The composition of the members of the editorial board at Premier Publishing includes candidates and doctors of sciences in accordance with the profiles of the journals that are in the publishing house. Each member of the editorial board has its own scientific profile and specializes in a particular issue. The reviewers do not evaluate the potential impact of the article in this area or its novelty. These subjective judgments may delay the publication of a work that may later turn out to be significant. Premier Publishing promotes a rigorous peer review process based on the scientific soundness and technical quality of the article. 


• Upon receipt of the article, the correspondent is asked to clarify that the article has not been published elsewhere. 

• The manuscript is checked for compliance with the main technical requirements. 

• The corresponding author receives a confirmation email informing them that the manuscript is structured correctly. 

• Despite the fact that the authors are responsible for potential plagiarism, the editors use specialized software to scan the content of the article for plagiarism. 

• The editors reserve the right to return to the authors, without review, incorrectly formatted manuscripts or unauthorized materials. 

• Reviewers for the manuscript are assigned. 

• We use double blind peer review. 

The time it takes to complete a review depends on many factors. While we strive to ensure peer review within a reasonable timeframe, prompt publication cannot be guaranteed. If necessary, proofreading of the content can be requested from the author(s). 

Editors of Premier Publishing can offer authors their professional proofreading services. However, the author(s) are always informed that the use of these services is optional. However, the author(s) must provide the final version without grammatical or punctuation errors. 

Several types of solutions are possible. These include: 

- Accept the manuscript in the form in which it was submitted; 

- Accept it with revision 

- Reject a manuscript because it does not meet the journal's criteria.


Premier Publishing is an independent publisher. To date, the publisher has not received any grant or funding for publication. With a low level of processing costs of articles and serves only to cover the cost of publication.

The cost of publishing an article in each journal is different and depends on the volume of the article and the particular journal. The article processing fee covers operating costs, review management, website maintenance, archiving, peer review, and technical editing of the article.

The article processing fee does not include professional editing or proofreading, which are available for an additional fee.

After the article is accepted, the authors will be sent a link to make an online payment.

The correct design of the list of references causes the greatest difficulties. Therefore, here are some generalized guidelines.

  • Do not allow the reference list to be inconsistent with the citations in the text
  • Check for the absence of quotation marks ("..."), which are characteristic of some languages.
  • Check for the absence of the "/" sign between sources or authors.
  • Put dots at the end of each source paragraph, except for references.
  • For authors, first the last name, then the first name. A comma after the last name.
  • Year in parentheses immediately following the author or authors.
  • For foreign language sources, middle names are optional. If you do specify the patronymic - you do not need to write it in full, the initial is sufficient.
  • Foreign sources are indicated with the language in which they are written, for example, (In Russ.).
  • The title is written in italics. There is no boldface in sources.
  • If a DOI is assigned to a reference source, it should be indicated at the end of the source.

Formatting references in the text

If the names of the author of the source are included in the sentence structure, the year of publication should be given in parentheses after the author. If the names of the author of the source are not part of the sentence structure, the names of the author and years of publication should be included in brackets. If there are multiple sources, they are separated by semicolons. For example: Using the standard APA style "increases the ease of perception of the document" (Kulikov, 2001). This was confirmed in 2003 by Prof. Ilyina (2003). Many researchers note the importance of standardization for scientific publications (Kulikov, 2001; Ilyina, 2003; Fedorov, 2007).

Headings and their layout

To organize information, a scientific publication is divided into sections. Each of the sections is headed by a title. The headings define the content of the sections of the paper. Make the headings descriptive and concise. Five levels of headings are provided. The structure and number of headings is determined by the scope and complexity of the paper. It is easiest to show the rules of headings design by example:

Heading Level 1

Heading Level 2

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. In nec risus pretium, condimentum leo imperdiet, iaculis lacus. Curabitur volutpat sagittis facilisis.

Heading Level 3

Etiam tempor nisl eu metus facilisis, eget venenatis elit varius. Maecenas nec justo lobortis nulla convallis dapibus commodo ac velit.

Heading Level 4. Vestibulum fringilla eleifend ante, ut cursus eros condimentum. In urna odio, tempus sit amet erat ullamcorper, iaculis condimentum lectus.

Heading Level 5. Phasellus efficitur mi ligula, ac pretium nulla maximus et. Duis imperdiet varius eros eget lacinia. Sed laoreet commodo ex eget vestibulum.

 Headings are not numbered. Most words in them are capitalized.

Table formatting

It is not allowed to use images of tables instead of tables. Tables are numbered, the title is typed in italics. The same font is used for tables as for the whole document. If the tables do not fit on one page in height, the headings are duplicated on each page. If they don't fit width-wise, use landscape orientation.

As with headings, it is better to show the design of tables by example:

Table 1. Means, Standard Deviations, and One-Way Analyses of Variance in Psychological and Social Resources and Cognitive Appraisals




F(1, 294)
















Social support







Cognitive appraisals






















***p < .001.

Note. The data were obtained by the author in the course of a sociological study in 2019

Vertical lines are not used. Use horizontal lines that help you understand the information, such as a headline or summary.

Formatting of charts, figures or diagrams

The general design of figures is similar to that of tables. At the top is the number and title, then the figure itself and below (if necessary) the notes. The use of colored figures is allowed. Pay attention to sufficient contrast when choosing colors for the image. It is better to combine colors with different line styles to increase legibility. For example:

Figure 1. Student Happiness Ratings as a Function of Year and Country of Origin

When creating a figure, make sure that:

  • images are clear, legible
  • lines are smooth and clear
  • the font is legible and simple, 8 to 14 pt sans serif is recommended.
  • units of measurement are indicated
  • axes are clearly labeled
  • elements in the figure are clearly labeled or explained

Formulas formatting

One-line mathematical expressions, equations, and formulas with only numbers, letters, one-line indices, parentheses, and action signs are typed as text. For example: y2 = 3325 + 0.1937x1 + 0.0425x3.  Mathematical expressions, equations, and formulas containing special symbols are included using the built-in Microsoft Equation or MathType formula editor; each formula is inserted as an independent object. Formulas have separate end-to-end numbering. The numbering is indicated in parentheses to the right of the formula. It is not allowed to use figures instead of formulas.

Example of formulas on a separate line with numbering.

Formatting of program code fragments

If it is necessary to give an example of a program or its fragment, the code is typed in monospaced font (Corier New) with indents corresponding to the code logic.

Example of program code:



while cnt >= 0:


    if m < 0:




If the requirements listed above are difficult to understand, format your article using the analogy on the next page. Alternatively, you can use a customized MS Word template for APA style. To do this, select the "Create" command in the MS Word editor and write APA in the search bar.  Use the found template to create an article.
