The journal uses double-blind peer review (the author and reviewer do not know each other's names). Both internal and external peer review is applied: both members of the editorial board and external experts (including nonresident and foreign) are involved in the expert evaluation of the publication. Peer review is carried out by independent experts and in compliance with the ethical principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
The reviewers of the articles are acknowledged experts on the topics of the considered articles, who have publications within this thematic area. Reviews from authors are not accepted, the editorial office organizes the review process and communication with experts independently. For each article considered for publication, there are at least two reviews from two independent experts. Copies of reviews or refusal shall be sent to the authors.
The author has the right to offer a dialogue to the reviewer(s), which is carried out through the mediation of the editorial Board, maintaining the anonymity of both parties. In case of disagreement with the expert opinion or its individual paragraphs, the author sends reasonable objections in writing to the editorial office (firstname.lastname@example.org). The final decision on the publication or refusal to publish the article is made by the editorial board.
Reviews are stored in the journal for 5 years and, according to the legislation of the Russian Federation, could be sent to the Ministry of Science and Higher ducation of the Russian Federation upon request.
