Aims & scope

The online journal Modern Research of Social Problems is a fully peer-reviewed Russian monthly welcoming original articles which advance theoretical understanding and empirical research in all areas of sociology. It aims to promote dialogue and exchange between Russian sociologists and international sociological community. 

All articles submitted to the Journal are anonymously refereed (manuscripts are reviewed by members of the Editorial Board; manuscripts are peer-reviewed by leading specialists in a corresponding field). This ensures the world class quality of the journal and maintains the continuity of sociological debate.

Meanwhile in the present conditions of certain information disparity and insufficient financing of research activities we quite often witness situations when interesting research or findings become known only in a narrow professional circle, and their results appear in departmental publications whose circulation is limited. This is especially true about research done on a regional scale.

Modern Research of Social Problems acts as a link that allows not only keep in pace with most interesting sociology findings, but also discuss them and obtain necessary statistical data on Russia as a whole and on separate Federal Districts, learn about new regional publications as well as about most interesting dissertation thesis, conferences and workshops.

Certainly there is a number of similar Russian periodicals that have comparable goals but they are all published in Central Russia. Modern Research of Social Problems does not limit its interests to the huge territory, but it is nevertheless oriented on giving provincial authors an opportunity to publish the results of their research provided that they are original and really innovative. The Editorial Board is comprised of most authoritative researchers that represent the interests of their regions.

We genuinely hope that Modern Research of Social Problems is only at the beginning of its long and fruitful road and that it will contribute to the development of sociology.
