Peer-review process

The process of acceptance, review and publication of materials

Getting manuscripts

Manuscripts are issued in accordance with the requirements put forward by the editorial board of the collection "Vegetable and melon growing". The materials drawn up by the template as well as the information about the authors are sent to the journal's e-mail address. Manuscripts are considered for compliance with the set requirements and can be returned to remaking. Notice of receipt of manuscripts is sent to authors by e-mail indicated by them .

Review process

The collection has a system of double secret review. Reviewers receive encrypted articles, and the author does not know the reviewer. All materials are evaluated in accordance with the criteria given in paragraph 3. The reviewer after reviewing the materials can make one of the following decisions:

  • to publish as it is;
  • to publish with minor changes;
  • to send for re-reviewing (if significant changes are required);
  • to reject (if significant processing is required, but the author may submit the revised material again);
  • to refuse without permission to send the article for the second time (if the material has fundamental defects, contains plagiarism or does not correspond to the subject of the magazine).

Adoption of the article for printing and printing materials

The final decision on the submitted materials is taken by the editorial board.

The review results, comments and recommendations are sent to the author via e-mail.

The process of reviewing the article lasts no more than 3 months.

The editorial board reserves the right to a minor literary edition of the texts and abbreviations with the preservation of the author's style.

Additional issues of the journal can be purchased if they are available.

All editions of the collection pass the recommendation procedure for printing by the Academic Council of the Institute of Vegetable, water-melon, melon and gourd growing of NAAS.
