Single-blind peer review: Reviewers are aware of the identity of the authors, but authors are unaware of the identity of reviewers. There are at least three or more reviewers for the total number of scientific articles in each issue.
The manuscript submission and peer-review process is broken down into the following 8 steps:
1) The author submits a manuscript.
2) The Editor-in-Chief or Guest Editor is assigned based on the manuscript category.
3) The Editor-in-Chief or Guest Editor assigns Reviewers to the manuscript.
4) The Reviewers review the manuscript.
5) If the review contains recommendations for improving and finalizing the article, the executive secretary sends to the author the review text with the suggestion to consider the recommendations in preparing a new article version or to refute them with reason. The recycled paper is sent for review repeatedly.
6) An article is deemed accepted for publication with not only positive reviews, but also the negative ones if the article publication is important for publishing a review of it as an independent study that refutes the fundamental misconceptions of the author. An order and priority of article publication is determined by the volume of published materials and a list of sections in each issue.
7) The Editor-in-Chief and other members of the editorial board makes a decision based on the reviews.
8) The Publishing Editor sends the decision letter to the author by email.
The reviewers are notified that the manuscripts sent to them are the intellectual property of the authors and refer to the confidental data. The reviewers are not allowed to make copies of articles for their needs. A review should include:
1) an assessment of article content compliance with its title;
2) an assessment of the relevance, scientific novelty and practical significance in the context of the journal subject;
3) specific comments and / or description of the article merits;
4) the appropriateness of article publishing articles in the journal line at large.
