THE EDITORIAL POLICY OF THE JOURNAL ‘VESTNIK OF ST. PETERSBURG UNIVERSITY’ has its foundations in relevant issues and scientific novelty within individual fields of research in the context of which it publishes materials (in particular formats and thematically oriented sections) corresponding to that foundation. The journal presents different perspectives which are encountered in the polemics of different countries.

THE JOURNAL IS REALISING AN INDEPENDENT (DOUBLE-BLIND) EDITORIAL POLICY as part of its editorial portfolio. This will take the form of a public tribunal for free academic exchange. The Editorial Board adheres by a clear border between editing materials for their scientific value and censorship, for which reason the opinions and stylistics of the authors of referee reports and reviews may not be shared by members of the editorial staff or the Editorial Commission.

THE JOURNAL PUBLISHES MATERIALS ON A COMPETITIVE BASIS which unreservedly answer to the active requirements of scientific and informational innovation. We do not permit publication of of articles published earlier in the same language in which they have been submitted. Nor do we accept those previously submitted to other publishers for publication (even if they contain only superficial, editorial alterations). All submitted manuscripts pass through an editing process for scientific content by managing specialists of SPbSU.

THE CLASSIC TRADITION OF VESTNIK SPbSU represents painstaking authorial, editorial and publishing work with submitted materials that allows it to present the results of scientific research in the highest quality.
