For Authors

The journal “Radiophysics and Electronics” publishes articles that correspond to the journal’s type and scientific and technical level. The presentation should be clear and structured (introduction, original part, results and discussions, conclusions, references). The essence of obtained results and their novelty should be shown with maximum clarity and clearness. The analysis of preceding works devoted to the problem should be given. And the research purpose should be formulated.


Authors should follow the rules below:

1. Working languages of the journal are Russian, Ukrainian, or English (optional).

2. The abstract, key words, authors’ surnames and initials, and the title are given in Russian, Ukrainian, and English.

3. The abstract must be informative (without general words and phrases), reflect the paper main contents and research results, correspond structurally to the logic of statement in the paper, and necessarily include the followings parts: Purpose, Design/methodology/approach, Findings, and Conclusions. The abstract is 1800-2000 characters or 200–250 words.

4. It is obligatory to indicate the name and address of the organization, and the e-mail address.

5. PACS index is optional and assigned by the author(s) in accordance with the last release of Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme 2010, https://publishing.aip.org/publishing/pacs/pacs-2010-regular-edition

6. The paper is sent to the editors and must have: a single line spacing, top and bottom margins 3 cm, left and right 2.5 cm. The manuscript is in WORD 97-2003 (*.DOC, *.DOCX, *.RTF), Times New Roman 11, in two columns (column width 7.6 cm, space between columns 0.8 cm, indentation 1.25 cm). The volume does not exceed 22 pages of A4 format, including tables and figures (not more than six). The volume of brief communications and letters to the editors – 3 pages. The contents and volume of review publications should be agreed by the authors with the Editorial Board, therefore, for preliminary consideration the abstract and structural plan of the paper are required. After reviewing and proofreading, the paper is corrected by the author and is sent to the editors again. The initial manuscript with the editors’ corrections is also sent back to the editors.

7. It is essential to avoid unfounded introduction of new terms and use of jargon. Acronyms must be interpreted the first time they are mentioned.

8. Formulas and mathematical symbols are in Equation Editor 3.0 from MS Word for Windows. It is necessary to distinguish fonts: Latin lower-case and upper-case, Greek lower-case – italics; chemical elements, Greek upper-case, numbers – regular; matrix, operator – demibold. Formula sizes: full – 11; sub/super – 8; sub-sub/super – 6; symbol – 18; sub-symbol – 12. Only referred formulas are numbered.

9. Figures are in Corel DRAW (*.CDR), Origin (*.OPJ, .OGG). The originals of the figures must be in separate files. Figures created in other program packages must be exported in one of the following formats: (*.GIF), (*.JPG), (*.TIF). Tone figures must be contrast (resolution not less than 330 dpi).

The figure width for one column does not exceed 7.6 cm, and the total height of figures with one caption (fig. 1, a, b, c...) – 20 cm. The maximal size of a figure for two columns is 16x20 cm. Font – Times new Roman 9.

Captions on axes must correspond to the symbols in the article. Legends, formulas, description elements should be in captions (3-4 lines) or in the text. It is recommended to use black and white circles, squares and triangles, dashed lines, dot-and-dash lines, numeration of curves.

It is also necessary to attach some contact information (surname, name and patronymic, telephone (fax) and e-mail).


An agreement for assignment of copyright to the Editorial Board is also sent to the editors. (Agreement).

Paper construction scheme

UDC index

PACS index

Authors’ initials and surnames

Complete names and postal addresses of institutions represented by the authors, authors’ e-mails.

Paper title in Russian, Ukrainian, and English

Abstract in Russian, Ukrainian, and English

Key words in Russian, Ukrainian, and English (5-8 words).

Paper text with the general scheme:

  • introduction;
  • methods and research results;
  • discussion of results;
  • conclusions;
  • references.

These requirements meet the requirements of international databases (DB), including SCOPUS.

The title must be informative, and have only common abbreviations.

The bibliographic list should correspond to the sequence of references in the text and contain titles (including titles of journal papers) of printed materials accessible to the readers (reference to unpublished works, preprints and publications in hard-to-reach sources are not permitted). References to the sources are given as serial numbers in square brackets. For making references, the RPE editors suggest using one of the recommended SCOPUS DB standards – Harvard Style. For more details see:


Correct description of sources in references guarantees that cited publication will be taken into account while evaluating scientific activity of its authors (organization, region, country). The citation index of the journal defines its scientific level, authority, efficiency of the Editorial Board, etc. That is why the most important components in bibliographic references are authors’ surnames and journals titles. To include all the authors in a DB it is necessary to list all of them in the article description.

The most exact identification of papers from electronic journals can be obtained by indicating the unique identifier used almost by all the leading foreign journals for identification of their papers (Digital Object Identifier – DOI). The DOI system is an international ISO standard (http://www.doi.org/). That is why if the paper has a DOI it should be mentioned in references. Then, even in case of inexact bibliographic description, the paper reference will be correctly taken into account.
