Duties of the Editorial Board

Manuscript Evaluation

All submitted manuscripts must contain new nontrivial scientific results not previously published elsewhere.

The Journal Solar-Terrestrial Physics adopts a double-blind peer review process; peer reviewers make reasoned critical comments on the level and clarity of the presented material, its relevance to the scope of the Journal, originality and veracity of results. Peer reviewers' recommendations form the basis for the final decision on publication of the manuscript.

The Editorial Board is ultimately responsible for the decision on publication.

The Editorial Board takes a decision on publication in accordance with the Journal's policy and the current Copyright Law.

The Editorial Board evaluates manuscripts by focusing solely on their scientific content regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, citizenship, and political opinions of the authors.

A manuscript, if accepted for publication, is published in the Journal; all rights are reserved by the authors.

Confidentiality

The editors, all members of the Editorial Board and Publishing House must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept confidential and may not be legally disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and other editorial advisers.

The editors may not legally use the unpublished material contained in the manuscript for their own research without written consent from the author.

Conflict of Interest and Resolution of Ethical Conflicts

If a conflict of interest arises from competitive relations, collaboration, or other relationships and connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions related to the submitted manuscript, the Editor-in-Chief sends the manuscript for consideration to another member of the Editorial Board.

The editors should require all participants to declare existing competing interests. If a conflict of interest comes to light after publication, the Editorial Board must publish corrections.

If an ethics complaint about a submitted manuscript or a published paper is filed, the Editor-in-Chief must take reasonable response measures in cooperation with the Publisher (or society). Each report about unethical behavior is considered, even if it comes years after the publication of the article. If a complaint is supported, corresponding corrections, denials, or apologies are published.

DUTIES OF REVIEWERS

Contribution to Editorial Decision

Expert evaluation assists the editor in making editorial decisions, and cooperation between the editor and an author may help the author to improve his/her manuscript.

Promptness

Any reviewer who feels unqualified to review the manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should contact the Editor-in-Chief so as to excuse himself/herself from the peer review process.

Confidentiality

Any manuscripts received for peer review should be treated with strict confidentiality. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except when authorized by the Editor-in-Chief.

Standards of Objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly, with supporting arguments.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by authors. Any statements, conclusions, or arguments that have been used previously in other publications should be appropriately cited or quoted. Any similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper should be reported to the Editor-in-Chief.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Unpublished material contained in submitted manuscripts must not be used by the reviewer for personal research without the express prior written consent from the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through the peer review process must be kept confidential and must not be used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider and evaluate the manuscripts in which they have a personal interest.

DUTIES OF AUTHORS

Reporting Standards

The authors of manuscripts should present an accurate account of the work carried out as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable

Originality and Plagiarism

The contributors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. If the authors use text or graphic information obtained from works of others, they should appropriately cite or quote it or have the express written consent from the author.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

Authors should guarantee that their works are original. If some elements of the manuscript have been previously published, authors must refer to the previous publication(s) in the manuscript itself and show a significant difference between the new work and the previous one. Verbatim copying of his/her own works and their paraphrasing are not allowed — authors can use their previously published texts only as a basis for new conclusions. The Journal's policy allows the consideration of manuscripts not accepted for publication by another journal or full papers expanding on previously published preliminary results, i.e. abstracts or posters presented at conferences.

Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source.

Authorship of the Paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. The corresponding author should give due acknowledgement to all those who have substantially contributed to the research.

The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are listed in the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

All authors should disclose in their manuscripts any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works

If the author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her published work, he/she should promptly notify the Editor-in-Chief or the Publisher of the Journal and assist them in eliminating or correcting the errors. If the Editor-in-Chief or the Publisher is notified by a third party that a published paper contains significant errors, the author should promptly remove or correct them, or prove correctness of the original paper.

If an ethics complaint about a submitted manuscript or a published paper is filed, the Editor-in-Chief must take reasonable response measures in cooperation with the Publisher (or society). Each report about unethical behavior is considered, even if it comes years after the publication of the article. If a complaint is supported, corresponding corrections, denials, or apologies are published.

DUTIES OF REVIEWERS

Contribution to Editorial Decision

Expert evaluation assists the editor in making editorial decisions, and cooperation between the editor and an author may help the author to improve his/her manuscript.

Promptness

Any reviewer who feels unqualified to review the manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should contact the Editor-in-Chief so as to excuse himself/herself from the peer review process.

Confidentiality

Any manuscripts received for peer review should be treated with strict confidentiality. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except when authorized by the Editor-in-Chief.

