Review procedure

The primary examination is carried out by the editor-in-chief (deputy editor-in-chief). At the initial examination, the article's relevance to the magazine's subject, the rules of registration and the requirements established by the magazine's editorial board for scientific publications are assessed.

All articles submitted to the editorial board of the scientific journal "Mathematical structures and modeling" go through the reviewing institute.

The reviewer is selected by the editor-in-chief of the journal from among the members of the editorial board or leading experts in the field of this work. The author has the right to offer a list of two or three experts on the subject of a scientific article, who agree to write a review of his work. The editorial board selects one of the reviewers from the presented list and agrees with him on writing a review. If it is not possible to contact the reviewers suggested by the author the editorial board can appoint a reviewer from their list.

Reviewers should take into account that the manuscripts sent to them are private property of the authors and refer to information that is not subject to disclosure. Reviewers are not allowed to make copies of articles for their needs.

The time for writing a review is determined in agreement with the reviewer. The review should reveal the relevance of the presented material, the degree of scientific novelty of the research, determine the correspondence of the text proposed for publication to the general profile of the issue and the style of presentation.

The reviewer makes a conclusion about the possibility of publishing the article: "recommended", "recommended taking into account correction of comments marked by the reviewer" or "not recommended". In case of negative review, the editorial board sends to the author a motivated refusal, certified by the editor-in-chief or his deputy.

If there are recommendations in the review for correcting and finalizing the article, the text of the review is sent to the author with the proposal to take them into account when preparing a new version of the article, or reasonably (partially or completely) refute them. The article revised by the author is sent again to the review and is considered in the general order. In this case, the date of receipt of the revised article is considered to be the date when the revised article was returned.

After the editorial board has made a decision to admit the article to the publication, the author is informed about it and the terms of publication are indicated.

The originals of the reviews are stored in the editorial office for five years.
