The procedure for reviewing articles sent to the editorial office of the peer-reviewed publication

"Power and management in the East of Russia"

A prerequisite for publication of an article in the journal is the passage of review procedure consisting of the following stages.

1. The author sends the manuscript of the article that meets the necessary formal and stylistic requirements to:

2. Upon receipt of the manuscript to the Editorial Office, the latter performs its initial review within 10 days and checks for compliance with general formal and qualitative requirements, including compliance with the subject of the journal. In particular, the index of originality of the publication when it is checked by the "Anti-Plagiarism" system should be at least 80%. In case of non-compliance with these requirements, the article is not accepted for consideration, about which the Editorial Board notifies the author.

3. If the article is accepted for consideration, it is sent, as a rule, to two reviewers for review. Reviewers may include the members of the Editorial Team and Editorial Board, as well as external experts. All reviewers are recognized experts on the subject of peer-reviewed materials and have had publications on the subject of the reviewed article for the last 3 years.

4. The review is carried out anonymously: the names of the author and reviewers are not disclosed to each other. The review is submitted by the reviewer within 3 to 5 weeks.

Reviewers in their reviews express one of the following opinions:

a) the article can be published without significant adjustments;

b) the article is absolutely not ready for publication;

c) publication is possible after a certain revision.

At the same time, the reviewer is guided by the following criteria:

1) contribution to the economic and/or sociological sciences of the theoretical constructions and generalizations contained in the manuscript;

2) empirical contribution, that is, how important and new is the primary material that is introduced into the scientific circulation in the manuscript;

3) relevance and completeness of the used sources;

4) the quality of research: design, working hypotheses, methodology, analysis, interpretation;

5) composition of the article and clarity of presentation;

           6) the degree of reflection in the article of the current state of research in the claimed field.

Reviewers' reviews – both positive and negative – are immediately sent to the author as they become available.

5. If the opinions of two reviewers do not coincide, the Editorial Board finds a third reviewer or makes a decision independently, informing the author about a possible delay in reviewing the manuscript.

6. The decision to accept the article for publication is made on the basis of reviews of the reviewers (in the case of three reviewers – on the basis of additional review of the article by the Editorial Board).

If there are two positive reviews (see option "a" above), the article is placed in the Editorial Office's "portfolio" for subsequent publication.

In case of two negative reviews or in case of one positive, one negative review and a negative opinion of the Editorial Board, the article is rejected, about which the Editorial Board sends a notification to the author.

If one or two reviewers believe that publication of the article is possible after a certain revision (option "b"), the author is given the opportunity to resubmit the revised article for publication within 30 calendar days. After submitting a revised article, the Editorial Board makes a final decision on the publication or rejection of the article within 14 calendar days based on the extent to which the criticism and comments of reviewers are taken into account by the author.

7. Reviews of publication are kept in the publishing house and in the editorial office for 5 years. The editorial board sends copies of licenses or a reasoned refusal to the authors of the submitted materials, and also undertakes to send copies of reviews to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation when the corresponding request is received by the editorial office.
