The reviewing process in the Journal «Fundamentalnaya I Prikladnaya Gidrofizika»
The manuscript presented to the Journal is considered on compliance with a thematic orientation of the Journal, scientific level and the rules of manuscript preparation. Then it is forwarded to one of the associate editors (the leading researcher in this scientific field) who appoints two reviewers from the list of the associate editors or advisers of the Journal or invites the well-known scientists in this field.
We use double-blind peer review method: the manuscript is sent to the reviewer without the names of the authors and organization. The received review without the reviewer’s name is forwarded to the author to discuss remarks.
The manuscript corrected by the author and/or the answer to reviewer’s remarks are sent to the reviewer repeatedly. In case if the reviewer still has some comments the author gets a second review. After the reviewer accepts the editing of the author’s manuscript the editors make a decision on the publication.
When obtaining the negative review of the manuscript it is obligatory to send it to another reviewer. Two negative reviewer’s conclusions lead to the motivated refusal to publish the author’s paper.
The associate editor (the leading researcher in the presented manuscript scientific field) follows up all the reviewing process and makes reports about that at the Journal’s Editorial Board meetings. All decisions about presented manuscript are made collectively at the Journal’s Editorial Board meetings.
