Russian Scholarly Journals in Science Communication

Higher Education in Russia and Beyond. 2017. Vol. 1. No. 11. P. 7-9.
The paper summarises results of a pilot study aimed at assessment of the representation of Russian science in the media in order to understand to what extent contemporary Russian academic journals are included into popular science communication. The analysis showed that most of the media publications reporting on the achievements of Russian scientists did not cite academic publications. Low visibility of Russian scholarly journals in popular media calls into question the importance of their role in science communication. The probable reason for that in the Russian academia, “the weight” of a statement depends more on the social status of a scientist or other public figure than on the system of scientific communication through professional journals.
