Author Guidelines

General paper structure

1. Text length should be up to 40 000 characters with spacings and paragraphs

2. Title page must include:
— Author’s full name
— Title of the article
— Current position and academic degree
— Address, e-mail, and phone number

3. Following page must contain abstract where the author presents the main ideas of the article (length of the abstract should be approximately 1000 characters) and 8-12 keywords in both Russian and English

4. Citations and references must be placed at the end of the document, after the main text

Text Formatting Requirements

— Author and title. Surname and initials must be placed upon the title, justified by right, in italic

— Main text should follow the title in two paragraph spacings

— To emphasize a word or a phrase, use italic letters. If the selected text is a part of a quote, comment in brackets (emphasis added — A.A.)

Citation and references

— Explanatory remarks and references must be placed in the endnote

— Direct quotations. Citations of moderate length (up to 5 lines) should be set off in double angle quotation mark: «I’ll pay your price.» Use single quotation marks for quotations within quotations: «‘Agreed.’ She raised her hand, the fire died».

— Block quotations. If the length of a quote is above 5 lines, the quote should be separated from the main text with an extra paragraph spacing added before and after the main text. Also, both left and right indents should be decreased by 1 sm. Spacing between lines needs to be changed to 12 pt. Quotation marks are unnecessary; however, internal citations still require a double angle quotation mark.

— To mark omissions within a quotation, use ellipsis inside of single angle quotes (left and right): <…>

— Mentioned source or placed quotation should be followed by author’s name, year of publishing, and page number inside of square brackets: [Лупанова 1969, 47]; [Зингерман 1926, 51].

— In a case of multiple quotations from the one source, it is advised to add a note to its first reference in the text, informing that for this source, page numbers will be set off in the main text inside square brackets after the quotation.

Short citations from poems (3 lines or less) are cited in-text with breaks marked with a slash «/» at the end of each verse line. Long quotations (4 lines and more) are inserted as block quotations in which the author’s line breaks maintain, and formatting is close to the original’s.

— Citation and references should be placed in the endnote: «Note» section is intended for explanatory remarks, «Studies» and «Sources» are for bibliographical references, which are expected to be divided between the two groups depending on the type of material. References should be arranged in alphabetical order.

— If two or more papers of one author published the same year are cited, references should be arranged in alphabetical order

— Notes should be formatted in common style with a link to reference list in the endnote (publisher and page number are necessary to mention)

— For links to web pages, the access date should be specified

— The bibliographic description in the articles must comply with the requirements of GOST 7.0.5-2008 and must contain the name of the publisher, the names of editors, compilers (for collections, conference materials, reference books), the name of the scientific organization (for dissertations and thesis abstracts).

— Sources of citations and references to sources should be given with a reference to the bibliography at the end of the text of the article and in square brackets, for example: * See. also: [Иванов 2013; Абызов 1994].
