The Journal has been created to highlight current problems with emphasis on their sociological interpretation without excluding, however, the interdisciplinary research addressing the theoretical, methodological and applied approaches. We hope to help integrating Russian Science into the global one, providing the peer-reviewed articles in English, in accordance with international standards. The editorial Board invites you to join our Journal to share the results of your researches, your thoughts, your experience, and your data with all the readers. We hope, that esteemed researchers may find possible not only to provide us with their articles, but also would kindly comment on previously published materials. We want to draw your attention to the fact that the first issue of the Journal is dedicated to the research papers of postgraduate students and young scientists, presented in the scientific conference of postgraduates and young scientists In Memoriam of A. Pochinok, held from 13 to 18 March, 2015. It is not a coincidence, that the first issue of the Journal is associated with the memory of Alexander Pochinok, a prominent Russian statesman, who was Minister of Labour and a famous economist. Mr. Pochinok knew to combine his state service with prolific research activities, he also was a great supporter of Russian State Social University and he did a lot for the University development. I hope that establishing this Journal we make one more step to the better image of the University that Mr. Pochinok desired to see so much.

Articles in "Contemporary problems of social work" are indexed by Russian Scientific Citation Index (RSCI) – a database, accumulating information on papers by Russian scientists, published in native and foreign titles. The RSCI project is under development since 2005 by “Electronic Scientific Library” foundation (elibrary.ru).

Peer-Review

double-blind peer review method is mandatory for processing of all scientific manuscripts submitted to the editorial stuff of "Contemporary problems of social work". This implies that neither the reviewer is aware of the authorship of the manuscript, nor the author maintains any contact with the reviewer.

1. Members of the editorial board and leading Russian and international experts in corresponding areas of life sciences, invited as independent readers, perform peer reviews. Editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief or science editor choose readers for peer review. We aim to limit the review process to 2-4 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer’s request.


2. Reviewer has an option to abnegate the assessment should any conflict of interests arise that may affect perception or interpretation of the manuscript. Upon the scrutiny, the reviewer is expected to present the editorial board with one of the following recommendations:
- to accept the paper in its present state;
- to invited the author to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before final decision is reached;
- that final decision be reached following further reviewing by another specialist;
- to reject the manuscript outright.


3. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author either to implement the corrections, or to dispute them reasonably. Authors are kindly required to limit their revision to 2 months and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.


4. We politely request that the editor be notified verbally or in writing should the author decide to refuse from publishing the manuscript. In case the author fails to do so within 3 months since receiving a copy of the initial review, the editorial board takes the manuscript off the register and notifies the author accordingly.


5. If author and reviewers meet insoluble contradictions regarding revision of the manuscript, the editor-in-chief resolves the conflict by his own authority.


6. The editorial board reaches final decision to reject a manuscript on the hearing according to reviewers’ recommendations, and duly notifies the authors of their decision via e-mail. The board does not accept previously rejected manuscripts for re-evaluation.


7. Upon the decision to accept the manuscript for publishing, the editorial staff notifies the authors of the scheduled date of publication.


8. Kindly note that positive review does not guarantee the acceptance, as final decision in all cases lies with the editorial board. By his authority, editor-in-chief rules final solution of every conflict.


9. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 3 years.
