  1. Reviewing of manuscripts of scientific articles is carried out to maintain a high scientific and theoretical level of the Journal of Physics and Electronics  and to select the most valuable and relevant scientific papers.
  2. The Journal of Physics and Electronics uses Double-Blind Peer Review :

  • the reviewer does not know the personal information of the author / authors;

    The editor recommends using the developed standard review form.

  • correctness of the given mathematical calculations, graphs, drawings;
  • assess how the author's conclusions relate to existing scientific concepts;
  • adherence by the authors of the rules of scientific ethics, correctness of references to literary sources.
    It is advisable to note in the reviews the conformity of style, logic and availability of scientific teaching, as well as make conclusions about the authenticity and validity of conclusions of the author (authors) in this article.
  1. Scientific papers may be sent for further consideration:
  • insufficient expert qualification, indicated in the issues considered in the scientific paper;
  • insufficiently high level of primary expert judgment;
  • acute controversy of the provisions expressed in the scientific paper.
  1. The executed review is sent to the editor by e-mail in the form of a scan copy
  2. The editorial office sends copies of reviews to the authors (unnamed, so as not to disclose the data of the reviewer) or the reasoned refusal of the editorial office to publish this particular manuscript.
