File Format

Please submit texts in MS Word 97/2000/XP (DOC) or, preferably, Rich Text Format (RTF) format. If the document contains non-standard fonts, please embed them into the document.

Manuscript formating

Font should be Times New Roman 12 with 1.5-line spacing. The text should be left-aligned and hyphenation should be turned off; it should not contain headers or footers and page numbering; page numbers should only be marked by hand on the printed copy.

The text may be divided into sections with headings and subheadings, which should not be numbered. Three levels of headings are possible and they should be written as follows: MAIN HEADING in capitals, first subheading in bold, second subheading in non-bold italics.

Hyphens should not be confused with dashes. Hyphens without spaces should be used in compounds, en-dashes (–) without spaces should be used, for example, when citing pages (e.g., 5–8) and em-dashes (―) should be used with inserted sentences or phrases.

The first line of a paragraph should not be indented.

Short quotations in the text should appear within quotation marks. Quotations of more than 5 typed lines should be offset in a new paragraph, left-aligned and written in a smaller font (Times New Roman 10); in this case, quotation marks are not necessary. Omissions from quotations should be marked with three dots between square brackets: […]. Sources should be cited in parentheses ( ) at the end of a quotation.

Titles of the books and journals mentioned in the text should appear in italics.

In the main text, footnotes should appear below a line. They may only refer to content and should not contain bibliographical references. They should be consecutively numbered in Arabic numerals. Footnote numbers in the text should appear without spacing after the word to which it refers, or after the punctuation mark following that word.

Following the title of the article and the name of the author, a list of up to 10 keywords and a short synopsis (maximum 800 characters) must be added both in English and in the language in which the article is written. If the article is written in English, Russian should be used as the second language.

The list of references should appear at the end of the main text. There follow in order:

  • an article summary in English (maximum 3,600 characters),
  • brief biographical/bibliographical information about the author (maximum 600 characters) and a full institutional address.

The reference list should comprise those works mentioned in the text and those that were used as source material. The reference list and bibliographic information on sources of quotations and references used in the text should be written according to adapted MLA standards.
References to sources and pages in the text should appear in parentheses. Generally, you want to provide the last name of the author and the specific page numbers of the source. If such information is already given in the body of the sentence, then exclude it from the parenthetical citation.

Example with author's name in text: Johnson argues this point (12-13) ...

Example without author's name in text: This point had already been argued (Johnson 12-13) ...

Place the parenthetical citation where there is a pause in the sentence – normally before the end of a sentence or a comma.

In the reference list (bibliography), references should appear as follows:
