Research Articles, Short
Communications and Review Articles
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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 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.
This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely
