About


Siberian Journal of Social Sciences (Krasnoyarsk Science) is a social and scientific-and-practical peer reviewed journal designed to promote both fundamental and applied regional achievements in the field of economics, foreign economic activity, politics, international cooperation and law on the territory of the Russian Federation and abroad.

The journal is published by the Science and Innovation Center Publishing House (Krasnoyarsk, Russia) since 2011 and administered by the EE "Higher School of Social Attitudes".

Siberian Journal of Social Sciences is published 4 times per year (since 2017) and distributed in Russia, CIS countries, and abroad.

The edition is registered (certificate of registry PE № TU 24-00430) by the Federal Service of Intercommunication and Mass Media Control and by the International center ISSN (ISSN 2070-7568).

In order to organize a quality scientific review of the submitted articles, the priority interests of the journal include manuscripts on three fields of science (Economics, Politics, Law). For the purposes of publication, the editorial board of the journal selects reviews, analytical articles and original research papers as well as brief reports and professional reviews on most significant achievements in the field of economics, politics and law.

A wide range of problems appearing on the pages of the journal is determined by its social and scientific-and-practical orientations.

At the end of 2016, Siberian Journal of Social Sciences was modified to meet the recommendations made by the international experts. Since that time, the journal has been updated, which affected not only its design, but also the editorial board and reviewing staff, editorial policies, topics and principles for the selection of published articles. The members of the editorial board are acknowledged Russian and foreign scientists, who actively participate in the formation of the international profile of the journal.

At present, we are actively engaging foreign colleagues in collaboration and are aimed at renewing the editorial staff on a regular basis. To ensure the quality of the published papers, the journal has established strict ethical requirements for manuscripts that conform to the standards of the respected international associations. In addition, aggressive peer reviewing (i.e. double-blind peer review method) of all submitted manuscripts has been introduced. The articles accepted for publication go through a full cycle of editorial processing and proofreading.

All publications are reviewed and accompanied by an extensive resume in Russian and English. The editorial board of the journal accepts the texts by both Russian and foreign authors in either the Russian or English languages.

The journal has an international and interdisciplinary nature.

Special emphasis is made on various aspects of international cooperation in the field of economic theory, economics, management and law.

Unlike other periodical scientific periodicals published by academic institutions and organizations, the journal focuses primarily on regional topical issues, considered in a wide range from pilot innovative research activities to large-scale implementation of scientific research results into practice.

Objectives:

  • to form new views based on modern scientific approaches and academic polemic;

  • to inform the professional community of new relevant publications and research projects;
  • to establish and enhance scientific relations between Russian and foreign scientists;
  • to encourage young researchers to become a part of the professional community.

Relevance, interest to the public, novelty of the proposed ideas and scientific certainty of the materials presented are the criteria that the submitted manuscripts have to meet to be published. The mission of the editorial board is to provide opportunities for a well-posed and well-founded discussion of the most topical issues that would include presentation of different types of discourse as well as different research approaches. The decision to accept the article for publication is made by the editorial board taking into consideration the opinions of leading scientists, being reviewers and experts, who assess the article according to the above-mentioned criteria.

Readers

The authors of the journal are major scholars, analysts, researchers, state and regional government employees, internationally recognized leading scientists. The journal also provides an opportunity for postgraduate students and young scientists to have their papers published. Such articles are also published provided they conform to the above-mentioned criteria and editorial policies. The journal allows the authors to have the results of their scientific research published, and thereby it contributes to the formation of research teams united around the study of specific issues.

Open Access Policy

The importance of the problems modern society is facing has been consistently discussed not only in the academic discourse. Therefore, in addition to the academic audience, the journal is also aimed at non-academic readers interested in discussing the fundamental problems of modern society and social sciences. As the journal is working for becoming a platform for full-scale discussion of these problems, it follows the policy of open access to its publications. Since 2016, all contents of the journal are available free of charge to its users on the journal's official website upon publishing the issue. The users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search and find full texts of the published articles without the prior permission of the publisher or the publication’s author.

Publication Format

Both the full-scale discussion of problems and open access policy suggest that the journal is ready to publish not only original scientific articles in Russian and English on the results of fundamental and applied-theoretic research in the field of Economics, Politics, Law and related sciences, but also review papers made by leading specialists in the fields of knowledge related to the profile of the journal as well as professional reviews of new books and scientific research, materials of scientific events, discussions and round tables devoted to the issues covered by the journal.

Sections

The journal publishes scientific papers of different formats (types) solely in accordance with its academic profile.

The problems under consideration are diverse and complex, though, a specialised scientific journal has not been published in Russia yet. The present journal is to fill in this gap. The thematic focus of this journal makes it a unique Russian language publication in this field.
