Articles published in the journal are indexed in international abstract and full-text databases:
- Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) based on the Scientific Electronic Library eLibrary.ru
- Google Scholar
- Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory
The journal is registered with the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor): Mass media registration certificate EL No. FS 77 — 76345; Date of registration: 02.08.2019
The World Wide Web provides new opportunities not only for the search for scientific information, but also for the activities of publishers. One of the main indicators of the effectiveness of this search is the DOI identifier, which has become widespread since the end of the last and the beginning of this century.
DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is the digital ID of the document. Due to the fact that the Internet is a place for placing and storing information, some of which is not stored for a long time, and the other, on the contrary, must be stored for a long time with the preservation of archives, reliable methods for searching for the information that is currently needed are an important point. DOI acts as a hyperlink that always helps you find the right document, even if the site where it was previously located has subsequently changed. Later, DOI began to be used for citing documents, counting the number of citations, creating cross-references, anti-plagiarism, participation in evaluating the effectiveness of scientific institutions and publishing houses. DOI corporations develop standards, and special registration agencies deal with the registration of unique DOIs pointing to a specific document. They are classified according to subject matter. These can be different types of documents: audio, video, Internet resources, etc., different languages and publishers. For example, scientific articles, monographs, conference proceedings, dissertations are registered by CrossRef. Almost all leading scientific journals of the world cooperate with this firm.
The value of the DOI index for the author of the article
Thanks to this index, searching for scientific information on the Internet has become easier and more efficient. Each edition, the journal places on its web pages on the Internet, both current and archival issues and materials. Thus, in the public domain, you can see summaries that include the title of the article, last name, first name, patronymic of the author, abstract and keywords, place of work, as well as the imprint of published articles (name of the journal, year of publication, volume, number, page). This necessary information allows you to instantly find the desired article in the normal structure of the site of the publication. In a different way, it looks like searching by keywords, for example, in Google or Yandex. It displays a lot of unnecessary information and articles that are far from scientific periodicals. In order to avoid this, scientists use thematic databases.
Assignment of DOI numbers
The DOI structure consists of three components: a directory, a prefix, and a suffix. The directory, or DOI directory, is set by the DOI corporation. The prefix is assigned to publishers. And even if the publisher has changed ownership, the DOI will remain the same, because the prefix always indicates who published the article, not the owner of the journal. The suffix is assigned to the publication by the publisher and is unique within the prefix. There are no rules that would rigidly determine the location of the DOI index on the article page. Therefore, they indicate it in different places: sometimes in the upper corner, sometimes in the lower one, sometimes before the summary, sometimes after, and sometimes even found in footnotes. For readers, the DOI index serves as an effective means of finding the right articles in periodicals. This is a more reliable search method than a bibliographic reference because the code is recognized without error. Thanks to the DOI index, the number of citations of published works increases. Therefore, it is desirable to place articles in journals with this code, indexed in the RSCI, Scopus, Web of Science and other well-known databases that provide citation indexing and references. DOI helps to significantly reduce link loss. All this together makes it possible to understand why the world community no longer recognizes electronic articles that do not have a DOI index. Without it, the publication does not have sufficient stability on the Internet, is subject to change, up to disappearance. And this, in turn, negatively affects the citation index. which provides indexing of citation and accounting for references. DOI helps to significantly reduce link loss.

How to get DOI for an article and how to find out the DOI of an article?
The DOI number can be assigned to all published materials, both as a whole and for individual parts and chapters, which can sometimes be useful in collective authorship. After all, the assignment of DOI means inclusion in the abstract bases of Scopus and Web of Science. It is expected that publications in HAC journals indexed in the RSCI system will also have DOI indices. It is important to understand that this index does not reflect the quality of the article and the level of publication, it is just a search criterion. The journal can publish articles with or without a DOI index. Therefore, this issue must be resolved with the journal before submitting the article for publication, since not all publishers offer this service. In order to find an article by DOI number, you must first type, as CrossRef advises, the doi directory, which will take you to the landing page. The web page of the article is indicated here, indicating the title, author, place of work, imprint, summary and links to the full text of the publication. The conditions for opening this link are determined by the publisher. Obtaining DOI for an article is carried out for a small, as a rule, fee, which is set by the publisher. Information about the DOI of a published article is located on the publications page on the journal’s website, as well as in the publication itself. You can also use crossref.org to find the DOI of your article.. Since 2017, the DOI Index has become an active part of our publishing practice, allowing scientists to actively participate in the exchange of information with leading journals and experts around the world. In other words, the authors have a wonderful opportunity to take the publication of a scientific article to a higher level.
