Articles (from 6 to 12 pages) prepared on the basis of materials obtained as a result of scientific processing of museum collections or collected during field research, which correspond to the directions of the museum's activity, short messages (2 pages), notes are accepted for publication. p.).
Articles (from 6 to 12 pages) are accepted for publication, prepared on the basis of materials obtained as a result of scientific research of museum collections or collected during field research, which correspond to the directions of activity of the museum, short messages (2 pages), notes (0.5 pages).

The structure of articles, as a rule, should contain the following elements: Introduction (without title), Material and methods of research, Research results (and their discussion), Conclusions, Used literature (without title), Summary (in Ukrainian and English at least 1800 characters) without spaces and Keywords (6-8 words or phrases).
The paper should be typed on a computer (Times New Roman font, size 10, space 0.5 cm), printed on one side of A-4 paper at 1 interval; the width of the margins on the left is 20, on the right - 60, on the top - 32, on the bottom - 75 mm.

In geobotanical articles the names of the formations are given only in Latin, the names of species in the associations are also given in Latin, without authors.

When referring to a literary source in the text in square brackets, the order number which the corresponding work has in the list of references should be given. The works of the same author (or with co-authors) are arranged in chronological order.
Reviewing of submitted articles is closed. Leading specialists in the above mentioned scientific fields are involved in it. The editorial board may refuse to publish articles that do not comply with the "Guidelines for Authors," or whose review has revealed a lack of scientific background, or return the articles to authors for revision.
