REQUIREMENTS FOR PAPERS by
“PROBLEMS OF POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY”
(including SCOPUS requirements)
The structure of the article should comply with the HAC (Resolution № 7-05\1 by 15.01.2003) and contain: problem definition, analysis of recent research and publications, tasks and goals, the main part, conclusions, references. The references are divided into 2 lists: 1) Literature by HAC requirements and 2) Reference (same references, issued with the standard of the American Psychological Association APA 6th – to enable counting of citation index). Article title, author’s name, keywords and abstracts submitted in three languages (Ukrainian, Russian, English).
Formal requirements for abstracts: 100-150 words, professional English (not automatic or illiterate translation). The decision on including paper to the collection will be taken by English-speaking experts according to English abstract.
Requirements for content:
Abstract briefly describes the contents of the article on actual topic for international scientific community. A common method of annotating is to repeat structure of the article (introduction, purpose and objectives, methods, results, conclusions). The text of the abstract must be coherent, one sentence accorded to the other. Abstract enables using of your work by other authors: for quotes in further or related works, discussions, request for the full article. So it should not be considered as supplemental part, but as a single source of information about the study.
The main task of the study should describe as it was conducted (without the methodological details) summarizing the important conclusions and their meaning for science.
Main goals, topic and subject of the study should be pointed in the abstract if they are not obvious with the title. Information from the title in the abstract is not repeated.
Methods could be described when there is the innovation on its usage.
The results are exact theoretical, empirical facts and patterns of interaction.
In an abstract only the most important results are submitted. Preferred results are with long-term significance, important discoveries, conclusions which reject existing theories or have practical meaning.
Abstract should not contain the material (facts, estimates, hypotheses, recommendations) that are not in paper.
Please avoid historical references, previous author’s articles references or well known facts.
Do not include introductory words, unnecessary details.
Facilitate finding of the article by search engines. Do not repeat terms from the title and abstract. It’s better to use terms from the article and related area or other significant words.

Author’s last name should be written as it spelled in the passport so it’s better to take it from English sources.
Number of authors is not limited as it is in the HAC requirements (but still within reason) so all of them could be mentioned for quotation indexing.

English-language sources should be included as in the Literature for HAC and as well in the Reference list with duplication. Automated quotation system only works with a list of References.
