The major criteria in the selection process concern the significance of the contribution to the specific focus of the journal. Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published previously. In the case of simultaneous submission of manuscripts to several journals, the published article may later be retracted (i.e. withdrawn from the press). Monitoring of unauthorized citations is provided by services Antiplagiat and CrossCheck.

2. If you translate your text into English, please do so in correct English (either American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of both).

4. The title should be short and informative (less than 10 words) and should be convey your essential points clearly. The title is to be provided in Russian and English.

5. The abstract plays a role of an enhanced title. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions (200-250 words).

It consists of 4 distinct parts:

     1) Introduction

     2) Materials and Methods

     3) Results

     4) Discussion and Conclusions

The parts are indicated by secondary titles. Each part should contain relevant information. The abstract is to be provided in Russian and English.

6. The structure of the paper should contain the list of keywords (5-10 words) in Russian and English. They should reflect basic statements, results achieved and the terminology of the investigation.

7. Acknowledgements: List in this section those individuals who provided help during the research (e.g., providing language help, writing assistance or proof reading the article, etc.). The acknowledgements are to be provided in Russian and English.

8. The manuscript of the article should be presented in Russian or in English. Divide your article into clearly defined sections. Any subsection may be given a brief heading.

The order of sections: 1) Introduction; 2) Literature Review; 3) Materials and Methods; 4) Results; 5) Discussion and Conclusions.

1) Introduction is the challenge of the problem treated, its relevance, its connection with the chief tasks to be solved, its importance for the development of a definite area of science or for practical activity. The introduction should provide information that allows the reader to understand and assess the results of the research presented in the article, without any additional reference to other literary sources. First, the author should declare a theme of research. Next, the author should explain the theoretical and practical significance of the work and describe the most authoritative and accessible publications on this topic. In the introduction, the author must also refer to the problems left unresolved in previous studies. In addition, he or she must express the main idea of the publication, which is significantly different from modern ideas about the problem; the author must deepen or complement the approaches already known; the author must draw attention in the introduction to scientific circulation of new facts, conclusions, recommendations, and patterns. The purpose of the article follows from the formulation of the scientific problem.

2) Literature review (1-2 pp.): It is necessary to describe the recent principal studies and publications relied upon by the author; modern views on the issue; difficulties in the development of the subject; the allotment of the outstanding issues within the general problem of the article. It is advisable to consider 20-40 sources and compare the views of the authors; the language of the part taken from sources must be English.

3) Materials and methods (1-2 pp.): This section describes the process of the experiment, using techniques and equipment; provides detailed information about the target of research; indicates the sequence of research and justifies the choice of methods used (observation, survey, test, experiment, laboratory experience, analysis, modeling, learning and generalization, etc).

4) Results: In this section should be presented systematic analytical and statistical material. The research results should be described adequately, so that the reader can trace the process and assess the validity of the conclusions made by the author. This is the main section, which aims to prove a working hypothesis (or hypotheses) by analysis, synthesis and data clarification. If necessary, the results can be supported by illustrations (tables, graphs, drawings), presenting starting material or evidence minimized. It is important to illustrate without duplication of information already contained in the text . It is desirable to compare the results presented in the article with results in previous works of the author and other research works in this area. This comparison may reveal further novelty of the work and give it objectivity. Results of the research should be presented briefly, but they should contain enough information to assess the findings. Justification must be provided as to why these data were selected. All titles, signatures, and structural elements of graphs, tables, charts etc. should be in Russian and in English. Pictures can be presented in vector CDR or raster TIFF, JPG files with a resolution of at least 300 dpi. They must allow the possibility of moving and resizing. Pictures and graphs should have a clear image, sustained in black and white with hatching. The captions should not be part of a picture or graphic. Each image is a separate file. Schemas and graphs are executed in the built-in MS Word program or in MS Excel. They are placed in the text of the article, and also sent as separate files.

5) Discussion and conclusions: The conclusion must contain a brief summary of research results. The main points of the work must be repeated. It is better to present any repetition of the material with new formulations. It is necessary to compare the results with the target, indicated at the beginning of the article. In conclusion, the results are to be summarized from a theoretical and practical point of view; the main directions for further research are indicated in this area. It would be desirable to include the development prospect of the issues in the final part of the article.

9. Bibliography: The bibliography should be drawn up strictly according to the GOST P 7.0.5-2009 and in uniform format (in Russian and English). It would be desirable to refer to papers published in indexed journals with impact factor. It is advisable to refer to 30-40 sources (at least 20-30 recent sources). Citations of articles published in Integration of Education should include author, title, volume number, year, and page number, DOI and/or URL. The interested reader should be able to find the specified source as soon as possible.

10. Institutional affiliation of authors: Last name, first name, the name of the institution, the address of the institution, the place were the project occurred, the position and academic title of the author, ORCID ID, Researcher ID, e-mail, phone, e-mail, postal address for delivery of obligatory copy (in Russian and in English).

11. Authors' contributions. At the end of the manuscript, authors should explain in the notes the actual contribution of each collaborator in the work performed (Manuscript preparation: visualization/data presentation; Computation; Manuscript preparation: critical review, commentary or revision; Supervision; Resources provision; Manuscript preparation: writing the initial draft; performing the experiments; Methodology development; Investigation: data/evidence collection; Formal analysis; Project administration; Study conception; Data curation; Funding acquisition …). The order of the authors and co-authors of the article must be consistent in itself (in Russian and in English).

Postgraduate students need a certificate of education in graduate school. The author agrees to the terms of the enclosed license agreement by submission of the article.
