Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
Determination of strategic directions for development of Russian journals included in the international database Web of Science requires improvement of methods for assessing their level. The article proposes an approach, the essence of which is determined by the use of bibliometric analysis methods for a comprehensive assessment of the state of Russian economic journals, based on the indicators obtained from both international and national citation systems. Our data sources include indices that form the core of Web of Science and the Russian Science Citation Index. We assess the state of 18 Russian economic journals, including the journal Economic and Social Changes: Facts, Trends, Forecast issued by Vologda Research Center of RAS. We summarize the experience of this journal in improving its international visibility. We define the factors that impede the integration of Russian journals into the world scientific and information space and outline strategic tasks that should be addressed so that the journals’ position in the international space could be improved. The results obtained can be used by scientific organizations and editors to make decisions on the development of periodicals. The conclusions of our study are important for discussing the problem related to choosing approaches and criteria for evaluating scientific journals
