Summary - one of the types of abbreviated form of presentation of scientific text. The purpose of the resume is to attract the attention of the reader, to arouse the readers' interest by minimal language means: communicating the essence of the research and its novelty. Both should be indicated in the summary, not implied. All scientific articles in the journal must have author's summaries.

Summary - a special genre of scientific presentation of the text, determining the structure of its content. The contrast of a resume from an article implies a difference in the form of a presentation. If the article should contain the logic of reasoning and proof of a certain thesis, then in the summary - the statement of the results of analysis and proof. Thus, the wording in the body of the summary should be generalized, but informative, i.e. are constructed according to predicates ("what is said"), and not according to thematic concepts ("about what is said").

There are requirements for the volume of the resume and the structure of the content. For articles published in the journal "Bulletin of the Dagestan State Medical Academy", the optimal volume of the author's resume in Russian and English is 500-900 characters with spaces.

In the world, it is common practice to reflect in the author's resume a summary of the article. Sometimes the abstract retains the structure of the article - introduction, goals and objectives, research methods, results, conclusions (conclusions).

Low-quality author's resumes in the articles repeat the content of the title of the article, are saturated with general words, do not state the essence of the research, are unacceptably short.

Summary is always accompanied by keywords. A keyword is a word in the text that, in combination with other keywords, can represent a text. Keywords are used mainly for searching. The set of publication keywords (the search image of the article) is close to the summary. The texts of the author's resume with key words should be presented in Russian and English.

The qualitative author's resume in English allows:

• familiarize the foreign scientist with the content of the article and determine the interest to it, regardless of the language of the article and the availability of the opportunity to read its full text;

• to overcome the language barrier to a scientist who does not know the Russian language;

• increase the likelihood of citing the article by foreign colleagues.

Author's summary in Russian is compiled for scientists who read in Russian. Qualitative author's resumes are a necessity in conditions of an information supersaturated environment.
