  • to develop scientific cooperation between Russian and foreign sociolinguists, as well as specialists in related fields;
  • to acquaint readers with the latest Russian and international research in the field of macrosociolinguistics;
  • publish the results of original theoretical, applied and descriptive research;
  • to educate and disseminate scientific knowledge about various language situations for a wide range of readers.

You will see

  • regular thematic issues with invited Russian and foreign co-editors;
  • a permanent column dedicated to the review of scientific papers "Macrosociolinguistics in Russia and the world";
  • a permanent educational column "Just about the difficult", aimed at a wide readership;
  • a discussion platform for discussing issues related to the preservation of languages, language policy and language planning;
  • the permanent heading "The Word to the young".

"The need for a publication that would combine various theoretical and methodological approaches in the field of minority languages research has been overdue for a long time.

What is our goal? A platform is needed for the publication of multidisciplinary studies of minority languages by methods of various fields of scientific knowledge: macrosociolinguistics, law, ethnology, history, philosophy, psychology and dialectology.

The magazine has an important social mission - the preservation and support of minority languages. In this regard, bilingual articles in Russian/English and minority languages will be published on the pages of the publication," Svetlana Moskvicheva, editor-in-chief of the journal "Macroscociolinguistics and Minority Languages"

In 2017, RUDN University scientists constructed a new explicit second-order precision difference scheme using modern computer algebra methods for 2-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations (NSE) [1]. This year, our mathematicians used a new scheme [2] to construct a numerical solution to the Cauchy problem with initial data (for t=0) as satisfying the continuity equation. Scientists managed to achieve previously unattainable accuracy of the continuity equation.
