1. Length of submissions

Illustrations for the articles, such as maps, charts, and graphs, must be forwarded to the Editorial Team as separate. JPG,. JPEG or. TIFF files; titles for the illustrations should be attached.

If a publication includes special characters, a version of the file in. PDF format must be attached.

2. General principles

1. While some Latin abbreviations are permitted: i.e. (that is), etc. (etcetera), e.g. (for example), they should be used primarily within parentheses. Outside of parentheses, they should be spelled out and should appear in the language of the submission. for example, and others, that is.
2. In English-language submissions, avoid using ibid. and op.cit.; follow the conventions for in-text citations.
3. Both A.D. / B.C., and CE=of the Common Era / BCE = before the Common Era, may be used with dates; A.H. = anno Hegirae may also be used where appropriate
4. An en-dash not a hyphen! is used to represent a span or range of numbers, dates, or time. There should be no space between the en-dash and the adjacent material. If decades are identified by their century, numerals are used:

the 1960s and the 1990s.

No apostrophe is used between the numeral and the s.

3. Citing scholarly/scientific literature

The journal requires in-text citation of scholarly/scientific literature, using the Author-Date system: [Youngblood 2007: 51; Kosterina 1962: 40; 2014: 91]. Within the body of the submission, Russian names and names in other languages using Cyrillic are given in transliteration, based on the simplified Library of Congress system; however, in some case, well-known personal names may be given in their commonly accepted English form. Thus,

As Lev Trotsky proposed, In Dostoevskys novel The Idiot

Two lists, Literature and References accompany the body of the article. If the paper doesnt cite literature in languages using Cyrillic, the Literature section is not necessary. The information in each list is the same, but the entries are organized in accordance with different sets of rules.

3.1 The Literature section

Entries in the original Russian and other languages employing Cyrillic, as well as entries from other languages transliterated into Cyrillic, precede entries in Latin-based languages. Within each of these two groups, entries are alphabetized.

a) for monographs: author(s) italicized; title; editor, translator, etc; place of publication, publisher, year of publication.

c) for articles in journals and other serial publications: author(s) italicized; title; complete title of journal or other serial; year of publication; number / issue; pages. In those cases where a journal is numbered continuously, the volume/issue are listed prior to the year of publication.

3.2. The References section

The References list adheres to the style developed by the American Psychological Association (APA).
All entries in this section must be in Latin script; in the case of languages employing scripts other than Latin, transliteration must be used. Literature in Russian and other Cyrillic-based languages is transliterated in accordance with the simplified Library of Congress system (without diacritics). See the example of the automatic transliteration via http://www.convertcyrillic.com/#/:

All entries are arranged in a single file in alphabetical order of English.
In transliterated entries, each key element (title of article or monograph, title of journal or edited volume) is followed by a translation into English, enclosed in square brackets. Where an English-language version of the title of a journal or other type publication in Russian or another language already exists, that version must be used.
For all entries other than those published in English, the language of publication is indicated at the end of the entry.

a) monograph: Author(s) (Last name, Initials) Year of publication (in parentheses). Title of work italicized; first word of title and first word of subtitle, if present, capitalized, as well as any proper nouns. Place of publication: Publisher.
