Guidance to Authors

All articles are published free of charge.

We recommend having a look at the conception of the journal and its contents before submitting an article.

The Requirements for Articles:

1. Wordage. The editorial board accepts articles of no more than 11 000 characters (including space characters) — for applicants for the degree of Candidate of Science and of no more than 20 000 characters — for applicants for the degree of Doctor of Science. The wordage of the article does not include abstract, keywords, references, credits about the author/s in Russian and English.

2. Text format. The article should be submitted in Microsoft Word format. The size of the body text: font size 14, line interval 1,5; margins: left — 3 cm, right, bottom and top — 2 cm. The paragraph indention is 1,25 (please, do not use SPACE and TAB buttons for this purpose).

Abstract, keywords, notes, references, and credits are typed in font size 14, line interval — 1,0. (See the sample below.)

3. The structure of the article.

In the beginning of the article (on the first page, center alignment) there should be the following information:

  • the title in English;
  • the first, second name / surname of the author(s) in English;
  • the organizational / institutional affiliation of the author(s) in English (if it is necessary one can mention two organizations / institutions);
  • abstract and keywords in English (justify alignment; without indention);
  • source of grant support (if applicable).

Then the body of the article is included. Typically, the structure of the article consists of the following: introduction (the topicality of the research, the degree of its development), the purpose and objectives, methods employed, results, conclusion. Certain parts of the content should be highlighted with subtitles (justify alignment, lower-case, semibold italics).

In the end of the article there should be:

1. Reference (if you use books, articles, etc. originally published in languages with non-Latin alphabets, please use transliteration);

2. the title in Russian;

3. the first, second name / surname of the author(s) in Russian;

4. the organizational / institutional affiliation of the author(s) in Russian;

5. source of grant support in Russian (if applicable).

6. credits in English and Russian [first, second name /surname (in full), academic degree, academic title, position held, membership in scientific communities (academies, unions, etc.), telephone numbers (office and home ones with area code — only the office one will be mentioned in the publication), e-mail]. Postgraduates, doctoral candidates, candidates for a degree should necessarily mention the telephone numbers of their departments, scientific units, etc.

4. Abstract and keywords.

The abstract (summary) should be informative, accurate, and completed. It is a brief resume of the article that can be published separately. Thus, it should be comprehensible without reference to the article.

The abstract should include the significant facts of the research without any exaggeration of the author’s contribution. It is better if the structure of the abstract is similar to the article’s structure (introduction, goals and objectives, indication of methods, results and consideration, conclusions).

The abstract is the main source of information about the article in citation indexing services and bibliographic databases.

The abstract should contain not less than 200, but not more than 300 words. It should not incorporate the following: generally known statements, quotations, abridgments, abbreviations, superfluous introductory phrases.

The abstract in Russian should be written according to the rules of Russian grammar and stylistics and with the use of professional terminology approved in academic publications (if applicable). Please, do not use automatic language translation services without professional editing. The translation should convey the original meaning, but it is not necessary to translate the abstract literally.

There should be no more than 10 keywords or word-combinations in the article. They should reflect the content of the article, determine the topical area of the research, and occur in the text of the article.

Please, test your keywords in citation indexing services (e.g., Russian Science Citation Index, Scopus, Web of Science, etc.).

5. Citations and References

Please, use parenthetical referencing, also known as Harvard referencing, i.e. the references to the sources of citations or other pieces of information should be formatted in text within brackets: (author, year: page). For example: “As A. N. Ivanov argues in his paper (Ivanov, 2013: 8), the dialogical interactions…” Only items mentioned in the text should be in References in alphabetical order.

For example:


Wells, S. (2010) Shakespeare, Sex, and Love. Oxford : Oxford University Press.

Wakai, I. (2013) Consideration Concerning the Traditional Regional Culture and Environmental Education that Support the Conservation of Ecosystems of Lagoons around Lake Biwa (A Case Study of Lake Nishi-no-ko in Shiga Prefecture). Znanie. Ponimanie. Umenie. [Knowledge. Understanding. Skill], no. 1., pp. 28–31.

