Details of the provisions of the editorial ethics are available below.

The articles that come to the editorial board are subject to compulsory two-way anonymous review (see the review procedure here) and to check the Internet service for illegal borrowing.


When receiving a positive opinion of the reviewer with the author (authors), the term for the publication of the material is coordinated. As a rule, the placement of an article in a journal issue takes place no later than six months after its adoption for publication, but it is possible to increase the period in case of overflow of the editorial portfolio. When the publication time is agreed, the editors always take into account the author's well-reasoned wishes (preparation for the defense of dissertations, reports on grants, relevance of the topic of the article, etc.).


After viewing the material by the editor and proofreader, the text is sent to the author (s) for approval. After reviewing the edited text of the article, the author (authors), together with the agreed text, sends to the editorial office their consent to the publication of the article in the journal and to the posting of its electronic version on Internet sites and in information databases where the journal's materials are presented (on the sites of the Scientific Electronic Library, KyberLenininka, in the SPS bases «Garant» and «ConsultantPlus», etc.). In a conciliatory letter, the author (authors) also guarantees that he / she has exclusive rights to the article being transferred and that it is the original work of the author(s). The conciliation letter signed by the author (authors) should be sent to the editorial office either in the form of a scanned copy by e-mail, or by fax or by regular mail. (All contact details of the editorial office can be found on the «Contacts» page.) The form of the conciliation letter is sent to the author by the editorial staff together with the edited text of the article by e-mail (see the form of the conciliation letter here). In the event that a conciliation letter is not submitted to the editorial office, an article for publication is not allowed!


The editorial board does not insist on transferring exclusive copyright to the journal to the magazine and does not object to the placement of material in other publications, but asks to confirm its consent to publish the article in our journal and its copyrights by signing this conciliation letter. If, after publication in our magazine, the article is placed in other publications, it is necessary that there it was stated that the material had previously been published in a certain issue of the journal «Property Relations in the Russian Federation». If the article is published in another publication earlier than it will be printed here, then the author (authors) MUST inform the editors about this and further decide on the feasibility and possibility of publishing the material in our journal.



The material for publication is sent by the author to the editorial office at the e-mail address in the form of files created or saved in Microsoft Office 2003. The volume of the article placed in one issue of the journal is no more than 40 000 printed characters with badges (not approximately more than 20 pages of A4 format, typed through one interval font Times New Roman 14th pin). If the article has a larger volume, the author will be asked to publish it in parts in two or more issues of the magazine.


The text of the article may contain any graphic and tabular material. When creating graphic objects, it is necessary to take into account that the black and white block of the magazine is printed. Illustrations should have sequence numbers and names, their dimensions together with the signature no more than 165 x 255 mm in book format and not more than 255 x 165 mm in landscape. In the text of the article there should be a link to each figure, diagram or graph. You must specify the sources of all the data used to create the graphic.


Diagrams, diagrams, graphs are represented either as separate files in the format of the graphics editor in which they were made, or as objects embedded in the MS Word document that have kept connections to these files.

Formulas (complex) are executed only in the formula editor MathType (in MS Word 2007 or 2010 this editor is available on the «Add-ins» tab). It is necessary that all variables in them be described (deciphered), the formulas themselves are numbered and interpreted in the text of the article. All Latin and Greek letters must have a one-to-one relationship with the designated variable (for example, k and K are considered different variables), be of the same size and have the same form of spelling. The upper and lower indexes must be executed using the appropriate options of MS Word or the formula editor. In mathematical formulas, graphs, diagrams, block diagrams, it is not allowed to use a font size less than 8.

Tables should be placed in the text of the article, their width is not more than 165 mm in book format or 255 mm in landscape. For each table in the text there should be a reference, for example, «... see Table. 1» or «... (Table 1)». The word «Table» is located on the right, after it is placed the serial number of the table. Below the center of the page is its name. Each column and row of the table must have a name, it is not allowed to have empty cells (in the case of an objective lack of information, dashes are placed in the cells). If necessary, data sources are indicated below the table. When preparing tables, you should use Arial font at least 10th pin (in some cases, you can use the number 9). Pouring cells is only possible in extreme cases, when these cells are particularly discussed in the text. All the boundaries of the tables are performed in the form of single lines thickness of 0,50,75 points.


The list of references is given at the end of the article in accordance with accepted standards of bibliographic description. Footnotes should be located at the bottom of each page and have a continuous numbering throughout the article (see GOST R 7.0.5-2008).


The title of the article is shown in bold, the surname, name, patronymic, position, scientific titles of the author (authors), place of work, city of the company or institution where he works, as well as contact information of the author (one of the authors, if the article has several authors): e-mail address or business phone or fax. This information will be published in the journal (requirement of the Higher Attestation Commission).


In addition to the text of the article, the author submits to the editors the abstract of the article (no more than 500 characters) and keywords (57 words or phrases) in Russian and English. Examples of annotation and keyword list can be found here.
