Editorial policy

Review Policy

All manuscripts submitted to the editorial board of the journal are subject to mandatory single-blind peer review (the authors of the manuscript do not receive information about the reviewers, the reviewer knows the author's name). The peer review is carried out in accordance with the Ethical Principles of the reviewer's activity (link), as well as the Peer Review Procedure and the Peer Review Regulations adopted in the journal (links). Articles are peer reviewed by internal and external experts: members of the editorial board, as well as invited reviewers-leading experts in the relevant field of science from Russia and other countries.


Citation Policy

The citation policy adopted in the journal is based on the COPE guidelines. These recommendations on manipulating citation are posted in the "Discussion Papers" section and are available herehttps://publicationethics.org/citation-manipulation-discussion-document 

The editorial board of the journal supports the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles, thereby emphasizing both the importance of maximum accessibility and openness of data for the development of universal scientific knowledge, and respecting the rights of a particular author in recognition of his merits: https://www.force11.org/datacitationprinciples 

In accordance with the COPE guidelines, the journal expects that part of text taken directly from publications of other researchers will be quoted and contain full information about the cited source. Formulas, tables, illustrations and other non-textual material also require links to the source. The editors expect that the original sources will be indicated not only in direct citation, but also in the case of retelling (paraphrase) and summaries. These types of integration of other research materials into your paper also require citation of the source. 

The editors advise authors to avoid unnecessary and unreasonable citation of their own publications, as well as citing publications of colleagues, employees of affiliated institutions and other articles with the authors of which you are in personal or other relationships that may affect the objective choice of the citation source. 

We dont welcome unjustified citation from secondary sources (except when the original source is not available), mutual citation. 

We also recommend you to get acquainted with the information on citation manipulation on the website of the Association of Science Editors and Publishers and join the discussion of this material: 



Anti-plagiarism policy 

The editorial board of the «Journal of Advanced Materials and Technologies» carries out an internal expertise of the manuscript, which includes a multi-stage check for textual borrowing, including using the "Anti-Plagiarism" system (link). If incorrect textual borrowings are detected, as well as if the text has a low coefficient of originality, the manuscript is rejected from publication. Review articles that require more citations are reviewed by the editorial board on an individual basis. 

Please note that the editorial board may decide to re-check the published materials in order to detect illegal textual borrowings that could not be detected at the stage of publication, as well as to identify duplicate publications of the author in other publications. Additional verification of the manuscript at all stages of the editorial and publishing cycle and after its publication, is also carried out when reviewers, readers or other persons appeal for the facts of illegal borrowings. The editorial board considers plagiarism to be plagiarism of text, data, images, and ideas, including: 

- direct citation, paraphrase, summary without specifying the source; 

- use of illustrations, graphs, diagrams and other forms of graphical representation of information without specifying the source. 

The editorial board also strongly recommends against using any technical methods that artificially increase the uniqueness of the text. Articles that show signs of technical modifications will not be published in the journal, even after revision. 

In order to avoid plagiarism, all data developed by other authors, when used in the manuscript, should be provided with appropriate references. The editorial board of the «Journal of Advanced Materials and Technologies» recommends the authors following generally accepted recommendations for working with the data of other authors, as well as the Citation policy adopted in the journal (link). 

In case of detection of illegal textual borrowings or duplicate publication, the editorial board acts in accordance with the COPE rules. A published article may be withdrawn (retracted) in accordance with the rules of retraction of articles accepted in the journal (link).
