Editorial Board of the journal and reviewers constantly work on increasing the efficiency of papers manuscripts passing the stages of their check and preparation for print. In this respect, there are factors which force to give reject on a significant share of papers submitted for publication. The reasons for reject can be different. Main of them are given in Submission Guidelines for Authors and Editorial Policies and Publication Ethics.
The publishing house emphasizes that in no case place of work or country of residence of the scientist, his racial or religious affiliation can be the reason for reject.
In this respect, we ask the authors to pay attention to necessity of observing publication ethics principles. The submitted manuscripts should be relevant in content and comply with the aim, tasks and specialization of the journal.
The language of the manuscript should be professional, and the format should comply with the standards given. Weak English and incompliance with the format standards will not obligatorily lead to reject, but can delay the paper to pass until the author corrects the mistakes (revise-and-resubmit cycle).
The acceptance rate for the journal is calculated by us as a number of manuscripts accepted for publication compared with total number of manuscripts submitted in one year.
This rate is changeable for every year, but it demonstrates gradual and steady dynamics for decrease. By now, it is 35-40% .
To have a clear vision about period of consideration and process of review of your paper, you can always contact the Editorial Assistant. Period of paper consideration is not fixed and can be changed depending on different factors, but the employees of the publishing house will inform you during this period.
The average time of papers processing until first decision is made on the paper submitted (Turnaround –mean number of days to 1st decision) for the journal is 75 days.
