Peer-reviewing of research papers submitted to “COMPUTATIONAL NANOTECHNOLOGY” journal
The papers submitted to the editorial office of the “COMPUTATIONAL NANOTECHNOLOGY” journal are to be obligatory peer-reviewed.
The peer-review includes the following steps:
1. Analysis of the paper compliance with the “Rules of manuscript submission for publication”. This analysis is performed by the Journal`s secretary within first three days after submission.
2. Peer review is performed by a specialist in the current research field, having a doctoral degree and no research or financial connection to the authors, or any other conflict of interest with the authors of the manuscript. The independent reviewer is selected by the editorial office. The peer-reviewing is a voluntary and confidential activity. Peer-reviewers are informed that the papers present an intellectual property of the authors and are a matter of non-disclosure. Peer-reviewers are prohibited of making copies of papers for private use. The case of suspicious non- reliable or probably falcified data should be reported to the Editorial officer. Corresponding author of the peer-reviewed paper is always familiarized with the text of the peer-review and the status of a lay-out of the article prior to confirming it for publication.
3. Paper analysis by the editorial board is performed for all submitted articles. The editor-in-chief confirms the list of articles for the next issue. The editor-in-chief is entitled to decline the article in the case of ignoring peer-reviewers comments by the authors or sent the manuscript for an extra peer-review. The editor-in-chief chooses extra peer-reviewers among the members of the editorial board or the editorial committee.
The duration of the peer-review is organized in a way to minimize the time of publication. The maximal duration of a peer-review is 1 month.
The final list of articles for the next issue is confirmed by the editor-in-chief after the lay-outing and before printing. The Editing officer makes the corresponding author familiar with the lay-out status of the article prior to author confirms the final text of the paper for publication. This is responsibility of the author to perform proper translation and check the English text after the editing when required.
The process of informing authors about the results of peer-review:
- after the positive peer-review the paper is entered in the line for publication according to the priority which is determined individually for each article. Peer- reviewers comments and information about the approximate time of publication are provided to the corresponding author upon request by email (email@example.com);
- after the negative peer-review the reply of the reviewer and the decision to deny the publication are sent to the author;
- if the peer-review contains recommendations to correct some parts of the paper, the text of the article is sent to the author to make the corrections or/and reply the reviewer. In this case the date of the primary submission is registered as a submission date;
- in case of disagreement with the reviewer(s) the author has a right to provide the editorial office with a well-reasoned reply to a peer-review. Then the paper can be sent for an extra peer-review or becomes a subject of a discussion by the Editorial Board;
- the articles corrected by the authors are sent for a secondary peer-review.
The following papers are not accepted for submission:
- non-compliant with the “Rules of manuscript submission for publication” if the authors decline to correct the technical errors.
- in case the authors do not support the comments of the peer-reviewers and do not provide any well-reasoned disproof.
The declined papers can be resubmitted to the journal for the general peer- review after the major revision.
