Review Process & Reviewers

Peer Review Process

The Editorial Board makes a preliminary assessment of the texts submitted for publication, taking into account relevance of the subject, compliance with general rules for the preparation of scientific articles and meeting basic formal and language requirements. Only those articles that meet the basic principles of publication, that is, they are compatible with the Guidelines for Authors are sent to the reviewers. Texts correct in substance, but not in accordance with the guidelines will be sent to the authors for improvement prior to  their further assessment by the reviewers.

All pre-approved articles are evaluated by two reviewers external to the unit from which the  work originates; at least one of the reviewers is affiliated in a foreign institution other than the nationality of the author of the work to avoid conflict of interest. In disputable cases additional reviewers are appointed. The SAAC editors apply the double-blind review process (anonymity of authors and reviewers). Reviewers are appointed by the Scientific Council, taking into account the principle that the reviewer cannot be dependent on the author. The review is anonymous and confidential. The peers are not allowed to use their knowledge of the manuscript  prior to its publication. The review is in a writing (form) and ends with the statement for the release of the article for publication or its rejection. In the case of conditional admission of the article to publication (the general opinion is positive, but the reviewer points out the need for changes and amendments) the reviewer is required to clearly specify his reservations and conditions for accepting the text for printing.

Review Form: download

The author is notified of the review results  and has the right to respond to the comments. Then he/she is obliged to incorporate the agreed amendments in the text. Updated article is accepted for printing after the revised version has been accepted by the reviewer(s). In the case of minor amendments, their acceptance is  carried out by the Scientific Council. Either positive and n egative reviews and conditionally approving of the text for publication are made available to the authors but with maintenance of reviewer’s anonymity. The names of the reviewers of individual publications are not disclosed; the journal gives to public news list of cooperating reviewers after the new volume of SAAC is officially published.
