Abstract  (  brief content)


Abstract should be concise and informative (of no more than 200-250 words, approximately one page), reflecting the main content of the article, describing the purpose of the research, summarizing main results of the research and representing its theoretical and practical importance. The article should be well structured. The abstract is presented separately from the article. References should, therefore, be avoided.


General superfluous words which increase only the volume of the text, but will not contribute to the opening of the article content,  should be avoided. In short, it should be essentially original.



Immediately after the abstract, provide keywords, maximum   5- 8 words. Only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible.




Authors are required to highlight the essence of the problem; the goal; the hypothesis and the importance of their papers; also to review the literature, namely the most interesting and original works, including the latest editions. A large number of references (which has no connection with the subject); or inappropriate inserts are not recommended. Achieved results should be concise.



The article should be methodically correct,  i.e. to show the usage of modern research methods. Describe how you studied the issue: give an extensive information.


Results should be clear and concise. Organize this section according to the hypothesis/thesis. Results are not interpreted here. Use clear illustrations( charts, tables, images etc.). Illustrations and text shouldn’t duplicate each other. Titles of illustrations must have an independent meaning. The presented material should be interpreted. Readers first look at illustrations then read, therefore, the illustrations should be clear and informative.


This section should show the importance of the results of work,  and not repeat them. Sometimes it is possible to combine Results and Discussion  (unite)  sections. Avoid using extensive citations and review of published literature. Identify what your results mean. Discussion is an important part. It should correspond to the results. Don’t ignore the papers the results of which are contrary to yours – have a discussion with them and assure the readers in your correctness. Discuss the results of your hidden content and compare your results with the previous researches.



Main conclusions of the study may be presented in the Conclusion section, which may stand alone or be a sub-section of the Results and Discussion section.

Footnotes should be used sparingly. If there is something important, write it in the text, otherwise, exclude it. Number them consistently using Arabic numbers with the help of text processing program. Otherwise, indicate the position of footnotes in the text by asterisk (*) and present the note on the same page at the end of the text.


Citation Form

Citation in text

The citations and bibliographies of the articles to be published should be in APA style. Authors should use Microsoft Word bibliography toolkit (REFERENCES), or bibliography management software (e.g. Mendeley, Zotero, RefMan, Endnote, JabRef).

Reference style: The quotation in the scientific publication is separated from the main text by quotation marks (""). At the end of the citation, the index should contain the parentheses indicating the surname of the author of the cited text in the original language, the year of publication of the text, followed by a colon and corresponding page. For example (Takaishvili, 1920: 23).

Please, ensure that every reference cited in the text is also presented in the reference list and vice versa. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list but may be mentioned in the text. If these sources are listed in the source list, then they must meet the standard style of reference in the journal. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.


Indicating  reference and resources

The literature and sources used are listed on the alphabetical order. Non-Georgian literature and sources where the Latin font is used (eg English, German) are given in the original language. References and sources where the Latin font is not used (eg Georgian, Armenian) should be presented both in a transliteration form and in the original language. Transliteration of Georgian literature and sources should be done on the "Model of the Georgian National System of Romanization" (see www.google.com - under this heading). You can install the transliteration font on your computer, or implement transliteration of the Georgian text programmatically (e.g., https://translit.net/ge/; http://ge.translit.cc/).
