Acta Scientiae et Intellectus accepts submissions of original papers in English, French, Russian and Spanish. Papers submitted to the review cannot be under editorial process in another journal. The template for preparing your papers can be found here.
Each paper has to submitted by email (subject title: ASI Submission) to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission is completed upon receiving a confirmation email. The length of the paper should be about 10 single-spaced pages, and not exceed 30 single-spaced pages.
Submit the paper in one text file. Form and content of the text file should be carefully checked to exclude the need for later corrections.
The MS Word should start with a title page that would include the name(s) of the author(s), a concise and informative title, the affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s), e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the communicating author.
The MS Word file should also include abstract (no more than 200 words) in English, three to eight keywords, and the text itself. As much as possible, avoid footnotes as they distract readers from the main text; short footnotes for few bibliographic references should be especially avoided. Number only equations that are referenced in the text.
Long mathematical proofs should appear in an appendix. The main body of the text should focus on the thrust, structure and scientific intuition of the argumentation.
Tables should have a title and a legend explaining any abbreviation used in that table. Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data).
All figures must be in JPEG format (200 dpi, with sufficiently large Times font).
Acknowledgements should be as brief as possible. Any grant that requires acknowledgement should be mentioned. The names of funding organizations should be written in full.
We accept papers only in MS Word:
Type equations in Equation Editor or Math Type clearly with one space before and after mathematical function signs except in subscripts and superscripts. Type the main components, the equal sign, and the fraction bar on the main line of typing.
Data policy: Authors are expected to provide whatever material is needed to ensure that their results can be replicated. This includes especially datasets (or instructions on how to access third-party datasets, accompanied by a proper description of what was used in the paper), computer programs (sometimes a detailed description of code is sufficient), technical appendices, supplementary tables and proofs, etc. The data should be accompanied by a message ("readme" file) explaining the structure of the data. In particular, it should explain how many observations there are, what each variable is, how the data are organized in the data files, and the sources from which the data were taken.
In the text as well as in footnotes, references should be cited by author and year (e.g. Kasimov et al. (2009) or Abilov and Sokolov (1999)). In case the author lists the references in brackets, cite as this (e.g. Kasimov et al. (2009) or Abilov and Sokolov (1999)). They should be listed in alphabetical order in the reference list.
The reference list should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications should only be mentioned in the text. A paper published online but not yet in print can be cited using the Digital Object Identifier (DOI). If available, the DOI can also be added at the end of references already published.
Journals: names and initials of all authors; year in parentheses; full title of paper cited; short title of journal; volume number; isme number in parentheses; first and last page numbers; DOI, if applicable. Example:
Winnicott, D. (1953), Transitional Objects and Transitional Phenomena - A Study of the First Not-Me Possession, International Journal of Psycho-Analysis, 3(34), pp. 89-97.
Books: names and initials of all authors; year; full title; edition; place of publication; publisher. Example:

Proofreading: Authors should make their proof corrections on a printout of the pdf file or use the online correction facilities provided with the proof. They should check that the text is complete and that all figures and tables are included. The author is entitled to formal corrections only. Substantial changes in content, e.g. new results, corrected values, title and authorship, are not allowed without the approval of the responsible editor. After online publication, further changes can only be made in the form of an Erratum, which will be hyperlinked to the article.
The Editors reserve the right to return to the authors any manuscript that in their opinion is not suitable for publication in ASI, without expressly stipulating the reasons for doing so. Under no circumstances the identity of the reviewers and referees for individual articles will be disclosed to the authors, or to any other third party.
