References should consist of articles published for the last ten years as the minimum at 70% since citation of archaic sources makes international experts doubt in topicality of the information in the report. 

No more than 20% of self-citation of papers published in other editions is allowed. 

The list of References is arranged according to State Standard Р 7.0.5-2008. Citation on the proper source in the References should be mentioned in the text in square brackets (for example: [1]). References is placed as the common list in the end of the article in the order of its mentioning in the text.

REFERENCES – all Russian-language publications in this list should be transliterated (we recommend a resource http://translit.net/ru/?account=bsi (BSI) and their titles should be translated into English.  

The list of References should not include separating characters "//," "–" and "№." English-language sources are not transliterated.

RULES OF PEER-REVIEWING

All materials submitted for publication undergo a one-sided anonymous (blind) review (the authors of the manuscript do not know the reviewers).

1. The review is carried out by members of the editorial board or 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.

2. Each article is sent to at least two reviewers.

3. The decision to select a reviewer for the examination of the article is made by the editor-in-chief or technical editor. The review period is 2 weeks from the date of receipt of the article to the editorial office, but it can be extended at the request of the reviewer.

4. The review should be objective, and contain specific, clearly formulated comments and recommendations for the revision of the article. Any assessments insulting the honor and dignity of the authors of the article are unacceptable in the review.

5. Based on the results of the examination of the manuscript, the reviewer gives a conclusion (each decision of the reviewer is justified):

  • the article is recommended for printing in the presented form;
  • the article can be recommended for publication after the elimination of comments;
  • a significant revision of the article and re-reviewing is required;
  • the article is not recommended for printing.

6. If the review contains recommendations for correcting and finalizing the article, the editorial board of the journal sends the author the text of the review (a scanned copy of the review with deleted information about the reviewer) with a proposal to take them into account when editing the article or to refute them (partially or completely). The revision of the article should not take more than 2 months from the date of sending an e-mail to the authors about the need to make changes. After this period, the article is considered as newly received. The article finalized by the authors is sent for re-review or for confirmation of readiness for publication (depending on the first conclusion of the reviewer). 

7. If the authors refuse to rework the article, they must notify the editorial board in writing (by e-mail) of their refusal to publish.

8. Articles that have received positive conclusions from two reviewers are sent for editorial and publishing preparation. The authors are notified by e-mail about the publication dates of the article.

9. The decision to publish an article with multidirectional reviews is made by the editor-in-chief. In case of negative conclusions of two reviewers, the article is rejected by the decision of the editorial board; copies of the reviews or a reasoned refusal are sent to the authors by e-mail.

10. The editorial board does not enter into scientific polemics with authors and reviewers on the content of articles and comments expressed in the review.

11. The original reviews are kept in the editorial office for 5 years from the date of publication of the article.

12. Copies of the reviews are sent to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation upon request.
