To publish a scientific article in a journal, you need to follow a series of steps:
Publication in a scientific journal is carried out within 30-45 days from the date of the end of materials acceptance.
- The author submits all required materials via email.
- Completed submission is sent out to two or three reviewers.
- Reviewers critique articles and send them back to the editorial office for processing.
- After the initial review, Editor-in-Chief releases reviews to authors.
- The authors are asked to respond to reviewers and make necessary corrections.
- The article is sent out for re-review.
- Editor-in-Chief may accept, reject, accept with minor alterations, or sent out for the third review.
- If accepted, the author must submit the final version. The version will be added to the “in-press” queue with the publisher.
- Prior to publication, the publisher will send galleys to authors. No edits may be made after galleys are approved.
- The article is printed to Journal
All manuscripts must be within the area of interest of its journal’s scope and further the knowledge in individual areas as specified in each journal’s aim and scope; be original in authorship and publication; be based on adequate factual record; and be significant in data or treatment. Reviewers will evaluate the suitability of the manuscript for publication and state justification for publication. The language of publication is Russian – English and the manuscript must be understandable and correct in spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
The Editorial Process
A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to Globus journals alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the Globus readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.
Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in our journal are sent to two or more expert reviewers. During submission, the contributor is requested to provide names of two or three qualified reviewers who have had experience in the subject of the submitted manuscript, but this is not mandatory. The reviewers should not be affiliated with the same institutes as the contributor/s. However, the selection of these reviewers is at the sole discretion of the editor. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identity. Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/ rejection/ amendments in manuscript) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.
Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the manuscript to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the journal publishes articles online as ‘Ahead of Print’ immediately on acceptance.
