- Accepted types of materials. Original articles, reviews, descriptions of clinical cases, discussion materials, lectures, notes from practice, reviews, commentaries of congresses, conferences and other events, letters to the Editorial Board, brief reports, abstracts of articles by foreign authors shall be accepted for publication.

The exception is revised and supplemented materials or materials submitted for publication as a short summary in the proceedings of a scientific meeting or symposium.
- Accuracy of Information. All authors of the article shall fully liable for the information they publish. The Editorial Board shall not be liable for the accuracy of the information provided by the authors, but may, in accordance with the APAIR Declaration of Publishing Ethics, request additional information to clarify the data in the paper.
- Structuring of the article in accordance with the principles of research paper. The proposed article shall be structured in accordance with the principles of writing scientific articles. Preference is given to articles made in accordance with the requirements of the Journal. The article may be sent for preliminary approval by the Editorial Board, but after receiving such approval, it shall be drawn up strictly in accordance with the layout requirements.
- Research paper length. The maximum recommended length of articles is as follows: for research papers — 25,000 characters with spaces, bibliography – up to 25 sources; for review papers – 35,000 characters, bibliography – up to 40 sources. The length of the article and the number of sources may be expanded in agreement with the Editorial Board and the Chief Editor.
- Conflict of interest statement. Each paper shall be accompanied by a letter stating that there is no conflict of interest or indicate the same in the manuscript of the article.
- Cover letter. The cover letter shall specify the title of the article, contact details of the main author, and lists all authors of the paper, starting with the author who made the greatest contribution to the study. According to the APAIR Declaration of Publishing Ethics, interaction with co-authors shall be the responsibility of the main author. The main author shall indicate in the letter that the final version of the research paper has been approved by the co-authors and that all authors (co-authors) have agreed to publish it, and that there is no conflict of interest between all participants in the publishing process. The letter shall be sealed by the institution and signed by the main author.
- Publication ethics. Research papers shall comply with the principles of scientific ethics. Papers that grossly violate the principles of GCP (Good Clinical Practice) and the WMA (World Medical Association) Helsinki Declaration shall not be accepted for publication .
- Patient’s personal data protection. It is forbidden to publish any information that can identify the patient (written descriptions, photographs, kindred), except in cases where it is of great scientific value and the patient (or patient’s parents or legal representatives) has given written consent to that. Non-material details that help identify the patient shall be omitted. However, distorting or falsifying data in order to achieve anonymity is prohibited. As a rule, complete anonymity is difficult to maintain (for example, a black stripe covering the patient’s eyes in photographs is not a sufficient guarantee of anonymity), so if there is the slightest doubt, it is necessary to inform the patient and obtain his/her consent to publishing the available materials.
