All incoming articles are reviewed! The term of reviewing the article is not more than 4 months.
Referee can be members of the editorial board of the journal, employees of Reshetnev University, as well as scientists from other universities and scientific organizations who are recognized experts on the subject of peer-reviewed materials.
The journal adopted the system of single blind (anonymous) review: referee knows the name of author, author does not know the name of referee. There are three or more referees for all articles in each issue. All contacts between an author and a referee are made through the editorial staff.

Each referee has the right to refuse to review if there is a clear conflict of interest, reflected in the perception and interpretation of the manuscript materials. Following the review of the manuscript, the referee makes recommendations on the article (each decision of the referee is justified): - the article is recommended for publication in this form; - the article is recommended for publication after corrections of the deficiencies noted by the referee; - the article needs additional review by another specialist; - the article can not be published in the journal.
If the referee has comments, the article is returned to the author for correcting. After correcting comments, the author re-sent the article to the referee.
In case if the authors refuse to correct the materials, they must notify the editorial office in writing or orally of their refusal to publish the article. If the authors do not return the corrected material after 3 months from the day the review was sent, even in the absence of information from the authors with refusal to correct the article, the editors remove it from the register. In such situations, the authors are sent a corresponding notice of the removal of the manuscript from the registration due to the expiration of the time allotted for correcting.