If there are works by an author that were published in the same year, one should use alphabetic code (a, b, c, etc.). For instance, 2006а, 2006b.

6. Notes (if any) should be after the body text. Please, use endnotes.

7. No more than two table forms (enumerated and entitled) are acceptable. Very large table forms, pictures, diagrams are not allowed.

NB: Articles with special characters are not accepted.

The template of the article can be downloaded here.


The author should also submit scanned copies of the following documents:

1) A licence agreement;

2) An agreement for personal data processing.

Postgraduates and applicants for an academic degree should also submit an official extract from a decision of the department (or another subdivision) where the scholarly work was done. This document must contain a recommendation that the article should be published in the journal.

The documents should be signed and the signatures should be certified.

The originals of the documents should be posted to the address:

Valery A. Lukov, deputy editor-in-chief

"Knowledge. Understanding. Skill" Journal

The Institute of Fundamental and Applied Studies,

Bldg. 6,  Yunosti St. 5, 111395 Moscow, Russian Federation.

All articles and scanned documents should be submitted by e-mail zpu@mosgu.ru.


Courtesy (author’s) copies are not provided. In order to receive an issue of the journal one should take out a subscription. The subscription index in the Rospechat Agency — 20881.

The journal is also available at retail at Moscow University for the Humanities (3rd building, the 1st floor).


All submitted papers are checked for plagiarism, originality and novelty. The outcome is determined after analyzing the online check report and manual examination of original fragments, textual borrowings, quotes and citations. Contributions that passed the formal check undergo double-blind peer review by three experts (all personal information remains unknown both to the contributor(s) and experts). Accepted articles are assigned to an issue according to the journal's publishing schedule.

Reviewers assess the contributions according to a rubric, which includes a number of criteria: readability of the title; topicality of the article; matching the journal's area of focus; the degree of interest in the topic for both specialists and general readers; the article's compliance with the profile and the scope of the journal; field and contribution type (fundamental, interdisciplinary, or applied, survey, review article); academic novelty; practical relevance of data, conclusions and recommendations; references to reliable research sources; reliance on empirical studies (including those conducted by the author(s)); correct style and formatting of the contribution, its abstract, keywords and references in accordance with the journal's guides.

The Editorial Board informs the author about the decision upon his/her request. If a paper is not accepted, the Editorial Board sends a motivated refusal. The details of the reviews may be sent by e-mail (on request).

Submission date is an important factor in determining publication precedence. The average review duration is 2–3 months.


The editors of the “Knowledge. Understanding. Skill” Journal (Znanie. Ponimanie. Umenie) work in accordance with the international publication ethics principles, including but not limited to privacy policy, vigilance over the scholarly publications, consideration of possible conflict of interests, etc. The editorial board follows the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics and, in particular, the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit proposed by Elsevier.

Duties of the Editors and Reviewers

Editors and reviewers should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious views, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political opinions of the authors.

Any submitted manuscript is considered as a confidential document. The editors and any editorial staff are obliged not to disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor’s own research without the express written consent of the author.

Editors should recuse themselves (i.e. should ask a co-editor, associate editor or other member of the editorial board instead to review and consider) from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers.

The editorial board should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or society). Such measures will generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving due consideration of the respective complaint or claims made, but may also include further communications to the relevant institutions and research bodies.

Duties of Authors

Authors of submitted papers should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper.

Authors are obliged to submit their own and original scholarly work (i.e. never published before).

A paper should contain sufficient details and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Authors should submit an article for the consideration only to the “Knowledge. Understanding. Skill” Journal (Znanie. Ponimanie. Umenie) at one particular moment. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in a published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learn from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper.

Contributors, please consult the Guidance for Authors and the Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement. For more details about publication ethics you may refer to, for instance, the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit.
