Peer Review Process

1. The journal reviews all submitted to editor’s office materials that correspond to its subject matter to make a peer-review.

2. All reviewers are acknowledged experts in themes of materials to be reviewed and have publications on the themes of the reviewed paper during previous 3 years.

3. An authorized person submits manuscript to reviewer in hard copy. The author does not propose a potential reviewer.

4. Manuscript is submitted to the reviewer responsible for a specific subdivision of the journal. A paper is assessed according to criteria: relevance of research, novelty of the conducted research, matching content and originality level of the paper, contribution to the development of corresponding scientific areas, practical application in industry and economy.

5.Type of review is unilateral and anonymous (“blind”). Author does not know about manuscript reviewer. As a rule, review length constitutes 1 or 2 pages A4 format.

6. A review is submitted to the Editor in Chief deputy (responsible for publication), who informs author/authors about reviews. In case of positive review, the paper is accepted for publication and the process of its editorial processing, arranging details and integration into issue.

In this case, the author takes paper, makes improvements, additions, explanations, and processes of review and manuscript submission are repeated until the manuscript is either accepted for publication or finally rejected.

8. If manuscript receives a negative review those of inaccurate information violating ethical standards of scientific publications, it is not accepted for publication.

9. Reviews are kept within publishers and in editor’s office of the journal during 5 years.

10. Editor’s office of the journal sends review copies to the author of submitted manuscripts or reasonable rejections, and takes responsibility to send review copies to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation upon request.

11. Publisher provides persistent storage of the published scientific articles, their availability to the authors upon request.

12. Publisher provides the established order legal deposit peer-reviewed scientific publications in the Information Telegraph Agency of Russia (ITAR-TASS), the Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications, the National Library of the Udmurt Republic.
