Ural Federal University: The University Journals Tax Reform and R-Economy Were Included in the Scopus Database

The economic journals Tax Reform and R-Economy of Ural Federal University have been included in the authoritative Scopus database.

R-Economy is an online journal dedicated to the publication of high-quality research in the field of regional economics and urbanism. It has been published since 2015. It was created in collaboration with the Institute of Economics of the Urals Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The journal presents original theoretical and empirical materials devoted to a wide range of issues related to transformations in regional socio-economic systems. Particular attention in the publication is paid to the processes of integration and fragmentation of regional socio-economic systems in postsocialist, developing economies and BRICS countries, as well as the growing role of cities as centers of modern socio-economic and political activity.

“This is a very important achievement for us, as well as confirmation of the global recognition of our economists’ research results. The magazine offers interesting and high quality content. We actively attract authors from Russia, Italy, China, Serbia, Germany, South Korea, Japan, Poland, Kazakhstan, Ireland. We get an opportunity to compare methods and approaches to the analysis of regional problems, which are used by authors from different countries, representatives of different research schools. Personally, this is important to me because working in the journal is a very big part of my life and a big job for all the members of my team,” says Irina Turgel, editor of R-Economy, doctor of economics, professor, director of the School of Economics and Management at the UrFU Institute of Economics and Management.

According to Irina Turgel, the journal’s executive editors Dmitry Gladyrev and Valentina Derbeneva contributed greatly to this success.

“The role of the journal’s co-founder, the Institute of Economics of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, should also be noted. Getting into Scopus means that the strategic goal we chose initially was the right one,” concludes the editor.

In turn, the journal Tax Reform focuses on the study of social, economic and other results of tax reforms, on the analysis of the expected effects of various tax transformations. The publication publishes articles and materials related to the problems of managing tax reforms. In addition, a number of issues related to the historical practice of tax reforms, illegal tax prevention, etc. are observed. The journal’s mission is to promote a comprehensive study of tax reform and the effects of tax system reorganization, leading to improved quality and credibility of tax research.

“We have come a long way to this success, since 2015. Our share of foreign authors is already more than 50%. I think this played a big role in our success. The international universality of the subject matter also played its role. Taxes and tax reforms are topical for all countries, they are out of politics and are universally convertible between different countries. It is also important that the magazine is published in English,” notes professor Igor Maiburov, editor of Tax Reform magazine.
