Procedure for the consideration of articles:

1.The manuscript submitted by the author is received by the Editorial Office of the journal (two versions of the manuscript, one of which should not contain information about the authors (name, place of work, information about the authors). The Specialist of the Department of Scientific Publications and Scientometric Resources (Editorial Office) - the journal manager - checks the manuscript for compliance with the technical requirements. Together with the manuscript, the author sends a cover letter to the editorial office of the journal (see the cover letter template) on the autonomous nature of the submitted manuscript, consent to check the article for plagiarism, inclusion in various databases and information systems, including full-text versions, in case of publication and granting exclusive rights to the publisher.

2. The Journal Manager checks the manuscript for originality through a licensed automatic plagiarism checker "Anti-Plagiarism.VUZ" (https://www.antiplagiat.ru/). Based on the results of the automatic plagiarism check, a full electronic report of the check is uploaded. Articles that do not receive a satisfactory result (the threshold percentage of originality of the article is 70%) will not be accepted for further review. The journal manager will notify corresponding author/author.

3. The journal manager sends the article, which has passed the necessary level of originality, to the Editor-in-Chief (Deputy Editor-in-Chief). The Editor-in-Chief (responsible editor or Deputy Editor-in-Chief) reviews the article for compliance with the journal's subject matter. In case of non-compliance, the editorial office sends a letter to the author with a justification for the refusal to publish. On average, the initial review of an article takes 2 weeks.

4.The Editor-in-Chief (the responsible Editor for the subject area) identifies a reviewer, scholar, or specialist in the relevant subject area for each article that has passed the initial selection process.

5.The journal manager then sends the manuscript with the full plagiarism check report to the reviewer to assess the possibility of publishing the article in the journal.

6.The journal uses the procedure of double-blind review when the Editorial Office does not disclose the names of authors and reviewers. The reviewer provides the Editorial Office with a justified review of an article, including the relevance of the topic studied and the author's contribution to the scientific field, and the level of the results obtained. All reviews contain a recommendation to publish the article (with or without modifications) or to reject it. All reviews are submitted to the editorial office of the journal.

7. Then reviews are sent to the Editor-in-Chief (Deputy Editor-in-Chief).

If a reviewer sends a review with comments, the journal manager sends a review of the article to the author with the note "finalize the article according to the reviewer's comments" with the consent of the Editor-in-Chief (responsible Editor in the field).  So that, the author should provide the edited version of the article as soon as it is possible. Then the edited version of the article is sent to the reviewer for reconsideration. This process is repeated until the final decision of the reviewer on the article is received. In case of agreement with the reviewer's comments, but an unscrupulous approach to correcting them (after the third submission of the manuscript without completely eliminating the comments), the manuscript is rejected. In case of disagreement with the reviewer's comments, the author/authors send a letter with justification to the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. The Editor-in-Chief, having considered the appeal of the author/authors, makes a final decision regarding the article.

8. All reviews and the decision of the Editorial Board on the article are sent to the main author (or the Corresponding Author) indicated in the article's metadata when submitting the article. All materials on the article (final version of the article, reviews, plagiarism report and other documents, if any) are presented at the Editorial Board meeting. The decision on the possibility of publishing the article in the journal is made by the Editorial Board based on the reviews. Articles that have a negative review and have been rejected by the Editorial Board are not accepted for reconsideration. If there are controversial issues, the final decision on the articles is made by the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. On average, the decision on publication is made within 8 months.
