The ability to read and understand scientific information is necessary for the growth of a scientific society. Moreover, the reasons why they want to study different scientific fields are diverse. The validity and reliability of the Science Motivation Scale in Russia were investigated for this study. The first step was to determine whether or not the scale items used in the study were linguistically valid. Then, an exploratory factor analysis of the data collected from 667 college students was conducted. The next step was to conduct a confirmatory factor analysis. As a direct result, research was conducted on the correctness and reliability of SMS in the Russian context. According to the research results, thirty components and five contributing variables were found. It was suggested that future researchers conduct studies on the validity and reliability of SMS with many different populations.
