We are happy to announce the publication of the first issue of the journal
"Journal of Philology: Ural-Altaic Studies." The journal is reviewed by
State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles (PhD and doctoral
dissertations in philology).
You can download it here:
Russian Page: http://altaica.ru/uajournal.htm
English Page: http://altaica.ru/e_uajournal.htm
This publication is unique for several reasons:
1) The journal is bilingual; all papers are published in both the Russian
and English languages.
2) For the first time, roughly equal number of works by authors from
Russian provinces and by foreign authors are published in a journal on
Uralic and Altaic languages.
3) Publication of works is always free for the authors; the only criterion
for publication is expert evaluation of the scientific value of the paper.
4) All papers are evaluated by two (three or more in controversial cases)
independent reviewers. They evaluate papers on the following criteria: a)
scientific novelty, b) knowledge of the literature on the question, c)
scientific value, and d) quality of presentation. Accepted are only works
with two highest or one highest and one medium rating. Thus, only papers
with a very high scientific level are published.
The first issue of the journal is distributed free of charge. Other issues
will be available only by subscription.
Why do we recommend subscribing to the journal "Issues in Philology:
Ural-Altaic Studies" before April 1, 2010?
1) Every issue will contain at least 10 completely new works (we publish
only the works with more than 70% of previously unpublished material) by
leading specialists in all areas of Uralic and Altaic language research.
Without the knowledge of these works, the authors of subsequent works might
experience difficulties satisfying criterion (b) in journals reviewed by
SCADT: "knowledge of the literature on the question."
2) We have introduced a "Discussion" section in the journal. In this
section we will publish critical remarks on the papers from the previous
issue. Minimum size of the remarks is one half of the page. There is no
waiting period for publication of critical remarks on papers from the
latest issue, but one has to be acquainted with all the latest
publications. We don't accept critical remarks later then three month from
the publication date of the original paper. Therefore, it is very important
to receive new issues of the journal in due time.
3) This journal will be distributed free of charge to a very limited number
of libraries, most of which are situated in Moscow (according to Russian
legislation acts). Without subscription the journal would be practically
inaccessible for researchers from other cities and towns and from abroad.
We remind that publishing of the electronic version of the journal on the
web or any other way of its distribution is a violation of Russian
We regret that the journal can be obtained only through subscription, but
this is a general rule for all SCDAT journals. We have tried to keep the
price as low as possible (it includes only prime cost plus shipping
expenses) and to facilitate subscription.
You can find all information, necessary for subscription, on the last pages
of the journal.
For those who don't carry bank cards, we have printed a payment slip on the
last page of the journal. Filling it out will take no longer than 5
minutes. Then you have to take it to any bank branch and pay.
Visa or Mastercard holders will be able to order and pay for the journal in
ten minutes right on their computer through the PAYPAL system. You will
have to log on to www.paypal.com (registration on this secure site takes
about five minutes), it will take you another five minutes to write a
letter to the publishers through the PAYPAL system. Letters should be sent
