Research Articles, Short Communications and Review Articles

Editorial procedure
All research articles, short communications and review articles undergo a peer review (it is about one month). Authors are requested to submit full version of manuscript including all author names.

Manuscript submission
Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before, that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else, and that its publication has been approved by all co-authors. If the submission wish to include figures, tables, or texts that have already been published elsewhere the authors are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when they submit papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors. Authors should submit their manuscripts by email. Manuscripts should be sent to popdynamf@gmail.com

Article Typing Requirements
The Journal admits for publishing articles in WinWord, and the editors transform them into PDF themselves. The editors do not admit files in PDF or PS LATEX.
All texts are to be typed in WinWord (Times New Roman, 12, 1.5 interval, British English), or in RTF. Using any text processors (ChiWriter, Lexicon, WordPerfect, etc.) is not allowed.
All texts should contain only symbols of the corresponding alphabet (for example, it is not allowed to use the letter "O" instead of the number "0" etc.). Graphic information (diagrams, photos, figures), if needed, can be presented in separate files (one file for a picture) in GIF, JPEG or TIFF.
Numbers presented in Roman figures are to be typed by the corresponding letters of the Latin alphabet (I, V, X, M, L, C). Formulae are to be typed in Microsoft Equation or MathType Equation.
The article is to start with a title typed in lower-case letters in great primer (18-point type). Then the list of the authors (their surnames and initials) should follow. The names of the authors are to be typed in 14-point type and separated by commas. If the work was accomplished in an organization, the name of the organization is to be mentioned in 12-point type. The title, the list of the authors and the names of the organizations are to be separated by blank lines and centered.
Key words are to be given on a separate line in 12-point type and centered. An article is to be made up as an organic unity, in order that printing the article in easy-readable form might be possible. Pages in an article should not be numbered.

Terminology
Manuscript should use the standard mathematical notation for formulae, symbols etc. Italic for single letters that denote mathematical constants, variables, and unknown quantities. Roman/upright for numerals, operators, and punctuation, and commonly defined functions or abbreviations, e.g., sin, e or exp, log, lim, etc. Bold for vectors and matrices.

References
Cite references in the text by name and year in parentheses. For examples, (Bazykin, 1985), (Svirezhev, Logofet, 1978, 1983), (Isaev et al., 2009) etc. The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work.

Tables
All tables should be numbered using Arabic numerals. Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order. For each table, please, supply a table caption (title). Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption. Footnotes of tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data, and included beneath the table body.

Figures
Numbering
All figures should be numbered using Arabic numerals. They should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order. Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.). If an appendix appears in the manuscript and it contains one or more figures, continue the consecutive numbering of the main text. Do not introduce any separate numeration. 

Figure Captions 
Each figure should have a concise caption and the captions should be included in the text file but not in the figure file. Figure captions begin with the term Fig., followed by the figure number. Identify previously published material by showing the original source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.

Permissions
When including figures that have already been published elsewhere, the authors must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s). Some publishers do not grant electronic rights for free and thus material from other sources should be used in such cases. 

Book Reviews
Book reviews present reviews of current books of interest to Population Dynamics readers. The length of a book review is to be limited to a maximum of 1000 words.

Conflict of Interest
All authors are requested to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationships with other people or organizations within three years of beginning the submitted work that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence.

Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.
