    Author Guidelines

    The One Health Journal publishes the results of fundamental research and studies with novelty features on the issues on human and veterinary medicine, applied biology, biotechnology, bioengineering and biosafety. The journal publishes original articles and literature reviews which have not been published before. The manuscripts are sent for confidential reviewing by a leading specialist in the relevant sphere. If a positive review has been received, a scientific editor will obligatorily read the manuscript confidentially. The articles are submitted and publishing in Ukrainian or English, translated in the editorial office free of charge and published in English only; the abstracts are published both in English and Ukrainian. The electronic version of the journal https://vet.gov.ua/vydannya/zhurnal-yedyne-zdorovya/ will contain the full text of the articles in Ukrainian and English.


    Each article has its DOI, which promotes accurate dissemination of the materials in the Internet.


    The following documents should be submitted via e-mail prezyd.o.h.institute@gmail.com

    (for One Health Journal Editorial Board):

    • a cover letter from the organization (pdf);
    • the Copyright Assignment Agreement (pdf), made and signed by each co-author separately, for instance, 4 authors – 4 agreements ( link on authors agreement)
    • Please, be advised that the Copyright Assignment Agreement shall come into force after the article has been accepted for publication. If your article has been rejected by the editorial board, the agreement shall automatically become void. If the author (authors) has (have) signed the agreement, it means that they have read and accepted the conditions of the Agreement;
    • The manuscript in doc, docx (pfd is not accepted) – please, name the file using the surname of the first author of the article in English, for instance, Gerilovych.doc; illustrations; tables.


    The manuscript should contain the following parts:

    • UDC index;
    • title of the article in Ukrainian and English;
    • surnames and initials of all the authors in two languages;
    • name and street address(es), including postal codes, of the institutions(s) where the author(s) works (work) in two languages;
    • e-mail addresses of all the authors, having indicated the author for communication with an asterisk.

    Abstract structure:







    The sentences from the article sections should not be mechanically copied into the abstract, they have to be rephrased. The abstract has to present the key points of submitted manuscript of scientific paper. This is your advertisement, it will be read by multiple readers in different scientific databases– thus it should be lucid, comprehensive and fulfilled by the sense of submitting paper.


    Introduction. The analysis of the current status of the scientific aspect or your research. Each fact should be referenced with several sources from world scientific literature. In addition to the “aim” (do not repeat the manuscript title), the last paragraph of the introduction should contain the formulation of your vision of the final result (hypothesis of the study) of your research and the statement, saying whether this hypothesis(es) have been confirmed.

    Materials and Methods. Three main criteria: replication, methods of laboratory analysis, methods of statistical processing (do not use Student’s criterion and the method of the least significant difference). The content of this section should be sufficient to repeat your investigation completely. Used methods should be adequate to aim and tasks of study. In many experimental works, this section may take a big part of the manuscript’s text. If you work with biological objects, the local ethics committee should approve the program of your investigations. This fact should be indicated in Materials and Methods section of your manuscript.


    Results. The clear and complete description of the main results of your own research.


    Discussion. Comparing your achievements against those of the main research achievements in this field. Here you cannot present any “new” data which have not been specified in the Results section.

    Note! These two sections should obligatorily be separated.


    Conclusions. Were all the hypotheses of this work confirmed in the light of new information, obtained in this work? What are the perspectives of further studies? Do not rephrase Discussion section here.


    Adherence to ethical principles. A mandatory section for articles, placed prior to the list of references.

    • Specify all the sources of financing the work of each participant and the whole team of authors;
    • Specify the information about the conflicts of interests;
    • Specify the information about compliance with standards of working with animals;
    • Specify the information about the studies, which involve the participation of humans as study subjects.

    While referring to grants in the Support section, it is necessary to specify the fund, the name of the grant and/or its number.

    Tables should be titled and numbered. References to tables in the text should correspond to their ordinal numbers. The notes to the tables should be placed directly under them. All the abbreviations should be deciphered.

    The illustrations in full colour or in black and white, in one of the standard formats − .xls; .cdr; .tif; .jpg – should be precise, “vivid”, numbered with ordinal numbers, referenced in the text, the legends should be laconic and clear.


    We ask you to pay particular attention to the list of references. All the references should be present in the Internet. DOI (if available) is a mandatory element of the list of used references.

    Since 2001 the journal forms the lists of references according to the following format:



    This style is based on Harvard style and recommendations of the Council of Biology Editors (CBE), Springer

    Please find the example below:


    Bahadoran Z, Mirmiran P, Kashfi K, Ghasemi A. The Principles of Biomedical Scientific Writing: Citation. Int J Endocrinol Metab. 2020 Apr 27;18(2):e102622. doi: 10.5812/ijem.102622.


    Ma Y, Liu Z, Hao L, Wu J, Qin B, Liang Z, Ma J, Ke H, Yang H, Li Y, Cao J. Oral vaccination using Artemia coated with recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae expressing cyprinid herpesvirus-3 envelope antigen induces protective immunity in common carp (Cyprinus carpio var. Jian) larvae. Res Vet Sci. 2020 Jun;130:184-192. doi: 10.1016/j.rvsc.2020.03.013.


    In the test reference are marked without numeration, if format (name, year).


    It is prohibited to use your “own” translation – the titles of the articles from the periodicals should correspond to the abstracts in English, published in the periodicals with the indication of the language of the initial publication in the translated publication. The names of publishing houses should be transliterated, if the journal is not translated – its title should also be transliterated.


    At least half of used references should be the publications for 5 recent years, your own publications may take not more than 5 % of all the references, you may have maximum several sources of “gray literature” (without DOI indices). It is inadmissible to reference hyperlinks, synopses of theses, monographs, materials of congresses and conferences, and work-related materials (DSTU). You may reference Internet-resources only if the relevant source has DOI. It is preferable to cite the sources, published after 2010 (if it is not regulated by the conditions of the presented work).

    Note! Only one source self-citation is allowed as the exclusion

    After receiving the review, stating the need to readjust the manuscript, the author should obligatorily write an explanatory letter to the reviewer and highlight the places, corrected in the text of the manuscript, with a different colour.

    The articles, published in the journal, become the property of the journal. Separate copies of the articles may be reproduced in the electronic or printed form to be used for educational or training purposes. The introduction of articles into other publications, electronic sources or systematic large-scale dissemination may be performed only on preliminary consent of the editorial office of One Health Journal in the electronic or written form.

    Note! The articles, completed against these rules, shall be returned to their authors without any registration and consideration.
