PEER REVIEW

The process of peer review is guided by the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE's Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers) (ссылка

http://publicationethics.org/files/Peer%20review%20guidelines_0.pdf).

A blind peer review method is mandatory for processing of all scientific manuscripts submitted to the editorial staff of NDT World. This implies that the reviewer is not aware of the manuscript's authorship, neither does the author have any contact with the reviewer.

Review procedure:

1. The Editor-in-chief or deputy Editor-in-chief (hereinafter referred to as Editor) chooses a specialist for peer review. Peer reviews may be performed by leading experts in corresponding areas of science. The review process is limited to 2 weeks, though in some cases the schedule may be adjusted at the reviewer's request.

2. A reviewer has an option to refuse the assessment in case there is any conflict of interest that may affect perception or interpretation of the manuscript.

3. Upon completion of the examination the reviewer is expected to present to the Editorial Board one of the following recommendations:

  • accept the paper for publication without amendment;
  • send the paper for additional peer review;
  • return the paper to the author for correction according to the reviewer's comments;
  • reject the paper (with the mandatory justification).

4. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author(s) either implement the corrections, or dispute them reasonably. Authors are required to limit their revision to 2-3 weeks and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.

5. If the author(s) and the reviewer meet insoluble disagreements regarding revision of the manuscript, the Editor-in-chief resolves the conflict by his own authority.

6. A positive review does not guarantee the acceptance as the final decision in all cases lies with the Editorial Board. The final decision-making authority in all cases lies with the Editor in-chief.

7. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 3 years.

  • return the paper to the author for correction according to the reviewer's comments;
  • reject the paper (with the mandatory justification).

4. If the reviewer has recommended any refinements, the editorial staff would suggest the author(s) either implement the corrections, or dispute them reasonably. Authors are required to limit their revision to 2-3 weeks and resubmit the adapted manuscript within this period for final evaluation.

5. If the author(s) and the reviewer meet insoluble disagreements regarding revision of the manuscript, the Editor-in-chief resolves the conflict by his own authority.

6. A positive review does not guarantee the acceptance as the final decision in all cases lies with the Editorial Board. The final decision-making authority in all cases lies with the Editor in-chief.

 

7. Original reviews of submitted manuscripts remain deposited for 3 years.
