English abstract

This paper considers the publishing behavior of Ukrainian researchers in Humanities in respect to choosing the language of publication. The comparative analysis based on Web of Science data is performed on two different levels. On one hand, four Eastern European countries are considered: Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. On the other hand, three humanitarian disciplines are covered for each country: Philosophy, History and Literature. The results show that Ukrainian scholars in the Humanities choose the language for their publications similarly to their colleagues from other Eastern European countries: while English is used significantly, the language spectrum is diverse.
