For Authors

The journal accepts submission to regular and special thematic issues (for the difference between these two types of publications see About).

International and Russian scholars are equally encouraged to submit their materials for publication in special thematic issues. The list of focus areas is also available in section About, and some tentative themes for special issues are announced on Main page. We suggest our authors discuss the genre, topic, and the contents of their prospective contributions with Editorial Team of the journal. Please do not hesitate to contact us at editorial email

Contributions for online publication in special and thematic issues are welcome in various experimental formats and genres from scholars and thinkers from a wide range of disciplinary fields not restricted to psychology. Therefore, the authors are free to determine the formatting style (e.g., APA style, Chicago style, etc.) and the length of their contributions. Our goal is to make our publications accessible to the readers all over the world, therefore we have published papers in parallel translations into Russian, English, German, French, and Portuguese. Determined to pursue the policy publishing multilingual articles, the Editorial Team introduces certain requirements for prospective authors.

All full-length contributions to the journal are invited to be submitted along with a shorter (approximately 10-20% of the length of the original contribution) English (or, possibly, Russian) version of the paper that should be viewed as an “extended abstract” presenting all or most key ideas, arguments and conclusions of the full paper. This shorter version of the paper will be published in English (in case of non-English full-length papers) and Russian, as well as, possibly, in some other languages of international science depending on the availability of volunteer translators (volunteer translators are more than welcome on board!). For the examples of such multilingual please see our special issues, for instance, issue 4, 2011 or issue 1, 2012.

We will be happy to respond to any queries and are open to comments and suggestions, so please feel free to contact us at our editorial email at
