Policy of the journal. The aim of the journal is a wide presentation of scientific achievements of humanitarian direction, amplification of scientific researches results in modern humanitarian knowledge. At the moment two important language capacities are combined in Russia. On the one hand, our country has unique and preserved linguistic diversity and in the world there is a real lack of it. On the other hand, Russia preserves and takes responsibility for one of the national languages without which we cannot imagine world culture and modern civilization. That is why in the journal there are a lot of articles in Russian. To preserve value-based worldview of linguistic culture this is a matter of national importance because as L.A. Verbitskaya said at Joint Meeting of the International Relations Council and Russian Language Council (May, 2015), that “Russian language problem is a problem of our great native land security”. In this regard, the most important tasks are science propaganda and also Russian language promotion as an intercultural communication language. The journal reflects the results of research work, implemented by Russian and foreign scientists of the leading scientific schools and directions.
