House Style Guide

House Style Guide (HSG) is a manual of style and format used by the publisher when working on articles to be published in the English language. It is based on the Chicago Manual of Style, which has become a worldwide standard of style in publishing. Our HSG is an instruction for publisher's staff and may be somewhat confusing to outside users. Nevertheless, before working on author's proofs, you may wish to familiarize yourself with this document, because we usually disregard changes that contradict the HSG. If you plan to submit a manuscript in English or submit a manuscript in Russian with your own translation, please take into account the rules described in the HSG.
