Description

Founded in 1932, the journal Mikrobiologiya (Microbiology) covers a wide range of problems in the areas of fundamental and applied microbiology. The journal publishes experimental and theoretical papers, reviews of trends in a range of fields of microbiological science, and short communications describing unusual observations. Particular attention is devoted to events in Russian and international science. The journal also publishes reviews of new books. While intended primarily for specialists at research institutes, Mikrobiologiya represents a valuable source of essential information for university research departments, industrial, agricultural, and environmental-control laboratories, and medical departments.

PEER REVIEW

Microbiology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 40 reviewers, both internal and external (85%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 60 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 180 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
