The editor–in-chief of the journal Alexander Lukin stressed that "Russian Sinology" is not only a scientific journal: "Usually a good journal is a socio-political phenomenon. Now we are moving away from the Western model of science, where we need to chase indicators, constantly dial some numbers. Scientometrics is, of course, important, but our journal will also have elements of journalism."

Igor Denisov, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the journal, described the features of the editorial policy and the target audience of the journal: "We are interested in the high quality of the selection of material that must meet the highest standards of academic science. And at the same time, it is important for us to be interesting to the general public."