Standards of Objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly, with supporting arguments.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by authors. Any statements, conclusions, or arguments that have been used previously in other publications should be appropriately cited or quoted. Any similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper should be reported to the Editor-in-Chief.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

Unpublished material contained in submitted manuscripts must not be used by the reviewer for personal research without the express prior written consent from the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through the peer review process must be kept confidential and must not be used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider and evaluate the manuscripts in which they have a personal interest.

DUTIES OF AUTHORS

Reporting Standards

The authors of manuscripts should present an accurate account of the work carried out as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable

Originality and Plagiarism

The contributors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. If the authors use text or graphic information obtained from works of others, they should appropriately cite or quote it or have the express written consent from the author.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

Authors should guarantee that their works are original. If some elements of the manuscript have been previously published, authors must refer to the previous publication(s) in the manuscript itself and show a significant difference between the new work and the previous one. Verbatim copying of his/her own works and their paraphrasing are not allowed — authors can use their previously published texts only as a basis for new conclusions. The Journal's policy allows the consideration of manuscripts not accepted for publication by another journal or full papers expanding on previously published preliminary results, i.e. abstracts or posters presented at conferences.

Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, must not be used or reported without explicit, written permission from the source.

Authorship of the Paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. The corresponding author should give due acknowledgement to all those who have substantially contributed to the research.

The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are listed in the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest

All authors should disclose in their manuscripts any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works

If the author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her published work, he/she should promptly notify the Editor-in-Chief or the Publisher of the Journal and assist them in eliminating or correcting the errors. If the Editor-in-Chief or the Publisher is notified by a third party that a published paper contains significant errors, the author should promptly remove or correct them, or prove correctness of the original paper.

Initial Review

The editor will perform an initial review of the submitted manuscript to ensure that it fits the Journal's criteria. If the manuscript is not within the remit of the Journal, it will be rejected. The editor will notify the author about this, stating reasons for the refusal.

If the paper is inconsistent with the formatting guidelines, it will be returned to the author for revision.

The paper which meets the requirements and falls within the remit of the Journal will be sent for review.

Peer Review

All papers submitted for publication in Solar-Terrestrial Physics (Journal) are reviewed by leading Russian and international experts. All reviewers are recognized experts in peer-reviewed journals and have had publications of peer-reviewed articles within the last 3 years. Peer review is anonymous.

In accordance with the results of peer review, a submitted paper can be rejected and sent to the author for revision, or can be accepted for publication.

Peer reviewer should:

  • critically analyze the content of the paper to determine whether or not the paper merits publication;
  • point out errors in methodology and instrumentation (if any);
  • suggest how the author should revise the paper.

After receiving a review with comments or suggestion about how to revise the paper, the editor will send it to the author to correct the mistakes found in the manuscript. After receiving the author's response, the paper will be sent to another review; and the reviewer will recommend this manuscript for publication or rejection. If the author disagrees with the opinion of one of the reviewer, the paper will be sent to the third reviewer. If the author disagrees with the opinion of two reviewers and does not make corrections suggested by the reviewers, the paper will be rejected.

The submitted paper is also rejected if there are two negative reviews. In this case, the editor sends a notification email signed by the Executive Secretary of the Journal.

With two positive reviews, the submitted paper is approved for publication. The Executive Secretary of the Journal sends a corresponding notification email to the author.

The Editorial Board makes the final decision on publication of the manuscript and approves the content of the Journal.

Pear review and approval process for publication of papers take from 30 to 60 days. The Editorial Board can make a decision about unscheduled publication of a paper in view of its relevance.

Preparation of a paper for publication made by the Editorial Board consists in standard proofreading and copyediting. All corrections made in a paper are agreed upon by the author.

Reviews are kept in the Publishing House and Editorial Board for five years; copies of the reviews are available on request from the Russian Federation Ministry of Education and Science.

Publishing Agreement

After a paper has been accepted for publication, the author concludes an agreement with the Publishing House. The author should provide necessary data, print the agreement, sign it, and send it to the Publishing House.

Publication

After publication of a Journal issue, the Editor-in-Chief assigns a DOI number to each paper and gives information about it to the Russian Scientific Information Center and the bibliographic database AstrophysicsDataSystem.

Each author receives a notification email about publication of their papers, with output data (Journal title, year, number, pages, and DOI). The PDF version of the article is attached.

To have a printed version of your paper, you can subscribe to the Journal or buy a separate issue, sending a request to the Publishing House: Subscription service, Limited Liability Company "Scientific Publishing Centre INFRA-M" 31B, Polyarnaya St., Build 1, Moscow, 127282, Russia.
