We are not only interested in original papers that have not
yet been published anywhere. We are also happy to re-publish papers that might
have already been printed in Russian or other languages before, but that are,
so far, not freely available, in Russian language, on the WWW. In the case that
a paper has been published in a Russian printed edition (journal, collected
volume) or non-Russian outlet before, authors will have to provide an explicit
permission, by the editors of the periodical, website or book where the article
originally appeared, for re-publication as a Russian-language PDF file in our

available in Russian, on the WWW.
