Presentations and lectures delivered at more than 150 international congresses, conferences, symposia and semi-nars (Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Den-mark, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan), membership in scientific and program committees of many international symposia.
Two bases – Thomson Reuters ISI and Google Scholar – differ names Rushchitsky and Rushchitskii and propose (thinking Rushchitsky and Rushchitskii as two different persons) two different lists of publications. Scopus gives the united list for both names, but for the option Rushchitsk* only. Besides that, ISI and Scopus propose two dif-ferent lists: for the having of electronic copies publications and for the publications included into the data base without the electronic copies (books, some articles, abstracts and so on).
