Foresight-Russia now in English
The first two English-language issues of Foresight-Russia are published. The English version will be issued in electronic format quarterly in sync with the Russian.
From the first issues, Foresight-Russia has published articles by world-class researchers, and today has a pool of authors who are internationally renowned scholars in the fields covered by the title. These specialists’ contributions cover on average about 40% of the total number of articles.
The high quality of Foresight-Russia’s content is confirmed by the high rankings of its articles in prestigious Russian and international citation indexes. For several years, the title has ranked first in the categories ‘Sociology of Science’ and ‘Organisation and Management’, and fifth in ‘Economics.’ The Russian version of Foresight-Russia is already included in leading international databases such as Scopus, SSRN, RePEc, EBSCO, and others.
Articles in English issues duplicate those in the Russian edition, and are translated, edited and proofread by native speakers. Both editions preserve the same pagination to avoid a loss of references to the journal’s publications when citing.
Leonid Gokhberg, Editor-in-Chief, Foresight-Russia:
In entering the international information space, dominated for many years by such influential journals with similar topical coverage as Research Policy, Foresight (UK), Technological Forecasting and Social Change, and Futures, Foresight-Russia will certainly try to make a unique contribution to the developing studies of science, technology and innovation. Naturally, this will mean finding answers to more complex tasks: we are ready to embrace such challenges. The title enlarges its thematic coverage by analysing not only promising technological trends and developments, but also their expected complex social andcultural implications. Such a scope potentially increases the coverage of authors and readers, and thus Foresight-Russia may provide more innovative ideas and original research.
Ozcan Saritas, Editor, Foresight (UK):
Publishing in English is a new beginning for Foresight-Russia — a well-established research journal on futures studies and innovation policy. Its high quality content from Russia and beyond can now be followed and appreciated by the whole world. In this new format, the journal will immensely enhance its capacity to be a forum for scholarly scientific discussion on the key areas of its focus.
