Russian Journal of Linguistics in Scopus database

Vestnik Rossiiskogo Universiteta Druzhby Narodov. Seriya: Lingvistika / Russian Journal of Linguistics has been evaluated for inclusion in Scopus by the Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB). The review is now complete and the CSAB has advised that the journal will be accepted for inclusion in Scopus.

CSAB expert comments that this journal publishes original research in the area of linguistics, in Russian and English. English-language content appears to be rigorous, and abstracts are fairly detailed and clear.

 Among supporting reasons the experts give the following: 

  • The journal consistently includes articles that are scientifically sound and relevant to an international academic or professional audience in this field. 
  • The abstracts are generally clear and provide an excellent summary of each article’s content. 
  • The abstracts are in keeping with Scopus English Language requirements. 
  • In general, the content of the articles is consistent with the scope and aims of the journal. 
  • The articles are consistently of high academic quality, consistent with the journal’s stated aims. 
  • The articles are generally well written and understandable. 
  • The journal has clear aims and scope/journal policies that are consistent with the journal’s content. 

In August 2017, the journal was included in WoS Core Collection's Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).
The double victory is the result of team work and enthusiasm of Chief Editor Tatiana Larina, DSc (Philology), professor of the Department of foreign languages of the Philological faculty.

We wish the journal new heights and growing interest of the articles’ authors and readers!

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
