RULES FOR THE PREPARATION OF ARTICLES FOR PUBLICATION IN THE JOURNAL
"Emergency Surgery" named AFTER I.I. Janelidze
1. EDITORIAL ETHICS AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
The article must have a supervisor's visa and be accompanied by an official referral from the institution where the work was performed (see the "Direction" below). In the direction, it should be indicated whether the article is a fragment of a dissertation work.
The article must be signed by all the authors.
It is forbidden to send to the editorial office works that have been published or previously sent for publication in other publications.
When submitting a manuscript, the authors are responsible for disclosing their financial and other conflicting interests that may affect their work.
If there are sponsors, the authors should indicate their role in determining the structure of the study, collecting, analyzing and interpreting data, as well as deciding to publish the results. If the sources of funding did not participate in such actions, this should also be noted in the attached referral form (see above).
It is prohibited to publish any information that allows the identification of the patient (to indicate his name, initials, numbers of medical records in photographs, when compiling written descriptions and pedigrees), except in cases where it is of great scientific value and the patient (his parents or guardians) has given informed written consent to this. Upon receipt of consent, this should be reported in the published article.
Human and animal rights.
If the article contains a description of human experiments, it is necessary to indicate whether they met the ethical standards of the Committee on Human Experiments (part of the institution where the work was performed, or regional) or the Helsinki Declaration of 1975 and its revised version of 2000.
When describing animal experiments, it should be indicated whether the maintenance and use of laboratory animals corresponded to the rules adopted at the institution, the recommendations of the national research Council, and national laws.
The author is responsible for the correctness of the bibliographic data.
2. THE EDITORIAL BOARD RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SHORTEN AND EDIT ACCEPTED WORKS.
The date of registration of the article is considered to be the time of receipt of the final (revised in accordance with the comments of the editorial board or reviewer) version of the article.

4. SENDING ARTICLES
It is sent to the e-mail address of the editorial office of the journal: firstname.lastname@example.org

• Scanned referral form with the supervisor's visa (pdf or jpeg file).
5. ANNOTATION REQUIREMENTS
The abstract is one of the key sections of a scientific article. The decision on the expediency of submitting an article for review is made primarily based on the compliance of the abstract with the following requirements.
(1) The abstract should be structured and include five mandatory sections reflecting the chronological order of the research: justification, purpose, material and methods, results and conclusion /conclusions (structured annotations are more informative than unstructured ones, the need for structuring is dictated by the advantages of searching for ordered information in electronic databases).
1) Justification: a brief (1-3 sentences) description of the problem.
2) Purpose: an extremely specific description of the main purpose of the study and the research issue, the solution of which required the study.
3) Methods: a) the objects of the study, b) the presence of a comparison group, c) criteria for inclusion in the compared groups, d) the presence and characteristics of the intervention, e) the location of the study, f) the duration of the study, g) evaluation of the results, h) description of the evaluation methods.
4) Results: a brief description of the research objects with an assessment of the outcomes related to the goal.
5) Conclusion: a brief summary of the results related to the main purpose of the study. Excessive generalizations should be avoided.
(2) The annotation SHOULD NOT contain trade names of medical products.
(3) The abstract is made in a separate file. The volume is up to 2500 characters. The font is Times New Roman.
6. REQUIREMENTS FOR DRAWINGS
Drawings in tiff, jpeg or png format are provided in the text of the work (the number and description are located below the drawing) or attached as separate files (all drawings are in one zip or rar archive folder). Each file is named by the number of the figure (for example: Fig-1, Fig-2a, Fig-2b, etc.). Each figure should have a common title and a transcript of all abbreviations.
The captions to the graphs indicate the designations along the abscissa and ordinate axes and units of measurement, and explanations for each curve are provided. The captions to the microphotographs indicate the method of coloring and magnification.
All illustrations must be of high quality. The photos must have sufficient resolution, and the numbers and letters must be clearly readable at the size in which the illustration will be printed in the magazine.
7. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE TEXT OF THE ARTICLE
The article should be printed in Times New Roman font, font size 10, spacing 1.15, margins: 2 cm above and below, 2.25 cm on the sides. Automatic word wrapping cannot be used.
The VOLUME for original research should not exceed 25,000 characters, for lectures and reviews — 60,000 characters.
The structure and design are described in detail in the template (see the "Direction" below).
The presentation of the article should be clear, concise, without long historical introductions and repetitions.
The manuscript may be accompanied by a dictionary of terms (unclear, which may cause difficulties for the reader to read).
In addition to the generally accepted abbreviations of units of measurement, physical, chemical and mathematical quantities and terms (for example, DNA), abbreviations of phrases that are often repeated in the text are allowed. All letter designations and abbreviations entered by the author must be deciphered in the text at their first mention. Abbreviations of simple words are not allowed, even if they are often repeated.
The doses of medicines, units of measurement and other numerical values should be indicated in the SI system.

9. INFORMATION ABOUT THE AUTHORS
For correspondence, specify the coordinates of the responsible author (e-mail address; mobile phone number for the editorial office).
It is MANDATORY to specify the ORCID for all authors. If there is no ORCID number, it must be obtained by registering on the website https://orcid.org/
ORCID is a registry of unique identifiers of scientists and at the same time an appropriate method linking research activities with these identifiers. To date, this is the only way to uniquely identify the personality of a scientist, especially in situations where the full names of the authors match.
