In order for papers submitted to be published in the journal “Problems of Physics, Mathematics and Technics” the following rules should be taken into account:
Contents of a paper should be written in line with the scope of the journal. The paper should be written in Russian, Belarusian and English, edited thoroughly and submitted in two copies to the Editorial Office. The manuscript should be printed on A4 white paper with all pages numbered. In addition, the authors must submit the electronic version of their manuscript either on a CD or by e-mail (e-mail: pfmt*gsu.by).
To prepare a paper it is possible to use MS Word for Windows (2000/2003), Times New Roman type, 14 pt. All margins are 2 cm. The author may also use 12 pt LaTeX in standard style article without redefinition of the margins and introduction of the author’s commands.
Index UDC is sited in the left corner of the first page. The title of the paper in capital letters is followed by the name(s) of the author(s), authors' affiliations and full postal addresses next to which are an abstract of no more than ten lines and keywords. Relevant keywords should be placed just after the Abstract.
A paper, as a rule, should include Introduction, Body Text, Conclusion and Literature. The title of the paper must be concise. It describes the main idea of your research. In the Introduction the author gives a brief review of literature, his grounds and specific objectives, he describes links with scientific and practical branches. All background information such as reference to the papers of others authors and some previous publications (including foreign ones) in the field of investigation is necessary.
The main part should contain description of the techniques used and objects of investigation within a large scientific framework. This part may be divided into subsection (with explanatory headings). It provides the readers with the analysis of the publications on the problem described in these subsections.
Formulas, figures and tables should be sequentially numbered in the framework of the section, for example: (1.1), (2.3), figure 1.1, table 2.1. The author should number only the formulas with appropriate references. The formula number is placed on the right side of the page and the formula itself is centred.
Figures and tables should be put into a contextual framework. The size of figures and charts does not exceed 10õ15 cm. Halftone photos should be glossy and contrast. Do not repeat extensively in the text the data you have presented in tables and figures.
Each table should have the heading, in which units of measure describe the values under consideration. All measurements and data should be given in SI units, or if SI units do not exist, in an international accepted unit. The authors are advised to avoid abbreviations except for generally accepted ones (i. e., etc.). Define all abbreviations the first time they are used.
In the Conclusion the received data are described in concise form. The novelty of these results, advantages and possibility of practical use are presented.
Publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following the text of the manuscript. References should be given in their original spelling, numbered in the order they appear in the text and contain full bibliography. Please, do not cite unpublished papers. The numbers of references are sited in square brackets (e.g. , ).

- covering letter of the organization in which the work was done with a request for publication;

Then the paper is sent to the Editorial Board to be reviewed. The Editorial Office informs the authors of paper denial and the reviewer's conclusion without returning the manuscript. A request to revise the manuscript does not imply that the paper is accepted for publication since it will be rereviewed and considered by the Editorial Board. The authors of the rejected paper have the right to apply for its reconsideration.
The Editorial Board has the right to edit the manuscript and abridge it without misrepresenting the paper contents.
Papers not meeting the above requirements are denied and returned to the authors. The date of receipt of the final version by the Editorial Office is considered as the submission date.
Authors are responsible for the submission of their publication because submission is a representation that the paper has not been previously published and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The Editorial Board charters toppriority for postgraduate students (postgraduate course, persons working for doctor's degree, competitors for scientific degree) during the current year of the completion of a course. Publication of the paper is free of charge.
Samples of the preparation of an article, information about the authors, expert opinion and the text of the treaty on the transfer of the copyright are placed on the site http://pfmt.gsu.by.
