In connection with the preparation of the journal for index-linking in the international analytical system Sciverse Scopus editors of the journal ask to pay special attention to abstract composing in correspondence with peculiarities of this genre.

Keywords must reflect the main content of the article; determine the subject area of the study; occur in the text of the article (proper names, general concepts and general scientific terms are not keywords).

The sections «Bibliography list» and References are arranged below the article separately (Times New Roman, body-size 9). «Bibliography list» must contain no less than 20 items. It is recommended that at least 30% of the sources included in the bibliographic list must be works published in English and other foreign languages. Numbering of Bibliography list and its reference in the text are performed without automatic arrangement of references.

According to the requirements of Scopus, the References section must have the following structure:

– references to sources (Sources):

- Collected Works

- Individual Works

– references to the articles in scientific journals (Articles from Scientific Journals);

– references to the articles in collections of scientific works (Articles from Proceedings and Collections of Research Papers);

– references to monographs (Monographs);

– references to theses and abstracts of theses (Thesis and Thesis Abstracts);

– references to electronic resources (Electronic Resources).

The necessary date-line: for journals articles – year, volume, issue number, pages; for books – place of publication, year, number of pages. Place of publication including Moscow and Saint-Petersburg is written in full.

One system of transliteration must be applied available at http://translit.ru (in the list «Variants» choose variant BGN). Samples of bibliography descriptions arrangement in sections «Bibliography list» and References are at journal’s site http://solovyov-studies.ispu.ru  and at journal’s page http://www.ispu.ru/node/6623

In texts typed in Latin, the quotation mark variant “...” is used.

5.Reference arrangement.

References to the cited literature when using direct quoting (if the quote is a detailed, complete statement with an indication of the author and the source of the quote) are made in the text in square brackets. For example: In the work "Dialectics of Myth" (1930), A. F. Losev writes:" The text of the quotation" [1, p. 15] (the first digit indicates the ordinal number in the List of References, the second -the page of the cited source). If indirect quoting or partial quoting techniques are used (i.e., individual words, phrases, turns of speech), then the link is made out as a subscript (in the text – an upper index; at the bottom of the page, a bibliographic description of the cited source is given-under a solid line separating the main text, Times New Roman font, size 9). For example: See: Igosheva T.V. The early lyrics of A.A. Blok (1898-1904): poetics of religious symbolism. Moscow: Global Com, 2013. Pp. 15-25 [1]. Just like a subscript link (with an upper index), author's notes are also drawn up.

When repeating reference in a page-by-page footnote, an abbreviated version of the bibliographic description of the source is used (it is allowed to shorten long names of sources; date-line is omitted). If the repeated link goes immediately below the link with the bibliographic description of the source, the following entry is used: Ibid. P.....

References to electronic resources are allowed only in the absence of their "paper" counterparts, with the correct indication of the address of the web page and the date of access to it.
