Peer review

All scientific papers the editors of the journal “Science and Education” receive should undergo double-blind peer review (a reviewer and an author of the manuscript do not know each other).

1. The members of the editorial board and guest reviewers who are head researchers in the field concerned in Russia and other countries. The editor-in-chief, deputy editor-in-chief, science editor, and managing editor make decision on a reviewer to be nominated to review a paper. The deadline is in 3-4 weeks, but on reviewer's request it may be postponed.

2. Each Reviewer has the right to refuse to review in case of apparent conflict of interests reflected in the paper perception and interpretation. Following the paper consideration a Reviewer gives a reasoned recommendation on the paper using one of the following options:

  • accepted (for publication as it was submitted);
  • minor revision (may be accepted for publication upon making Reviewer's amendments);
  • major revision (needs in significant corrections and re-review);
  • reject (the journal cannot publish the paper).

3. If the review advises revise and finalize the paper, the editors forward the reviewed text to the author with a proposal to take into account the Reviewer's remarks when preparing a new version of the paper or give arguments (partially or completely) to refute them. Finalizing should take, at most, 2 months from the date of sending the electronic message to the author to revise. The author-revised paper is again reviewed.

4. In case the authors refuse to revise their material, they have to notify, in writing or orally, the editors of their rejection to publish the paper. If the authors do not return a finalized version in 3 months from the date of sending review the editors cancel its registration even there is no authors' notification with their refusal of revising. In such situations an appropriate notification is sent to authors that the paper registration has been cancelled because of expiry date.

5. If the Author and Reviewers have the irrepressible conflicts regarding the paper the editors have the right to submit it for further review. In conflict situations, the Editor in- Chief takes decision at a meeting of the Editorial Board.

6. The Editorial Board makes decision on rejection slip in accordance with Reviewers' recommendations. The paper rejected by the Editorial Board for publication is not accepted for review. The rejection slip is forwarded to the Author either through e-mail or through a personal account at the journal's website.

7. If the Editorial Board of the journal accepts the paper for publication the editors inform the author on the terms of publication.

8. A positive review of the paper is not enough. The Editorial Board makes final decision to publish it. In conflict situations the Editor-in-Chief may take decision.

9. The journal Editorial Board stores the reviews of original versions for 5 years. Review copies are sent to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation on request.

Publishing Ethics

1. Introduction

1.1. Publication of materials in peer-reviewed journals is not only a simple way of scientific communication, but also makes a significant contribution to the development of the scientific knowledge in the field concerned. It is therefore important to agree on the standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in publication activities, i.e. the Author, the journal Editor, the Reviewer, the Publisher and the Scientific Society.

1.2. The Publisher not only supports scientific communications and invest in this process, but is also is responsible for compliance with all current guidelines in the paper under publication.

1.3. The Publisher is committed to strict supervision of scientific materials. Our journal programs are an impartial “report” of the development of scientific thought and research, so we are also aware of the responsibility for the proper representation of these “reports”, especially in terms of the ethical aspects of the publications described in this document.

2. Duties of Editors

2.1. Publication decision

The Editor of the scientific journal “Science and Education of Bauman MSTU” is personally responsible for making publication decision, often in cooperation with the appropriate Scientific Society.

The Editor, proving positive that the publication presents erroneous statements or conclusions, has to inform the Publisher (and/or the relevant Scientific Society) to provide the early notice of making revisions, publication withdrawal, expressions of concern and other situation-relevant claims.

2.6. Involvement and cooperation in investigations

The Editor (or Scientific Society) takes adequate steps in case of ethical claims relating to the reviewed manuscripts or published materials. Such steps, generally speaking, include interaction with Authors of the manuscript and argumentation of a relevant claim or requirement, but they can also concern the interaction with relevant institutions and research centers.

3. Duties of Reviewers

3.1. Contribution to editorial board

The review helps the Editor to make publication decision, and through appropriate interaction with the Authors may also enable the Author to improve the quality of the work.
