Proceedings of the Internation Conference on "Humanities and Social Sciences: Novations, Problems, Prospects" (HSSNPP 2019)

The International Conference Humanities and Social Sciences: Novations, Problems, Prospects (HSSNPP 2019) was held at Novosibirsk State Technical University, Novosibirsk, Russia on 5–6 March 2019. HSSNPP 2019 is a scientific forum for researchers and students to exchange ideas in the fields of education, sociology, philology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, and economics.

The aim of HSSNPP 2019 is to create a common platform for scholars, educators and students to give them opportunity to present and discuss their research results, share new ideas and expand their academic network. The conference program was extremely rich. The conference offered more than one hundred presentations by researchers who work in social sciences and humanities. These two days became the time of intense learning and surely gave all the participants the impetus to further research.

The HSSNPP 2019 proceedings include comprehensive and valuable papers on topical issues of education, philology, linguistics, psychology, sociology, economics and philosophy. The papers were carefully selected by the conference organizers to present the current state, issues and prospects of social sciences and humanities. We hope that this volume will deliver to the readers not only an overview of the latest research results on social sciences and humanities, but also provide an opportunity to learn more about the Russian academic community of scholars and educators.

We would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to all the participants as well as the organizers of HSSNPP 2019 who helped in holding the conference on March 5–6. Moreover, we would like to thank the reviewers and editors for their thoughtful work and invaluable contribution to preparing of the HSSNPP 2019 proceedings.
