Peer Review Process

1. Only articles of corresponding topics will be accepted for publishing in the collection of scientific works “Theoretical and Methodical Problems of Children and Youth Education”. The Chief Editor has the right to reject articles that do not meet the theme or the Guidance for Authors requirements.

 

2. The Editorial Board supports the world standards of transparent review process, practicing “blind” review of manuscripts.

 

3. Articles submitted are sent to an expert from the Editorial Board during a week. The expert, having read and understand the annotation of the article, agrees or disagrees to review the material on the grounds of its conformity or inconformity to the theme of the collection.

 

4. In a two weeks’ period the reviewers review the material and assess its scientific level, filling in a “REVIEW FORM”. After that, the form is sent to the author.

 

5. In the abovementioned form the viewers indicate their comments and download the files with corrections or materials that can be used while refining the article.

 

6. After completing the main “REVIEW FORM”, the experts choose one of the following recommendations:

  • Accept the article – the article is ready for publication and is accepted without changes
  • Accept with corrections – the article is to be accepted if the author takes into account the corrections
  • Return for refining – the article is not accepted, it should be improved and repeatedly viewed
  • Refuse the article – the article does not meet the demands

 

7. After reviewing, all the corresponding information is sent to the author. In one or two weeks, the author finalizes the article and sends the final version of it to the editors’ office. If after this period the article is not returned (or the editorial board is not informed about any delay) – the article is refused.

 

Appellation Procedure:

  • If the author does not agree with the reviewer’s corrections, the author has the right to send an appellation to the editors’ office in the format “reviewer’s corrections – author’s comments”. This document is to be sent to the reviewer, and the editorial staff determines conclusively.
  • If no decision is reached, the editorial staff appoints another expert.

 

The editorial board considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that:

  • the manuscript is your own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously published work, including your own previously published work;
  • the manuscript is not currently under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or in press or published elsewhere; the manuscript contains nothing that is abusive, defamatory, libellous, obscene, fraudulent, or illegal;
  • for all manuscripts non-discriminatory language is mandatory. Sexist or racist terms must not be used.
