Rules for reference list formats.

Numbering in the reference list is carried out as citations, not in alphabetical order. In the text of the article bibliographical references are given by numbers in square brackets: [1], [2], [3], [4, 5], or [1, r. 25; 2, r. 3–4].

The list of references should be strictly justified in accordance with GOST R 7.0.5-2008.

The list of references is placed after the list of notes and is duplicated in English at the end of the article (References). The same sources, in the same order and with the same numbering, should be given in the list of references and in the References.

At the end of the source it is desirable to indicate the DOI index (digital object identifier, a unique digital identifier of the article in the CrossRef system), if any. It should not be followed by a dot.

All Russian-language sources should be listed in Russian and English (see examples below).


anonymous sources (without authorship), «gray», inaccessible literature, as well as literature of minor length (0.5-1 page), including:

  • conference abstracts, textbooks, manuals;
  • normative and legislative acts (resolutions, laws, instructions, etc.);
  • dictionaries, encyclopedias, other reference books;
  • reports, statements, memos, minutes, statistical data;
  • links to Internet sites.

Information about such sources is included in the notes and is formatted according to GOST, for example:

1 Website of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. URL: (access date: 20.02.2019).

It is not necessary to translate Russian-language notes into English.

Conference reports may be included in the list of references only if the author is listed and if they are accessible and detectable by Internet searchers - the URL and the date of reference are indicated.



Transliteration of authors' surnames.

The surnames of all authors of the article are transliterated. It is not allowed to change the order of authors in published sources. The author's surname is written first, followed by the initials, without a comma between the surname and first name and patronymic, and without a space between the first and patronymic names.

Some Russian authors may have their own well-established ways of transliteration of surnames, so to avoid misunderstandings when citing, it is advisable to familiarize yourself in advance with the spelling of authors' surnames in foreign literature (for example, by looking at the author's profile in Scopus, Web of Science, ResearcherID, ORCID, etc.). If in the original publication the authors' names have already been given in Latin alphabet, then in the reference to the article it is necessary to specify exactly this variant (regardless of the used transliteration system). If official sources (journal website, databases) do not give the authors' names in Latin alphabet, it is necessary to transliterate them independently according to the chosen system (in the journal «Philosophy. History. Education» is accepted to work in the «BSI» system). For transliteration you can use the automatic Internet service , the setting on BSI.

Please remember that the rules of transliteration for the Russian and Ukrainian (Belarusian) languages are different, so for References in these languages must first be translated into Russian and only then use the transliteration.

All authors of a publication are given at the beginning of the source description in References (irrespective of their number). If only three authors are listed in the original and et al, the references should list the authors mentioned and write et al.

Title of publication.

If the cited work has an official translation into English or an English-language version of the title (it should be searched for on the journal's Web site and in databases, including eLibrary), it should be indicated. If official sources do not give the title of the publication in Latin alphabet, then the transliteration of the title should be given (transliterate it yourself according to the «BSI» standard). One should not transliterate the title of the cited publication by oneself, as it can be regarded as a violation of copyright.

If there is an abbreviation in the original title, it is not necessary to transliterate it immediately; first, the term itself should be translated into English and, if necessary (but undesirable), the corresponding abbreviation should be entered.

Book imprints, place of publication.

The names of Russian cities should be written in transliteration, except for Moscow and St. Petersburg. These names are given in full and in English, i.e. Moscow, not Moskva and not M., Saint Petersburg, not Sankt Peterburg and not SPb.

The title of the publisher for references in References should only be transliterated (except in extremely rare cases where the publisher has a corresponding official English-language name). The use of abbreviations and other common abbreviations (in-t instead of institute, acad. instead of academy) is unacceptable.

The imprint of periodicals (journals, collections of scientific papers, conference materials). 

The name of Russian-language journals in References is given in transliteration, then a sign = is put and the English name of the journal is given (it is not necessary to translate the Russian name of the journal into English yourself, you can specify only that version of the name in English, which, as a rule, is available on the English-language site of this journal or, for example, in elibrary. If it is not available, it is possible to be limited to transliteration).

The names of foreign journals and books should be put in the original.

It is unacceptable to abbreviate (or otherwise change) the names of journals. The names of English-language journals may be given in official abbreviations. If an official abbreviation of a journal name cannot be found, it must be written in full.

The imprint of electronic resources.

After the authors and title, «available at» is written after the comma, a colon is put and the address of the link in the Internet is given. The last date of reference to the source is given in parentheses.

Language identifier.

If the publication cited in References is not originally in English (i.e., if you transliterated the title of the publication and the name of the source to make the reference in References), then at the very end of the reference, after specifying the page range in parentheses, the identifier of the language in which the original source is written should be given. For example, for references to Russian-language sources, the phrase «(in Russ)» should be used.
