Recommendations for the preparation of abstracts to scientific articles.
In Russia, the functions of the national centre for AGRIS, since 2007, is the Federal state budgetary scientific institution «Central scientific agricultural library».
From 1 July 1997 operates inter-state standard GOST 7.9-95 «Summary and abstract. General requirements», which should be guided in the preparation of the abstract. However, this document contains only General provisions, not taking into account the specifics of research in the field of agriculture. Requirements to the abstract, from the team of technical support AGRIS, was formulated in the «software user Guide WEBAGRIS» with which the record is ready for publication, but they are mainly addressed formal moments
After analyzing certain provisions of the GOST 7.9-95 «Summary and abstract. General requirements», staff cnshb recommendations, how best to apply them when writing abstracts to scientific articles agricultural subjects taking into account the specifics of the international base.
GOST 7.9-95 «Summary and abstract. General requirements» provides definitions of the relevant concepts.
The abstract is a brief accurate statement of the contents of the document, covering basic facts and conclusions, without additional interpretation or critical remarks of the author of the abstract.
Abstract – brief description of the document from the point of view of its purpose, content, form, shape, and other features.

— subject, topic, aim of work;
method or methodology of work;
— results of work;
— the scope of the results;
— for more information.
These subsections should only be allocated logically, without subheadings. The level of detail of presentation of certain sections is dictated by the specifics of the text, but in General the preference should be given to the results.
The scope of the results is only required in the patent documents, for articles on agricultural topics is optional.
Method or methodology of work should be described in the case, if they differ novelty or are of interest from the point of view of this work. Widely known methods are only called.
It is desirable to specify the time and place (to the edge region and/or natural areas) studies, the sample volume, short lead circuit experience. The names of smaller administrative units to lead is not necessary. Should provide only the information that is important in the context of the study and may affect its results.
Do not specify secondary information: brand and manufacturer of equipment or reagents, which lab performed the tests, who belonged to the experimental field, etc. the Availability of basic statistical processing of the data is implied and does not need special mention.
Describe your results accurately and informatively. The basic theoretical and experimental results, factual data, discovered relationships and patterns. The preference is given to new results and data of long-term value, important discoveries, conclusions which refute existing theories, and which, in the opinion of the author of the document, have practical value. Specify limits of accuracy and reliability of the data, and also degree of their justification. Specify whether digital values are primary or derivative, outcome of one observation or re-testing.
All the presented results must be confirmed by the figures. Do not say that the value of some indicator of «increased» or «decreased», you need to give the border «from…to…».Should be based on the provisions made by the author in the conclusions, but, if necessary, to complement them the actual digital material.
If the study started recently, but the findings are preliminary, the article is not subject to selection in AGRIS.
Abstract text begin a phrase in which formulated the main theme of the document. The information contained in the title and the bibliographic description should not be repeated in the summary text.

Categorically not allowed to bring information that is publicly known or is not the result of the study (for example, statistics from the introduction).
The volume of text is determined by the document content (amount of information, its scientific value and/or practical value), and also availability and language of a peer-reviewed document. Recommended average volume of abstract of 850 printed characters.
The article is signed by all authors with the indication of postal addresses (if you have one, e-mail) and phone numbers, and also with mark, with whom to correspond.
