The structure of the journal “Horizon. Studies in Phenomenology”:

The first section — “Research” — contains original articles. The journal only publishes original studies and articles. This section includes papers written in Russian, English, German and French (without translation). Authors submitting their texts in languages other than Russian (unless they are native speakers) are asked to have them corrected by a native-speaker.

The second section — “Translations and Commentaries” — presents extracts from classical texts translated into Russian as well as translations of texts written by contemporary scholars in phenomenology and related fields. Publication of translations is conditional on having completed the necessary copyright formalities; consent of copyright holders is required. Translations are published in “Horizon. Studies in Phenomenology” only if copyright holders’ permission is obtained. Texts are usually followed by exegetic comments. The goal of this section is to discuss archival documents unfamiliar to most readers and present studies and essays by renowned philosophers and scientists.

The third section — “Discussions” — is composed of reports on recent events related to phenomenology which took place in Russia or abroad. It also includes polemics, interviews and reports on conferences. These reviews are meant to be not only purely informational, but analytical as well. The objective of this section is to intensify communication between contemporary phenomenologists and provide a space for discussions on relevant topics.

The fourth section — “Book reviews” — comprises comments or critical opinions on books and monographs on phenomenological themes published within the last 15 years. This section is intended to present noteworthy books, in accordance with the general goal of the journal, which is to cooperate on creating a unified field of thought, communication and exchange of new ideas.

The fifth section — “Events” — contains announcements of forthcoming events such as conferences, seminars, monographs, thesis defenses etc. and reference to web sources and reference materials.


When editing special issues of the journal the Editorial Board reserves the right to change the structure of the journal (e. g. to reduce the number of sections) and to invite co-editors for preparing a thematic issue.
