Let us bring to your notice that if you want to publish an article in our Journal, there are four essential requirements you ought to follow. Every article must contain convincing proofs aiming to boost the author’s conclusions; be relevant and contain new research; be of interest for the scientists in the field of knowledge the article does with; be of interest for the researchers of other related fields.
Before you submit the article to the Journal, you have to sign a licensing contract with the Russian Academy of Sciences. You can receive the contract by e-mail or find it on the websites: www.ilaran.ru and www.la.jes.su. The articles are not accepted without the signed contract.

The works are published free of charge. The manuscripts are not given back to the author.
