“Water & Purification Technologies” Journal publishes articles that contain information about scientific achievements and technological developments meeting the thematic scope of the Journal.

According to the decision of the Ministry of Science & Education of Ukraine (15.01.2003 № 7-05/1), only the papers that contain the following structural elements can be considered for publication:

  • General statement of the problem, connection with relevant and practical tasks.
  • Analysis of recent studies and publications according to the subject.
  • Formulation of the unsolved aspects of the problem, which are the subject of the article.
  • Formulation of the goals and tasks.
  • Description of the research methods and justification of scientific results.
  • Conclusions deduced from the research, and prospects for further research.

When submitting, a covering letter should be added to the manuscript (if the article is written by some co-authors from different organisations, separate covering letters are needed from all of them), an agreement on transfer of authors’ authorities, the information about the authors (the first, the middle, and the last name, position, scientific degree, affiliation, contact address including e-mail, telephone; the corresponding author is to be indicated separately) as well as an expert opinion (for Ukrainian citizenship). A non-compliance with the journal requirements for manuscript preparation is a reason of declining the article.
