Peer Review Process

All articles submitted to the editorial board undergo a mandatory double-blind reviewing (the reviewer does not know the author of the manuscript, the author of the manuscript do not know the reviewer).

Reviewing of articles is carried out by members of the editorial board, as well as non-member reviewers — leading experts in the relevant fields. The decision on the selection of a reviewer is made by editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief or publishing editor. In case of a conflict of interest a reviewer has the right to refuse for the examination of the article.

The review period is 2 weeks, but it can be extended at the reviewer’s request. As a result, the reviewer makes recommendations:

  • the article is recommended for publication as currently presented;
  • the article is recommended for publication after correction of flaws noted by the reviewer;
  • the article needs additional review by another specialist
  • the article cannot be published in the journal;

If the review contains recommendations for correcting and reworking the article, the editorial board sends the text of the review to the author with a proposal to take them into account in the preparation of a new version of the article or to argue them (partially or completely). The reworked article should be sent for review again.

The reworking of the article should not take more than 2 months from the moment of sending to the author about the need to make changes. After this time, the author is notified of the removal of the manuscript from the consideration. If the author refuses to correct the article, he or she should inform the editorial board about it in written form.

Articles not recommended for publication are not accepted for reconsideration.

The existence of a positive review is not a sufficient basis for the publication of the article. The final decision on publication is taken by the editorial board. In any conflict situations, the decision is made by the editor-in-chief.

After the editorial board accepts the decision to admit the article for publication, the editorial office informs the author about it and indicates the time frame within which the article may be published.

The reviews are kept in the editorial office of the journal for 5 years. In case of corresponding request, the editorial boards also send a copy of the review to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

The journal publish issues quarterly, 4 issues per year.
