For Authors

The journal accepts manuscripts which have not been previously published. All articles are published in Russian or in English. If you write your paper in English, you may use either American or British English, but not a mixture of these. Authors writing in their non-native language are advised to have their articles thoroughly edited by professionals with native-level proficiency in that language prior to submission. Before submitting an article, all authors are strictly advised to familiarize themselves with the Instructions for Contributors:


The metadata of the article include author’s name, title, abstract and key words. The names of authors must be listed in the alphabetical order above the title. For each author indicate his or her affiliation. The abstract must be of 150-250 words, it should be self-contained (no abbreviations, footnotes, or incomplete references) for use in abstracting journals and databases. The abstract must be informative and well-structured. Papers should contain 5-10 key words provided below the abstract. The list of key words must be informative and specific to the content of the article.


We ask our authors to follow the principles of this style guide while preparing their papers for publication.

Trudy instituta russkogo yazyka imeni V.V. Vinogradova (Proceedings of the V.V. Vinogradov Russian Language Institute) is a peer-reviewed journal. Every submitted article is evaluated by at least two members of the advisory board and, if needed, by other reviewers with relevant experience and expertise (double-blind peer-review). Within a month, the author receives the editors’ response with their decision and a list of any changes needed for the article to be accepted for publication.


A double-blind peer review method is mandatory for processing of all scientific manuscripts submitted to the editorial stuff of “Trudy Instituta Russkogo Yazyka imeni V.V. Vinogradova" (Proceedins of the V.V. Vinogradov Russian Language Institute). This implies that neither the reviewer is aware of the authorship of the manuscript, nor the author maintains any contact with the reviewer.

  1. Members of the editorial board and leading Russian and international experts in corresponding areas of linguistics perform peer reviews. Editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief or science editor choose readers for peer review. We aim to limit the review process to 3-4 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer’s request.
  2. Reviewer has an option to abnegate the assessment should any conflict of interests arise that may affect perception or interpretation of the manuscript. Upon the scrutiny, the reviewer is expected to present the editorial board with one of the following recommendations: - to accept the paper in its present state; - to invited the author to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before final decision is reached; - that final decision be reached following further reviewing by another specialist; - to reject the manuscript outright.
  3. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author either to implement the corrections, or to dispute them reasonably. Authors are kindly required to limit their revision to 2 months and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.
  4. We politely request that the editor be notified verbally or in writing should the author decide to refuse from publishing the manuscript. In case the author fails to do so within 3 months since receiving a copy of the initial review, the editorial board takes the manuscript off the register and notifies the author accordingly.
  5. If author and reviewers meet insoluble contradictions regarding revision of the manuscript, the editor-in-chief resolves the conflict by his own authority.
  6. The editorial board reaches final decision to reject a manuscript on the hearing according to reviewers’ recommendations, and duly notifies the authors of their decision via e-mail. The board does not accept previously rejected manuscripts for reevaluation.
  7. Upon the decision to accept the manuscript for publishing, the editorial staff notifies the authors of the scheduled date of publication.
  8. Kindly note that positive review does not guarantee the acceptance, as final decision in all cases lies with the editorial board. By his authority, editor-in-chief rules final solution of every conflict.
  9. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 5 years.

  1. Authorship and transparency
    By submitting a paper, the authors confirm their authorship of the submitted article. The journal does not require all authors of a research paper to sign the letter of submission. Submission is taken by the journal to mean that all the listed authors have agreed all of the contents.

    Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work (in research or writing) contributed to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors. No one who made a meaningful contribution to the article should be left out and each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content of the article. Funding for any type of publication should be stated within the publication. Other sources of support for publications should be clearly identified in the manuscript, usually in an acknowledgement. Authors should make full acknowledgement of colleagues and other researchers who have made a meaningful contribution to the paper submitted for publication.

    Authors should ensure that they clearly cite, reference and acknowledge all instances where they have used or been influenced by the work of others, including their own previously published articles and research material. Any form of plagiarism will not be tolerated.

    Self plagiarism (redundant publication) also must be avoided. Authors must inform the editors of the journal about any related papers by any of the authors of the article that have been submitted to other journals.

  2. First publication and copyright
    Original research articles submitted to the Trudy Instituta Russkogo Yazyka imeni V.V. Vinogradova (Proceedins of the V.V. Vinogradov Russian Language Institute) must not have been published as copyrighted material elsewhere. Manuscripts under consideration by the Trudy Instituta Russkogo Yazyka imeni V.V. Vinogradova (Proceedins of the V.V. Vinogradov Russian Language Institute ) should not be submitted for review by other publication. If an article reproduces research material, tables, images, the author must seek permission to use that material and fully acknowledge the owner and/or copyright owner of that material.

    By submitting a manuscript, the author agrees that the copyright will be transferred to the Trudy Instituta Russkogo Yazyka imeni V.V. Vinogradova (Proceedins of the V.V. Vinogradov Russian Language Institute) if the manuscript and associated multimedia are accepted for publication. The author retains the rights to the fair use (e.g., teaching and nonprofit uses) of the published material.

  3. Dishonesty and libel
    Authors must use their best endeavors to ensure the material that they submit contains no fictitious data, reference omissions, or false statements. When the authors discover a significant error or inaccuracy in their own published work, it is the authors' obligation to promptly notify the journal editor and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. Authors should avoid the use of personal, critical, or disparaging remarks and accusations against fellow researchers, colleagues or other individuals.

  4. Peer‐reviewing
    Reviewers should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

    The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

    Reviewers should have no conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders.

    Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

    Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation.

    A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

  5. Editors' responsibilities
    Editors have sole responsibility for acceptance or rejection of a manuscript. Manuscripts should have peer review, but the editors may reject or accept for cause (inappropriate for journal, clearly of poor quality, contents previously published elsewhere, etc.). Editors should only accept a paper when reasonably certain.

    Editors should guarantee the quality of the papers and the integrity of the academic record and be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.

    Editors should have no conflict of interest with respect to articles they reject or accept.

    Editors should preserve anonymity of reviewers.

    Editors should ensure that all research material they publish conforms to internationally accepted ethical guidelines.
