Procedure for reviewing articles submitted for publication in the academic and research peer-reviewed journal Doctor.Ru

1. Articles submitted for publication in Doctor.Ru are subject to mandatory review.

2. Articles are reviewed by a reviewer from Doctor.Ru specialising in the corresponding topic who is an expert from the editorial council or an independent expert recommended by the editorial  council. Reviewers are highly qualified scientists with a scientific degree who have published at least 3 papers in the topic of the reviewed article.

3. The reviewer may not be an author, co-author or scientific supervisor of the author who wrote the reviewed article.

4. The Journal uses double-blind peer review. The reviewer does not know the name of the author; the author does not know the name of the reviewer, except in cases when the reviewer wants to make contact with the author.

5. Reviewers are notified that articles are the author’s intellectual property and are confidential.

6. We aim to limit the review process to 3-4 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer’s request.

7. A review answers questions in a specific form. The length of the review is not specified. The review should provide unbiased information concerning the following:

- Article relevance and correspondence to the journal topic.

- Correspondence of the contents to the title.

- Academic novelty, theoretical and practical relevance.

- Authenticity of main research results.

- Use of literary and other references.

- Article appearance.

- Pluses and minuses of the article, corrections and amendments needed.

Following the analysis, the reviewer decides whether it is appropriate to publish the article or not: ‘recommended for publication’, ‘recommended for publication with corrections’ or ‘not recommended for publication’.

8. Once the recommended corrections have been made, the article is reviewed by the same reviewer. If the author disagrees with the reviewer’s opinion, the article is sent to another reviewer.

9. Kindly note that positive review does not guarantee the acceptance, as final decision in all cases lies with the experts of the relevant subject  from among members of the editorial council. In disputable cases, the decision on the expediency of publication is made by the issue editor of Doctor.Ru.

10. If the review is positive, the publication order is determined, the editor’s office informs the author about it and indicates the terms of publication.

11. If there are two negative reviews by two reviewers or one negative review of the corrected version of the article, the article is rejected without discussion by the editorial council. 

12. The editor’s office sends a refusal to the author giving grounds for the refusal, and sends copies of any reviews to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation if requested.

13. Also, articles may not be published in the following cases:

- If they have previously been published in other sources including online sources, or accepted for publication in other sources, or offered for and pending publication.

- Where the reviewer provides constructive comments: if the author fails to follow the recommendations and does not provide any substantiated objections.

- If their appearance does not comply with the requirements given in open sources, if the author refuses to correct them.

14. If the author refuses to make corrections to the materials, they should notify the editor’s office in writing about their refusal to publish the article. If the author fails to provide the corrected version within a month from when the review was sent, the editor’s office de-registers the article and notifies the author.

15. If the review is positive, the publication order is determined.

16. Doctor.Ru will keep the review for 5 years as from the date when it is signed by the reviewer. Copies of reviews may be provided to the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles upon request.

Authors of original articles should provide an accurate and detailed report on their research and conclusions for unbiased discussion. The work should contain any information to be reproduced by other researchers.

Piracy of ideas and data will be examined during scientific review, and after publication of the manuscript when claims are submitted by users/readers. The editorial office will notify the author if the article cannot be published or will be retracted (once published) if any unauthorised use of information (results) or ideas is proven.

Retraction 

Retraction of a published article is a measure of last resort and is performed if any of the following cases are found that were unknown during review:

  • Piracy in published material

  • Publication of the article in several editions

  • Falsification (e.g. experimental data frame-up)

  • Gross errors (e.g. incorrect interpretation of results) making its scientific relevance doubtful

If the author finds gross errors or inaccuracies in the publication, the author should inform editor’s office of the journal and assist the editorial office in the prompt retraction of the publication and correction of errors. If the editor’s office receives valid information from a third party that the publication contains gross errors, the author should retract the article or correct the errors as soon as possible, or refute the claim regarding the errors, by providing the editor’s office with proof.

If there is an ethics claim or a conflict regarding the manuscript or the article published, the editor’s office shall take reasonable measures to restore infringed rights; and if there are errors, such errors should be corrected or refuted. Any claim of improper conduct will be examined, irrespective of when the article was published. 

Article retraction procedure:

  1. Article retraction can be initiated by authors, readers, reviewers and the editorial office by submitting a written claim to the editorial office.
  2. The editor’s office  examine the claim, if necessary requesting expert opinion from members of the editorial council.
  3. The editor’s office  decide to retract the article if there is sufficient evidence for its retraction.
  4. The editor’s office  notifies the initiator of the article retraction of the outcome of the claim in writing.
  5. If it is decided to retract the article, information on the retraction of the article is published in the journal together with the article meta data.
  6. If articles from the journal where the article is retracted are indexed in any databases, an email is sent to the databases to notify them about the retraction of the article and the reasons for the retraction.
