Peer Review Process

Each submitted manuscript is reviewed by the editors. If it does not meet the minimum requirements (in terms of the subject matter, the scientific level, originality, availability of the scientific results and the design), then a reasoned refusal is sent to the author. Otherwise, the manuscript is reviewed.

The editors organize a double-blind review of all incoming manuscripts. All the reviewers are recognized experts on the subject of peer-reviewed materials and have publications on the subject of peer-reviewed articles over the past 3 (three) years.

The reviewer is selected in accordance with the recommendation of the responsible secretary, who is competent in the field of knowledge to which the content of the manuscript under consideration belongs. If necessary, the manuscript is sent to two reviewers (for example, when its topic is at the intersection of various scientific disciplines).

If the received review contains any comments or it is negative, then the author is recommended to finalize the manuscript and take into account these comments, or, accordingly, a reasoned refusal is sent to him, to which the review is attached.

Based on the results of the review, the following decisions are made:

"Recommend for publication"

"Do not recommend for publication"

"Recommend for publication with some revision."

If the review is positive and does not contain comments, then the manuscript is sent for a conclusion to the executive secretary. With a positive conclusion, he submits the manuscript for publication, after that it is considered at a meeting of the editorial board, which decides on its publication or rejection. In case of a negative conclusion or rejection of the manuscript by the editorial board, a reasoned refusal is sent to the author.

In the latter case, the author is sent a review indicating the comments that should be worked out.

The revised version is sent to the reviewer for re-reviewing.

Reviews are kept in the editorial office for 5 years. The editors of the journal "Remedium" send copies of the reviews to the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation upon receipt of a corresponding request by the editors.
