In other words, the introduction should answer the question: what is known in this area; what remains unknown; what is the task of this work.

The section “Methodology” should contain information about objects of the research, experimental conditions, analytical methods, devices and reagents. This section also provides information about retries of experiments, methods of statistical analysis of results.

In the section “Results” it is necessary to describe the detected effects. The presentation of the results should reflect common factors that follow from the received data.

The purpose of the section “Discussion” is the generalization and interpretation of the results, the analysis of cause-effect relationships between the detected effects. The obtained information should be compared with the available literature and show its novelty. The discussion should conclude with the answer to the question posed in the introduction.

References (list of reference links) and designation of quotations in the text are made in Vancouver style. The designation of quotations in the text is given in square brackets in Arabic numerals; consecutive numbering is used (in the order of mention in the text). If the surname of the author of the quoted work is indicated in a paraphrase or a quotation inside the line, the designation of quotation is placed immediately after the last name. If the author's surname is not specified in the text, then designation of quotation is put at the end of the quoted text after the punctuation marks. If the source is mentioned in the text again, it should be assigned the same number. When quoting several sources at the same time, it is necessary to list each number in brackets, with a comma or dash without gap.
Example: ... navigation controlled laser interstitial thermal therapy method. [11,16,18-20]

The bibliographic description of the list of reference links

If the publication contains from one to six authors, the reference should list them all with a comma. If authors are more than six, it is necessary to list six authors with a comma and to note “et. al.” The reference should reduce the number of pages, where possible, for example, if the quotation is placed on pages 123-126, then the reference is 123-6. If the publication has a DOI, then it should be specified after the URL. It is necessary to reduce the names of the months in the dates of the treatment/publication, etc. The names of the journals should be decreased.
