Rules for preparing manuscripts for publication in the journal
"Physics and Chemistry of Materials Treatment"

The Editorial Board of the journal "Physics and Chemistry of Materials Treatment" asks the authors submitting manuscripts to adhere the following rules.

The submission must include the following:
1. direction from the organization, where it was performed;
2. permission to publish (for authors from the Russian Federation);
3. contract for the transfer of copyright

Authors must submit a copy of the manuscript with the full name, information about each of the authors (full name, place and address of work, academic title, position, research interests, e-mail address), abstract and a list of key words in Russian and English languages. It is necessary to clearly separate article on logically complete sections (introduction, experimental method, results, discussion, conclusions). The authors should draw attention to the mandatory formulation of conclusions at the end. The manuscript should be signed by the authors.

References should be given to the extent of citing.

For article: authors' names, initials, article title, journal title, year, volume, number, pages (first-last).

For books: authors' names, initials, title, place of publication (city), publisher, year, volume (number of pages).

For articles in the collection: the authors' surnames and initials, title of the article, the name (s) of the editor (s), place of publication (city), publisher, year, pages (first-last)
