The articles of the Journal are grouped under ‘floating' rubrics (chosen specially to structure the main themes of each issue), with the following rubrics as basic:
Theory, Methodology and History of Sociological Research
Contemporary Society: The Urgent Issues and Prospects for Development
Surveys, Experiments, Case Studies
Sociology of Organizations
Sociology of Management
The titles of the rubrics are generally broadly formulated so that, despite the obvious theoretical focus of most articles (this is the principal distinguishing feature of the Series forming the image of the scientific journal), in each section we can publish articles differing substantially in their area of study and subject matter, conceptual focus, methodological tools of empirical research, the country of origin and disciplinary affiliation.
On the pages of the journal one can find papers concerning the current status and development trends in the higher education system in the macro-institutional context of different countries; or see publications on the historiography of the classical and modern periods of the world social thought; or read essays on the results of fundamental and applied research work and articles devoted to the problems considered by special sociological theories; or find translations of the works written by well-known scientists that are significant for sociological discourse; or read articles reflecting the difficulties in choosing a methodology and methods for the study of complex social phenomena, etc.
We publish articles of the authors representing the leading sociological centers, institutes, organizations, and universities in Russia and abroad. The broad thematic ‘repertoire' of the Journal presents the opportunities for the authors from many disciplinary fields (political scientists, historians, economists, etc.) relying on the empirical sociological data in their research.
The target audience of the Journal consists of researchers who study various sociological problems at the theoretical and empirical levels, lecturers in sociology and other social sciences and humanities, graduate and postgraduate students. The Journal can be useful for the experts of sociological, information and analytical departments of the government, political and public organizations, and commercial structures.
The main requirement to the published articles is their compliance in content and style with all the requirements set to highly professional scientific sociological publications, and for the rubric “Sociological Lectures”, additionally, an “explaining” manner of writing with some elements of epistolary imagery. Articles are accepted for publication only if they meet the requirements for manuscripts (see: Author Guidelines), successfully go through the peer-review process (see: Peer Review Process), comply with the international standards of publication ethics (see: Publishing Ethics), and meet the requirements for the references list (see: Reference list preparation guidelines).
RUDN Journal of Sociology publishes articles in both Russian and English, which reflects the key orientation of the Editorial Board at strong international cooperation, promotion and further strengthening of the positions and achievements of sociological knowledge.
