Submission of Manuscripts
Instructions for Authors
Information Technologies and Control accepts for possible consideration unpublished quality scientific manuscripts. Please note that the journal uses software to screen manuscripts for unoriginal material.
Submitted manuscripts must be written in English and should be in Microsoft Word format. (Times New Roman 12 p, single spacing).
The length of manuscripts is limited to: 16 pages for scientific papers, 20 pages for surveys and 8 pages for application papers. First page must contain:
- Title of paper,
- Name, affiliation and mailing address (including e-mail) of each author,
- Preferred address for correspondence,
- Abstract (not exceeding 150 words),
- Keywords (not exceeding five),
- Footnotes (if desired) containing acknowledgment of financial or other support.
Manuscripts should include: an introduction with statement of the problem under consideration and current state-of-the-art of the existing solutions, main text presenting the investigation, and conclusion containing evaluation of the results obtained. Authors must adhere to SI units. Units are not italicised. A descriptive, intuitive explanation is preferred to extended formal development (theorems, lemmas, etc) when technology components and applications are presented. Detailed mathematical derivations should be put in appendixes. References should appear as a separate bibliography at the end of the paper, numbered in square brackets, e.g., . References to works published in languages other than English should be translated into English with the original languages given in brackets after the translated text, e.g. (in Russian). For the style of overall layout see examples in the journal issues.
