Abstract: In Encyclopedia of Modern Ukraine, in articles about scientists there is a tendency to cover other activities, in which they have manifested themselves in addition to scien­ce. In this regard, the study traces the main problems that arise in the preparation of an article information when a person is submitting in science as well as in other activities (social activity, policy, art, literature, sports, etc.). Biographical information in articles about scientists depends on their implementation level in several areas of life.
