The Soviet system of historical periodicals in the postwar period: structural transformation and strategies of communication
The study of post-World War II historical periodicals in the historiography of Soviet science was devoted par excellence to certain journals. These were studied in the context of contestations between politics and bureaucrats, on the one hand, and scholars, on the other. This article will consider the whole system of periodicals in the field, focusing on its substantial transformations in the 1950s–1960s in the context of the evolution of both academic institutions and the publishing industry. The description of the changes in the corpus of journals and its functioning, the transformation of the evaluation system, the emergence of new communication strategies, and forms of representation of historical knowledge are based on an analysis not only of journals themselves, but also on archival documents and relevant statistical data.
University Geralds (Vestniki) are the most rapidly growing segment of the academic periodicals in contemporary Russia. However, their academic quality has repeatedly been questioned. The aim of the article is to describe the ways of the representation of academic community and organization of a publication flow, as well as to analyze the functioning of these periodicals in the context of post-Soviet university culture.
This essay adresses the discussion on the "provincial and aboriginal science" which were initiated by the editors of 'Antropologicheskii Forum' / 'Forum for Anthropology and Culture' in the connection with the publication of the paper of M.Sokolov and K.Titaev.
The development of recent research information systems allows a transformation of citations in the full text of research papers into interactive elements. Such interactivity in some cases works as an instrument of direct scholarly communications between citing and cited authors. We discuss this challenge for research e-infrastructure development including opportunities for improvements in research cooperation and in collaboration mechanisms for the global research community.
Article deals with the mechanisms of perception of early Soviet period of university history during the Khrushchev thaw and Brezhnev stagnation - both formal and informal levels . If at first , in the second half of 1950 and in 1960 , it was about strengthening the legitimacy of science through an appeal to her heroic past ( perirdu activities of Lenin and Lunacharsky , etc. ), then in the 1970s the focus is already on continuity with the legacy of post-revolutionary development of late imperial Russia and the common heritage of the so-called " Silver Age ."
The question of sustainability in the open access movement has been widely debated, yet satisfactory answers have yet to be generated: How do we move from an approach entirely based on temporary projects to an approach based on community-based sustainable infrastructure? What kinds of social and technical infrastructures could support the Knowledge Commons? What values and services are being delivered, by which stakeholders, and for whom? What governance and financial models are possible? Given the global nature of scholarly communication, how do we ensure that the designs of the Commons are inclusive of voices from the global South?
This volume collects nine selected papers presented at ELPUB2018 Conference in June 2018 in Toronto. Each paper was carefully selected, reviewed and edited to bring to an international audience the latest contributions from researchers and experts in the field. In addition to the technical issues related to interoperability of systems, research workflow, content preservation, and other services, the selected papers address the design and implementation of a community-based research communication infrastructure.
ELPUB Conference has featured research results in various aspects of digital publishing for over two decades, involving a diverse international community of librarians, developers, publishers, entrepreneurs, administrators and researchers across the disciplines in the sciences and the humanities.
The results of cross-cultural research of implicit theories of innovativeness among students and teachers, representatives of three ethnocultural groups: Russians, the people of the North Caucasus (Chechens and Ingushs) and Tuvinians (N=804) are presented. Intergroup differences in implicit theories of innovativeness are revealed: the ‘individual’ theories of innovativeness prevail among Russians and among the students, the ‘social’ theories of innovativeness are more expressed among respondents from the North Caucasus, Tuva and among the teachers. Using the structural equations modeling the universal model of values impact on implicit theories of innovativeness and attitudes towards innovations is constructed. Values of the Openness to changes and individual theories of innovativeness promote the positive relation to innovations. Results of research have shown that implicit theories of innovativeness differ in different cultures, and values make different impact on the attitudes towards innovations and innovative experience in different cultures.
