PEER REVIEW

Cosmic Research is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single/double blind depending on the paper level. Our team of reviewers includes over 35 reviewers, both internal and external (70%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 14 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 75 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board or the Editor-in-Chief.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
