduction of an excerpt from someone else’s text, cited in quotation marks indicating the source and the page from which the link was taken.

• Paraphrase / retelling – a short statement of a long theoretical concept or a summary of information indicating the author of the idea or source of information

• Summarizing  –  the integration of other people’s materials and sources into the scientific work of the author’ s article.

• Citation from secondary sources is used when the original source is lost or unavailable, is written in a language that is difficult to translate, or the text of the quote is known from the recording of their author’s words in the memories of others.

• Informal citation and hidden citation is the use of ideas without direct reference to its author, but with the possibility of identifying the original source through a chain of citations; it is most often used when modified ideas are better than original ones.

• Self-citation is citing the author’s own work. References to your own publications demonstrate the continuity of your research; however, they should be made to available sources and to articles from journals. Such references cannot make up more than 25% of the list of references.

• Mutual citation – links to the work of your colleagues.


Reference list allows you to recognize and use other authors’ ideas, avoiding accusations of plagiarism; quickly find sources of materials referred to by the author, familiarize yourself with them and make sure that the data from these sources is reliable; demonstrate the scope and depth of research (citing the author’s previous publications).

Therefore, ALL scientific articles should include bibliography, since all new studies are based on previous ones with a great deal of novelty. A scientific article that does not have bibliography is not complete, since the author did not indicate how his work differs from the work of previous researchers.

The list of references should contain from 10 to 20 sources. Sources are indicated at the end of the article in the order of their citation.

Cited publications should be as recent as possible. The list of references includes only sources that have the status of scientific publications and were used in the preparation of the article, noted in the body of the article and designed in accordance with the standard of the journal. It is considered correct to cite high-quality Russian journals that are indexed or have prospects for indexing in international databases. Textbooks, Russian standards, Conference proceedings that are not publicly available, should not be included in reference list.

The list of references must necessarily indicate the works of international studies on this topic. Research carried out without studying international experience remains local and, by world standards, is not competent enough.

The percentage of self-citation demonstrates the achievements of the authors, the presence of a scientific background in the study, but should not exceed 25% of the total number of works cited.

Authors are required to provide two reference lists: the first Reference list should be prepared taking into account the requirements of Russian databases, the second (Reference list) – taking into account the requirements of international databases in the Latin alphabet.

The Reference list is made according to the standard adopted in our journal.

Attention! The right title of the journal is:

• “Известия высших учебных заведений. Технология текстильной промышленности”, when citing articles in Russian;

• Izvestiya Vysshikh Uchebnykh Zavedenii, Seriya Teknologiya Tekstil’noi Promyshlennosti,  when citing articles in English;

• transliteration (if indicated in the list of references): Izvestiya Vysshikh Uchebnykh Zavedenii, Seriya Teknologiya Tekstil’noi Promyshlennosti.

Volume of publication. The amount of material can vary significantly depending on the type of article.

Original scientific article (Full Article) – a detailed presentation of the results of logically completed scientific study – contains from 5 to 10 pages of printed text in 1.5 intervals, size 14, Times Roman Cyr font, 5-8 figures and / or tables.

Short Communications Article, Notes and Letters – summary presentation of individual results of  logically completed scientific study that contains no more than 3 pages, no more than 2-4 figures or tables and at least 8 references (except Letters) in the list of references.

Review paper / perspectives – a critical summary of a research subject – 10 or more pages, 5-8 figures, and at least 40 references.

Structure. The article should contain 4 main blocks: 1) introduction; 2) methods; 3) results and discussions; 4) conclusion.

The “Introduction” block should contain the relevance of the research topic; review of literature on the topic; statement of the problem, description of white spots in the problem or what has not yet been done; the formulation of the goals and objectives of the study.

The “Methods” block should provide a description of methods, research schemes, conditions for conducting experiments / observations and the necessary equipment, etc., allowing other scientists to reproduce the results obtained by the author, using only the text of the article.

The “Results and Discussions” block contains the actual results of the study (text, tables, graphs, diagrams, equations, photographs, figures), the interpretation of   research results, including the correspondence of the results obtained to the hypothesis of the study; limitations of research and synthesis of its results; suggestions for practical application; proposals for future research directions.

The “Conclusion” block contains summary of the article sections without repeating the formulations given in the previous sections of the article.

The article should be written in a scientific style that corresponds to the accuracy of the information given, convincing argumentation, logical sequence of presentation.

All requirements contained in this Instruction are binding. Manuscripts that do not meet the requirements of the journal are returned to the authors without consideration.
