The problem of peripheral development of the BRICS countries
The problem of peripheral development of the BRICS countries
Denis Degterev devoted his research to how the problem of peripheral development of the participating countries is overcome in the framework of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Using the example of a network analysis of the top 5 partners of each of the BRICS countries, the author showed a network of current interaction among the participating countries.

The network analysis itself is a method for analyzing the start and end dates of the unrealized parts of the project, which allows linking the implementation of various activties and processes over time, having received a forecast of the total duration of the entire project.

According to the results of his research, Denis concluded that the maximum values of centrality indicators in the BRICS trade network are occupied by the PRC, slightly lower indicators are held by the USA and Germany, which fits into the concept of the formation of “new bipolarity”, but to a lesser extent indicates the active development of integration of countries members of the BRICS and the strengthening of multipolarity. In conclusion, the author noted the prospects for further research on this topic and for conducting a network analysis of the interaction of the BRICS countries in the field of international educational cooperation, in the field of international air traffic (network of flights between countries), as well as in international finance (correspondent banking system).

Reference: The Association of International Studies is one of the oldest and largest professional interdisciplinary associations of international researchers studying transnational and global issues. The convention of the association annually gathers more than six thousand scientists, practitioners, policy experts, private sector workers and independent researchers from more than 30 countries of the world: Germany, Russia, Mexico, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, France, Spain, Italy, Romania, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Sweden, UK, USA, etc. This year, the key theme of the convention was the state of affairs in the science of international relations. Denis Degterev, Head of the Department of Theory and History of International Relations, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, RUDN University, presented the study “Network Analysis of Cooperation within BRICS: Operationalizing the World-Systems Theory” at the 60th annual convention of the Association for International Studies “Re-visioning International Studies: Innovation and Progress »In Toronto (Canada).

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 University chemists proposed a way to reduce three times the temperature for the oxidation of alkanes

RUDN University chemists and their colleagues from the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed new catalysts that allow to reduce the temperature of the oxidation reaction of alkanes three times — from 150 to 50 degrees. This significantly reduces the cost of synthesizing alcohols, aldehydes and other compounds needed, in particular, for the production of nylon and capron.
