An analysis of the state of affairs in the field of operation of hydraulic reclamation systems in the arid zone of the country over the past 15-20 years has revealed a number of circumstances and factors that have led to negative phenomena in this area and its lag. Sustainable water use is achieved by optimally meeting the needs of sectors of the economy and the population with water. An effective justification for the use of the water resource potential of river basins is based on system-wide environmental and economic criteria. Solving this difficult task involves multifaceted risks: natural and anthropogenic factors, continuous and unjustified increase in water consumption, and pollution of water sources. A statistical survey of existing hydraulic reclamation systems showed that the length of channels of inter-farm and intra-farm networks with a flow rate from 10 m3/s to 20 m3/s is 98.5% of the total length of channels, and the length of channels in the earth bed is 84.9%, with 65.5% of the cost of canal work from the total cost of construction of hydraulic reclamation systems. For most of the hydro-reclamation systems in Kazakhstan, water intake is made from mountain and foothill rivers transporting a significant amount of sediment, which leads to the development of channel deformations and a decrease in channel capacity. Over the past 20 years, during the operation of hydraulic structures, many have lost their design reliability and pose a real environmental and social threat. Restoration of the hydro–reclamation component of the potential of the agro-industrial complex of the Republic of Kazakhstan is directly related to the need for reconstruction, modernization and construction of hydraulic structures – the main element of the irrigation network. The purpose of the project is the scientific substantiation and development of effective integrated technological solutions for cleaning, reconstruction and modernization of channels of hydraulic reclamation systems. Project objectives: 1. Investigation of the influence of operational factors on the nanotransportability of earthen channel beds. 2. Systematization of design features and statistical parameters of irrigation canals in the south of the Republic of Kazakhstan and their impact on the conditions for the selection of machines and mechanisms. 3. Study of the stability of slopes of irrigation channels of a parabolic profile. 4. Development of methodological techniques for the formation of the most advantageous channel cross-section profile. 5. Development of constructive and technological solutions to ensure the operational reliability of the channels of hydraulic reclamation systems. Expected results of the project: 1. Optimal measures will be developed and proposed to ensure the design performance of irrigation canals. 2. Criteria for the effective operation of channels with increased nanotransportation capacity will be determined. 3. The main parameters and indicators of the most advantageous channel section will be formulated. 4. Engineering and technical recommendations will be developed to improve the operational characteristics of the existing channels of the hydraulic reclamation system. 5. At least 2 (two) will be published articles in journals from the first three quartiles by impact factor in the Web of Science database or having a percentile by Cite Score in the Scopus database of at least 50. 6. At least 4 (four) will be published articles or reviews in a peer-reviewed foreign or domestic publication recommended by the Committee for Quality Assurance in Education and Science of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan. 7. 2 (two) copyright certificates for the utility model will be received. 8. 1 (one) monograph and 1 (one) textbook will be prepared and published.

IMRAD Structure: Key elements of a scientific article 

In the world of scientific research, there is a widely recognized structure known by the acronym IMRAD. This acronym represents the main sections of a scientific article: Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion. The IMRAD framework is a fundamental tool for the organization and communication of scientific research, and its effective use contributes to the understanding and evaluation of scientific information. Let’s take a closer look at each of these sections: 

In this section, the authors of the article present the research topic and describe its relevance and significance. The purpose of the introduction is to substantiate the need for research and formulate its purpose and hypothesis. It also usually includes a brief review of the literature, which allows readers to understand the context of the study and its connection with previous works. 

The Methods section provides a detailed description of the methodology and procedures used in conducting the study. This includes information about sample selection, data collection methods, tools and materials used, and data analysis methods. The purpose of this section is to provide sufficient information so that other researchers can reproduce your study or verify its methodology. 

The results section presents the most important data obtained as a result of the study. This section usually includes numerical data, graphs, tables, and other graphical representations of research results. It is important to present the results in such a way that they are clear and easy to interpret for readers. 

The last section of the article discusses and interprets the results obtained. The authors analyze their data, compare them with the results of previous studies and discuss their significance and impact on the subject area. It also usually highlights the limitations of the study and formulates suggestions for further research. 

The IMRAD structure provides a logical and consistent presentation of scientific information, which facilitates the understanding and evaluation of research work. It is a standard widely accepted in the scientific community that helps researchers communicate their results effectively and move science forward. 

You can also familiarize yourself with the template for the design of articles presented for the scientific publication “Bulletin of KAZGAS”, a scientific, technical and scientific-methodical publication for architects, designers, engineers, designers, technologists, art historians. Initially, the magazine was published under the name “Bulletin of the Kazakh State Academy of Architecture and Construction”. In 2001, the name of the magazine was renamed to “Bulletin of the Kazakh head Architectural and Construction Academy”.

Choosing a scientific publication to publish an article is an important stage for a researcher. It should be based on a number of factors, including the purpose of the study, the audience, the impact factor and the quartile rank of the publication. Here are some recommendations for choosing a publication based on these factors: 

Research Objective: Think about the goals of your research. If your goal is to get widespread distribution and attention to your work, then choose a publication with a high impact factor. If your goal is to reach a specific audience, choose the publication that best suits your topic and the interests of the audience. 
Impact factor: The impact factor of a publication is an indicator of its influence in the scientific community. A high impact factor usually indicates that the publication publishes high-quality papers that are often cited by other researchers. However, keep in mind that not all publications with a high impact factor are suitable for all types of research, and not all publications with a low impact factor are bad. 
Quartile rank: The quartile rank reflects the positioning of the publication in its scientific field. Publications can be divided into quartiles (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4) depending on how they relate to other publications in their field. It is usually advisable to choose publications from the upper quartiles, as they have a higher level of reputation and influence in the scientific community. 
Reputation and audience: Consider the reputation of the publication in your scientific field and the relevance of its audience to your research goals. Some publications specialize in certain areas of knowledge or research approaches, so it is important to choose the publication that is most suitable for your work. 
Open Access: Consider publishing in the public domain, which can increase the accessibility and visibility of your work. Some publications provide this opportunity, but additional payment may be required for this. 
Timing and cost: Take into account the timing of publication and the cost of publication in the selected publication. Some publications may have longer review and publication periods, as well as require additional payments for publication.
So, when choosing a scientific publication to publish an article, it is important to take into account the purpose of the research, the reputation of the publication, its audience, impact factor and quartile rank, as well as other practical considerations such as accessibility and cost of publication. 

Below are links to tools from international citation databases for choosing a scientific publication. 

Journal Finder 

A tool from Elsevier for selecting a publication for publishing your article through an annotation. 

Master Journal List 

Clarivate (Web of Science) tool for searching and selecting a publication for publication 

You can also use the tool developed on the basis of the Narxoz MK Predator test University. A test to assess the quality of a scientific journal in order to avoid publications in potentially predatory publications. 

The MK predator test allows you to determine the probability of a scientific journal being included in the list of “predatory” publications based on an assessment of the journal’s website and data from open sources. 

It should be noted that indexing in scientific databases and a high percentile is not a guarantee that the journal follows the ethics of scientific publications. Therefore, it is better to make a preliminary assessment using this tool. Keep in mind that the result will depend on the reliability of your answers to the test questions.
