Financing of post graduate publishing activity will double in 2019
RUDN plans to double the budget of the competition for the support of postgraduate publications in journals indexed by the Web of Science (WoS) and Scopus databases, as well as the number of prize places. This was announced at the meeting of the Project 5-100 Management Committee by RUDN Rector Vladimir Filippov.

PhDs and require 1 publication in journals indexed by the Web of Science (WoS) and Scopus databases should help graduate students.

First Vice-Rector have the opportunity to make free publications:

“We have 5 logs in WoS / Scopus databases. For example, “Gravity and Cosmology”, included in Q2, has 2 journals in mathematics “Modern Mathematics” and “Fundamental Directions” and a joint journal with the Kazakh Academy of Experimental Institute named after Al-Farabi. Our scientists publish many articles and with each year the quality and quantity grow. More than 100 publications in Q1 were made by chemists in 2018. ”

RUDN soil scientists developed a new method for assessing soil fertility

RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.

RUDN chemist developed a new catalyst for “green” biofuels

A RUDN chemist has synthesized a catalyst for the production of gamma-valerolactone — an energy-intensive “green” biofuel. The catalyst based on zirconium dioxide and zeolite has shown high efficiency in converting the waste of wood plant materials — methyl levulinate — to gamma-valerolactone.
