For Authors

Dear authors!

The articles published in the journal are intended for professionals in the field of preservation and restoration of cultural heritage, historians, culturologists, graduate students, masters and bachelors. The editorial board provides open access to published issues of the journal: electronic texts of published articles are available fully and free of charge for all users of the journal's website, readers of Cyberleninka, the Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI), and Readera. In compliance with the requirements of bibliographic databases (eLibrary, Scopus and Web of Science), the Editorial Board of the journal has introduced more complex rules of scientific reference standards than in many other journals.

E-mail of the Editor-in-Chief:

E-mail of the Editorial Board:

All manuscripts of research articles submitted for publication are reviewed by members of the Editorial Board, as well as by ad hoc reviewers. The review is blind, i.e. the author and the reviewer are unknown to each other. A three-month review period is usually provided; then the Editorial Board decides whether to accept the article for publication (with or without revision) or reject it. The executive editor of the Editorial Board informs the author about the decision of the Editorial Board and sends him/her the editorial conclusion on the article via e-mail. If the reviewers express the opinion that the article should be revised, this requirement is mandatory for the author (provided this condition is not met, the article will not be published).

The following articles are not accepted for reviewing:

1) the main material of which has already been published by the author in another journal or posted on the Internet (under a different title, in another edition or in co-authorship),

2) containing unethical borrowings from texts of other authors (plagiarism over 10% of the volume of the submitted article) and inaccurate bibliographic description of used studies (articles and monographs) and published sources (memoirs, collections of documents, etc.),

3) not formatted in compliance with the standards stipulated by the Editorial Board,
