Manuscripts are submitted by e-mail to the address email@example.com with cover letters, originally signed, in PDF or JPG file format.
The editorial board reserves the right not to consider manuscripts that violate the set rules above.
The editors send the manuscript submitted by the Author(s) to specialists in the relevant field (Doctor of Science, PhD) for peer review. Peer review period is up to 1.5 months. In case of receiving a negative review or a review containing recommendations for revising the manuscript, it is sent to the Author(s) back for revision. Names of reviewers are not disclosed.
After revision and eliminating the shortcomings indicated by reviewers, Author(s) resend the manuscript to the editorial board. The editorial board registers the manuscript as newly received and reconsiders it.
If the Author(s) does not agree with the negative opinion of the reviewer, the manuscript is sent for re-examination to another specialist. Upon receipt of a second negative review, the editorial board stops working on the article.

The authors have the right to indicate in the cover letter the names of those specialists who, in their opinion, should not review the manuscript due to a possible, usually professional, conflict of interest. This information is strictly confidential and is taken into account by the editors when organizing the peer review process.
If necessary (for Russian authors), the cover letter is accompanied by a scanned version of an expert examination report on the possibility of publishing the manuscript in the open press.
