We are still accepting suitable submissions for the following 6th special issue, and are especially interested in papers focussing on specific or understudied sub-themes within the general issue of anti-Western tendencies in current Russia. For instance, we will have a sub-section on post-Soviet ultra-nationalist tendencies in comparative perspective, i.e. in juxtaposition to similar tendencies in Belarusand Ukraine.
We require properly footnoted, scholarly researched, well-structured, and thoroughly edited texts with a length of no less than 4,000 and no more than 14,000 words. Papers should be based on primary as well as secondary sources, which are fully listed in the footnotes.
We are not only interested in original papers that have not been published. We are happy to re-publish papers that might have been printed in Russian or other languages before, but are, so far, not available in Russian language, on the WWW. In the case that a paper has been published in Russian language before, in a printed edition (journal, collected volume) only, authors will have to provide an explicit permission, by the editors of the periodical or book where the article originally appeared, for re-publication as a PDF file in our web journal.
Papers accepted content-wise for publication will only be published in case of a proper adaptation of its linguistic quality and formal style (footnotes, headings, references, citations etc.) to the standards of the « Forum » by the author/s, by 15 February 2012. Please, use this text as a model with regard to the formal style required of the final editions of the papers to be prepared for publication: http://www1.ku-eichstaett.de/ZIMOS/forum/docs/forumruss14/7Shekhovtsov.pdf
All versions of the papers should be submitted as MS Word Documents.
For authors who wish to publish an English-, German- or Ukrainian-language text on the special issue’s topic in Russian language, we can provide qualified Russian translating services. Unfortunately, however, the costs for this translation will have to borne fully by the author her- or himself. In addition, after the provision of a draft translation by our expert-translator, authors will be required to carefully check the translated Russian draft version, before the translator produces the final version of the text for print.
The translator will, after delivering a satisfactory final version of the translation, have to be paid, by the author/s, EUR0.07 per word of the English, German or Ukrainian original version of the article, i.e., for instance, EUR350.00 for a 5,000-word article. (This word count includes also non-Russian bibliographical literature listed in the footnotes that will not be translated into Russian or transcribed in Cyrillic, yet the formal style of which will be adapted to the format of the « Forum » by the translator.) The copyright of the Russian version of the article remains with the translator until the author has made payment for the translation.
Authors of texts that have been published in English, German or Ukrainian before are advised to clarify with the editors of the periodical, book, or non-Russian web site where the paper originally appeared whether re-publication in a Russian-language web journal is permissible. The editors of the « Forum » will not take responsibility for any violations of copyright.
Please, submit your text until either 1 January 2012(non-Russian papers), or 1 February 2012(Russian papers), as an MS Word Document, to: firstname.lastname@example.org (with cc to email@example.com) or as a hard copy to:
