value of scholarly research

«Ценность» как требование к качеству современного политического исследования (Часть первая)

The article is the first part of the study aiming at specifying expediency of using the “scholarly research value” criterion while assessing political science dissertations and other papers. The author analyzes reasons why this criterion is of high interest among Russian scholars and experts nowadays. Key problems of filling the notions “value” and “evaluation” with the meaning corresponding to actual goals of political science dissertations, monographs, and articles’ analysis are pinpointed.
