All articles submitted to the editorial board of the international scientific journal Almanac of International Law go through the peer review process.

The author provides the editors with an article that meets the requirements of the journal and the rules for preparing articles for publication. Manuscripts that do not meet accepted requirements are not allowed for further consideration.

To review articles, reviewers are members of the editorial board of the publication.

Reviewing is carried out confidentially according to the principles of double-blind reviewing (bilateral “blind” reviewing, when neither the author nor the reviewer know about each other). The interaction between the author and reviewers is carried out by correspondence by e-mail through the executive secretary of the journal.

After the final analysis of the article, the reviewer provides the final recommendations. The editors e-mail the author of the review results to the author: accepted for publication, accepted for publication with comments, rejected.

Responsibilities and Obligations of Reviewers

The reviewer assists the editorial board in deciding whether or not to publish the article. In addition, the reviewer helps the author to correct and improve his work.

Any scientific work that is subject to review is considered as a confidential document, is not subject to discussion with third parties.

Peer review is always carried out objectively. Personal criticism of the authors is unacceptable. Reviewers should express their opinions clearly with constructive comments and advice.
