Human society... If we examine it a bit distantly, abstracting from the inextricable ties between the observer and the community of people, than in front of the researcher the society appears in all its multifaceted diversity and contradictory glory - as the center of creation, evolution and regression, kindness, generosity and aggression, genius and villainy, indissolubility and conflict opposition of the subjective and collective, recognition and overthrow of moral principles and aesthetic priorities, social progress and simultaneous depletion of biological habitat... Perhaps there is no (and can’t be) other such multifactorial, systematic and fragmented at the same time, unpredictable and mysterious object of research as the modern mankind.

An intellect was given to a man – to learn from own experience. Man is endowed with originative imagination to create, invent ways of his continuous development. But at the same time, the person has an active psyche caused by a twofold combination of biological and social nature of the individual. This is expressed in a systematic inconsistency, irrationality and sometimes in an obvious asociality of behavior. At the same time the man acts as an object of its own evolutionary efforts, the creator of progress and ruthless destroyer of historically formed values. A person has to acts as the author of innovative concepts, a teacher and a student. At the same time he has to practically implement his plans and reap positive or negative fruits of his labor. History shows that all of this is extremely difficult to implement with a consistently progressive result. But we don’t have another way. Therefore, humanity is condemned to study itself, summarize the experience of historical observations, learn from them, experiment and to try to be wise...

Mission of the journal "GISAP: Sociological, Political and Military Sciences" is to be one of alternative and open ways of publication of author's studies in the field of Sociological, Political and Military Sciences. It is also a source of distribution of the advanced knowledge about social and political organization of human societies, localization and settlement of the related conflicts.

The journal is focused on publication of original creative studies of scientists from around the world based on innovative and progressive approaches of authors to problems under study. In this context "GISAP: Sociological, Political and Military Sciences" seeks for the greatest possible promotion of the progress of Sociology, Political and Military sciences and the related public knowledge.

Materials with expert confirmation of high scientific quality and creative originality are published in the journal. This circumstance predetermines our intention to publish "live" materials with comprehensive author's ideas and specifics of self-expression. We publish reports capable to enrich the reader's scientific outlook with new approaches, concepts, thoughts and views on various matters of Sociology, Political and Military sciences.

The journal is absolutely democratic and open for social interaction. During the selection of materials for publication we don't use formal qualification-based requirements or other restrictive factors. Works of a talented student and a prominent scientist can be both published in the journal. The main selection criteria: the author's originality, novelty, literacy and scientific reasonability (together it all characterizes the "scientific value" of the report).

Original studies of representatives of various countries and cultures can be published in the magazine. At the same time to ensure availability of reports for representatives of the international scientific community (where English is a traditional mechanism of international communication) English is set as the dominating language of presentation of reports.

Main materials can be published in the journal in other widespread (acknowledged as widespread) languages of international communication and also in other languages providing their understanding for a wide range of persons. In such cases materials must be accompanied by extended summaries (abstracts) in English.

The International Academy of Science and Higher Education and the open international expert community of the GISAP project sincerely hope that the journal "GISAP: Sociological, Political and Military Sciences" (taking into account the declared principles of its publication) will promote the development of related branches of science, mutual enrichment of national scientific schools of various countries with knowledge and experience, international ties and scientific cooperation in Sociology, Political and Military sciences.
