**Articles: * Limits and Strategies for the Internationalization of Russian Ecomic Science: Sociological Interpretation of Bibliometric Data, Olessia Kirtchik (in English). In the current context of the globalization of science, excellence is most often associated with internationalization and assessed through high-impact international publications. Analysis of publications in ecomics covered by Web of Science demonstrates that the very repertoire of international publication strategies of Russian authors is determined by the transnational system of communication in ecomics. Ecomics papers from peripheral nations are essentially assigned to regional or area studies periodicals, which do t belong to the core of the discipline. Publication in top ecomics journals requires a specific international competency usually obtained through doctoral training at Anglo-American PhD programs and generally implies a delocalization of research objects and questions. * The Transformation of the Organizational and Professional Context of the Public Opinion Survey Industry in Russia: Macro- and Microanalysis, Roman Abramov (in Russian).

This article describes central discursive patterns of self-identification and self-representation among the contemporary Armenian intelligentsia. It reveals both continuities and disruptions with the Russian and Armenian intelligentsia of prerevolutionary, Soviet, and post-Soviet times, which leads to new conclusions about the group's role in ongoing projects of nation- and state-building. The Armenian intelligentsia exists as a set of variations on an imagined cultural and social construct that needs constant fine-tuning. The continuous discussion about identification, forms of representation and cultural manifestation, and social roles of the intelligentsia is an important part of the ongoing process of reconciliation and negotiation of the boundaries between old and new identities, social structures, hierarchies, behavioral codes, and systems of values in the modernized and globalized Armenian society. **Review essay: History Journals in the United States: Intellectual Transformations of the Past Decade, Natalia Potapova (in Russian). History journals are important institutions that control historical kwledge and organize the professional community. This review examines the publishing practices of three leading American journals that embody different models of publishing policies, different forms of control over the distribution of intellectual influence, and different systems of exchanging ideas. The review presents main intellectual trends over the past ten years: a retreat from cultural history and a resurgence of social history as well as global and transnational history. Analysis of the journals demonstrates their openness to the problems of the modern world, responses to challenges of the time, and historians' involvement in public life. It is possible to talk about a practical turn in modern historiography.
