Address of the editor-in-chief:


Dear authors!

The editorial board began to receive articles previously published in other languages in whole or in large part. The editorial board accepts only original articles, not translated versions of them. Subsequent articles by authors who practice replicating their articles in this way will not be considered by the editorial board!

Editor-in-Chief, Doctor of Sciences (History), Prof. Igor O. Tyumentsev

3 issues of the magazine per year are thematic, 3 are non–thematic.

New articles are sent for review every 15th day of a month. The review period takes 3–4 months. Articles submitted after June 1 are sent for review after September 1.

When choosing articles for their publication under the heading "Reviews", reviews of foreign scientific literature (preferably not older than 3 years from the date of its publication) have the advantage over ones of books in Russian.

It took effect from the 1st December of 2015.
