The jour­nal pub­lish­es mate­ri­als that have not been pre­vi­ous­ly pub­lished and are not intend­ed for simul­ta­ne­ous pub­li­ca­tion else­where.

By sub­mit­ting an arti­cle, the author war­rants that the mate­r­i­al is orig­i­nal and that this mate­r­i­al will not be sub­mit­ted for pub­li­ca­tion to oth­er sci­en­tif­ic jour­nals (to third par­ties).

Arti­cles should be sent to the edi­to­r­i­al office

by e-mail:

Pub­li­ca­tion lan­guages: Russ­ian and Eng­lish.

Man­u­scripts sub­mit­ted for con­sid­er­a­tion to the edi­to­r­i­al office should be pre­pared in accor­dance with the man­u­script prepa­ra­tion uide­lines. Arti­cles that do not fol­low the require­ments of the guide­lines will not be accept­ed or reviewed.

The author is respon­si­ble for the accu­ra­cy of cita­tion, bib­li­og­ra­phy, tran­scrip­tion of names and titles. If the man­u­script meets the required cri­te­ria, it will be checked for pla­gia­rized mate­r­i­al. In the case of such mate­r­i­al being dis­cov­ered, and also in the case of the mate­r­i­al being pub­lished pre­vi­ous­ly, the man­u­script will be reject­ed and the author(s) will be informed of the deci­sion.

If the man­u­script meets all of the above cri­te­ria it will be for­ward­ed to two review­ers with­in two weeks of sub­mis­sion.

The edi­to­r­i­al office orga­nizes the review­ing process (blind peer review). All review­ers are acknowl­edged experts on the sub­ject of the reviewed mate­ri­als.

The review process takes up to 2 months, and for arti­cles in a for­eign lan­guage – up to 3 months.

When review­ing, the focus will be on the fol­low­ing issues:

  • Rel­e­vance of the arti­cle and the lev­el of its research nov­el­ty
  • The use of schol­ar­ly sources on the sub­ject and the cor­rect­ness of cit­ing ref­er­ences
  • The use of mod­ern meth­ods of research by the author
  • Cor­rect­ness of dis­cus­sion of research issues
  • The degree of the article’s readi­ness for pub­li­ca­tion in terms of lan­guage and style

The jour­nal does not charge authors for pub­li­ca­tion of their mate­ri­als. No fees are paid to authors.

The edi­to­r­i­al office will not engage in a dis­cus­sion of the mer­its and short­com­ings of arti­cles and oth­er cor­re­spon­dence con­cern­ing the sub­mit­ted mate­ri­als (both accept­ed and not accept­ed for pub­li­ca­tion).

In the case of a neg­a­tive review, the edi­to­r­i­al office may sug­gest the author to improve the arti­cle accord­ing to remarks of review­ers. Mod­i­fied ver­sion is sub­ject for sec­ondary review­ing.

Sub­mit­ted mate­ri­als are trans­ferred to the edi­to­r­i­al archive and will not be returned to the author. The orig­i­nals of the reviews are kept at the edi­to­r­i­al office of the jour­nal for five years.

Upon accep­tance of the man­u­script, a stan­dard agree­ment is signed between the author and the jour­nal.

Pre­pare your paper for sub­mis­sion

An article’s rec­om­mend­ed size is from 4000 to 7000 words. Book and oth­er the­mat­ic reviews are invit­ed. The stan­dard size of a review is about 3000–5000 words.

Mar­gins Left/Right and Top/Bottom 2 cm. A 14-point Times Roman font, 1.5 line spac­ing. First line indent 1.25 cm. Align­ment jus­ti­fied. Do not include auto­mat­ic hyphen­ation and page num­bers in your sub­mis­sion.

One sub­mis­sion should con­sist of two files

One file should con­tain the author infor­ma­tion, title, abstract and key words.

Anoth­er file must con­tain the title and the text. It must be devoid of per­son­al data and pre­pared for the blind peer review.

! Since all the man­u­scripts sub­mit­ted to the jour­nal are sub­ject to dou­ble-blind peer review, the iden­ti­ties of both review­ers and authors are con­cealed from each oth­er through­out the review. To facil­i­tate this, authors must ensure that their man­u­scripts are pre­pared in such a way that they do not reveal their iden­ti­ties to review­ers, either direct­ly or indi­rect­ly.

Please remove any iden­ti­fy­ing infor­ma­tion, such as authors’ names or affil­i­a­tions, from your man­u­script before sub­mis­sion.

Use the third per­son to refer to work the authors have pre­vi­ous­ly pub­lished. For exam­ple, write ‘Black and Hart (2015) have demon­strat­ed’ rather than ‘we/the authors have pre­vi­ous­ly demon­strat­ed (Black & Hart, 2015)’.

Fur­ther Guide­lines

The author infor­ma­tion must include Name, Last Name, the author’s aca­d­e­m­ic degree (if any) and insti­tu­tion­al affil­i­a­tion (with full mail­ing address: institution/place of work, address, city, ZIP/postal code, coun­try), the author’s e-mail.


Con­cise and infor­ma­tive.

Some tips on titles:

  • Be as descrip­tive as pos­si­ble and use spe­cif­ic rather than gen­er­al terms
  • Use sim­ple word order and com­mon word com­bi­na­tions
  • Avoid using abbre­vi­a­tions; they could have dif­fer­ent mean­ings in dif­fer­ent fields
  • Write sci­en­tif­ic names in full


The abstract should reveal the cru­cial infor­ma­tion about the arti­cle which would allow the read­er to under­stand the sub­field in which the author’s research is car­ried out, the main objec­tives of the research (the prob­lem addressed, the rel­e­vance of this prob­lem for the sub­field, the con­tri­bu­tion pro­posed by the author), the pro­posed solu­tion, the pro­posed method of reach­ing the solu­tion, the order in which the pre­sent­ed argu­ment devel­ops.

The sug­gest­ed length of the abstract is between 200–300 words. Abstracts should not exceed 350 words.

Some tips on writ­ing abstracts:

  • As in the title, use sim­ple word order and com­mon word com­bi­na­tions
  • Min­i­mize the use of abbre­vi­a­tions
  • Avoid cit­ing ref­er­ences

The list of key words (up to 10) should reflect the core infor­ma­tion rel­e­vant for the con­tent of the arti­cle.

Please, use notes on the page they appear in the text.

Ref­er­ences inside the text. We pre­fer the ref­er­ences to be of the fol­low­ing style: [author’s last name, year: sec­tion or page(s)]. Exam­ples:

[Geach, 1967], [Pross, 2015, p. 28], [Cár­de­nas; Lete­lier; Gutier­rez; Cor­nish-Bow­den; Soto-Andrade, 2010], [Ibid., p. 17], [Cheshire, 2013, web].


The list of ref­er­ences must fol­low the man­u­script.
