The Editorial Board welcomes a wide range of articles, including scholarly and critical papers, analytical studies, and reviews.
Procedures of review of the articles submitted to the journal
All materials undergo peer review by members of the Editorial Board and invited experts. The journal uses double blind review. The term of the review should not exceed 100 days.
The basic criteria for publication are scholarly novelty, current subject matter, and adherence to high international academic standards.
The Editorial Board informs the authors of the results of peer review. A copy of the review will be sent to the author upon his/her request, if the paper is rejected for publication.
After a positive review is submitted by reviewers, the editor informs the authors about the acceptance of the article indicating the issue date of the article.
The reviews are archived by the editorial board during five years after the review was submitted, and may be provided upon request to the corresponding expert council of the Higher Attestation Commission of the Russian Federation.
Each issue of the journal has a theme that should be addressed by all texts accepted for publication in the given issue. The theme of the current issue, as well as of the upcoming one, are posted on the main page of the journal website.
Upon acceptance, the author will be required to sign a contract for publication.
Once the contract is signed, no part of the article or other materials may be published elsewhere in any form or by any means, without prior permission of the publisher. The author is responsible for the accuracy of all information, including facts, citations, historical and sociological data, names, and place names used in the text.
