Review rules


All articles submitted to the editorial board, except for reviews and informational reports, go through the review process. The purpose of peer review is to promote the rigorous selection of author's manuscripts for publication and to make specific recommendations for their improvement. The review procedure is focused on the most objective assessment of the content of the scientific article, determining its compliance with the requirements of the journal and provides a comprehensive analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the article. Only articles that are scientifically valuable and contribute to solving pressing economic problems and problems are accepted for publication.

According to the editorial policy of the journal, the review process is anonymous for both the reviewer and the authors. The primary purpose of the peer review process is to eliminate cases of poor research practice and to ensure that the interests of authors, readers, editorial board, reviewers and the institution where the research was conducted are consistent and maintained. Reviewers evaluate the theoretical and methodological level of the article, its practical value and scientific significance. In addition, the reviewers determine the compliance of the article with the principles of ethics in scientific publications and provide recommendations on how to eliminate violations.

Reviewers are advised that the manuscripts they submit are the intellectual property of the authors and belong to the non-disclosable information. Reviewers are not allowed to make a copy of the article submitted for review or use knowledge of the content of the article before its publication. Reviewing takes place on a confidential basis, when information about the article (terms of receipt, content, stages and features of the review, comments of reviewers and final decision on publication) is not disclosed to anyone but the authors and reviewers. Violation of this requirement is possible only if there are signs or a statement about the falsity or falsification of the material of the article. The author of the peer-reviewed paper is given the opportunity to read the text of the review, in particular if he does not agree with the reviewer's conclusions.

Reviews are certified in the order established by the institution where the reviewer works. The review must be signed by the reviewer, indicating the position, academic degree, and academic title. The responsible secretary informs the authors within 7 days about receipt of the article, determines the correspondence of the article of the journal profile, requirements for design and sends it for review to the member of the editorial board, which has the scientific specialization closest to the topic of the article. Review period for maximum publication of the article up to 10 days.

The review should be signed by the reviewer, indicating the position, academic degree and academic title. If the article is rejected from the publication, the editorial board sends the author a reasoned refusal.
