Reviewing is a mandatory procedure for articles published in the journal. When submitting a manuscript to the editorial Board of the journal, it is first reviewed and checked for compliance with the subject and formal requirements of the journal. In case of non-compliance with the subject of the manuscript is not accepted for consideration, the author is notified of this.
The publication reviews all incoming materials that correspond to the subject of the journal for the purpose of their expert evaluation.
The editorial Board sends the authors reviews of the received materials in electronic form.
In case of a positive review and recommendation of the manuscript for publication, the manuscript is included in the portfolio of accepted texts for publication, from which the next issue is formed, the author is notified accordingly. Manuscripts that are:
1. Approved by reviewers and
2. Prepared by the authors in full compliance with the requirements of the journal (do not require literary editing, and are correctly formatted) are approved for publication.
In case of negative expert evaluation, the manuscript is sent to the author with a proposal to take into account the comments when preparing a new version of the article, or, if it is impossible to finalize it, it is rejected. The changes made by the author must be made to the electronic version of the text and returned to the editor. After completion, the manuscript is again sent for scientific review to the same reviewers. In case of a positive review and recommendation of the manuscript for publication, the manuscript is included in the portfolio of accepted texts. In case of repeated negative review, the manuscript is finally rejected, and the author is notified of this.
If the manuscript is rejected, a reasoned refusal to publish is sent to the author. Failure to comply with the rules for publishing materials may serve as a reason for rejecting the manuscript without a detailed review, with justification for refusal.
Manuscripts rejected based on the review results are not reviewed again. Other articles by the authors of such manuscripts are accepted for consideration in the usual manner.
Absolute grounds for rejection of the manuscript with the conclusion "do Not allow the article of this author to be considered in the future" and inclusion of the authors in the Stop list of the journal are:
1. Violation of the norms of scientific citation, or plagiarism,
2. Submission of a manuscript previously published in another publication.
Internal and external reviewers are involved in reviewing published materials. All reviewers are recognized experts on the subject of peer-reviewed materials and have published on the subject of the reviewed article within the last 3 years. The names of reviewers are not disclosed to the authors. In controversial cases, the manuscript is sent for additional anonymous review. Articles are approved for publication by the editorial Board. The texts of reviews are stored in the publishing house for five years.
When the editorial Board receives a request to send a copy of reviews to the Ministry of science and higher education The Russian Federation and the expert Council of the Ministry of education and science of the Russian Federation, the relevant information is sent to the Ministry.
The editorial Board gets acquainted with the texts of all letters, but does not enter into correspondence on issues related to a particular publication.
