The Dig­i­tal Schol­ar: Philosopher’s Lab is a quar­ter­ly peer-reviewed jour­nal pub­lished by Lobachevsky State Uni­ver­si­ty Press (Nation­al Research Lobachevsky State Uni­ver­si­ty of Nizh­ny Nov­gorod, Rus­sia).


The Dig­i­tal Schol­ar: Philosopher’s Lab is aimed to be an open space of aca­d­e­m­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions between philoso­phers, sci­ence stud­ies schol­ars and researchers from neigh­bor­ing aca­d­e­m­ic fields.

The jour­nal pub­lish­es papers in the areas of phi­los­o­phy and sci­ence stud­ies in the Russ­ian and Eng­lish lan­guages.

The sub-areas include ontol­ogy; epis­te­mol­o­gy; his­to­ry of phi­los­o­phy; his­to­ry, method­ol­o­gy and phi­los­o­phy of sci­ence; log­ics; sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy stud­ies; philo­soph­i­cal cog­ni­tive stud­ies; ethics; aes­thet­ics; phi­los­o­phy of reli­gion; phi­los­o­phy of law; phi­los­o­phy of cul­ture. It wel­comes papers that aim at inves­ti­gat­ing, ana­lyz­ing and inter­pret­ing var­ied issues of sci­ence and edu­ca­tion, cul­ture and soci­ety, includ­ing the chal­lenges of their trans­for­ma­tion influ­enced by new infor­ma­tion and dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies, as well as case stud­ies on researchers’ in labs.


The mis­sion of The Dig­i­tal Schol­ar: Philosopher’s Lab

(1) The title of The Dig­i­tal Schol­ar aims to empha­size the impor­tance of new dig­i­tal and infor­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies in two ways: pub­li­ca­tion of papers on a vari­ety of online aca­d­e­m­ic plat­forms to facil­i­tate their vis­i­bil­i­ty and cita­tion; inves­ti­ga­tion and inter­pre­ta­tion of the role of the new tech­nolo­gies in con­tem­po­rary soci­ety as a cru­cial sub­ject for philo­soph­i­cal stud­ies;

(2) The sub­ti­tle Philosopher’s Lab empha­sizes an exper­i­men­tal nature of con­tem­po­rary philo­soph­i­cal prac­tices aim­ing to inves­ti­gate sci­ence in labs.

An impor­tant objec­tive of The Dig­i­tal Schol­ar: Philosopher’s Lab is also to increase the vis­i­bil­i­ty of the Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy, and Soci­ety stud­ies in the Russ­ian schol­ar­ship as an area still insuf­fi­cient­ly explored and non-insti­tu­tion­al­ized in the Russ­ian research and edu­ca­tion space.

The Dig­i­tal Schol­ar: Philosopher’s Lab pub­lish­es orig­i­nal arti­cles embrac­ing the results of the­o­ret­i­cal and applied research, the pro­ceed­ing of sci­en­tif­ic events, as well as reviews on aca­d­e­m­ic lit­er­a­ture, includ­ing the recent books on relat­ed top­ics.

The main sec­tions of the jour­nal include

  • Edi­to­ri­als

The Jour­nal Edi­to­r­i­al Coun­cil and Edi­to­r­i­al Board aim to cre­ate a jour­nal that meets inter­na­tion­al stan­dards, pro­vides sci­en­tif­ic com­mu­ni­ty with high-qual­i­ty infor­ma­tion in the field of phi­los­o­phy and sci­ence stud­ies, and to include the Jour­nal in the glob­al infor­ma­tion resources.


The objec­tives of the Jour­nal are:

  • enhance stud­ies and the vis­i­bil­i­ty of their results in the field of phi­los­o­phy and his­to­ry of sci­ence;
  • facil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tion of sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge both to research com­mu­ni­ties and wider pub­lic;
  • pub­lish papers in sci­ence stud­ies; stud­ies in dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies, ICT, and socio-human­i­tar­i­an tech­nolo­gies; stud­ies in the today’s trans­for­ma­tions of soci­ety, sci­ence, cul­ture, high­er edu­ca­tion and knowl­edge under the influ­ence of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies and ICT;
  • empha­size var­i­ous issues of the Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy, and Soci­ety Stud­ies (STS);
  • the­o­ret­i­cal­ly and empir­i­cal­ly study the issues of open sci­ence, the qual­i­ty and effec­tive­ness of sci­en­tif­ic research and exper­tise.

The Jour­nal is avail­able in print (by sub­scrip­tion) and online ver­sion (open access).

The Jour­nal charges no pub­li­ca­tion fees.
