Author Guidelines

Criteria for publication

The criteria for publication of scientific papers (Articles) in Herald of Kiev Institute of Business and Technology are that they:

  • report original scientific research (the main results and conclusions must not have been published or submitted elsewhere)
  • reach a conclusion of interest to an interdisciplinary readership.

Formatting guide

This guide describes how to prepare contributions for submission.

Format of Articles

The articles should be organized in the sequence: article title; JEL index (for articles on economics); author (s) name and last name, scientific degree, academic title, the position, institution, country (all required in Ukrainian, English; contact phone, e-mail; ORCID or ResearcherID; Google Scholar ID, Web of science ID, Scopus ID, Publons ID, annotation; keywords; the text itself; references; optionally Acknowledgements.

Titles do not exceed two lines in print. This equates to 75 characters (including spaces). Should be in Ukrainian and English.

Articles start with an abstract (1800 symbols in Ukrainian, English), which is separate from the main text and avoids numbers, abbreviations, acronyms or measurements unless essential. It is aimed at readers outside the discipline. This abstract should be structured as follows: 2-3 sentences of basic-level introduction to the field; a brief account of the background and rationale of the work; a statement of the main conclusions (introduced by the phrase 'Here we show' or it's equivalent); and finally, 2-3 sentences putting the main findings into general context so it is clear how the results described in the paper have moved the field forwards.

Author keywords are terms that capture the essence of the topic of a document.

Text should be prepared in Microsoft Word (.docx) and contains about 14000-25000 symbols. Word counts refer to the text of the paper. References, title, author list and acknowledgements do not have to be included in total word counts. The text includes Introduction, Methods and Materials, Results, Discussion and Conclusion.

References are formatted on APA, Harvard, NLM, MLA, Chicago style.

Tables should each be presented portrait (not landscape) orientation. Tables have a short, one-line title in bold text. Tables should be as small as possible.

Acknowledgements should be brief, and should not include thanks to anonymous referees and editors, inessential words, or effusive comments. Acknowledgements can contain grant and contribution numbers.

Payment is made to the Institute’s account. Authors of accepted papers are required to pay a publication fee of $35 to $50 depending on length of the paper. This fee helps to cover part of the publishing costs and also includes costs of language revision for papers by authors whose mother tongue is not English. Staff and students of the Kiev Institute of Business and Technology are published for free. 


Each submitted article is peer-reviewed. Inconsistency in the design of the article with the above requirements may be a reason for refusal to publish. The editorial board, in case of refusal of publication, does not return the manuscript and does not enter into theoretical discussions. The decision to publish is made within one month from the date of registration of the manuscript.
