The author analyzes the basics and principles of these classifications, identifies their strong and weak points as well as their influence on the development of computer sciences. She also provides some recommendations on adjustments of Russian scientific classifications aiming to make them more flexible and adaptive to the faster scientific and technological development and interdisciplinary cooperation.
