Our unit is responsible for developing the concept and structure of the HSE corporate website, and for supporting it. We develop the university website by maintaining and creating new sections, as well as launching webpages for departments, educational programmes, conferences, courses, and special projects. We publish news and announcements on the main page, teach staff members how to edit websites, and maintain several databases.

Work on the website involves not only our unit, but also receives critical support from our colleagues in other departments.
News and announcements on the main page
The Public Relations Unit is the main supplier of news for the university website’s homepage. Without its contributions, the website wouldn’t be as exciting. If your department has news to share, don’t forget to let our colleagues know. We’ll help publish an announcement of your event.
In order to publish an announcement on the main page, please first publish an announcement on your department’s webpage and send a link to it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send an Microsoft Word file with the text of the announcement to this address.
Each staff member (whether a renowned professor, manager, accountant or programmer) has a personal page on the HSE website. As you look at the personal page, you can learn a researcher’s interests, subjects taught by a professor, or the responsibilities of an administrative staff member. The Russian version of the page is created automatically after an employee is hired and HR department processes all relevant documents. The English version is activated by the website editors.
Database of publications
We maintain a database of academic publications on the HSE website. These are the publications shown on your personal pages, included in reports, etc.
Database of courses
We provide technical support for the database of courses on the HSE website, although we take no responsibility for the course descriptions. All the information is uploaded automatically from the curricula and the ASAV comprehensive academic information system. The English name of the course reflected in the schedule is also uploaded from ASAV.
Exception: information on curricula authors and files with course curricula are downloaded to the database of courses by designated staff members in departments. It is essential that course information is completed in full.
Department and educational programme websites
We work on the websites of departments, programmes, events and projects together with staff members from these departments.
Each department automatically receives a website in Russian after it is registered in the administrative system. Websites are also opened for educational programmes, but only after they appear in the ASAV system (otherwise, the curricula and schedule won’t be reflected).
We can help you create an English version of your department or laboratory website. To create an English version, you must prepare the contents for your website. To create an English-language website for your department, please contact Maria Besova at email@example.com.
As long as you have contents for a site, we can help you create websites for workshops, short-term schools and other events. We do not activate empty websites (stating ‘Under construction’).
We complete the website initially and then only provide technical support. Keeping the website up to date is the responsibility of the department for which the website has been created.
English version of the HSE website
The English-language website of the Higher School of Economics was ranked first among websites of Russian universities by the Russian International Affairs Council in 2015.
We translate the news for the website’s main page, and we can also help translate the key information for a department’s website (‘About’, ‘Research’ and other sections that don’t need to be updated often). Departments are responsible for translating their news, announcements and other texts. We also publish announcements of English-language events in the main feed and activate English versions of personal pages.
We make sure to activate English versions for those departments that are active internationally and/or work with international organizations, students and professors, as well as for the programmes that offer instruction in English. In other cases, an English version is activated only if the department is ready to regularly update it themselves.
Figures & Facts section
Something is always changing at HSE: new programmes are being launched, research is being carried out, and new departments are appearing. The HSE Analytical Centre helps us prepare statistical information about university life.
We provide HSE lecturers with rights to use the anti-plagiarism system to check student papers written in Russian. To be granted access, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can authorize you to complete the following online reports:
- Report on the activities of Research & Study and Project & Study laboratories (reporting to the Academic Development Office);
- Report by a member of the Young Faculty Development Programme (reporting to the Academic Development Office).
We can tell you how to upload the information, but can’t tell you what specifically should be in the report. Staff members from the relevant departments can help you with this.
To obtain access to the report, contact us at email@example.com.
Please indicate what report you are responsible for. Some reports are submitted simultaneously, and it’s difficult to understand what report you may be referring to.
New features on the website
The website is developed by the Online Media Development and Support Unit. If you have a reasonable need for a new feature, we are happy to work with you. Before the discussion, please try to summarize your key requirements and consider what systems inside the university they might impact.
If you have read all of the above and still cannot find an answer to your question, please contact Dmitry Koptyubenko, Director for Online Media.
