If the list contains more than 4 names, it is required to specify contribution of each author to the paper: the proportion of 100% and the types of work performed by each co-author (it is not published in the journal, it is necessary to evaluate the actual role of each co-author and protection from unreasonable attribution of authorship). The names are arranged in order of decreasing the contribution of the co-authors.
