The paper delves into problems of academic discourse in contemporary Russian sociological community. One of the articles presented in SOCIS is analyzed as the case. Among the problems are tendentious interpretations of texts by other sociologists, unfair citing and lack of referencing Russian sociologists who work in the same field. The main causes of these problems are often due to either explicit or implicit “ideological bias” among researchers, “egoistic behavior” strategies, insufficient sociological education and continued “encapsulation” of the Russian sociological community in relation to world sociology.
