Paper processing procedure

Papers submitted to the editorial office are evaluated according to the journal requirements and format. If the paper is assessed positively, it is anonymized and sent by the editorial office to two peer-reviewers. Both reviewers complete a paper evaluation form and make a decision on whether they recommend the text for publication. The reviewers may recommend accepting the text for publication (without revision, with minor revision, or with serious revision), or rejecting it. If the text is generally recommended, the author revises it according to the reviewers’ notes, and sends it to the editor. The editor provides comments to the author, and the author takes them into account and creates the final version.  In preparation for publication, formatted papers are sent to authors via email for approval. The author signs a contract assigning the intellectual property rights to the publisher.

Formatting

Font: Times New Roman. Spacing: 1.5. Size: 14-point for the main text, 11-point for footnotes.

Footnotes and references

Footnotes must be numbered consecutively, on each page. Footnotes must be formatted in accordance with APA (American Psychological Association) style.

Do not use numeration in the source reference in the text. Indicate the author’s last name, without initials, and the year of publication in square brackets.

Examples:

As Schafer notes in “The Soundscape” [Schafer, 1993], the use of the understanding of “soundscape” is justified a wide range of fields – acoustics, psycho-acoustics, and otology, in communication and recording engineering, linguistics and music theory, as in the field of urban ecology and urban planning 5 .

5  A. Vozyanov classifies the professional interests of similar researchers and provides detailed bibliographic references. In his article “Soundscape of the Municipal Court”, he notes that “environmentalists <...> focus on the study of ‘sound ecology’ and problems of noise pollution, while social geographers and cartographers focus on the preparation of auditory maps and guides; cultural anthropologists describe the musical culture of the city as an element of the local identity and as a tourist attraction. <...> The scale of urban auditory coming to the attention of researchers has ranged from the city as a whole or even a group of cities to individual events, such as festivals or specific urban areas (ghettos, clubs, individual blocks)” [Vozyanov, 2014b] .

[Vozyanov, 2014a], <…>  [Vozyanov, 2014b] – in the event the text contains several references to various publications of the same author made during one year;

 [Romanov, Yarskaya-Smirnova, 2009] – in case the source has several authors; [Schafer, 1993; Colombjin, 2007] – in the event the author(s) refer to several sources;

 [Shafer, 1993: 6–7] – in the event the author(s) refer to a specific page in the text or quote the text;

 [Ben’jamin, 1996, 2004] -  in the event of reference to several publications by one author;

 [Urban Planning…, 2013] – in the event no authors are indicated in the publication (multi-authored monograph, collection of papers, document, etc.), titles of sources may be abridged.

The list of references should be formatted as a bibliographical list out of the text in alphabetic order, starting with the sources in Russian.

For texts in Russian, an additional transliterated list of references in the Latin alphabet is required.

The name of an article in a journal is divided from the name of the journal with a double slash (//). If the source is an article in a collection of papers, first write the name of the article, then, after a double slash (//), the name of the collection, and then, after a single slash (/) the name of the author or the list of the book editors.
