Frequently asked questions

Question:
Dear, sirs! Is “SFU’s Journal” included into the list of the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles?
Answer:
“Journal of the Siberian Federal University” is a general title and it covers 5 independent series (“Humanitarian Sciences”, “Mathematics and Physics”, “Biology”, “Chemistry”, “Machines and Technology”). The series “Humanitarian Sciences” (economics; history; philosophy, sociology and cultural studies) and “Mathematics and Physics” (physics) have been included into “The List…” of the State Commission since April, 2008. The documents for acceptation into the new list are under consideration of the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles.
Question:
How much does it cost to publish an article in the Journal?
Answer:
For the present time, publication in “SFU’s Journal” is free of charge for all the authors.
Question:
Why is the series “Humanitarian Sciences” published only in English?
Answer:
The main target of the editors of “SFU’s Journal” is to develop and to bring the Journal to the international level. Today, we are to provide the materials of scientific researchers in English in order the Journal can be included into the largest search systems (the only exception can be done for the Russian Philology).
Question:
Why is to send an article to the Journal possible only via the system of electronic posting?
Answer:
The system of electronic posting allows rather quickly (in the course of a week upon the compliance with all the requirements) solving the questions of article reviewing and acceptation into a certain issue. Site registration gives all the necessary information about its author and also affords a possibility to form a separate group of reviewers being responsible for each direction.
Question:
I would like to send my article in to the Journal. When will it be published?
Answer:
The date of publication depends on the theme of your article. Issues of the Humanitarian series are formed approximately 3-4 months before their publishing. Other series are formed 1.5-2 months beforehand. It is difficult to settle an exact date of publication, as far as everything depends on the activity of reviewers and authors (the more there are articles, the farther is the date of their issue).
