Review policy

The journal "Newsletter on the results of scholarly work in sociology, criminology, philosophy, and political science" adheres to a double-blind peer review policy. Each article undergoes evaluation by the journal's editor and is subsequently reviewed by experts. Only after successfully passing the double-blind review stage can a manuscript progress to the publication preparation phase.

Should authors disagree with any comments from the reviewers, they have the option to engage in a scientific discussion, providing a scientific rationale for why a particular correction cannot be incorporated into the manuscript.

Throughout the manuscript evaluation, reviewers do not have the right to share the manuscript with third parties, utilize the data presented within, or employ the manuscript in any appropriate manner. If a reviewer believes that additional expert opinions are necessary, they should inform the editor rather than proceeding independently.

In cases where there is a potential conflict of interest during the double-blind review process, authors are required to disclose this at the manuscript submission stage. If a reviewer is unable to provide an impartial evaluation due to financial or non-financial conflicts of interest, they must decline the review and promptly notify the editorial office.

Instances of manipulation of the review process will be examined by the editorial board of the "Newsletter on the results of scholarly work in sociology, criminology, philosophy, and political science" on an individual basis, following the manipulation policy.
