Guidelines for the Submission of Articles to “Creative Innovations – Innovative Creations” (“The Scientific Bulletin of Pyatigorsk State Linguistic University”)

Pyatigorsk State Linguistic University (Pyatigorsk, Russia) is glad to announce the launch of its International Scientific Bulletin “Creative Innovations – Innovative Creations”.

We invite articles on a wide range of humanities including linguistics and literary criticism, pedagogical sciences, psychology, philosophy and ethnic culture studies, economics, political and social sciences, history, management and law. Papers may be written in English (preferably), German, French, Spanish or Italian. Papers in other languages may be accepted by special arrangement with the editorial staff.

Our journal will be especially interested in papers dealing with the language from a cognitive perspective, as well as in articles devoted to ethno-cultural and ethno-social issues.

Creative Innovations – Innovative Creations is planning to attract a wide and diverse international readership. When preparing documents for submission, please consider the following factors:
  • cultures, educational backgrounds, and fields of study vary greatly among readers;
  • English may not be the first language of many people who will still be interested in the problems you address in your article;
  • some readers may not be a part of academia.
The editors understand that nearly all contributors are skilled writers, but still attention to the following guidelines will help the Creative Innovations – Innovative Creations staff spend less time editing your work and ensure that your message is communicated clearly to readers.
