In the article the reasons to develop metrics alternative to conventional scientometric and bibliometric indicators for assessing the scientific work of the scientist or whole organization are analyzed. Altmetrics is an young discipline (started in 2010), the subject of which is the creation and study of new metrics (alternative metrics) to assess the scientific product (articles, books, presentations, speeches and discussions on the topic of scientific research, computer software, etc.) within the virtual space (the number of discussions in social networks, downloads and views in the scientific repositories and bibliographic managers, and others.) The altmetrics tools are observed. And the positive aspects of the altmetrics and criticisms expressed toward them are considered.
The article assesses the discriminatory content posted on the website "The World of Statistics" that encroaches on Russian identity in the field of statistics. Being only an episode of the virtual negative information impact on professional Internet users, this action cannot but causes regret. "The World of Statistics" is not only a hyperbolized concept of characterizing a wide arsenal of tools and databases used in the process of cognition of the phenomena of the objective world, but also a geographical concept. International statistics should be out of politics. Attempts to exclude individual countries or groups of countries from international statistical space or context are counterproductive. Isolationist policy imposed against Russia in various fields by the international opponents, does not make the world safer and more sustainable, does not contribute to progress in achieving the Millennium development goals contained in the Millennium Declaration of the United Nations.

Soviet electoral statistics of the 1920s provides a wealth of material for studying political as well as social developments in Russia, including the data on the age, education, property, social composition of voters and deputies of councils and congresses at all levels. This paper refers to the archive material introduced into scientific use for the first time to reconstruct the rise and development of the electoral statistics in the RSFSR in the 1920s as reflecting the main stages in establishing the election machinery and policy fluctuation in Soviet Russia within the timeframe. Institutional and organizational uncertainty in the first half of the 1920s had a negative impact on the completeness and reliability of the information submitted to the NKVD by local executive committees. The concentration of all functions for the organization and management of the election campaign in the Central Election Commission of the Presidium of the Central Executive Committee in 1926 unified and formalized the data collection, improved the registration of voters, increased the accuracy and coverage of the electoral statistics. The variability of the parameters used in the electoral statistics during the 1920s to determine the socioeconomic status of the population seriously complicates their analysis, often making the indicators incomparable.

This article focuses on the causes of inflation emergence in Russia and the factors causing its growth and decline. The inflationary process in Russia can have a dual effect, as in any other country. If inflation grows without any control then it can lead to economic chaos. On the other hand, if the inflation is under control, it may intensify the economic state of the market. Every country uses its own methods of money circulation regulation. Russia also uses special methods to influence the inflationary process at the current moment. These methods are based on the instruments of monetary policy.
The socio-economic information published by the statistical and other authorities is a basic source of information available for a quantitative analysis and forecasting. To use this information correctly it is necessary to know the methodology, techniques applied to calculating indicators and data aggregation, as well as the methods for checking the results obtained. The paper discusses various methods allowing better assessments and more reliable conclusions such as: the verification of hypothesis on the other statistics, the use of alternative models for the same data set, the combination of different data analysis, including historical methods, artificial index computation etc. An important task in analytics and forecasting is to assess accuracy of the initial information, accumulation of errors occurred in data processing, and, therefore, accuracy of assessments obtained. The paper also discusses the issues of application of expert evaluation methods and qualitative characteristics processing techniques.
