The decisive factors of the manuscripts’ selection are their compliance with the journal’s profile, relevance and validity of scientific research suggested for publication and adherence to the scientific ethical principles.
All the materials submitted for publication in the journal are reviewed by members of the journal’s editorial staff and editorial council or by invited experts. The reviewers are recognized experts, whose most recent publications in the relevant field have appeared during the last three years. The reviews are kept in the editorial office for five years.
If the review is negative, the article is not published. Copies of negative reviews or substantiated refusals are sent to authors. The journal’s editorial staff submits the copies of the reviews to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation if the editorial office receives an inquiry to that effect.
