Science reacted to the coronavirus epidemic in the same way as whole of society, which perceived it as a real threat to its normal functioning, and even to its existence in general. Psychological science, of course, was not an exception to the general rule. And although we are not talking about renaming the Institute of Psychology of the Russian Academy of Sciences into the Institute of Psychological Mechanisms (Factors, Consequences, etc.) of the Coronavirus Pandemic, it influenced the topics studied at the Institute, the scope of which turned out to be significantly expanded and modified. In line with this trend, the authors conducted a second survey of psychologists who had published articles in the journals “Voprosy Psychologii” and “Psykchologicheckii Zhurnal”, indexed in the Web of Science and Scopus, in 2014–2020. These psychologists were termed as experts on the socio-psychological context of the epidemic, which allowed to accord the status of an expert survey to the study. Primary attention given to the socio-psychological context and sampling professional psychologists define the main difference between the survey conducted by the authors and numerous recent studies of the coronavirus epidemic. The expert survey covered 119 respondents representing various branches of psychological science. The questionnaire included 21 questions (listed in the text of the article). The survey was conducted in June 2020, and its main task was to identify the opinions of respondents about the socio-psychological context (causes, consequences, etc.) of the coronavirus epidemic. The authors believe that the answers of the respondents to both closed and open questions of the questionnaire may be of interest to the readers of the Journal.
