1st issue of Russian Review, Safe Internet League-instituted pro-Russian science journal, published


The 1st issue of Russian Review, an academic journal instituted by the Safe Internet League to advance and popularize research by Russian scientists among their international colleagues, has been published. The journal is published in English and is selectively distributed in print form among the most authoritative international scholars.

The new 2015 issue features seven of the papers which competed for publication in the journal. The competition welcomed papers in sociology, economics, and jurisprudence that dealt with issues of developing and providing online security and involved Internet in their research. The selected papers, translated into English, made it onto the electronic and print versions of the journal’s 1st issue, to be distributed among the international Academia. The issue featured papers by

  • Yevgeniya Danilova (Baikal State University of Economics and Law): ‘Focused interview allows one to discover new ideas and unexpected angles. Conducted on social networks, this method attains maximum accessibility’;
  • Polina Shterk and Yekaterina Dragunova (Novosibirsk State Technical University): ‘Our paper presents a method of monitoring small and medium enterprise performance that involves assessing SME performance not only by statistic indices, but also through analysing the blogosphere, allowing one to quickly detect business development issues’;
  • Magomet Yandiyev (Moscow State University): ‘My paper argues that the present Internet conditions favour an entirely new finance model. It claims that the existing models (classical finance, corporate finance, and Islamic finance) will soon be expanded by an Internet finance model, defined by the ‘future money value exceeds its present one’ principle’;
  • Olga Gukosyants (Pyatigorsk State Linguistics University): ‘My paper owes its novelty to its defining the characterological male and female linguistic contexts of English-language Internet chat rooms and blogs. These patterns allowed proposing a possible way of masking one’s online gender identity though use of opposite gender-specific speech markers’;
  • Svetlana Shlyakhova (State National Research Polytechnical University of Perm): ‘Creating an international interactive Web portal for joint academic, educational, and innovative research into linguistic iconism’;
  • Maksim Bureyev, Anton Shumov, Yegor Yakovlev, et al. (Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation): ‘Our paper deals with analysing official local government websites of Federal subjects of Russia to find the one featuring the best framework for disclosing budget data, visualising the information, and overall design. The three leading contenders receiving top marks are websites of the Leningrad, Altai, and Krasnoyarsk regions’;
  • Safe Internet League: ‘The paper presents the Internet Search Engines Safety Ranking. IS2, one of the top ratings, was assigned to Sputnik (sputnik.ru) due to there being no restrictions on its use by underage persons’.
It is to be recalled that the pilot (zero) issue of Russian Review was published last August and distributed among the top 200 international scholars according to Social Science Research Network’s Author Rank. Since April 2015 issues of Russian Review are featured on the largest Russian online scientific library Elibrary.ru. The cooperation provided the journal’s authors with a wide academic readership both in Russia and abroad.
